23 For every meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burnt: it shall not be eaten.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Leviticus 6:23

Commentary on Leviticus 6:14-23

(Read Leviticus 6:14-23)

The law of the burnt-offerings put upon the priests a great deal of care and work; the flesh was wholly burnt, and the priests had nothing but the skin. But most of the meat-offering was their own. It is God's will that his ministers should be provided with what is needful.
