Leviticus - Chapter 07

Bible Study Notes

Leviticus 7:1-10 Law of Guilt Offering: It is most holy. The male among the priests may eat it in a holy place. Same law as the sin offering.

Notes: These passages focus on how the sacrifices are to be offered.

Leviticus 7:11-18 Law of Peace Offering: He shall also bring some loaves of leavened bread. One loaf each goes to the Lord. The priest shall eat the rest with none left until morning. What is left by the third day of the sacrifice shall be burned. If not, then it is tainted and will do no good.

Notes: A grain offering and a peace offering can be combined.

Leviticus 7:19-21 Flesh can’t be eaten of the sacrifice if it touches anything unclean, but shall be burned. A person who is unclean cannot eat the sacrifice or they will be cut off from the assembly.

Notes: cut off from his people: Some understand this to mean that the person is isolated from his relatives and family. Others, however, note that it is associated elsewhere with death and thus conclude that it refers to the premature death of the sinner.

Leviticus 7:22-27 No fat or blood from a sacrifice may be eaten or they will be cut off from the assembly.

Leviticus 7:28-38 The person bringing the sacrifice shall come from their own hands. The breast shall be used as a wave offering and as food for the priests along with the right thigh.

Notes: Wave Offering: This was a symbolic act indicating the offering was for the Lord. Portions of the things offered were literally waved in the air before the Lord.
