Leviticus 7

Verse 1

Verse 2

they = the people who bring them.

Verse 3

offer = bring near. Hebrew. karab. App-43 . For these regulations See Leviticus 3:3 , Leviticus 3:4 , Leviticus 3:8 , Leviticus 3:9 .

the priest's. Except the memorial part, Leviticus 2:4-10 . Compare 1 Corinthians 9:13 , 1 Corinthians 9:14 .Galatians 1:6 , Galatians 1:6 is based on this principle.

Verse 11

the law: i.e. specific and fuller directions given to the priests, additional to those given to the People in Leviticus 3:1-15 . So in the law of the sin offering (Leviticus 6:24-30 , compare with Leviticus 4:24-31 ); the law of the trespass offering (Leviticus 7:1-10 , compare with Leviticus 5:1-13 ). It will be noted from the Structure (on p. 134) that the peace offering comes before the sin offerings; but here, in "the LAW" of the offerings, the peace offerings comes last. This is because it has to do with the communion of the offerer; and this follows at the end of all, to show that this communion is based on, and must flow from, a full knowledge of all that which the types foreshow. Not until we have done with our sins and ourselves can we delight in Christ. See note on Leviticus 6:8 . Compare Colossians 1:12-14 .
