    Definitions for Ezekiel 44:19

    Sanctify - To be sacred and set apart.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 44:19

    They shall not sanctify the people - They shall not touch the people with their holy garments. The word "sanctify" is used because the effect of touching was to separate as holy the persons or things so touched (Exodus 29:37; Exodus 30:29; compare Leviticus 6:18). The priests wore the distinctive dress, only while performing in the temple strictly sacrificial services.

    The holy chambers; see Ezekiel 42:1 ff.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 44:19

    44:19 Shall not sanctify - By the law, common things, touching holy things, became consecrated, and no more fit for common use.
