flesh, the injury being in the lower part of his ear, (and) confined
to the flesh , thou shouldst draw (it) together for him with stitching
behind the hollow of his ear .
Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a wound in his ear,
cutting through its flesh. An ailment which I will treat."
If thou findest , the stitching of that wound loosen (and) stick
in the two lips of his wound, thou shouldst make for him stiff rolls of
linen (and) pad the back of his ear therewith . Thou shouldst treat
it afterwards with grease, honey ,(and) lint every day until he recovers .
