Leviticus 22:6 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 22:6

The soul which hath touched any such shall be unclean until
even
Which is the time fixed by the several laws for such uncleannesses, see ( Leviticus 11:31 ) ( Leviticus 15:5 Leviticus 15:7 Leviticus 15:16 ) ; and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he wash his flesh with
water;
in forty seahs of water, as the Targum of Jonathan; yea, when the evening is come, he may not eat of the heave or wave offerings, until he has dipped himself all over in water; nor should any eat of the Lord's supper under the New Testament, but such as are first baptized in water.

Leviticus 22:6 In-Context

4 What man soever of the seed of Aaron is a leper, or hath a running issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean. And whoso toucheth any thing that is unclean by the dead, or a man whose seed goeth from him;
5 Or whosoever toucheth any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, whatsoever uncleanness he hath;
6 The soul which hath touched any such shall be unclean until even, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he wash his flesh with water.
7 And when the sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward eat of the holy things; because it is his food.
8 That which dieth of itself, or is torn with beasts, he shall not eat to defile himself therewith: I am the LORD.
