Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 2:2

_ _ shall burn the memorial — rather, “for a memorial”; that is, a part of it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 2:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 2:2

He shall take — That priest to whom he brought it, and who is appointed to offer it. The memorial — That part thus selected and offered; which is called a memorial, either to the offerer, who by offering this part is minded, that the whole of that he brought, and of all which he hath of that kind, is God's to whom this part was paid as an acknowledgment. Or to God, whom (to speak after the manner of men) this did put in mind of his gracious covenant and promises of favour, and acceptance of the offerer and his offering. A sweet savour unto the Lord — And so are our spiritual offerings, which are made by the fire of holy love, particularly that of almsgiving. With such sacrifices God is well — pleased.
