Instructions concerning a wound above his eyebrow.
If thou examinest a man having a wound above his eyebrow ,
penetrating to the bone, shouldst palpate his wound , (and) draw
together for him the gash with stitching .
Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a wound above his eyebrow .
An aliment which I will treat."
Now after thou hast stitched it , thou shouldst bind fresh meat upon
it the first day . If thou findest that the stitching of this wound
is loose , thou shouldst draw (it) together for him with
two strips (of plaster)1 ,
and thou shouldst treat it with grease and
honey every day until he recovers .
"Two strips of linen," it means two bands of linen, which one
applies to two lips of the gaping wound , in order to cause
one (lip) be joined to the other .
