Leviticus 7:3 MEANING

Leviticus 7:3
(3, 4) And he shall offer.--For the regulations here described, see Leviticus 3:3-4; Leviticus 3:8-9, &c.

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.And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof,.... To the Lord, that being claimed by him, as in the peace offerings of the herd, and of the flock, whether a bullock or cow, a lamb or a goat, Leviticus 3:3, &c. and in the sin offering of the bullock, Leviticus 1:8,

and the rump, or tail, which of sheep and rams, for the trespass offering, was very large and fat in those countries; See Gill on Exodus 29:22, Leviticus 3:9,

and the fat that covereth the inwards; called the "omentum".
