Leviticus 6* Concerning trespasses against our neighbour. (1-7) Concerningthe burnt-offering. (8-13) Concerning the meat-offering. (14-23)Concerning the sin-offering. (24-30)1-7 Though all the instances relate to our neighbour, yet it iscalled a trespass against the Lord. Though the person injured bemean, and even despicable, yet the injury reflects upon that Godwho has made the command of loving our neighbour next to that ofloving himself. Human laws make a difference as to punishments;but all methods of doing wrong to others, are alike violationsof the Divine law, even keeping what is found, when the ownercan be discovered. Frauds are generally accompanied with lies,often with false oaths. If the offender would escape thevengeance of God, he must make ample restitution, according tohis power, and seek forgiveness by faith in that one Offeringwhich taketh away the sin of the world. The trespasses herementioned, still are trespasses against the law of Christ, whichinsists as much upon justice and truth, as the law of nature, orthe law of Moses. 8-13 The daily sacrifice of a lamb is chiefly referred to. Thepriest must take care of the fire upon the altar. The first fireupon the altar came from heaven, ch. #9:24|; by keeping that upcontinually, all their sacrifices might be said to be consumedwith the fire from heaven, in token of God's acceptance. Thusshould the fire of our holy affections, the exercise of ourfaith and love, of prayer and praise, be without ceasing. 14-23 The law of the burnt-offerings put upon the priests agreat deal of care and work; the flesh was wholly burnt, and thepriests had nothing but the skin. But most of the meat-offeringwas their own. It is God's will that his ministers should beprovided with what is needful. 24-30 The blood of the sin-offering was to be washed out of theclothes on which it should happen to be sprinkled, whichsignified the regard we ought to have to the blood of Christ,not counting it a common thing. The vessel in which the flesh ofthe sin-offering was boiled must be broken, if it were anearthen one; but if a brazen one, well washed. This showed thatthe defilement was not wholly taken away by the offering; butthe blood of Christ thoroughly cleanses from all sin. All theserules set forth the polluting nature of sin, and the removal ofguilt from the sinner to the sacrifice. Behold and wonder atChrist's love, in that he was content to be made a sin-offeringfor us, and so to procure our pardon for continual sins andfailings. He that knew no sin was made sin (that is, asin-offering) for us, #2Co 5:21|. Hence we have pardon, and notonly pardon, but power also, against sin, #Ro 8:3|.
