Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 1:15


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.
