Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 28:2

_ _ Command the children of Israel, and say unto them — The repetition of several laws formerly enacted, which is made in this chapter, was seasonable and necessary, not only on account of their importance and the frequent neglect of them, but because a new generation had sprung up since their first institution and because the Israelites were about to be settled in the land where those ordinances were to be observed.

_ _ My offering, and my bread — used generally for the appointed offerings, and the import of the prescription is to enforce regularity and care in their observance.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 28:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 28:2

Command the children of Israel — God here repeats some of the former laws about sacrifices, not without great reason, partly because they had been generally discontinued for thirty eight years together; partly because the generation to which the former laws had been given about these things was wholly dead, and it was fit the new generation should be instructed about them, as their parents were; partly to renew their testimonies of God's grace and mercy, notwithstanding their frequent forfeitures thereof by their rebellion: and principally because they were now ready to enter into that land, in which they were obliged to put these things in practice.
