Treasury of Scripture

And they removed the burnt offerings, that they might give according to the divisions of the families of the people, to offer to the LORD, as it is written in the book of Moses. And so did they with the oxen.

as it is written

Leviticus 3:3,5,9-11,14-16
And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, …









(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).
