John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 16:16

Because of the uncleannesses of Israel — For though the people did not enter into that place, yet their sins entered thither, and would hinder the effects of the high — priest's mediation on their behalf if God was not reconciled to them. In the midst of their uncleanness — ln the midst of a sinful people, who defile not themselves only, but also God's sanctuary. And God hereby shewed them, how much their hearts needed to be purified, when even the tabernacle, only by standing in the midst of them, needed this expiation.
