John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Thou shalt have also a place without the camp,.... A place prepared, as the Targums of Onkelos and Jonathan, provided on purpose for the use hereafter suggested; so Ben Melech:

whither thou shalt go forth abroad; to do the necessities of nature, which they were to do without the camp, not in any place they thought fit and most convenient, but what was appointed for that purpose.

Deuteronomy 23:12 Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad:

Ver. 12. And shalt turn back and cover.] How much more curious should they be of soul defilements? Sin is the soul’s excrements, and defiles a man worse than any excement. [Matthew 7:15; Matthew 7:20; Matthew 7:23]
