    1 Of the priests' mourning. 6 Of their holiness. 7 Of their marriages. 8 Of their estimation. 9 Of the priest's daughter convicted of whoredom. 10 Of the high priest's holiness. 13 Of his marriage. 16 The priests that have blemishes must not minister in the sanctuary. VERSE 1 - Speak. * Ho 5:1 Mal 2:1,4 - There. * :11; 10:6,7 Nu 19:14,16 Eze 44:25 VERSE 2 * Le 18:6 1Th 4:13 VERSE 3 VERSE 4 - or, the verse may be read, being an husband among his people, he shall not defile himself for his wife, etc. * Eze 24:16,17 VERSE 5 - not make baldness. This custom is also called rounding the corners of the head, (ch. 27 19:27,) and seems to have been performed in honor of some idol. * Le 10:6; 19:27,28 De 14:1 Isa 15:2; 22:12 Jer 16:6; 48:37 Eze 44:20 * Am 8:10 Mic 1:16 - the corner. The Hebrew {peath zakon}, may denote the whiskers; as the Syriac {phatho} signifies. These are by the Arabs, according to Niebuhr, still cut entirely off, or worn quite short; and hence they are called by Jeremiah, [ ,] those with cropped whiskers. Perhaps some superstition, of which we are ignorant, was connected with this; but whether or not, it was the object of Moses to keep the Israelites distinct from other nations. VERSE 6 - holy. * :8; 10:3 Ex 28:36; 29:44 Ezr 8:28 1Pe 2:9 - profane. * Le 18:21; 19:12 Mal 1:6,11,12 - bread. * Le 3:11 Eze 44:7 Mal 1:7 - therefore. * Isa 52:11 VERSE 7 - that is a whore. * :8 Eze 44:22 1Ti 3:11 - put away. * De 24:1-4 Isa 50:1 VERSE 8 - sanctify. * :6 Ex 19:10,14; 28:41; 29:1,43,44 - for I. * Le 11:44,45; 19:2; 20:7,8 Joh 10:36; 17:19 Heb 7:26; 10:29 VERSE 9 - the daughter. * 1Sa 2:17,34; 3:13,14 Eze 9:6 Mal 2:3 Mt 11:20-24 1Ti 3:4,5 * Tit 1:6 - she shall be burnt. * Le 20:14 Ge 38:24 Jos 7:15,25 Isa 33:14 VERSE 10 - upon. * Le 8:12; 10:7; 16:32 Ex 29:29,30 Nu 35:25 Ps 133:2 - consecrated. * Le 8:7-9 Ex 28:2-4 - uncover. * Le 10:6,7; 13:45 2Sa 15:30 Es 6:12 - not rend. * Ge 37:34 Job 1:20 Mt 26:65 All human corpses were considered as unclean. Whoever touched one was unclean for seven days, and was obliged on the third and seventh day to purify himself according to the Mosaic instructions. In the case of the priest it went still farther; insomuch, that even mourning for the dead by any external sign, such as tearing their clothes, defiled them. Hence such mournings were absolutely forbidden to be used in any case, and by the other priests also, except in the case of their very nearest relations, for whom they were allowed to mourn. This statue is founded on the importance of sustaining the decency and purity of Divine worship. The servants of the Deity were to keep themselves at a distance from every thing that in the least degree savored of uncleanness. VERSE 11 - his father. * :1,2 Nu 6:7; 19:14 De 33:9 Mt 8:21,22; 12:46-50 Lu 9:59,60 * Lu 14:26 2Co 5:16 VERSE 12 - go out. * Le 10:7 - for the crown. * Le 8:9-12,30 Ex 28:36; 29:6,7 Isa 61:1 Ac 10:38 VERSE 13 * :7 Eze 44:22 2Co 11:2 Re 14:4 VERSE 14 - take a virgin. * So 6:9 2Co 11:2 Eph 5:27 - \\S#01330h\\. * Ge 24:16 VERSE 15 - profane. * Ge 18:19 Ezr 2:62; 9:2 Ne 13:23-29 Mal 2:11,15 Ro 11:16 * 1Co 7:14 - for I the. * :8 VERSE 16 VERSE 17 - blemish. * Le 22:20-25 1Th 2:10 1Ti 3:2 Heb 7:26 - let him. * :21; 10:3 Nu 16:5 Ps 65:4 - bread. or, food. * Le 3:11,16 VERSE 18 - a blind man. * Isa 56:10 Mt 23:16,17,19 1Ti 3:2,3,7 Tit 1:7,10 - superfluous. * Le 22:23 VERSE 19 VERSE 20 - a dwarf. or, too slender. or hath. * De 23:1 VERSE 21 - a blemish.
