(9) And all the meat offering.—Better, every meat offering. That is, dressed in whichever of the three ways here mentioned. (See Leviticus 2:4-7.)

Shall be the priest’s.—With the exception of the memorial part, which was burnt upon the altar (see Leviticus 2:4-10), the whole was to go to the particular priest who offered it.

Leviticus 7:9. All the meat or meal-offering shall be the priest’s — Except the part reserved by God, (Leviticus 2:2; Leviticus 2:9,) these being ready dressed, and hot, and to be eaten presently. And the priest who offered it was, in reason, to expect something more than his brethren who laboured not about it, and that he had only in this offering; for the others were equally distributed. For (Leviticus 7:10) every meat or meal-offering, which was of raw flour, whether mingled with oil or dry, that is, without oil, or drink-offering, all the sons of Aaron were to share equally among them. And there was manifest reason for this difference, because these were offered in greater quantities than the former; and, being raw, might more easily be reserved for the several priests, to dress them in the way which each of them might prefer.7:1-10 In the sin-offering and the trespass-offering, the sacrifice was divided between the altar and the priest; the offerer had no share, as he had in the peace-offerings. The former expressed repentance and sorrow for sin, therefore it was more proper to fast than feast; the peace-offerings denoted communion with a reconciled God in Christ, the joy and gratitude of a pardoned sinner, and the privileges of a true believer.See the marginal references. 8. the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered—All the flesh and the fat of the burnt offerings being consumed, nothing remained to the priest but the skin. It has been thought that this was a patriarchal usage, incorporated with the Mosaic law, and that the right of the sacrificer to the skin of the victim was transmitted from the example of Adam (see on [37]Ge 3:21). All the meat-offering, except the part reserved by God, Leviticus 2:2,9. Shall be the priest’s that offereth it, because these were ready drest and hot, and not to be presently eaten; and because the priest who offered it was in reason to expect and have something more than his brethren who laboured not about it; and that he had only in this offering, for the other were equally distributed. And all the meat offering that is baked in the oven,.... Or "every meat offering" (b), whether dressed in one way or another, and which was done in one or other of these three ways, of which this was one, baked in an oven heated for that purpose:

and all that is dressed in the frying pan; such as we call pancakes:

and in the pan; which was different from the frying pan; it seems to be what was set upon an hearth made hot, and soon baked; See Gill on Leviticus 6:21 of these three different ways of dressing the meat offering, see Leviticus 2:4.

(b) "omne munus", Pagninus, Montanus, Junius & Tremellius, Piscator, &c.

And all the meat offering that is baked in the oven, and all that is dressed in the frying pan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offereth it.
9. The three methods of preparing the Meal-Offering specified in this verse are also enumerated in Leviticus 2:4-7 (see notes there). Many commentators distinguish between these cooked forms of the Meal-offering (here assigned to the priest who offereth it) and the other Meal-Offerings ‘mingled with oil’ described in Leviticus 2:1-3; Leviticus 2:14-16, and ‘dry’ Meal-Offerings, such as the Sin-Offering of the poor man (Leviticus 5:11) and the jealousy-offering (Numbers 5:15). These belong to ‘all the sons of Aaron one as well as another’ (Leviticus 7:10). No reason is here given for this different assignment of the Meal-Offerings. All the Meal-Offerings of ch. 2 are mingled with oil, and according to the Jewish traditional interpretation ‘the meal-offering mingled with oil’ includes all the offerings of ch. 2, and the ‘dry’ offering refers to the Sin-Offering of the poor man, and the jealousy-offering. In Leviticus 2:3; Leviticus 2:10 and Leviticus 6:16; Leviticus 6:18 that which is left of the Meal-Offering, whether cooked or not, is assigned to ‘Aaron and his sons.’The fat portions only were to be burned upon the altar, viz., the same as in the sin and peace-offerings (see Leviticus 4:8 and Leviticus 3:9); but the flesh was to be eaten by the priests, as in the sin-offering (Leviticus 6:22), inasmuch as there was the same law in this respect for both the sin-offering and trespass-offering; and these parts of the sacrificial service must therefore have had the same meaning, every trespass being a sin (see Leviticus 6:26). - Certain analogous instructions respecting the burnt-offering and meat-offering are appended in Leviticus 7:8-10 by way of supplement, as they ought properly to have been given in ch. 6, in the laws relating to the sacrifices in question.
