Leviticus 11

Morgan's Exposition on the Whole BibleMorgan's Exposition

Verses 1-47

We now reach the section dealing with the laws of separation. The first movement records the laws concerning health. It is impossible to enter here into any detailed dealing with the particular laws concerning sustenance. It may at least be affirmed that these requirements were based on the soundest laws of health. God, who perfectly understands the physical structure of man, knows what is good and what is harmful. There can be very little doubt that a careful examination of these provisions will demonstrate the sanitary wisdom of them all. It is at least remarkable that the general principles revealed in these laws have been accepted by all civilized peoples, although of course in many of their details they are disregarded.
