    VERSE 1
    - Speak.
       * Ho 5:1 Mal 2:1,4
    - There.
       * :11; 10:6,7 Nu 19:14,16 Eze 44:25
    
    VERSE 2

       * Eze 24:16,17
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - not make baldness.
      This custom is also called rounding the corners of the head,
      (ch. 27 19:27,) and seems to have been performed in honor of
      some idol.
    
       * Le 10:6; 19:27,28 De 14:1 Isa 15:2; 22:12 Jer 16:6; 48:37 Eze 44:20
       * Am 8:10 Mic 1:16
    - the corner.
      The Hebrew {peath zakon}, may denote the whiskers; as the
      Syriac {phatho} signifies.  These are by the Arabs, according
      to Niebuhr, still cut entirely off, or worn quite short; and
      hence they are called by Jeremiah, [            ,] those with
      cropped whiskers.  Perhaps some superstition, of which we are
      ignorant, was connected with this; but whether or not, it was
      the object of Moses to keep the Israelites distinct from
      other nations.

    - uncover.
       * Le 10:6,7; 13:45 2Sa 15:30 Es 6:12

       * Ge 37:34 Job 1:20 Mt 26:65
      All human corpses were considered as unclean.  Whoever
      touched one was unclean for seven days, and was obliged on
      the third and seventh day to purify himself according to the
      Mosaic instructions.  In the case of the priest it went still
      farther; insomuch, that even mourning for the dead by any
      external sign, such as tearing their clothes, defiled them.
      Hence such mournings were absolutely forbidden to be used in
      any case, and by the other priests also, except in the case
      of their very nearest relations, for whom they were allowed
      to mourn.  This statue is founded on the importance of
      sustaining the decency and purity of Divine worship.  The
      servants of the Deity were to keep themselves at a distance
      from every thing that in the least degree savored of
      uncleanness.
    
    
    VERSE 11

      In the above list of blemishes, we meet with some that might
      render the priest contemptible in the eyes of men; and others
