Leviticus 11-15 (The Daily Walk Bible).
The supplemental verse is: “But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged” (1 Corinthians 11:31).
So, when we consider our Bible reading, is this where the old saying “cleanliness is next to godliness” comes from?!?!?
Seriously though, the practicality of some of these laws is simply amazing. Sure, they should just obey because God said so, but there is a reason behind many of these laws when you think of bacteria and disease. Even leprosy in houses! While much is being made about mold and mildew in houses today being bad for your health, the Israelites were warned about it thousands of years ago!
