Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 22:2


22:2 Separate themselves - When any uncleanness is upon them, as appears from #Lev 22:3|,4. From the holy things - From eating of those parts of the offerings, which belong to them. Only of the tithes they might eat. They - The children of Israel. And it ill became the priests to profane or pollute what the people did hallow.
