NOTES ON LEVITICUS 20:14

This Is From The Companion Bible.
LEVITICUS CHAPTER 20:
 14  And if a  man take a  °wife and her mother, it is
°wickedness:  they shall be  °burnt with fire, both  
he
and
they; that there be no  °wickedness among you.

[ 3 man.  Hebrew 'ish. Appendix 14. iii. (Brought forward from notes on verse three) ]
 
14  wife and her mother.  See chapter 18:17.
 wickedness = disgraceful thing.  Hebrew chesed (Appendix 44. xiv).  Chesed is a Homonym: that is to say, another word, spelt the same. It means (1) mercy, grace, goodness (Genesis 24:
12. 2Samuel 7:15. 1Chronicles 19:2. 2Chronicles 6:14. Job 37:13. Psalm 103:4, 8, 11, etc.)  But here (2) it is chesed, a disgraceful or reproachful thing.  It is so taken here and in Proverbs 14:34.
 burnt = burnt up: that is to say, in judgment.  Hebrew saraph. Appendix 43 I. viii.
