Leviticus 15:31 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)
(31) Thus shall ye separate.—That is, according to the regulations laid down in this chapter. “Ye”—i.e., Moses and Aaron, to whom they were conjointly addressed (see Lev. 15:1)—are to restrain the children of Israel, lest they be punished with death when they approach the Lord in a defiled state.
Defile my tabernacle.—Better, my dwelling place, which can here be used, though in Lev. 8:10, where it also occurs, the expression “dwelling-place” does not suit so well.
