Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 3:2

_ _ he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering — Having performed this significant act, he killed it before the door of the tabernacle, and the priests sprinkled the blood round about upon the altar.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 3:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 3:2

At the door — Not on the north — side of the altar, where the burnt — offering was killed, as also the sin — offering, and the trespass — offering, but in the very entrance of the court where the brazen altar stood, which place was not so holy as the other; as appears both because it was more remote from the holy of holies, and because the ashes of the sacrifices were to be laid here. And the reason of this difference is not obscure, both because part of this sacrifice was to be waved by the hands of the offerer, Leviticus 7:30, who might not come into the court; and because this offering was not so holy as the others, which were to be eaten only by the priest, whereas part of these were eaten by the offerer.
