(32, 33) This is the law.—These two verses give a summary of the contents of the chapter. In the recapitulation, however, as we have already seen, the order of the enactments is not strictly adhered to.

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.This solemn admonition is addressed to Moses and Aaron, see Leviticus 15:1.

Leviticus 15:31

My tabernacle - Strictly, "my dwelling-place" משׁכן mı̂shkān, as in Leviticus 8:10; Leviticus 17:4; Leviticus 26:11. The word rendered "tabernacle" elsewhere in Leviticus is properly "tent." See the Exodus 26:1 note.

31-33. Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness—The divine wisdom was manifested in inspiring the Israelites with a profound reverence for holy things; and nothing was more suited to this purpose than to debar from the tabernacle all who were polluted by any kind of uncleanness, ceremonial as well as natural, mental as well as physical. The better to mark out that people as His family, His servants and priests, dwelling in the camp as in a holy place, consecrated by His presence and His tabernacle, He required of them complete purity, and did not allow them to come before Him when defiled, even by involuntary or secret impurities, as a want of respect due to His majesty. And when we bear in mind that God was training a people to live in His presence in some measure as priests devoted to His service, we shall not consider these rules for the maintenance of personal purity either too stringent or too minute (1Th 4:4). No text from Poole on this verse.

This is the law of him that hath an issue,.... In Leviticus 15:32 is a recapitulation of the several laws in this chapter, as of a man that has a "gonorrhoea":

and of him whose seed goeth from him, and is defiled therewith; involuntarily, that suffers a nocturnal pollution.

This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose seed goeth from him, and is defiled therewith;
32, 33. The concluding vv. include all the cases mentioned in this chapter. Cp. the conclusion to ch. 11.

The gradations in the methods of cleansing should be noted: (a) the uncleanness lasted till the end of the day, and ceased without any further ceremonial, ‘he shall be unclean until the even’; (b) washing the clothes and bathing in running water is added (Leviticus 15:13); (c) sacrifices must also be offered, for the leper, a woman in childbirth (ch. 12) and two cases in ch. 15 (Leviticus 15:15; Leviticus 15:30).

Leviticus 15:32Concluding formula. The words, "him that lieth with her that is unclean," are more general than the expression, "lie with her," in Leviticus 15:24, and involve not only intercourse with an unclean woman, but lying by her side upon one and the same bed.
