SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:17 Y la henderá por sus alas, mas no la dividirá en dos; y el sacerdote hará de ella perfume sobre el altar, sobre la leña que está sobre el fuego; y esto será holocausto, ofrenda encendida de olor muy aceptable al SEÑOR.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. And he shall cleave it with the wings thereof , etc.] One wing being on one side, and the other on the other side: but shall not divide it asunder ; the body of the bird, though it was cleaved down in the middle, yet not parted asunder, nor any of its wings separated from it; the Targum of Jonathan paraphrases it, “but shall not separate its wings from it”; this denoted, that though, by the death of Christ, his soul and body were separated from each other, yet the human nature was not separated from his divine Person, the personal union between the two natures still continuing; nor was he divided from his divine Father, though he was forsaken by him, yet still in union with him as the Son of God; nor from the divine Spirit, by which he offered up himself to God, and by which he was quickened; nor from his church and people, for whom he suffered, they being united to him as members to their head: and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire ; in like manner as the ox, sheep, or goat were burnt: according to the Misnah, the priest went up the ascent (of the altar) and turned round about the circuit; when he came to the southeast horn, he cut its head (or nipped it) with his nail, over against its neck, and divided it, and squeezed out its blood by the wall of the altar, and turned the part nipped to the altar, and struck it at it, and rubbed it with salt, and cast it upon the fires; then he went to the body and removed the crop and its feathers (or dung) and the entrails that came out along with it, and threw them into the place of ashes; he cleaved but did not divide asunder, but if he divided it was right, then he rubbed it with salt, and cast it upon the fires f40 : it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord ; (see Gill on “ Leviticus 1:9”) so with the Heathens, to the gods of the air they sacrificed fowls for burnt offerings f41 .
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-17 - Those who could not offer a bullock, were to bring a sheep or a goat and those who were not able to do that, were accepted of God, if the brought a turtle-dove, or a pigeon. Those creatures were chosen for sacrifice which were mild, and gentle, and harmless; to show the innocence and meekness that were in Christ, and that should be in Christians. The offering of the poor was as typical of Christ' atonement as the more costly sacrifices, and expressed as full repentance, faith, and devotedness to God. We have no excuse, if we refuse the pleasant and reasonable service now required. But we can n more offer the sacrifice of a broken heart, or of praise an thanksgiving, than an Israelite could offer a bullock or a goat, excep as God hath first given to us. The more we do in the Lord's service the greater are our obligations to him, for the will, for the ability and opportunity. In many things God leaves us to fix what shall be spent in his service, whether of our time or our substance; yet wher God's providence has put much into a man's power, scanty offerings wil not be accepted, for they are not proper expressions of a willing mind Let us be devoted in body and soul to his service, whatever he may cal us to give, venture, do, or suffer for his sake __________________________________________________________________
