On the completion of her period of purification, for either son or daughter, she shall bring to the priest, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, a lamb in its first year for a burnt offering, and a pigeon or a turtledove for a sin offering.
The status of a Metzora is similar to that of a mourner. He must tear his clothing, he may not have his hair cut, and he must cover his head.
The Metzora’s head is wrapped and his lips are covered. He dresses like a mourner.
Some explain that the word "parua" does not mean that he can’t cut his hair, but rather, that he must cover his head.
