Leviticus 19:8 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(8) Therefore every one that eateth it.—See Lev. 7:18-20.

That soul shall be cut off from among his people.—Better, That soul shall be cut off from his people, as the Authorised Version renders it in four out of the six instances (see Lev. 7:20-21; Lev. 7:25; Lev. 7:27) in which this phrase occurs in the Book of Leviticus. When so important a legal formula, threatening death by excision, is used in a limited number of cases, it is most important that it should be rendered uniformly in a translation. (See Note on Lev. 22:3.)
