Mr. Harmer supposes that this law refers to the custom of
drying flesh, that had been devoted to a religious purpose,
which is practised among the Mohammedans at the present day,
on the their pilgrimage to Mecca. "It would not have
suited," he observes, "the genius of the Mosaic dispensation,
to have allowed them to have dried the flesh of their peace
offerings, whether in thanksgiving, in consequence of a vow,
or merely voluntary, and have afterwards eaten the flesh very
commonly in a sparing manner, or communicated only some small
portion of it to their particular friends: their peace
offerings were to be eaten, on the contrary, with festivity,
communicated to their friends with liberality, and bestowed
on the poor with great generosity, that they might partake
with them of these sacred repasts with joy before the Lord."
