    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 22:25

    A stranger's hand - The word here rendered "stranger", is not the same as that in Leviticus 22:10, Leviticus 22:18 : it means literally, "the son of the unknown", and probably refers to one dwelling in another land who desired to show respect to the God of Israel. See 1 Kings 8:41.
