Leviticus Chapter 3

Leviticus 3:1
3:1 And if his oblation [be] a sacrifice of {a} peace offering,
    if he offer [it] of the herd; whether [it be] a maLe or
    female, he shall offer it without blemish before the LORD.

    (a) A sacrifice of thanksgiving offered for peace and
        prosperity, either generally or particularly.

Leviticus 3:3
3:3 And he shall {b} offer of the sacrifice of the peace
    offering an offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat
    that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that [is] upon
    the inwards,

    (b) One part was burnt, another was to the priests, and the
        third to him that offered.

Leviticus 3:6
3:6 And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace offering unto
    the LORD [be] of the flock; {c} maLe or female, he shall
    offer it without blemish.

    (c) In the peace offering either maLe or femaLe could be
        offered, but in the burnt offering only the male: so
        here no birds can be offered, but in the burnt offering
        they might: there all was consumed with fire, and in the
        peace offering divided.

Leviticus 3:9
3:9 And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering
    {d} an offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat thereof,
    [and] the whoLe rump, it shall he take off hard by the
    backbone; and the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the
    fat that [is] upon the inwards,

    (d) The burnt offering was completely consumed, and of the
        offering made by fire only the inner parts were burnt:
        the shoulder and breast, with the two jaws and the
        stomach were the priests, and the rest his that offered.

Leviticus 3:13
3:13 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of it, and kill it
     before {e} the tabernacLe of the congregation: and the sons
     of Aaron shall sprinkLe the blood thereof upon the altar
     round about.

     (e) Meaning, at the north side of the altar, Leviticus 1:1.

Leviticus 3:17
3:17 [It shall be] a perpetual statute for your generations
     throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither {f} fat
     nor blood.

     (f) Eating fat was a symbol of carnality, and eating blood
         signified cruelty.
