SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:1 Â¶ Y habló el SEÑOR a Moisés y a Aarón, diciendo:
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron , etc.] Aaron is addressed again, though left out in the preceding law, because the laws concerning leprosy chiefly concerned the priests, whose business it was to judge of it, and cleanse from it; and so Ben Gersom observes, mention is made of Aaron here, because to him and his sons belonged the affair of leprosies, to pronounce unclean or clean, to shut up or set free, and, as Aben Ezra says, according to his determination were all the plagues or strokes of a man, who should be declared clean or unclean: saying ; as follows.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-17 - The plague of leprosy was an uncleanness, rather than a disease. Chris is said to cleanse lepers, not to cure them. Common as the leprosy wa among the Hebrews, during and after their residence in Egypt, we have no reason to believe that it was known among them before. Their distressed state and employment in that land must have rendered the liable to disease. But it was a plague often inflicted immediately by the hand of God. Miriam's leprosy, and Gehazi's, and king Uzziah's were punishments of particular sins; no marvel there was care taken to distinguish it from a common distemper. The judgment of it was referre to the priests. And it was a figure of the moral pollutions of men' minds by sin, which is the leprosy of the soul, defiling to the conscience, and from which Christ alone can cleanse. The priest coul only convict the leper, (by the law is the knowledge of sin,) but Christ can cure the sinner, he can take away sin. It is a work of grea importance, but of great difficulty, to judge of our spiritual state We all have cause to suspect ourselves, being conscious of sores an spots; but whether clean or unclean is the question. As there wer certain marks by which to know it was leprosy, so there are marks of such as are in the gall of bitterness. The priest must take time i making his judgment. This teaches all, both ministers and people, no to be hasty in censures, nor to judge anything before the time. If some men's sins go before unto judgment, the sins of others follow after and so do men's good works. If the person suspected were found to be clean, yet he must wash his clothes, because there had been ground for the suspicion. We have need to be washed in the blood of Christ from our spots, though not leprosy spots; for who can say, I am pure from sin?
