Numbers 19:13


Anyone who touches the corpse of any dead person and does not purify himself defiles the tabernacle of the Lord. And that person must be cut off from Israel, 1  because the water of purification was not sprinkled on him. He will be unclean; his uncleanness remains on him.


Le 5:3,6,17; Le 7:20; Le 15:31; Le 22:3; Nu 8:7; Nu 15:30; Nu 19:9,18; Pr 14:32; Joh 8:24; Heb 2:2,3; Heb 10:29; Re 21:8; Re 22:11,15

NET © Notes

sn It is in passages like this that the view that being “cut off” meant the death penalty is the hardest to support. Would the Law prescribe death for someone who touches a corpse and fails to follow the ritual? Besides, the statement in this section that his uncleanness remains with him suggests that he still lives on.
