Leviticus 2

The Meat Offering
2:1-16, Cf. Lev 6:14-18

2:1 And when any will offer a meat offering unto the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon:

2:2 And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and he shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:

2:3 And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire.

God continues his instructions to Moses about animal sacrifice, saying,

If a man offers a meat offering to me, he shall include flour, oil, and frankincense.

He shall bring it to the priests, who will burn it on the altar for a sweet savor to me.

Whatever is leftover will be for Aaron and his sons.

These burnt offerings are the most holy things to me.

2:4 And if thou bring an oblation of a meat offering baken in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.

If you bring me a meat offering that is baked in the oven, include some unleavened cakes or wafers anointed with oil.

2:5 And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in a pan, it shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

If you bake your meat offering in a pan, use unleavened flour mixed with oil.

2:6 Thou shalt part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon: it is a meat offering.

Cut the meat offering in pieces and pour oil on it.

It is a meat offering.

2:7 And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in the fryingpan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil.

If your meat offering is in a frying pan, use flour and oil.

2:8 And thou shalt bring the meat offering that is made of these things unto the LORD: and when it is presented unto the priest, he shall bring it unto the altar.

Bring the meat offering to me.

The priest will bring it to the altar.

2:9 And the priest shall take from the meat offering a memorial thereof, and shall burn it upon the altar: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

He will take the meat offering and burn it on the altar for a sweet savor to me.

2:10 And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire.

Whatever is leftover is for Aaron and his sons.

Burnt offerings are most holy to me.

2:11 No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the LORD, shall be made with leaven: for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any offering of the LORD made by fire.

Don't make any meat offering with leaven.

Don't burn any leaven or honey. It's a burnt offering.

2:12 As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them unto the LORD: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savour.

Offer your first fruits to me,.

But don't burn them for a sweet savor.

And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.

Season all of your meat offerings with salt.

2:14 And if thou offer a meat offering of thy firstfruits unto the LORD, thou shalt offer for the meat offering of thy firstfruits green ears of corn dried by the fire, even corn beaten out of full ears.

2:15 And thou shalt put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon: it is a meat offering.

2:16 And the priest shall burn the memorial of it, part of the beaten corn thereof, and part of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

If you offer me a meat offing of your first fruits, include some green ears of corn [1], and put oil and frankincense on it.

The priest will burn it. It's a meat offering, an offering made by fire to me.
