Feb 7 Lev 6:24-8:29; Psa 24:1-10

Since the eating of the fat of ox, sheep or goat is forbidden (7:22-27), but “may be put to any other use” (verse 24), what do you think some of these “other uses” might be?

7:31-34 not only show that God has made provisions to take care of His servants, but is also part of the reason we know Eli’s sons were sinning against the people and God (1 Samuel).

What does it mean to “consecrate” someone (8:11)?

Psalm 24:1 is a good short example of what scholars call “synonymous parallelism.” This is where the same thing is said in two (or more) different ways. It stresses the importance of what is being said, in this case that EVERYTHING belongs to God! It is also a “double witness,” that it is attests to its own truthfulness.
