Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 8:12


8:12 He poured - In a plentiful manner, as appears from #Psa 133:2|, whereas other persons and things were only sprinkled with it: because his unction was to typify the anointing of Christ with the Spirit, which was not given by measure to him. A measure of the same anointing is given to all believers.
