EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Numbers 8:7. Leviticus 15:13-15 Numbers 19:11, &c. Numbers 8:7,
and they washed their clothes; that they might have no defilement about them, neither in their bodies, nor in their garments:
and Aaron offered them as an offering before the Lord; a wave offering, as in Numbers 8:11,
and Aaron made an atonement for them to cleanse them; by offering the sacrifices for them, Numbers 8:12.And the Levites were purified, and they washed their clothes; and Aaron offered them as an offering before the LORD; and Aaron made an atonement for them to cleanse them.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)21. purified themselves from sin] lit. ‘unsinned themselves.’ See on Numbers 31:19.Verse 21. - Were purified, or "purified themselves." It refers not to the ceremonial sprinkling, but to the personal preparation prescribed. Numbers 8:13-19. The meaning of Numbers 8:13. is this: According to the command already given (in Numbers 8:6-12), thou shalt place the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and wave them as a wave-offering before the Lord, and so separate them from the midst of the children of Israel, that they may be Mine. They shall then come to serve the tabernacle. So shalt thou cleanse them and wave them. The same reason is assigned for this in Numbers 8:16, Numbers 8:17, as in Numbers 3:11-13 (כּל בּכור for כּל־בּכור, cf. Numbers 3:13); and in Numbers 8:18 and Numbers 8:19, what was commanded in Numbers 3:6-9 is described as having been carried out. On Numbers 8:19 see Numbers 1:53.
