Washing Hands and Running Water

“Anyone the man with a discharge touches without rinsing his hands with water must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening. ‘A clay pot that the man touches must be broken, and any wooden article is to be rinsed with water. ”  – Leviticus 15: 11

And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue, then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes; and he shall bathe his flesh in running water,and shall be clean. ”                                                                                                                        – Leviticus 15: 13
