Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 1:9

_ _ but his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water, etc. — This part of the ceremony was symbolical of the inward purity, and the holy walk, that became acceptable worshippers.

_ _ a sweet savour unto the Lord — is an expression of the offerer’s piety, but especially as a sacrificial type of Christ.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 1:3-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 1:9

But the inwards shall he wash — To signify the universal and perfect purity both of the inwards, or the heart, and of the legs, or ways or actions, which was in Christ, and which should be in all Christians. And he washed not only the parts now mentioned, but all the rest, the trunk of the body, and the shoulders. A sweet savour — Not in itself, for so it rather caused a stink, but as it represented Christ's offering up himself to God as a sweet smelling savour.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
