EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Therefore shall ye keep my commandments.—Better, and ye shall keep my commandments. The law about the priests and sacrifices now concludes with an appeal to both the priests and the people to faithfully observe these commandments.
Neither shall ye profane my holy name.—Better, and ye shall not profane. The rendering of the conjunctives, both in the former verse and in this, by “therefore” and “neither,” as is done in the Authorised version, is not only unnecessary, but mars the simple and dignified style of the original. For the manner in which God’s name is profaned when His commandments are violated, see Leviticus 18:21.Exodus 23:19 note. I am the Lord; See Gill on Leviticus 22:30.
I am the Lord; See Gill on Leviticus 22:30.Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the LORD.
