Leviticus 27:34 (King James Version)
These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
- 26:46 Deuteronomy 4:45 ; John 1:17
- in mount
- Numbers 1:1 ; Galatians 4:24 Galatians 4:25 ; Hebrews 12:18-25 Thus terminates this most interesting and important book; abook containing a code of sacrificial, ceremonial, civil, andjudicial laws, which, for the purity of their morality, thewisdom, justice, and beneficence of their enactments, and thesimplicity, dignity, and impressive nature of their rites, areperfectly unrivalled, and altogether worthy of their DivineAuthor. All the rites and ceremonies of the Mosaic law are atonce dignified and expressive. They point out the holiness oftheir Author, the sinfulness of man, the necessity of anatonement, and the state of moral excellence to which the graceand mercy of the Creator have destined to raise the human soul.They include, as well as point out, the gospel of the Son ofGod; from which they receive their consummation and perfection.The sacrifices and oblations were significant of the atonementof Christ; the requisite qualities of these sacrifices wereemblematical of his immaculate character; and the prescribedmode in the form of these offerings, and the mystical ritesordained, were allusive institutions, calculated to enlightenthe apprehensions of the Jews, and to prepare them for thereception of the Gospel. The institution of the highpriesthood typified Jesus, the Great High Priest, called andprepared of God, who hath an unchangeable priesthood, and isable to save to the uttermost all that come unto God by him.
