Any other fat they might eat; but the fat of these was
sacred, because they were the only animals which were offered
in sacrifice, though many others ranked among the clean
animals as well as these. This prohibition may, however, be
understood of these animals when offered in sacrifice, and
then only in reference to the inward fat, described in ver.
4. Of the fat in any other circumstances, it cannot be
intended, as it was one of the especial blessings which God
gave to his people.--"Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with
fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats,"
were the provision which he graciously bestowed on his
followers. (See De 32:12-14.)
