Next, a pure person. Leprosy was found in persons, clothing and houses. Rom. 5:1212Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (Romans 5:12) tells us that death came into the world by sin. So leprosy was like sin acting in the flesh. Not the doctor, but the priest was the man who could tell the truth about it. It wasn't easy to detect.
V. 2, 4, 6 If the raw flesh appeared, it was leprosy. When the flesh (the old nature) is active in us, sin is at work. It becomes evident.
V. 16-17 If the man was white all over, it was like a person today who confesses that there is no good in him, only sin, then he is clean Rom. 7:1818For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. (Romans 7:18). The great thing for the sinner today is to confess to God.
