Psalms 20:3

Remember all your offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice; Selah.
Read Chapter 20

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
4. "Be mindful of all Thy sacrifice" (ver. 3). Make us mindful of all Thy injuries and despiteful treatment, which Thou hast borne for us. "And be Thy whole burnt offering made fat." And turn the cross, whereon Thou wast wholly offered up to God, into the joy of the resurrection.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Sacrifices. Hebrew mincha, a sacrifice of flour, or unbloody; a figure of the Mass. (Worthington) Minchothec, "thy presents "(Mont.; Haydock) of fruits Fat. Hebrew also, "ashes "by miraculous fire, (Berthier) to testify God's acceptance; as at the sacrifices of Abel, (Haydock) Elias, Leviticus ix. 24., and 3 Kings xviii. 31., and 1 Paralipomenon xxi. 26. God forbade lean victims to be offered, as they might show a want of respect; (Malachi as i. 8.) though he always regarded the heart (Calmet) and faith of the offerer more than the victim, Hebrews xi. 4. (Haydock) Sacrifices were offered before every important enterprize, 1 Kings xiii. 12. (Calmet) Fat here intimates what would be acceptable. (Worthington) (Daniel iii. 40.) (Menochius)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
