EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)And he took, the fat, and the rump.—Better, and he took the fat and the fat-tail (see Leviticus 3:9). For the import of this verse see Exodus 29:22.Leviticus 8:2 note), and then put the whole first upon the hands of Aaron and in succession upon the hands of his sons: in each case, according to Jewish tradition, he put his own hands under the hands of the priest, moving them backwards and forwards, so as to wave the mass to and fro.
In this remarkable ceremony the gifts of the people appear to have been made over to the priests, as if in trust, for the service of the altar. The articles were presented to Yahweh and solemnly waved in the hands of the priests, but not by their own act and deed. The mediator of the Law, who was expressly commissioned on this occasion, was the agent in the process.
The rump - See Leviticus 3:9 note.Leviticus 8:23 is the same as is ordered, Exodus 29:19 and needs no further explanation; See Gill on Exodus 29:19, Exodus 29:20, Exodus 29:21, Exodus 29:22. And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right shoulder:
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)25. Moses then puts on the hands of Aaron and his sons (1) the fat and other parts of the sacrifice which were always burnt upon the altar (cp. Leviticus 3:9-10), (2) the right thigh (not shoulder R.V. mg. and A.V.) and (3) one of each of the oblations that were in the basket brought in accordance with the injunctions of Exodus 29:3; Exodus 29:23 (cp. Leviticus 7:12-14, and the note there). The whole is waved as a Wave-Offering before the Lord and burnt upon the altar. Parts (2) and (3) are priestly portions (Leviticus 7:14; Leviticus 7:32), but as on this occasion Aaron and his sons were not entitled to them (for their consecration was not yet complete) they are offered to the Lord.
The act of placing these portions on the hands of Aaron and his sons seems to indicate that they were assigned to the priests for certain purposes; those portions which were reserved for the altar were to be offered by them upon it, those which were priestly dues were to be retained by themselves.
The name of the sacrifice—the ram of consecration—is connected with this action of Moses. The usual term for appointing a priest is to ‘fill his hand’ (Jdg 17:5; Jdg 17:12), where the word consecrate is rendered in the margin ‘filled the hand of.’
Moses here fills the hands of Aaron and his sons with materials for an offering and the word ‘consecration’ may be rendered ‘fillings’ [of the hand].Leviticus 1:3-9), and served to set forth the priests, who had appointed it as their substitute through the laying on of hands, as a living, holy, and well-pleasing sacrifice to the Lord, and to sanctify them to the Lord with all the faculties of both body and soul.
