'Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is unclean by the dead;

Charge the children of Israel, and let them send forth out of the camp every leper, and every one who has in issue of the reins, and every one who is unclean from a dead body.

“Instruct the sons of Israel to cast out of the camp every leper, and those who have a flow of seed, and those who have been polluted because of the dead;

both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not their camp, in the midst whereof I dwell.'

Whether male or female, send them forth out of the camp; and they shall not defile their camps in which I dwell among them.

cast out of the camp both male and female, lest they contaminate it while I am dwelling with you.”

And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp; as YHWH spoke unto Moses, so did the children of Israel.

And the sons of Israel did so, and they cast them out, beyond the camp, just as the Lord had spoken to Moses.
