Cuttings [In The Flesh]

CUTTINGS [IN THE FLESH] [SMITH]

Cuttings in the flesh, or the laceration of one?s body for the "propitiation of their gods," (1 Kings 18:28) constituted a prominent feature of idolatrous worship, especially among the Syrians. The Israelites were prohibited from indulging in such practices. (Leviticus 19:28; 21:5; 14:1; Jeremiah 16:6)
