(a) By this Moses declares that he taught nothing to the people but that which he received from God.

Verse 2

1:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the {b} cattle, [even] of the herd, and of the flock.

(b) So they could offer of no other sort, but of those who were commanded.

Verse 11
