And will make an offering by fire unto the Lord, a burnt
The first of these respects such offerings by fire, which were not wholly burnt, but part of them were eaten by the priests, ( Deuteronomy 18:1 ) ; and the latter such as were wholly burnt, unless the latter can be thought to be only an explanation of the former:
or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering;
these were peace offerings, some of which were for thanksgiving, and others were either a vow or a freewill offering, as here: see ( Leviticus 7:11 Leviticus 7:12 Leviticus 7:16 ) ;
to make a sweet savour unto the Lord;
for acceptance with him:
of the herd or of the flock;
a bullock of the one, a lamb or kid of the goats of the other; fowls are not mentioned, because burnt offerings of them required no drink offerings F6.
