Bible Commentary for Leviticus 11:7

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 11:7


11:5 As for the names of the following creatures, seeing the Jews themselves are uncertain and divided about them, it seems improper to trouble the unlearned readers with disputes about them.

11:8 Ye shall not touch - Not in order to eating, as may be gathered by comparing this with #Gen 3:3|. But since the fat and skins of some of the forbidden creatures were useful, for medicinal and other good purposes, and were used by good men, it is not probable that God would have them cast away. Thus God forbad the making of images, #Exo 20:4|, not universally, but in order to the worshipping them, as Christian interpreters agree.

11:9 Fins and scales - Both of them; such fishes being more cleanly, and more wholesome food than others. The names of them are not particularly mentioned, partly because most of them wanted names, the fish not being brought to Adam and named by him as other creatures were; and partly because the land of Canaan had not many rivers, nor great store of fish.
