Leviticus 18:22 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(22) As with womankind.—This was the sin of Sodom (Gen. 19:5), whence it derived its name, and in spite of the penalty of death enacted by the Law against those who were found guilty of it (see Lev. 20:13), the Israelites did not quite relinquish this abominable vice (Jdg. 19:22; 1Ki. 14:24), to which the surrounding nations were addicted and which was so prevalent in the time of the Apostles (Rom. 1:27; 1Co. 6:9; Gal. 5:19; 1Ti. 1:10). By the law of Christ those who are guilty of this sin are excluded from the kingdom of God (1Co. 6:9-10), whilst the laws of civilised Europe rightly inflict the severest penalties upon offenders of this kind.
