    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 1:8

    The priests - shall lay the parts - The sacrifice was divided according to its larger joints.

    1. After its blood was poured out, and the skin removed, the head was cut off.

    2. They then opened it and took out the omentum, or caul, that invests the intestines.

    3. They took out the intestines with the mesentery, and washed them well, as also the fat.

    4. They then placed the four quarters upon the altar, covered them with the fat, laid the remains of the intestines upon them, and then laid the head above all.

    5. The sacred fire was then applied, and the whole mass was consumed. This was the holocaust, or complete burnt-offering.
