References To Mold Found In Leviticus

Easter is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary as described in the New Testament.

Considering that Easter is one of the most important Christian festivals, I decided to review some of the quotes in Leviticus that cite mold.

Priests, it turns out, were the equivalent of today’s mold inspectors. Listed below are the specific passages cited in the bible.

Leviticus, Chapter 14: 39 – 47

On the seventh day the priest shall return to inspect the house. If the mildew has spread on the walls, he is to order that the contaminated stones be torn out and thrown into an unclean place outside the town. If the mildew reappears in the house after the stones have been torn out and the house is scraped and plastered, it is a destructive mildew and the house is unclean. It must be torn down – its stones, timbers and all the plaster – and taken out of town.

Leviticus 14:45

A house desecrated by mildew, mold, or fungus would be a defiled place to live in, so drastic measures had to be taken.

Leviticus 13:47-50

If any clothing is contaminated with mildew—any woolen or linen clothing, any woven or knitted material of linen or wool, any leather or anything made of leather—if the contamination in the clothing or leather, or woven or knitted material, or any leather article, is greenish or reddish, it is a spreading mildew and must be shown to the priest. The priest is to examine the mildew and isolate the affected article for seven days.

On behalf of the team at Mold B Gone, we want to wish you a Happy Easter weekend. As the passages cited in Leviticus demonstrate, mold has been an issue for many many years. We look forward to serving you! 🙂
