Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 2:3

_ _ the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’ — The circumstance of a portion of it being appropriated to the use of the priests distinguishes this from a burnt offering. They alone were to partake of it within the sacred precincts, as among “the most holy things.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 2:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 2:3

Sons — To be eaten by them, Leviticus 6:16. Most holy — Or such as were to be eaten only by the priests, and that only in the holy place near the altar.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Leviticus 2:3
