Focus Verses for Today: Leviticus 19:1-37
Ask God for His understanding of Leviticus 19-21. Read Leviticus 19-21. Let’s journey!
Commentary: The Lord had already given the Israelites the 10 Commandments, but in the first chapter of today’s reading, the Lord expands upon those instructions, applying them to everyday, real-world situations. The Lord knew the Israelites’ weaknesses and focused on them during His instructions. The Lord then gives instructions regarding punishment for those who break His laws. The punishments are harsh, meant to deter crime and prevent lawlessness from spreading like a disease. The final chapter of today’s reading focuses on the responsibilities of the priests. The priests had greater responsibilities to follow the law due to their position and knowledge.
