Hence that which was burnt unto God was called His bread (Numbers 28:2; Ezekiel 44:7), and the priests who burnt it are described as offering “ the bread of their God” (Leviticus 21:6; Leviticus 21:8; Leviticus 21:17).Leviticus 1:9 note. The priest shall burn it, i.e. the parts now mentioned, and for the rest, they fell to the priest, Leviticus 7:31.
The food of the offering, i.e. the fuel of the fire, or the matter of the offering. It is called food, bread, to note God’s acceptance of it, and delight in it, as men delight in their food.
it is the food of the offering made by fire unto the Lord; or "bread"; this part of the offering that was burnt belonged to the Lord; it was his food, and what was accepted of by him, and therefore is elsewhere called the bread of God, Leviticus 21:8.And the priest shall burn it upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire unto the LORD.
