138 - EATING THE MEAL OFFERING OF A PRIEST


Leviticus 6:16 -- “And the remainder of it Aaron and his sons shall eat; with unleavened bread it shall be eaten in a holy place; in the court of the tabernacle of meeting they shall eat it.”

“The meal offering of the priest was entirely burnt, because the priest offered his oblation himself, and if he were to offer it, and at the same time eat it, it would appear as if he had not performed any service. For nothing of the ordinary meal offering of any person was offered upon the Altar except the frankincense and a handful of the flour or cake; and if, in addition to the fact that the offering was small, he who offered it were to eat it himself, nothing of a sacrificial service would be noticed. It is therefore entirely burnt.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 46
