Ch. 12, v. 3: "Uva'yom hashmini yimol" - At a circumcision we say, "K'sheim shenichnas livris kein yiko'neis l'Torah ulchupoh ulmaasim tovim." Just as the father was totally involved in bringing him into the covenant of Avrohom , "bris miloh," so too, his father should be involved in his child's development when he is to receive his education, hen he needs guidance in pursuit of marriage, and how to properly perform mitzvos. (Adaptaton of Tochachas Chaim)

Ch. 12, v. 8: "V'im lo simtzoh yodoh dei seh" - The Torah does not want to be demanding of a poor woman when bringing her offerings. Even though she has the ability to take on extra work and pay for the same offering as the wealthy woman, it is better for her to not strain herself as

she is weak from childbirth and her time is very taken up with her newborn child. (Moshav Z'keinim)

Ch. 13, v. 4: "V'hisgir haKohein es hanega" - The Torah says "the affliction" and not the "afflicted." This teaches us that the Kohein should only judge the situation and not take into account the afflicted person, be he a friend or an enemy. (Tiferes Ovos)

Ch. 13, v. 12,13: "V'im poro'ach tifrach hatzoraas,V'tihar es hanoga" - Even though the affliction has blossomed, because it is blatantly visible on the outside there is no fear that the person will delude himself or others into thinking that he is spiritually in order. We can therefore call him pure. (Kiflayim L'soshioh)
