Le 1:15; Ro 4:25; 1Pe 3:18

NET © Notes

tn Heb “he.” The subject (“he”) refers to the priest here, not the offerer who presented the birds to the priest (cf. v. 8a).

sn The action seems to involve both a twisting action, breaking the neck of the bird and severing its vertebrae, as well as pinching or nipping the skin, but in this case not severing the head from the main body (note the rest of this verse).

tn Heb “he shall not divide [it]” (see J. Milgrom, Leviticus [AB], 1:305).
