- We need not be curious in explaining these laws; but have
reason to be thankful that we need fear no defilement, except
that of sin, nor need ceremonial and burdensome purifications.
These laws remind us that God sees all things, even those which
escape the notice of men. The great gospel duties of faith and
repentance are here signified, and the great gospel privileges
of the application of Christ's blood to our souls for our
justification, and his grace for our sanctification.
