17:2 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them; This [is] the thing which the LORD hath a commanded, saying,

    (a) Lest they should practice the idolatry they had learned among the Egyptians.
17:3 What man soever [there be] of the house of Israel, that b killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth [it] out of the camp,
    (b) To make a sacrifice of offering of it.
17:4 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering unto the LORD before the tabernacle of the LORD; c blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people:
    (c) I abhor it as much as if he had killed a man as in (Is 66:3).
17:5 To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they offer in the d open field, even that they may bring them unto the LORD, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest, and offer them [for] peace offerings unto the LORD.
    (d) In that they were moved with foolish devotion to offer it.
17:7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto e devils, after whom they have gone a f whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations.
    (e) Meaning, whatever is not the true God, (1Co 10:10, Ps 95:5).
    (f) For idolatry is spiritual whoredom, because faith toward God is broken.
17:10 And whatsoever man [there be] of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set g my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
    (g) I will declare my wrath by taking vengeance on him as in (Le 20:3).

17:13 And whatsoever man [there be] of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be h eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.

    (h) Which the law permits to be eaten, because it is clean.
