"On the eighth day, he shall take two unblemished male lambs and one female ewe"Leviticus 14:10.

A metzora [one who suffers from the biblical disease known as tzara'at] must, after the disorder has been cured, bring an offering: Three animals – one as a Burnt Offering, one as a Sin Offering, and one as a Guilt Offering – and a log of oil. If his financial means do not allow for this, he can instead bring one lamb as a guilt offering and two pigeons or two turtledoves, one as a Burnt Offering and one as a Sin Offering.

Until he brings this offering, his purification process is not complete and he may not partake of sacrificial flesh.
