|Overview - Numbers 19|
|1||The water of separation made of the ashes of a red heifer.|
|11||The law for the use of it in purification of the unclean.|
Numbers 19:11 (King James Version)
He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean seven days.
- toucheth the dead
- He who touched a dead beast was only unclean for one day, ( Leviticus 11:12 , 27, ; 39;) but he who touches a dead man is unclean
- for seven days. This was certainly designed to show the peculiar impurity and sinfulness of man, and the hatefulness of sin, seven times worse than the vilest animal! 16 ; 5:2 Numbers 9:6 Numbers 9:10 31:19 Leviticus 11:31 ; Leviticus 21:1 Leviticus 21:11 Lamentations 4:14 ; Haggai 2:13
