Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 15:19


15:19 And if a woman - Heb. And a woman when she shall have an issue of blood, and her issue shalt be in her flesh, that is, in her secret parts, as flesh is taken, #Lev 15:2|. So it notes her monthly disease. Put apart - Not out of the camp, but from converse with her husband and others, and from access to the house of God. Seven days - For sometimes it continues so long; and it was decent to allow some time for purification after the ceasing of her issue. Whosoever toucheth her - Of grown persons. For the infant, to whom in that case she might give suck, was exempted from this pollution by the greater law of necessity, and by that antecedent law which required women to give suck to their own children.

    April: 2 Corinthians 6:14King James Version (KJV)

    14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

    Im sorry if it was obvious...but it wasn't to me,I ask questions so I can understand,not ASSume,I wasn't for sure on the marriage thing because,when one is with a non believer,it's hard to know if you should marry them,due to them not believing in the ways of GOD and now you are lying with them,in Deuteronomy they were to drive out the ones who did not live by the way of GOD,so Im worried :(......

    April: Sin upon sin. Getting married won't stop sin,it's a bad idea. Call on The Lord while He is near. Ask forgiveness. He will wash away your sins: Revelation1:5/He will Baptized with The Holy Ghost and Fire: Matthew 3:11/NEW LIFE 2Corinthians5:17 / A Believer should never marry a nonbeliever never! Time to Fast and Pray for "His"Will . Life here is short! A Moment of SIN= Eternal Fire:1John1:9

    April; Yes, it seems obvious enough, even in today's language, that it refers to a woman on her period: and she should be kept apart and quiet. As far as fornicating; who cares if they've been together already for a long time? it is sin; and yes they need to repent of that rebellion and uncleanness! Should they get married? Why wouldn't they? Isn't that the honorable and mature thing to do?
  • April
    Hello, I am trying to see if I understand, it seems like it's talking of a women on her CYCLE and everything or anything it gets on, as well as lying with a man while on it, and possibly fornicating period?. Now adays do we repent, say because two are not married but have been together a long time?, because it's not through marriage?. The flower part, is that with or without the cycle?.

    I hope that I have know what this means: that a man or a woman who has not come together under gods rules and live together is unclean. also he or she doing as one washing an bathing is also unclean.
