Lev 9:10

“burned into smoke.” See commentary on Exodus 29:13.

Lev 9:11

“he burned with fire outside the camp.” There were three altars associated with the Tabernacle and Temple: the golden altar of incense, the bronze altar of sacrifice, and a third altar east of the camp where certain parts of sacrifices were burned, and that altar is closely connected to the death of Christ (see commentary on Heb. 13:10).

Lev 9:12(top)
Lev 9:13

“and he burned them into smoke upon the altar.” The burnt offering was to be completely burnt up except for the skin of the animal, which was given to the priests (Lev. 7:8). This was different from the other animal sacrifices such as the sin offering or fellowship offering because the person who offered that sacrifice got to eat some of the meat.

Lev 9:23

“The glory of Yahweh appeared to all the people.” In this context, “the glory of Yahweh” was the glorious light that surrounded Yahweh. The people saw the glory and knew Yahweh Himself was present with them.

[For more on the glory of God, see commentary on Ezekiel 1:28.]

Lev 9:24

“fire came out from before Yahweh.” This is God lighting the fire upon the altar of sacrifice in front of the Tent of Meeting. God initially lights the fire of the Tent of Meeting which Moses had just built, then the priests are never to let that fire go out. The perpetual fire on the altar is the fire of God. God lit the Tabernacle altar with fire, which is why the Levites were told to keep the fire going and never let it go out (Lev. 6:9, 12, 13). God accepted Gideon’s offering with divine fire (Judg. 6:21). Elijah’s sacrifice was accepted by fire from heaven (1 Kings 18:38), as was David’s (1 Chron. 21:26). God also lit the fire on the altar of the Temple with fire from heaven (2 Chron. 7:1-3). On the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2), the Jewish people who were in the Temple understood all this and had the opportunity to see that God (and His Messiah) accepted the apostles.
