Flesh-Hook

Additional Links
A many-pronged fork used in the sacrificial services (1 Samuel 2:13,14; Exodus 27:3; 38:3 ) by the priest in drawing away the flesh. The fat of the sacrifice, together with the breast and shoulder (Leviticus 7:29-34 ), were presented by the worshipper to the priest. The fat was burned on the alter (3:3-5), and the breast and shoulder became the portion of the priests. But Hophni and Phinehas, not content with this, sent a servant to seize with a flesh-hook a further portion.
