Instructions concerning a split in his cheek


If thou examinest a man having a split in his cheek, shouldst thou find that there is a swelling, protruding and red, on the outside of that split.


Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a split in his cheek , an ailment which I will treat."


Thou shouldst bind it with fresh meat the first day . His treatment is sitting until its swelling is reduced (lit. drawn out) . Thou shalt treat it afterward with grease , honey , (and) lint every day until he recovers .
