Leviticus 6:23  (King James Version)
For every meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burnt: it shall not be eaten.
 


shall be
The meat offering of the people was eaten by the priests, who typically bore and expiated their sins; but as no priest, being a sinner, could make atonement for himself, his meat offering must not be eaten, but wholly burnt on the altar, which was a typical transfer of his guilt to the great antitype who actually bore and expiated it.
