Instructions concerning a split in his temple
If thou examinest a man having a split in his temple, shouldst thou
find a swelling protruding on the outside of that split, while he
discharges blood from his nostril and from his one ear having that split,
(and) it is painful when he hears speech, because of it .
Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a split in his temple ,
while he discharges blood from his nostril and his ear having that
injury . An ailment with which I will contend."
Thou shouldst put him at his mooring stakes until thou knowest he has
reached a decisive point .
