1:44 See thou say nothing to any man - But our blessed Lord gives no such charge to us. If he has made us clean from our leprosy of sin, we are not commanded to conceal it. On the contrary, it is our duty to publish it abroad, both for the honour of our Benefactor, and that others who are sick of sin may be encouraged to ask and hope for the same benefit. But go, show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing what Moses commanded for a testimony to them - The priests seeing him, pronouncing him clean, #Lev 13:17|,23,28,37, and accordingly allowing him to offer as Moses commanded, #Lev 14:2|,7, was such a proof against them, that they durst never say the leper was not cleansed; which out of envy or malice against our Saviour they might have been ready to say, upon his presenting himself to be viewed, according to the law, if by the cleansed person's talking much about his cure, the account of it had reached their ears before he came in person. This is one great reason why our Lord commanded this man to say nothing.
Mr 1:44 Show thyself to the priest. At Jerusalem. Those things which Moses commanded. See Le 14:4-7 and see PNT "Mt 8:4".

My understanding is that Jesus cured the man and asked him to say nothing about it, but to show himself to the priest. By not saying who had cured him it would have left people pondering on what had occurred. Also by remaining quiet he would have protected himself from harm. Sadly he didn't listen to the Lord. When the lord told him to do as Moses commanded,I believe he was asking the man to obey the commandments passed down to Moses, as a thank you for his being cured.
