Leviticus 22:4 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)
(4) Is a leper.—The different forms of uncleanness are now specified. (For the leper, see Lev. 13:3.)
Or hath a running issue.—See Lev. 15:2.
Whoso toucheth any thing that is unclean by the dead.—That is, if he touches any person or anything that had been defiled through contact with a corpse. (See Num. 19:11-14.)
Whose seed goeth from him.—This is the same case mentioned in Lev. 15:16. The two passages ought therefore to be uniform in the translation.
