CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
His clothes shall be rent, etc. - The leprous person is required to be as one that mourned for the dead, or for some great and public calamity.

He was also to cry, Unclean, unclean, in order to prevent any person from coming near him, lest the contagion might be thus communicated and diffused through society; and hence the Targumist render it, Be not ye made unclean! Be not ye made unclean! A caution to others not to come near him.

2 Kings 7:3
Now there were four men with leprosy at the entrance of the city gate. They said to each other, "Why stay here until we die?
"Go away! You are unclean!" people cry to them. "Away! Away! Don't touch us!" When they flee and wander about, people among the nations say, "They can stay here no longer."
