Leviticus 22

Gaebelein's Annotated BibleGaebelein's Annotated

Verses 1-33


1. Care to be exercised in holy things (Leviticus 22:1-16 )

2. Care in the enforcement of the law of offerings (Leviticus 22:17-33 )

Uncleanness such as mentioned in the first part of the chapter prohibited the partaking of holy things. Strangers who did not belong to the priestly house and even the married daughter of the priest, not living in the priestly household, were not permitted to eat of the offering of the holy things. Holy things have to be used in a reverent and holy way. The same principle holds good in the New Testament. We may well think here of the Lord’s table. Read 1 Corinthians 11:23-31 . Coming to the Lord’s table to remember Him requires self-judgment.

The instruction concerning sacrifices, their unblemished character and what constitutes an acceptable offering are all of great interest with many spiritual lessons. But space forbids our enlarging upon them.
