7:30 With his own hands, he must bring the choice parts presented as a fire offering to God on top of the [animal's] chest . He shall wave the chest in the prescribed motions as a wave offering before God.

7:31 The priest shall then burn the choice parts on the altar. The chest [on the other hand], shall belong to Aaron and his descendants.
Vehiktir hakohen et-hachelev hamizbechah vehayah hechazeh le-Aharon ulevanav.
7:32 The right hind leg of your peace offerings shall [also] be given as an elevated gift to the priest.
Ve'et shok hayamin titnu trumah lakohen mizivchey shalmeychem.


choice parts
  The portions burned on the altar. See Leviticus 3:9.

on top of the animal's chest
  The fat is initially placed on top of the chest. However, when given to the priest, the fat is given first, and the chest is placed on it (Rashi). The hind leg is also placed on the chest (Sifra; Menachoth 62a; Yad, Maaseh HaKorbanoth 9:6). See Leviticus 10:15.

prescribed motions
  See Exodus 29:24. The priest would have his hands under the hands of the owner (Yad, Maaseh HaKorbanoth 9:6).
