Olah – be the best!

Written by d fine

Olah, Olah, Olah Olah
The Chizkuni (1:3) points out that the first korban to be mentioned is the olah. Why is this? He answers that it is simply because the olah is the best korban – first on the grid is normally reserved for the best. In what way is the olah the best korban? For it is completely offered up to HaShem – we don’t eat any of it (unlike other korbanos) – signifying a complete hisbatlus (self-nullification/deference) to HaShem.
