Leviticus 15:17 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 15:17

And every garment, and every skin
Or that is made of skin, which a man wears, or lies upon, see ( Leviticus 13:48 ) ; whereon is the seed of copulation;
or on any other, for, as Gersom says, there is the same law concerning the rest of vessels, seeing this is a principal uncleanness, and defiles vessels; and perhaps the law makes mention of these, because it is more apt to be found on them: shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even;
see ( Jude 1:23 ) .
