Leviticus 7:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The flesh of the sin-offering was to be eaten after it had been boiled, like the meat-offering (Leviticus 6:16 and Leviticus 6:18), by the males among the priests alone. But this only applied to the sin-offerings the laity (Leviticus 4:22-5:13). The flesh of the sin-offerings for the high priest and the whole congregation (Leviticus 4:1-21), the blood of which was brought into the tabernacle "to make atonement in the sanctuary," i.e., that the expiation with the blood might be completed there, was not to be eaten, but to be burned with fire (Leviticus 4:12, Leviticus 4:21). - On the signification of this act of eating the flesh of the sin-offering, see at Leviticus 10:17.
