(11) And the priest shall offer . . . --The word which is here rendered "offer" (asah), like the Greek poiein, means literally "do." Its sacrificial signification, however, in this place, is entirely dependent upon the context.

By the dead.--i.e., by reason of, or on account of the dead body with which he had been brought in contact.

Verse 11. - For that he sinned by the dead. This is one of the cases in which the law seemed to teach plainly that an outward, accidental, and involuntary defilement was sin, and had need to be atoned for. The opposite principle was declared by our Lord (Mark 7:18-93). The Septuagint has here the strange reading περὶ ω΅ν ἥμαρτε περὶ τῆς ψυχῆς. Shall hallow his head. By dedicating again to God the free growth of his hair.
