12 " 'A clay pot that the man touches must be broken, and any wooden article is to be rinsed with water.
12 And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the issue, shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.
12 And an earthenware vessel that the one with the discharge touches shall be broken, and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.
12 "If a pottery container is touched by someone with a discharge, you must break it; a wooden article is to be rinsed in water.
12 The vessel of earth that he who has the discharge touches shall be broken, and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.
12 Any clay pot the man touches must be broken, and any wooden utensil he touches must be rinsed with water.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Leviticus 15:12
Laws concerning ceremonial uncleanness.
We need not be curious in explaining these laws; but have reason to be thankful that we need fear no defilement, except that of sin, nor need ceremonial and burdensome purifications. These laws remind us that God sees all things, even those which escape the notice of men. The great gospel duties of faith and repentance are here signified, and the great gospel privileges of the application of Christ's blood to our souls for our justification, and his grace for our sanctification.
