Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he
jealous over his wife (See Gill on Numbers 5:14);
and shall set the woman before the Lord;
has carried the matter so far as to bring his wife to the priest or civil magistrate, and declare his suspicion, and the ground of it:
and the priest shall execute upon her all this
he shall proceed according to the law, and perform every rite and ceremony required; nor could any stop be put to it, unless the woman owned she was defiled.
