Leviticus 20:10 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(10) Shall be surely put to death—That is, by stoning. (See Lev. 20:2.) This precept is also to be found in Exo. 21:17; Pro. 20:20, and is referred to by our Lord (Mat. 15:14; Mar. 7:10).

His blood shall be upon him—That is, he has brought it upon himself to be killed. (See Jos. 2:19.) This phrase, which occurs seven times either in the singular or plural, is only to be found in this chapter (See Lev. 20:9; Lev. 20:11-13; Lev. 20:16; Lev. 20:27). According to the authorities during the second Temple, it carried with it death by lapidation.

(10) Shall surely be put to death.—This is, by penalty for the sin forbidden in Lev. 18:20. According to Jewish tradition whenever the phrase “shall surely be put to death” occurs by itself, it denotes death by strangling. This death was inflicted for six crimes—upon him who had commerce with another man’s wife; who smote his father or mother; (3) who stole an Israelite; (4) who being an elder rebelled against the decree of the senate (Deu. 17:12); (5) who played the false prophet; and (6) who prophesied in the name of another god.
