Leviticus 17:8-9


17:8 “You are to say to them: ‘Any man 1  from the house of Israel or 2  from the foreigners who reside 3  in their 4  midst, who offers 5  a burnt offering or a sacrifice 17:9 but does not bring it to the entrance of the Meeting Tent to offer it 6  to the Lord – that person will be cut off from his people. 7 

1 tn Heb “Man, man.” The repetition of the word “man” is distributive, meaning “any [or “every”] man” (GKC 395-96 §123.c; cf. Lev 15:2).

2 tn Heb “and.” Here the Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) has an alternative sense (“or”).

3 tn Heb “from the sojourner who sojourns.”

4 tc The LXX, Syriac, and Vulgate have “your” (plural) rather than “their.”

5 tn Heb “causes to go up.”

6 tn Heb “to make it,” meaning “to make the sacrifice.”

7 tn For remarks on the “cut off” penalty see the note on v. 4 above.
