Exodus 29:27  (King James Version)
And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and the shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and which is heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons:
 


the breast
Leviticus 7:31-34 ; 8:29 9:21 10:15 Numbers 6:20 ; Numbers 18:11 Numbers 18:18 Numbers 18:19 Deuteronomy 18:3

the wave offering
The wave offering and heave offering are thus distinguished by the Jewish writers: the former, called {tenoophah,} from {nooph,} to move, toss, was waved horizontally towards the
four cardinal points, to signify that He to whom it was consecrated was the Lord of the whole earth; the latter, called {teroomah,} from room, to be elevated, was lifted perpendicularly upward and downward, in token of its being devoted to the God of heaven.* the ram of the consecration.
{Ail milluim,} literally, "the ram of filling;" so called, according to some, because at the consecration of the priests, certain pieces of the sacrifice were put into their hands (ver. 24;) on which account their consecration itself is
called "filling their hands" (ch. 28:41 .) Rabbi Solomon gives a different reason for the ram being so called, from {malai,} to be full, complete; because the sacrifice completed
the consecration, and thereupon the priests were fully invested in their office Accordingly, the LXX. render it by [teleiosis,] consummation.
