What if the Nega has retained its appearance or has spread at the end of the second week?

1.

Rashi and Ramban #1: If the Nega has retained its appearance or has spread at the end of the second week, the Kohen declares the Metzora Tamei. 1

2.

Ramban #2 (citing Nega'im, 1:3 and Rashi in Megilah, 8b): As long as the Nega did not spread, it is Tahor. 2


1

As implied by the words of the Pasuk.

2

Even it went from white ke'Sid ha'Heichal to white like snow. And the reason the Torah writes "Keihah" and not 'Amad be'Einav' is to teach us that even if the Nega became dimmer, if it has spread, it is Tamei (Ramban).

2)

Seeing as the Kohen declares him Tahor, why does he need to Tovel his clothes?

1.

Rashi: Since he needed to be locked up, he is considered Tamei and requires Tevilah (he and his clothes).
