Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 11:47


11:45 That bringeth you up out of Egypt - This was a reason why they should chearfully submit to distinguishing laws, who had been so honoured with distinguishing favours.

11:46 This is the law - It was so, as long the Mosaic dispensation lasted. But under the gospel we find it expressly repealed by a voice from heaven, #Acts 10:15|. Let us therefore bless God, that to us every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused.
