19:2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be a holy: for I the LORD your God [am] holy.

    (a) That is, void of all pollution, idolatry and superstition both of soul and body.
19:5 And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, ye shall offer it b at your own will.
    (b) Of your own accord.
19:7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it [is] abominable; it shall not be c accepted.
    (c) To wit, of God.
19:11 Ye shall not steal, neither d deal falsely, neither lie one to another.
    (d) In that which is committed to your credit.
19:16 Thou shalt not e go up and down [as] a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou f stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I [am] the LORD.
    (e) As a slanderer, backbiter, or quarrel picker.
    (f) By consenting to his death, or conspiring with the wicked.
19:19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a g diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.
    (g) As a horse to leap an ass, or a mule a mare.

19:23 And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye h shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of.

    (h) It shall be unclean as that thing, which is not circumcised.
19:26 Ye shall not eat [any thing] with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor i observe times.
    (i) To measure lucky or unlucky days.
19:27 Ye shall not k round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.
    (k) As did the Gentiles in sign of mourning.
19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any l marks upon you: I [am] the LORD.
    (l) By whipping your bodies or burning marks in them.
19:29 Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a m whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.
    (m) As did the Cyprians, and Locrenses.
19:32 Thou shalt n rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I [am] the LORD.
    (n) In token of reverence.
19:35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in o meteyard, in weight, or in measure.
    (o) As in measuring the ground.
19:36 Just balances, just weights, a just p ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I [am] the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.
    (p) By these two measures he means all other. Of Ephah, read (Ex 16:36) and of Hin, (Ex 29:40).
