V. 1-7 Yesterday's subject continues. As well as restoring the damage done to a neighbor a fifth more would have to be added. if these people had to be careful, how much more careful should we believers be! 2 Peter 3:1111Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, (2 Peter 3:11), 1 Peter 1:1515But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; (1 Peter 1:15).
V. 8-13 Now we return to the Burnt offering. These: laws: describe how the offering was carried out. In this offering, the entire sacrifice was burnt. A picture of Christ giving Himself entirely up to God. There are two main points (1) the fire was never to go out. God never forgets the work which Christ did on the cross, even though His people may be asleep and don't think of the fire burning. (2) The ashes always are a reminder that fire has been there. The fire of judgment (punishment) fell upon our blessed Lord Jesus, leaving nothing but the ashes the remembrance of His death.
