Numbers 28:1-29:40

(31) And to offer all burnt sacrifices.--Rather, And over all offering of burnt offerings. The Levites had to select and prepare the victims, the priests offered them, when ready, upon the altar. The Levites had to do this "by number," i.e., according to the several numbers prescribed by the Law for each occasion. (See Numbers 28)

According to the order commanded unto them.--According to the rule concerning them: i.e., concerning the sacrifices.

Continually.--Heb., tamid, the technical term in connection with the burnt offerings, which regularly recurred at stated times, e.g., a lamb was offered morning and evening. (Comp. Numbers 28:6.)

Verse 31. - And to offer; Hebrew, "and for all the offering of burnt offerings."
