3祭司 要察看 肉 皮上 的灾病 ,若灾病 处的毛 已经变 白 ,灾病 的现象 深于 肉上 的皮 ,这便是大痲疯 的灾病 。祭司 要察看他 ,定他为不洁净 。
3And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.
3 Verse 3. The priest shall-pronounce him unclean.]

vetimme otho; literally, shall pollute him, i. e., in the Hebrew

idiom, shall declare or pronounce him polluted; and in

Le 13:23,

it is said, the priest shall pronounce him clean,

vetiharo haccohen, the priest shall cleanse him, i. e., declare

him clean. In this phrase we have the proper meaning of Mt 16:19:

Whatsoever ye bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven; and

whatsoever ye loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. By

which our Lord intimates that the disciples, from having the

keys, i. e., the true knowledge of the doctrine, of the kingdom

of heaven, should, from particular evidences, be at all times

able to distinguish between the clean and the unclean, the

sincere and the hypocrite; and pronounce a judgment as

infallible as the priest did in the case of the leprosy, from

the tokens already specified. And as this binding and loosing,

or pronouncing fit or unfit for fellowship with the members of

Christ, must in the case of the disciples be always according to

the doctrine of the kingdom of heaven, the sentence should be

considered as proceeding immediately from thence, and

consequently as Divinely ratified. The priest polluted or

cleansed, i. e., declared the man clean or unclean, according to

signs well known and infallible. The disciples or ministers of

Christ bind or loose, declare to be fit or unfit for Church

fellowship, according to unequivocal evidences of innocence or

guilt. In the former case, the priest declared the person fit

or unfit for civil society; in the latter, the ministers of

Christ declare the person against whom the suspicion of guilt is

laid, fit or unfit for continued association with the Church of

God. The office was the same in both, a declaration of the

truth, not from any power that they possessed of cleansing or

polluting, of binding or of loosing, but by the knowledge they

gained from the infallible signs and evidences produced on the

respective cases.
