EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)
(31-34) The writer having digressed in Exodus 29:27 from his main subject (the consecration of Aaron and his sons) to the consideration of certain permanent laws which arose out of the occasion, returns to his main subject at this point, and records the directions which he received with respect to the feast that followed, as a matter of course, on the consecration sacrifice. The parts of the victim neither consumed on the altar nor assigned to the officiating priest, were to be boiled at the door of the Tabernacle (Leviticus 8:31), and there consumed by Aaron and his sons, together with the loaf of unleavened bread, the oiled cake, and the wafer, which still remained in the “basket of consecrations” (Leviticus 8:31) mentioned in Exodus 29:3; Exodus 29:23. No “stranger”—i.e., no layman—was to join with them in the feast (Exodus 29:33); and, if they were unable to consume the whole, what remained was to be burnt. (Comp. the injunctions with respect to the paschal lamb, given in Exodus 12:10; Exodus 23:18.) Christian ritualism draws from these injunctions the propriety of an entire consumption of the elements on each occasion of the celebration of the Eucharist.
Leviticus 8:31. And part of this was eaten by the person or persons that brought the offering, though they were of the people, who were not admitted into any other holy place but this. and seethe his flesh in the holy place; not in that part of the tabernacle which was properly the holy place, as distinguished from the holy of holies, and from the court of the tabernacle; for in that there was no convenience for boiling, but in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation, even at the door of it, as in Leviticus 8:31.

EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)31. seethe] i.e. boil, as the word is actually rendered (in both AV. and RV.) in the parallel place, Leviticus 8:31.
its flesh] apart from the right thigh (v. 22), and, if v. 27 form an original part of the regulation, the breast.
in a holy place, i.e. in the court: see on Leviticus 6:16. In the║, Leviticus 8:31, ‘at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting,’ where also (as directed here in v. 32) it is to be eaten.
31–34. Continuation of v. 26 (cf. Leviticus 8:31-32). The sacrificial meal accompanying the peace-offering; the flesh of the ram of installation to be eaten by Aaron and his sons in the court of the Tent of Meeting. For the general principle, see Leviticus 7:15-21; and cf. on Exodus 18:12.Verse 31. - The ram of consecration - i.e., the part of the ram that was left and had not been burnt (ver. 25). Seethe his flesh in the holy place. This was understood to mean boiling at the door of the tabernacle (Leviticus 8:31). A sacrificial meal followed on every peace-offering, in which the offerers participated. (See above, Exodus 18:12.) Leviticus 1-7. It will be more advisable therefore to defer the examination of this ceremony till we come to Leviticus 8, where the consecration itself is described. The same may also be said of the expiation and anointing of the altar, which are commanded in Exodus 29:36 and Exodus 29:37, and carried out in Leviticus 8:11.
