  61. The Hebrews distinguished between the suet or pure fat of an animal and the fat which was intermixed with the lean. ( Nehemiah 8:10 ) Certain restrictions were imposed upon them in reference to the former; some parts of the suet, viz., about the stomach, the entrails, the kidneys, and the tail of a sheep, which grows to an excessive size in many eastern countries, and produces a large quantity of rich fat, were forbidden to be eaten in the case of animals offered to Jehovah in sacrifice. ( Leviticus 3:3 Leviticus 3:9 Leviticus 3:17 ; Leviticus 7:3 Leviticus 7:23 ) The ground of the prohibition was that the fat was the richest part of the animal, and therefore belonged to him. ( Leviticus 3:16 ) The burning of the fat of sacrifices was particularly specified in each kind of offering. biblestudytools.com
  62. i.e. VAT, the word employed in the Authorized Version to translate the Hebrew term yekeb , in ( Joel 2:24 ; 3:13 ) The word commonly used for yekeb is "winepress" or "winefat," and once "pressfat." ( Haggai 2:16 ) The "vats" appear to have been excavated out of the native rock of the hills on which the vineyards lay. biblestudytools.com

  65. (Heb. heleb) denotes the richest part of the animal, or the fattest of the flock, in the account of Abel's sacrifice ( Genesis 4:4 ). It sometimes denotes the best of any production ( Genesis 45:18 ; Numbers 18:12 ; Psalms 81:16 ; 147:47 ). The fat of sacrifices was to be burned ( Leviticus 3:9-11 ; 4:8 ; 7:3 ; 8:25 ; Numbers 18:17 . Compare Exodus 29:13-22 ; Leviticus 3:3-5 ). It is used figuratively for a dull, stupid state of mind ( Psalms 17:10 ). In Joel 2:24 the word is equivalent to "vat," a vessel. The hebrew word here thus rendered is elsewhere rendered "wine-fat" and "press-fat" ( Haggai 2:16 ; Isaiah 63:2 ). biblestudytools.com

  68. A soft, white, animal substance; inodorous; insipid; oily; inflammable, easy to melt; spoiling in the air, and becoming rancid by union with oxygen: almost insoluble in alcohol; insoluble in water; soluble in fixed oils. Fat is formed of the immediate principles, stearin, margarin, and olein or elain, all of which are regarded as salts composed of stearic, margaric and oleic acids, and a common base, to which, from its sweetish taste, the name Glycerin Glycerina, Glycerinum, (F.) Glycerine has been given. To these are, almost always, joined an odorous and a colouring principle. GLYCERIN, Glycerina, has been introduced into the last edition of the Pharmacopoeia of the U. S. (1851), in which it is directed to be prepared as follows: - Lead plaster, recently prepared and yet fluid; boiling water, of each a gallon; mix: stir briskly for 15 minutes; allow it to cool and pour off the liquid. Evaporate until it has the s. g. 1.15, and pass slowly through it a current of sulpho-hydrio acid until a black precipitate is no longer thrown down. Filter and boil until the sulpho-hydric acid is driven off, and evaporate the liquid until it ceases to lose weight. Glycerin is a colourless or straw-coloured syrupy fluid; s. g. 1.25. It is soluble in water and iu alcohol, but not in ether. It is used in the form of lotion, composed of half an ounce to ten fluidounces of water, in cutaneous diseases, as psoriasis, pityriasis, lepra and ichthyosis. It forms a kind of varnish, and might be useful in cases of burns. Fat is found in a number of animal tissues, and is very abundant in the neighborhood of the kidneys and in the epiploon. It is generally fluid in the cetacea; soft, and of a strong smell in the carnivora; solid, and inodorous in the ruminating animal; white, and abundant in young animals; and yellowish in old. It generally forms about a twentieth part of the weight of the human body. The fat, considered physiologically, has, for its function, to protect the organs; maintain their temperature; and to serve for nutrition in case of need; as is observed in torpid animals.
