John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 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.
