Bible Commentary for Leviticus 20:5

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 20:5


20:3 I will set my face against that man - Deal with him as an enemy, and make him a monument of my justice. To defile my sanctuary - Because the sanctuary was defiled by gross abominations committed in that city or land where God's sanctuary was: or because by these actions they declared to all men that they esteemed the sanctuary and service of God abominable and vile, by preferring such odious idolatry before it. And to profane my name - Partly by despising it themselves, partly by disgracing it to others, and giving them occasion to blaspheme it, and to abhor the true religion.

20:4 Hide their eyes - Wink at his fault, and forbear to accuse and punish him.

20:6 To go a whoring - To seek counsel or help from them.
