    Definitions for Leviticus 21:18

    Superfluous - Over and above; more than enough.

    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 21:18

    A blind man - That is, in one eye; for he that was utterly blind could not possibly be employed in such a service. A flat nose, like that of an ape; so the best versions. Any thing superfluous, such as six fingers, six toes, etc.

    Wesley's Notes on Leviticus 21:18

    21:18 A flat nose - Most restrain this word to the nose, and to some great deformity relating to it. But according to others, it signifies more generally, a person that wants some member or members, because the next word, to which it is opposed, signifies one that hath more members than he should.
