Bible Commentary for Leviticus 12:2

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 12:2


12:2 Seven days - Not for any filthiness which was either in the conception, or in bringing forth, but to signify the universal and deep pollution of man's nature, even from the birth, and from the conception. Seven days or thereabouts, nature is employed in the purgation of most women. Her infirmity - Her monthly infirmity. And it may note an agreement therewith not only in the time, #Lev 15:19|, but in the degree of uncleanness.
