Leviticus 20:3-4

Context
20:3 I myself will set my face 1  against that man and cut him off from the midst of his people, 2  because he has given some of his children to Molech and thereby defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. 3  20:4 If, however, the people of the land shut their eyes 4  to that man 5  when he gives some of his children to Molech so that they do not put him to death,

1 tn Heb “And I, I shall give my faces.”

2 sn On the “cut off” penalty see the notes on Lev 7:20 and 17:4.

3 tn Heb “for the sake of defiling my sanctuary and to profane my holy name.”

4 tn Heb “And if shutting [infinitive absolute] they shut [finite verb].” For the infinitive absolute used to highlight contrast rather than emphasis see GKC 343 §113.p.

5 tn Heb “from that man” (so ASV); NASB “disregard that man.”
