John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible
Leviticus 15

 

 

Verses 1-33


Uncleanness connected with Sexual Discharges

The subject of this chapter is related to that of Leviticus 12 : see intro. there. Here three natural (Leviticus 15:16-17, Leviticus 15:18, Leviticus 15:19-24) and two abnormal (Leviticus 15:1-15, Leviticus 15:25-30) conditions are dealt with. Though not in themselves sinful, they render the person ceremonially unclean, and the enactments with respect to them would tend to purity of morals, being a reminder that all uncleanness is hateful to God, and that He is to be glorified in our bodies as well as in our spirits.

8. This case is provided for, as spitting upon a person was, and still is, a common expression of contempt among Orientals.

12. See on Leviticus 11:33.

13. Is cleansed] i.e. physically. Shall be clean] i.e. ceremonially.
