Leviticus Chapter 21 Summary

Levi chapter 21, that is Leviticus chapter 21 summary is about what the priest can and cannot do when it comes to regular life and defiling themselves.

For instance, the chapter begins with God commanding that priests should not defile themselves for the dead.

This means they cannot come around dead bodies. The only exception for near family such as his mother, father, son, daughter, brother, and sister (if she is a virgin and not married).

Leviticus Chapter 21 Summary

He can’t be defiled being the chief among his people because they are holy unto God.

Priest Can’t Have Any Woman

Priest weren’t allowed to take a wife who used to have “fun” in the streets, or who was divorced from her husband. A daughter of a priest could not behave like the women of other tribes and do things like play the role of a whore (not that other tribes had a pass on this either).

Priest also could not have blemishes or deformities, like being lame, born without legs, be blind, or dwarf; things like that would make one unqualified to be one of God’s priest (although he was born a Levite).

We pray the Father to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus the Messiah. Amen!
