Bible Commentary for Leviticus 1:13

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 1:13


1:11 North - ward - Here this and other kinds of sacrifices were killed, #Lev 6:25|, and #Lev 7:2|, because here seems to have been the largest and most convenient place for that work, the altar being probably near the middle of the east - end of the building, and the entrance being on the south - side. Besides this might design the place of Christ's death both more generally, in Jerusalem, which was in the sides of the north, #Psa 48:2|, and more specially, on mount Calvary, which was on the north - west side of Jerusalem.

1:14 Turtle - doves - These birds were appointed for the poor who could not bring better. And these birds are preferred before others, partly because they were easily gotten, and partly because they are fit representations of Christ's chastity, and meekness, and gentleness, for which these birds are remarkable. The pigeons must be young, because then they are best; but the turtle - doves are better when they are grown up, and therefore they are not confined to that age.

1:15 His head - From the rest of the body; as sufficiently appears, because this was to be burnt by itself, and the body afterwards, #Lev 1:17|. And whereas it is said #Lev 5:8|. He shall - wring his head from his neck, but shall not divide it asunder, that is spoken not of the burnt - offering as here, but of the sin - offering.
