CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
9:24 I said - When I first spake that I had invited the people to join with me in my sacrifice, and then to partake with me of the feast, I then bade the cook reserve this part for thy use.
"Since this is the ram for the ordination of Aaron and his sons, take the fat of the ram, including the fat of the broad tail, the fat around the internal organs, the long lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat around them, along with the right thigh.
"Set aside the portions of the ordination ram that belong to Aaron and his sons. This includes the breast and the thigh that were lifted up before the LORD as a special offering.
Give the right thigh of your peace offering to the priest as a gift.
The right thigh must always be given to the priest who offers the blood and the fat of the peace offering.
The meat of these animals will be yours, just like the breast and right thigh that are presented by lifting them up as a special offering before the altar.
1 Samuel 9:23
