John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 18:7

The altar — Of burnt — offering. Within the veil — This phrase here comprehends both the holy and the most holy place. As a gift which I have freely conferred upon you, and upon you alone; and therefore let no man henceforth dare either to charge you with arrogance in appropriating this to yourselves, or to invade your office.
