Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 1:4

_ _ shall put his hand upon the head — This was a significant act which implied not only that the offerer devoted the animal to God, but that he confessed his consciousness of sin and prayed that his guilt and its punishment might be transferred to the victim.

_ _ and it shall be — rather, “that it may be an acceptable atonement.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 1:3-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 1:4

He shall put his hand — Both his hands, Leviticus 8:14, Leviticus 8:18, and Leviticus 16:21. Whereby he signified, that he willingly gave it to the Lord. That he judged himself worthy of that death which it suffered in his stead; and that he laid his sins upon it with an eye to him upon whom God would lay the iniquity of us all, Isaiah 53:6, and that together with it he did freely offer up himself to God. To make atonement — Sacramentally; as directing his faith and thoughts to that true propitiatory sacrifice which in time was to be offered up for him. And although burnt — offerings were commonly offered by way of thanksgiving; yet they were sometimes offered by way of atonement for sin, that is, for sins in general, as appears from Job 1:5, but for particular sins there were special sacrifices.
