This book begins with the laws concerning
sacrifices, of which the most ancient were the burnt-offerings,
about which God gives Moses instructions in this chapter. Orders
are here given how that sort of sacrifice must be managed. I. If it
was a bullock out of the herd, ver.
3-9. II. If it was a sheep or goat, a lamb or kid, out
of the flock, ver. 10-13.
III. If it was a turtle-dove or a young pigeon, ver. 14-17. And whether the offering was
more or less valuable in itself, if it was offered with an upright
heart, according to these laws, it was accepted of God.
