ob - lā´shun : In Leviticus and Numbers, the King James Version occasionally uses "oblation," but generally "offering," as a rendering of קרבּן , ḳorbān - a general term for all kinds of offering, but used only in Ezekiel, Leviticus and Numbers. the Revised Version (British and American) renders consistently "oblation." In Ezekiel (also Isaiah 40:20 ), "oblation" renders תּרוּמה , terūmāh , generally translated "heave offering." In some cases (e.g. Isaiah 1:13 ; Daniel 9:21 ) "oblation" in the King James Version corresponds to מנחה , minḥāh , the ordinary word for "gift," in the Priestly Code (P) "grain offering." See SACRIFICE .
