    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 42:13

    In Leviticus 10:13 it was prescribed that the priests should eat of the sacrifices in the "holy place." This was originally before the altar in the inner court - now separate chambers are assigned, and these become "the holy place" for this purpose. Of the "trespass-offering" and "meat-offering" what was not consumed was eaten Leviticus 7:6, but the "sin-offering" was burned without the camp Ezekiel 43:21. Probably the carcass was brought from the altar to the chamber before being carried out.
