Leviticus 17:11



11 Because the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you, that you may make atonement with it upon the altar for your souls, and the blood may be for an expiation of the soul.

Commentary on this verse  

By Henry MacLagan

Verse 11. For external worship ought to be truly harmonious with internal; and in heavenly worship it is so, because therein is the conjunction of Divine Truth with Divine Good, whereby the external man is harmonized with the internal, since Divine Truth cleanses man from evil, because it is from Divine Good which is Life itself.
