The Grain Offering
1‘When anyone offers #Lev. 6:14; 9:17; Num. 15:4a grain offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour. And he shall pour oil on it, and put #Lev. 5:11frankincense on it. 2He shall bring it to Aaron’s sons, the priests, one of whom shall take from it his handful of fine flour and oil with all the frankincense. And the priest shall burn #Lev. 2:9; 5:12; 6:15; 24:7; Acts 10:4it as a memorial on the altar, an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the Lord. 3#Lev. 7:9The rest of the grain offering shall be Aaron’s and his #Lev. 6:6; 10:12, 13sons’. #Ex. 29:37; Num. 18:9It is most holy of the offerings to the Lord made by fire.
4‘And if you bring as an offering a grain offering baked in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers #Ex. 29:2anointed with oil. 5But if your offering is a grain offering baked in a pan, it shall be of fine flour, unleavened, mixed with oil. 6You shall break it in pieces and pour oil on it; it is a grain offering.
7‘If your offering is a grain offering baked in a #Lev. 7:9covered pan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil. 8You shall bring the grain offering that is made of these things to the Lord. And when it is presented to the priest, he shall bring it to the altar. 9Then the priest shall take from the grain offering #Lev. 2:2, 16; 5:12; 6:15a memorial portion, and burn it on the altar. It is an #Ex. 29:18offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the Lord. 10And #Lev. 2:3; 6:16what is left of the grain offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’. It is most holy of the offerings to the Lord made by fire.
11‘No grain offering which you bring to the Lord shall be made with #Ex. 23:18; 34:25; Lev. 6:16, 17; (Matt. 16:12; Mark 8:15; Luke 12:1; 1 Cor. 5:8; Gal. 5:9)leaven, for you shall burn no leaven nor any honey in any offering to the Lord made by fire. 12#Ex. 22:29; 34:22; Lev. 23:10, 11, 17, 18As for the offering of the firstfruits, #(Mark 9:49, 50; Col. 4:6)you shall offer them to the Lord, but they shall not be burned on the altar for a sweet aroma. 13And every offering of your grain offering you shall season with salt; you shall not allow #Num. 18:19; 2 Chr. 13:5the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your grain offering. #Ezek. 43:24With all your offerings #Lev. 23:10, 14you shall offer salt.
14‘If you offer a grain offering of your firstfruits to the Lord, you shall offer for the grain offering of your firstfruits green heads of grain roasted on the fire, grain beaten from #2 Kin. 4:42full heads. 15And #Lev. 2:1you shall put oil on it, and lay frankincense on it. It is a grain offering. 16Then the priest shall burn #Lev. 2:2the memorial portion: part of its beaten grain and part of its oil, with all the frankincense, as an offering made by fire to the Lord.
