15:1-33 Laws concerning ceremonial uncleanness. - We need not be curious in explaining these laws; but have reason to be thankful that we need fear no defilement, except that of sin, nor need ceremonial and burdensome purifications. These laws remind us that God sees all things, even those which escape the notice of men. The great gospel duties of faith and repentance are here signified, and the great gospel privileges of the application of Christ's blood to our souls for our justification, and his grace for our sanctification.Every garment - Compare Jde 1:23. Le 15:19-33. Uncleanness of Women.

No text from Poole on this verse. And everything that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean,....

everything also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean; chair, stool, &c. as is the case of a man, Leviticus 15:4.

And every thing that she lieth upon in {g} her separation shall be unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.

(g) That is, when she has her period, by which she is separate from her husband, from the tabernacle and from touching any holy thing.

When he was cleansed, i.e., recovered from his issue, he was to wait seven days with regard to his purification, and then wash his clothes and bathe his body in fresh water, and be clean. On the eighth day he was to bring two turtle-doves or young pigeons, in order that the priest might prepare one as a sin-offering and the other as a burnt-offering, and make an atonement for him before the Lord for his issue.
