In the communion sacrifice, all the fat—around the intestines, the kidneys, the appendage upon the liver, and the loins, as well as the fatty tail of the sheep—was offered to Jehovah by being burned, made to smoke on the altar. (Leviticus 3:3-16) The fat was considered the richest and best part of an animal. Offering it on the altar symbolized giving the best to Jehovah.
