Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 7:8

_ _ the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered — All the flesh and the fat of the burnt offerings being consumed, nothing remained to the priest but the skin. It has been thought that this was a patriarchal usage, incorporated with the Mosaic law, and that the right of the sacrificer to the skin of the victim was transmitted from the example of Adam (see on Genesis 3:21).
