9:13 Able men - Heb. mighty men of valour: which is here noted asan excellent qualification for their place; because the priests might meetwith great opposition in the discharge of their office, in the executionof the censures upon all impure persons without exception, and in preservingsacred things from violation by the touch of forbidden hands.
