THE MORIG AD. EVEIG SACRIFICE. BY REV. C. SIMEO, M.A. umb, xxviii. 3— 10. Thou shalt say unto them, This is the offering made hji fire which ye shall offer unto the Lord; two Uimbs of Ihe first year untlinul spot, day by day, for a continual burnt-offering. Tlie one lamb shalt t/iou offer in the morning, and thc^olher lamb shalt thou offer at even; and a tenth part of an ephah of four for a meat-offering, mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil. It is 128.] MORIG AD EVEIG SACRIFICE. 189 is a continual burnt -offering, which was ordained in mount Sinai for a sweet savour, a sacrijice made hy fire unto -.the Lord. And the drink-offering thereof shall be the fourth part of an hin for the one lamb : in the holy place shall thou cause the strong tvine to be poured out unto the Lord for a drink-off^ering. And the other lamb shah thou offer at even : as the meat-offering of the 7norning, and as the drink- offering thereof, thou shalt offer it, a sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord. And on the sabbath-day, two lambs of the frst year without spot, and two tenth-deals of four for a meat-offering, mingled with oil, and the drink-offering thereof. This is the burnt-offering of every sabbath, besides the continual burnt-offering, and his drink- offering. THIS burnt-ofFering, our text informs us, " was ordained in Mount Sinai/' nearly forty years before the period at which it was again enjoined". Com- mentators are not agreed respecting the reason of its being again so circumstantially repeated. Some
 
have thought that the observance of this ordinance had been entirely neglected in the wilderness ; and that from hence arose the necessity of enjoining it again, in order that it might not be neglected when they should come into the land of Canaan. or is this opinion without some foundation : for the prophet Amos, and after him the first martyr, Ste- phen, complains of the most grievous neglect of duty among the Israelites in the wilderness, and of their worshipping idols in preference to the living God : " It is witten in the book of the Prophets, says Stephen, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness ? Yea, ye took up the ta- bernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Rem- phan, figures which ye made to worship them : and I will carry you av^^ay beyond Babylon''." But it is altogether incredible that Moses should have suf- fered such a public dereliction of duty as this : and, if he had, it is impossible that God should have spoken of him as a servant '' faithful in all his house." We apprehend therefore that it was not of these sacrifices which depended upon Aaron and Moses, but » Exod, xxix. 38 — 41. " Am. v. 25—27. Acts vii. 42, 43. 140 UAIBERS, XXVIII. 3 10. [1^8. but of other sacrifices which depended more upon the people, and which they had neglected to offer on the proper occasions, that the prophet speaks: and consequently, that there was some other reason for renewing the appointment of the ordinance before us. The true reason seems to be, that, as all who had come out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, had perished in the wilderness, and as
 
Aaron was dead, and Moses himself had but two or three months to live, it was desirable that this new generation should have this ordinance enjoined from God himself, that they might be duly impressed with a sense of its great importance. The repetition of it moreover is of use to us, inasmuch as it shews us, that some deep mystery must be contained in it, and that much valuable instruction is to be de- rived from it. Let us then consider, I. The matter of which this offering consisted — There two very distinct offerings united ; 1. The lamb— [This was to be " of the first year," and " without spot;" and it was to be slain, and then consumed by fire upon the altar, as " a sacrifice of a sweet savour unto the Lord." Can any one doubt what this imported ? Can any one fail to see in this a type of the Lord Jesus Christ, whom one Apostle speaks of as " a lamb without blemish, and without spot*^;" and another Apostle represents as "the Lamb," even "the Lamb that was slain '^," to whom all the glorified Saints in heaven ascribe the honour of their salvation, saying, " Salvation to our God which sittetli upon the throne, and unto theLamu*!" It is worthy of observation, that the very first sacrifices of which any mention is made in Scripture, were lambs. It was " of the firstlings of his flock" that Abel offered; and by that offering he obtained very peculiar tokens of God's favour and acceptance ^ And there is reason to believe, that the skins, with which Adam and Eve were, by God's appointment, clothed immcdi- 'atcly after the fall, were of lambs which they had previously of- fered in sacrifice*^: and in reference to this early appointment, as well as to the everlasting decrees of God, the Lord Jesus is called " The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world''." We shall not detain you in order to point out the correspon- dence between Christ and these spotless lambs, in the perfec- tion ] ' P^'t- '• IP- " Rev. v. 8, 9. ' Rev. vii. 10.
