    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 3:2

    Lay his hand upon the head of his offering - See this rite explained in Exodus 29:10 (note), and Leviticus 1:4 (note). "As the burnt-offering, (Leviticus 1).," says Mr. Ainsworth, "figured our reconciliation to God by the death of Christ, and the meat-offering, (Leviticus 2)., our sanctification in him before God, so this peace-offering signified both Christ's oblation of himself whereby he became our peace and salvation, (Ephesians 2:14-16; Acts 13:47; Hebrews 5:9; Hebrews 9:28), and our oblation of praise, thanksgiving, and prayer unto God."

    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 3:2

    Kill it at the door ... - See Leviticus 1:3. Tradition says that the peace-offerings might be killed in any part of the court.

    Wesley's Notes on Leviticus 3:2

    3:2 At the door - Not on the north - side of the altar, where the burnt - offering was killed, as also the sin - offering, and the trespass - offering, but in the very entrance of the court where the brazen altar stood, which place was not so holy as the other; as appears both because it was more remote from the holy of holies, and because the ashes of the sacrifices were to be laid here. And the reason of this difference is not obscure, both because part of this sacrifice was to be waved by the hands of the offerer, Lev 7:30, who might not come into the court; and because this offering was not so holy as the others, which were to be eaten only by the priest, whereas part of these were eaten by the offerer.
