22:2 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they a separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane not my holy name [in those things] which they hallow unto me: I [am] the LORD.

    (a) Meaning, that the priests abstain from eating, as long as they are polluted.
22:3 Say unto them, Whosoever [he be] of all your seed among your generations, that b goeth unto the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I [am] the LORD.
    (b) To eat of it.
22:4 What man soever of the seed of Aaron [is] a leper, or hath a running issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean. And whoso toucheth any thing [that is] c unclean [by] the dead, or a man whose seed goeth from him;
    (c) By touching any dead thing, or being at burial of the dead.
22:10 There shall no d stranger eat [of] the holy thing: a e sojourner of the priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat [of] the holy thing.
    (d) Which is not of the tribe of Levi.
    (e) Some read, the servant who had his ear bored, and would not go free, (Ex 21:6).
22:12 If the priest's daughter also be [married] unto a f stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.
    (f) Who is not of the priests kindred.
22:14 And if a man eat [of] the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put the g fifth [part] thereof unto it, and shall give [it] unto the priest with the holy thing.
    (g) He shall give that and a fifth part over.

22:16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of h trespass, when they eat their holy things: for I the LORD do sanctify them.

    (h) For if they did not offer sacrifice for their error, the people by their example might commit the same offence.
22:25 Neither i from a stranger's hand shall ye offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruption [is] in them, [and] blemishes [be] in them: they shall not be accepted for you.
    (i) You shall not receive any imperfect thing from a stranger, to make it the Lord's offering: which he calls the bread of the Lord.
22:32 Neither shall ye k profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I [am] the LORD which hallow you,
    (k) For whoever does otherwise than God commands pollutes his Name.
