Leviticus 13:9 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 13:9

When the plague of leprosy is in a man
He has all the signs of it, and it is pretty manifest both to himself and others that it is upon him;

then he shall be brought unto the priest;
by his friends and neighbours, if he is not willing to come of himself: a sinner insensible of the leprosy of sin, and of his unclean and miserable state through it, has no will to come to Christ the great High Priest for cleansing; but one that is sensible of it, and of Christ's ability to help and cleanse him, will come freely and gladly, and importunately seek to him for it; though indeed such an one is brought by powerful and efficacious grace to him, yet not against, but with his full will; see ( John 5:40 ) ( John 6:37 John 6:44 ) ; compare with this ( Matthew 8:1-3 ) ( Luke 17:12-14 ) .

Leviticus 13:9 In-Context

7 But if the eruption spreads in the skin, after he has shown himself to the priest for his cleansing, he shall appear again before the priest.
8 And the priest shall look, and if the eruption has spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a leprous disease.
9 "When a man is afflicted with a leprous disease, he shall be brought to the priest,
10 and the priest shall look. And if there is a white swelling in the skin that has turned the hair white, and there is raw flesh in the swelling,
11 it is a chronic leprous disease in the skin of his body, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean. He shall not shut him up, for he is unclean.
