Leviticus 7:32

Leviticus 7:32

And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest [for]
an heave offering
Whether of an ox or a cow, a lamb or a goat:

of the sacrifices of your peace offerings;
which were of either of these creatures; the Targum of Jonathan paraphrases it,

``the right arm from the shoulder to the elbow.''

The breast being the seat of wisdom, and the shoulder of strength, some think denote Christ as the wisdom and power of God unto his people, his priests, who have all their knowledge and strength from him, and who bears them on his heart and on his shoulder.
