Instructions concerning a wound in his nostril
If thou examinest a man having a wound in his nostril piercing
shouldst thou find the two lips of that wound separated
from each other , thou shouldst draw together that wound
with stitching .
Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a wound in his nostril,
piercing through. An ailment which I will treat."
Thou shouldst make for him two swabs of linen, (and) thou shouldst
clean out every worm of blood which has coagulated on the inside of
his nostril. Thou shouldst bind (it) with fresh meat, the first day.
when its stitching loosens, thou shouldst take off of him the fresh
meat. (and) thou shouldst bind it with grease, honey (and) lint every
day until he recovers.
"A wound in his nostril, through," means, that the two lips of his
wound are soft, opening on the inside of his nose, as one says:
"pierced through" concerning soft things.
