8 And if her hand find not enough for a lamb, then she shall take two turtledoves, or two young doves; one for a burnt·​·offering, and one for a sin offering; and the priest shall make· an ·atonement for her, and she shall be·​·clean.


Commentary on this verse  

By Henry MacLagan

Verse 8. But if the regenerating member of the church is unable in completing life's work to worship the Lord from celestial good, and thus to become an angel of the third heaven, he shall do so from spiritual good, and become an angel of the second or of the ultimate heaven, by the worship of the Lord from charity, and by the removal of evil according to that state. And thus also there will be complete purification.
