Explanation of Leviticus 10      

By Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-7. Those who are in doctrine without a good life profane their worship by the lusts of selfish love, and are consequently vastated; but the good are instructed that worship ought to be internal as well as external; that external worship merely ought to be removed; and that with them the two should not be separated, lest profanation occur

Verses 8-11. The celestial man is instructed that worship must be from good, and not from truth, that a distinction may be made between true worship and false, and that the celestial may flow in with the spiritual, in order that the latter may receive instruction in Divine Truths

Verses 12-15. Concerning the appropriation of good with the celestial and spiritual man, and how it is connected with perception on the part of the former and acknowledgement on the part of the latter that all life is from the Lord

Verses 16-20. Further instruction as to the non-appropriation of good in profane worship, in consequence of there being no conjunction with the Lord by the good of innocence, and therefore no deliverance from evil.
