Leviticus 9:21 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 9:21

And the breasts and the right shoulder
The breasts of the bullock and the ram, and the right shoulders of them both:

Aaron waved for a wave offering before the Lord;
which was given to him as his part of the peace offerings, after they had been thus waved before the Lord; whereby an acknowledgment was made that he was Lord of all, and had a right to all they had; in token of which these parts were given to his priests towards their maintenance:

as Moses commanded;
see ( Exodus 29:27 Exodus 29:28 ) ( Leviticus 7:34-36 ) .

Leviticus 9:21 In-Context

19 But the fat portions of the ox and the ram—the fat tail, the layer of fat, the kidneys and the long lobe of the liver—
20 these they laid on the breasts, and then Aaron burned the fat on the altar.
21 Aaron waved the breasts and the right thigh before the LORD as a wave offering, as Moses commanded.
22 Then Aaron lifted his hands toward the people and blessed them. And having sacrificed the sin offering, the burnt offering and the fellowship offering, he stepped down.
23 Moses and Aaron then went into the tent of meeting. When they came out, they blessed the people; and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people.
