Instructions concerning a break in his collar-bone


If thou examinest a man having a break in his collar-bone (and) thou shouldst find his collar-bone short and separated from its fellow .


Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a break in his collar-bone. An ailment which I will treat."


Thou shouldst place him prostrate on back , with something folded between his two shoulder-blades ; thou shouldst spread out with his two shoulders in order to stretch apart his collar-bone until that break falls into its place . Thou shouldst make for him two splints of linen, (and) thou shouldst apply one of them both on the inside of his upper arm. Thou shouldst bind it with ymrw , (and) treat it afterward with honey every day, until he recovers .
