(6) The soul which hath touched.—Better, the man who hath, that is, the priest for whom these laws are here enacted. Hence the ancient Chaldee version renders it “the man a priest.”
Shall be unclean until even.—When the day ends and another begins (see Lev. 11:24-32), and when he had to immerse his body in water.
