Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 2:6

_ _ part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon — Pouring oil on bread is a common practice among Eastern people, who are fond of broken bread dipped in oil, butter, and milk. Oil only was used in the meat offerings, and probably for a symbolic reason. It is evident that these meat offerings were previously prepared by the offerer, and when brought, the priest was to take it from his hands and burn a portion on the altar.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 2:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 2:6

In pieces — Because part of it was offered to God, and part given to the priests.
