Leviticus 2



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

(a) Because the burnt offering could not be without the meat offering.

Verse 2
And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and b 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 c memorial of it upon the altar, [to be] an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:

(b) The priest.

(c) To signify that God remembers him that offers.

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

(d) Therefore no one could eat of it but the priest.

Verse 5
And if thy oblation [be] a e meat offering [baken] in a pan, it shall be [of] fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

(e) Which is a gift offered to God to pacify him.

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

(f) That is, fruits which were sweet as honey, ye may offer.

(g) But reserved for the priests.

Verse 13
And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the h covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.

(h) Which they were bound (as by covenant) to use all sacrifices, (Numbers 18:19) ; (2 Chronicles 13:5) ; (Ezekiel 43:24) or it means a sure and pure covenant.
