    Clarke's Commentary on Exodus 19:13

    There shall not a hand touch it - בו bo, Him, not the mountain, but the man who had presumed to touch the mountain. He should be considered altogether as an unclean and accursed thing, not to be touched for fear of conveying defilement; but should be immediately stoned or pierced through with a dart, Hebrews 12:20.

    Barnes' Notes on Exodus 19:13

    Touch it - Rather "touch him." The person who had touched the mount was not to be touched, since the contact would be pollution.
