What does Leviticus 7:18 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Leviticus 7:18

And if any of the flesh of his peace offerings be eaten at
all on the third day
Any part of it, even the least:

it shall not be accepted;
as a sacrifice well pleasing to God; he will take no delight in it, or express any satisfaction therein; but, on the contrary, reject it with abhorrence:

neither shall it be imputed to him that offereth it;
the Targum of Jonathan adds, for merit or righteousness; it shall not be accounted a righteous action, or the offerer receive any benefit by it:

it shall be an abomination;
to God, the flesh being kept so long, through a sordid and niggardly disposition:

and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity;
it shall not be forgiven him; he shall bear the punishment of it.
