But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify himself, that soul shall be cut off from among the congregation, because he has defiled the sanctuary of the LORD: the water of separation has not been sprinkled on him; he is unclean.

EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Numbers 19:20-21. That shall not purify himself — Shall contemptuously refuse to submit to this way of purification. Shall wash his clothes — Because he is unclean. It is strange, that the same water should cleanse one person, and defile another. But God would have it so, to teach us that it did not cleanse by any virtue in itself, or in the work done, but only by virtue of God’s appointment; and to show that the efficacy of God’s ordinances doth not depend upon the person or quality of his ministers, because the same person who was polluted himself could and did, in the use of God’s appointed means, cleanse others. He that toucheth the water — Either by sprinkling of it, or by being sprinkled with it; for even he that was cleansed by it was not fully cleansed as soon as he was sprinkled, but only at the even of that day.Shall not purify himself, i.e, shall contemptuously refuse to submit to this way of purification.
and shall not purify himself; with the water of purification:
that soul shall be cut off from among the congregation: See Gill on Numbers 19:13.
because he hath defiled the sanctuary of the Lord: by going into it in his uncleanness:
the water of separation hath not been sprinkled upon him, he is unclean; and will remain so, for nothing else could purify him, see Numbers 19:13.But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify himself, that soul shall be cut off from among the congregation, because he hath defiled the sanctuary of the LORD: the water of separation hath not been sprinkled upon him; he is unclean.
