Leviticus 18:27 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(27) For all these abominations.—Though the contents of this verse are substantially the same as those in Lev. 18:24-25, yet the wording is different. In the former the Israelites are exhorted not to pollute themselves as the different tribes or nations have both polluted themselves and the land, whilst here the inhabitants of Canaan are more specifically described as having practised the abominations. The repetition of the same sentiments in diiferent words, as is frequently the case in Hebrew, is designed to impart emphasis. The parentheses are unnecessary.
