    Before they burnt the fat - They would serve themselves before God was served! This was iniquity and arrogance of the first magnitude.

    He will not have sodden flesh - He chooses roast meat, not boiled; and if they had it in the pot before the servant came, he took it out that it might be roasted.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Samuel 2:15

    2:15 The fat - And the other parts to be burnt with it. So this was all additional injury; for they took such parts as they best liked whilst it was raw.
