Bible Commentary for Leviticus 7:22

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 7:22


7:20 That eateth - Knowingly; for if it were done ignorantly, a sacrifice was accepted for it. Not being cleansed from his uncleanness according to the appointment, #Lev 11:24|, &c. This verse speaks of uncleanness from an internal cause, as by an issue, &c. for what was from an external cause is spoken of in the next verse.

7:21 Of man - Or, of women, for the word signifies both.

7:23 The general prohibition of eating fat, #Lev 3:17|, is here explained of those kind of creatures which were sacrificed. The fat of others they might eat.

7:24 He speaks still of the same kinds of beasts, and shews that this prohibition reaches not only to the fat of those beasts which were offered to God, but also of those that died, or were killed at home. And if this seems a superfluous prohibition, since the lean as well as the fat of such beasts were forbidden, #Lev 22:8|, it must be noted, that prohibition reached only to the priests, #Lev 7:4|.
