Heb. remainder of his flesh. Not withstanding the prohibitions here, it must be evident, that in the infancy of the world, persons very near of kin, and even brothers and sisters, must have joined in matrimonial alliances; and therefore we cannot pronounce them immoral in themselves. But, in these first instances, necessity required it; but when this necessity no longer existed, the thing became inexpedient and improper: for 1. As human nature now is, it is very expedient that those who are so much together in youth, should, by such a restriction be taught to look upon all such intercourse as prohibited and incestuous; for unless such restrictions are made, it would be impossible to prevent the prevalence of very early corruption among young persons. (See Michaelis on the laws of Moses, Art. 108.) 2. That the duties owing by nature to relatives might not be confounded with those of a social or political kind; for could a man be a brother and a husband, or a son and a husband at the same time, and fulfil the duties of both? Impossible. 3. That by intermarrying with other families, relationship and its endearments might be diffused. These prohibitions are, therefore, to be considered so eminently moral obligations as to be observed by all mankind. - to uncover. * :7-19; 20:11,12,17-21 VERSE 7 * Le 20:11 Eze 22:10 VERSE 8 * Le 20:11 Ge 35:22; 49:4 De 22:30; 27:20 2Sa 16:21,22 Eze 22:10 * Am 2:7 1Co 5:1 VERSE 9 * Le 20:17 De 27:22 2Sa 13:11-14 Eze 22:11 VERSE 10 VERSE 11 - thy sister. * 2Sa 13:12 Eze 22:11 VERSE 12 * Le 20:19 Ex 6:20 VERSE 13 * :13 VERSE 14 * Le 20:20 VERSE 15 * Le 20:12 Ge 38:18,19,26 Eze 22:11 VERSE 16 * Le 20:21 De 25:5 Mt 14:3,4; 22:24 Mr 6:17; 12:19 Lu 3:19 VERSE 17 - a woman. * Le 20:14 De 27:23 Am 2:7 - it is wickedness. * Le 20:14 VERSE 18 - wife. or, one wife to another. * Ge 4:19; 29:28 Ex 26:3 - to vex her. * Ge 30:15 1Sa 1:6-8 Mal 2:15 VERSE 19 * Le 15:19,24; 20:18 Eze 18:6; 22:10 VERSE 20 * Le 20:10 Ex 20:14 De 5:18; 22:22,25 2Sa 11:3,4,27 Pr 6:25,29-33 * Mal 3:5 Mt 5:27,28 Ro 2:22 1Co 6:9 Ga 5:19 Heb 13:4 VERSE 21 - pass through. Molech signifies a king, or governor, of similar import with Bal, lord, or governor; and it is generally supposed that the sun was worshipped under this name; and more particularly as the fire appears to have been so much employed in his worship. It seems clear that children were not only consecrated to him by passing through the fire, which appears to be alluded to here, but that they were actually made a burnt offering to him. (See the parallel passages.) That the several abominations afterwards mentioned were actually practised by many heathen nations is abundantly attested by their own writers. * Le 20:2 De 12:31; 18:10 2Ki 16:3; 21:6; 23:10 Ps 106:37,38 Jer 7:31 * Jer 19:5 Eze 20:31; 23:37 - to Molech. * 1Ki 11:7,33 Am 5:26 Ac 7:43 - Moloch. - profane. * Le 19:12; 20:2-5; 21:6; 22:2,32 Eze 36:20-23 Mal 1:12 Ro 1:23; 2:24 VERSE 22 * Le 20:13 Ge 19:5 Jud 19:22 1Ki 14:24 Ro 1:26,27 1Co 6:9 1Ti 1:10 * Jude 1:7 VERSE 23 - any beast. * Le 20:15,16 Ex 22:19 - confusion. * Le 20:12 VERSE 24 - Defile. * :6-23,30 Jer 44:4 Mt 15:18-20 Mr 7:10-23 1Co 3:17 - for. * Le 20:22,23 De 12:31; 18:12 VERSE 25 - the land. * Nu 35:33,34 Ps 106:38 Isa 24:5 Jer 2:7; 16:18 Eze 36:17,18 * Ro 8:22 - therefore. * Ps 89:32 Isa 26:21 Jer 5:9,29; 9:9; 14:10; 23:2 Ho 2:13; 8:13; 9:9 - vomiteth. * :28; 20:22 VERSE 26 - keep. * :5,30 De 4:1,2,40; 12:32 Ps 105:44,45 Lu 8:15; 11:28 * Joh 14:15,21-23; 15:14 - nor any stranger. * Le 17:8,10 VERSE 27 * :24 De 20:18; 23:18; 25:16; 27:15 1Ki 14:24 2Ki 16:3; 21:2 * 2Ch 36:14 Eze 16:50; 22:11 Ho 9:10 VERSE 28 * :25; 20:22 Jer 9:19 Eze 36:13,17 Ro 8:22 Re 3:16 VERSE 29 * Le 17:10; 20:6 - See on * Ex 12:15 VERSE 30 - abominable. * :3,26,27; 20:23 De 18:9-12 - that ye defile. * :24 - I am.
