Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO LEVITICUS 21\\

This chapter respects the priests, the sons of Aaron, and forbids their
mourning for the dead, unless in some cases, \\#Le 21:1-6\\; or their
marriage with an whore or a divorced woman, \\#Le 21:7,8\\; and the
daughters of any of them to commit fornication, which is made
punishable with death, \\#Le 21:9\\; and it contains particular laws for
the high priest to observe, who was not to mourn for any, even for his
parents, \\#Le 21:10,11\\; nor to go out of the sanctuary, \\#Le 21:12\\;
nor to marry any woman but a virgin, \\#Le 21:13-15\\; and it also directs,
that none of the priests having any blemish in them should be employed
in divine service, though they might eat of the holy things,
\\#Le 21:16-24\\.
