Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts
The Jews say nothing is forbidden under the name of sorts but what is spun and wove, as it is said, "thou shalt not wear sheatnez", a thing that is carded, spun, and wove F12; which Ainsworth translates "linsie woolsie", and is explained by what follows: as "of woollen and linen together"; of which (See Gill on Leviticus 19:19), whereas Josephus F13 observes, this was granted to the priests only to wear such garments. Bochart F14 affirms it to be false; but that great man is mistaken; the blue, purple, and scarlet, in the priests' garments, were no other than dyed wool; and it is a sentiment in general received by the Jews, that the priests wore no other but woollen and linen in their service; see the note on the above place; otherwise this law is so strictly observed, as not, to sew a woollen garment with linen thread, and so on the contrary F15.
