 3:15
 3:16
 3:17
3:16 The priests shall burn them on the altar, to be consumed as a fire offering, an appeasing fragrance.

All the prescribed internal fat thus belongs to God.
Vehiktiram hakohen hamizbechah lechem isheh lere'ach nichoach kol-chelev l'Adonay.

3:17 It shall be an eternal law, for all your generations, that you are not to eat any internal fat [that is normally sacrificed] nor any blood, no matter where you may live.
Chukat olam ledoroteychem bechol moshvoteychem kol-chelev vechol-dam lo tochelu.



Commentary:

normally sacrificed
  (cf. Chullin 93a; Yad, Maakhaloth Assuroth 7:5).
