(12) They removed.--Cut off those parts of the victims which had to be consumed on the altar of burnt offering. (Comp. Leviticus 3:9; Leviticus 4:31.) These parts are naturally called "the burnt offering," although no special burnt offering was appointed for the evening of the Passover.

That they might give . . . people.--To give them to the sections of the father-houses of the sons of the people. After separating the proper pieces, the Levites gave them to the sections which they were serving, to be presented in turn to the priests for burning on the altar.

To Offer.--Haqrib; as in Leviticus 3:9; Leviticus 3:14.

As it is written.--Referring to the rule that "all the fat is the Lord's" (Leviticus 3:16).

And so did they.--And so for the oxen. The proper portions of these also were separated for consumption on the brazen altar; the rest of the carcases furnished food for the sacrificial festivities.

Verse 12. - Removed; i.e. cut off; the verso purporting that those who officiated cut off those portions of the animals slain which were of the nature of burnt offering, that they might be taken by the offering worshippers to the priests at the altars, there to be entirely consumed. Of the people; probably better, literally, to the children of the people, i.e. "to the people" (Leviticus 3:3-16). 35:1-19 The destruction Josiah made of idolatry, was more largely related in the book of Kings. His solemnizing the passover is related here. The Lord's supper resembles the passover more than any other of the Jewish festivals; and the due observance of that ordinance, is a proof of growing piety and devotion. God alone can truly make our hearts holy, and prepare them for his holy services; but there are duties belonging to us, in doing which we obtain this blessing from the Lord.
