Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 21:9


21:9 And the daughter - And by analogy his son also, and his wife, because the reason of the law here added, concerns all. And nothing is more common than to name one kind for the rest of the same nature, as also is done #Lev 18:6|. She profaneth her father - Exposeth his person and office, and consequently religion, to contempt.

  • A disciple
    How many of His little ones have been caused to sin by those who should have been trustworthy examples and protectors! Jesus has pity and is well able to recover His sheep that have been driven out and scattered in the dark mountains! But as for those who caused them to be driven out; "It were better for him if a millstone were tied around his neck and he were thrown into the depths of the sea.."

    "Work in progress", I think that the Bible is clear that sins that are accidental will be forgiven but sins that you plan to do and will not repent from deserves death.

    30 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
    - Numbers 15:30 KJV

    If you once were saved and were abused and broke Gods laws is that an automatic death sentance even if you rededicate and go back to him where you belong?
