Leviticus 12:3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

On the eighth day, the flesh of the boy’s foreskin shall be circumcised,[a]


  1. 12:3 Circumcision is the sign of the covenant between God and Israel (Gn 17:1–27) and allows full participation in the religious community (Ex 12:43–49; Jos 5:2–10). This command was fulfilled after Jesus’ birth (Lk 2:21).
