but without tearing it apart. Then he will burn it as a burnt offering on
the wood burning on the altar. It is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to
the Lord.
“When you present grain as an offering to the Lord, the offering must
consist of choice flour. You are to pour olive oil on it, sprinkle it with frankincense, and bring it to Aaron’s sons, the priests. The priest will scoop out a
handful of the flour moistened with oil, together with all the frankincense,
and burn this representative portion on the altar. It is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord. The rest of the grain offering will then be given to
Aaron and his sons. This offering will be considered a most holy part of
the special gifts presented to the Lord.
“If your offering is a grain offering baked in an oven, it must be made
of choice flour, but without any yeast. It may be presented in the form of
thin cakes mixed with olive oil or wafers spread with olive oil. If your grain
offering is cooked on a griddle, it must be made of choice flour mixed with
olive oil but without any yeast. Break it in pieces and pour olive oil on it;
it is a grain offering. If your grain offering is prepared in a pan, it must be
made of choice flour and olive oil.
“No matter how a grain offering for the Lord has been prepared, bring
it to the priest, who will present it at the altar. The priest will take a representative portion of the grain offering and burn it on the altar. It is a
special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord. The rest of the grain offering
will then be given to Aaron and his sons as their food. This offering will
be considered a most holy part of the special gifts presented to the Lord.
“Do not use yeast in preparing any of the grain offerings you present
to the Lord, because no yeast or honey may be burned as a special gift
presented to the Lord. You may add yeast and honey to an offering of the
first crops of your harvest, but these must never be offered on the altar
as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. Season all your grain offerings with salt
to remind you of God’s eternal covenant. Never forget to add salt to your
grain offerings.
“If you present a grain offering to the Lord from the first portion of
your harvest, bring fresh grain that is coarsely ground and roasted on a fire.
Put olive oil on this grain offering, and sprinkle it with frankincense. The
priest will take a representative portion of the grain moistened with oil,
together with all the frankincense, and burn it as a special gift presented
to the Lord.
