EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Ezekiel 4:14; Ezekiel 44:31. The general prohibition occurs in Leviticus 11:39; Leviticus 17:15; Exodus 22:31. Ezekiel 44:31,
he shall not eat, to defile himself therewith; being impure food, at least in a ceremonial sense, and not fit to be eaten; these things were forbid a common Israelite, and much less might a priest eat of them, see Leviticus 17:15,That which dieth of itself, or is torn with beasts, he shall not eat to defile himself therewith; I am the LORD.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)8. Cp. Leviticus 17:15.
10–16 describe those to whom, outside the priestly body, permission to eat of the holy things may be extended.Numbers 18:11-19, Numbers 18:26-29). None of the descendants of Aaron were to approach these gifts, which were set apart for them, - i.e., to touch them either for the purpose of eating, or making them ready for eating, - whilst any uncleanness was upon them, on pain of extermination.
