The Grain Offering...
`And when anyone brings a grain offering to YHWH, his offering is to be of fine flour. And he shall pour oil on it, and put frankincense on it,
and he shall bring it to the sons of Aharon, the priests, and he shall take from it his hand filled with fine flour and oil with all the frankincense. And the priest shall burn it as a remembrance portion on the altar, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to YHWH.
'And the rest of the grain offering is for Aharon and his sons, most set-apart of the offerings to YHWH by fire.
'And when you bring as an offering a grain offering baked in the oven, it is of unleavened cakes of fine flour mixed with oil, or unleavened thin cakes anointed with oil.
'But if your offering is a grain offering on the griddle, it is of fine flour, unleavened, mixed with oil.
'Divide it into bits and pour oil on it, it is a grain offering.
'And if your offering is a grain offering, in a stewing-pot, it is made of fine flour with oil.
'And you shall bring to YHWH the grain offering that is made of these, and shall present it to the priest, and he shall bring it to the altar.
'And the priest shall take from the grain offering a remembrance portion, and burn it on the altar, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to YHWH.
'And the rest of the grain offering is for Aharon and his sons, most set-apart of the offerings to YHWH made by fire.
'No grain offering which you bring to YHWH is made with leaven, for you do not burn any leaven or any honey in an offering to YHWH made by fire.
'Bring them to YHWH as an offering of the first-fruits, but they are not burned on the altar for a sweet fragrance.
'And season with salt every offering of your grain offering, and do not allow the salt of the covenant of your Elohim to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you bring salt.
'And if you bring a grain offering of your first-fruits to YHWH, bring for the grain offering of your first-fruits green heads of grain roasted on the fire, crushed heads of new grain.
'And you shall put oil on it, and lay frankincense on it. It is a grain offering.
'And the priest shall burn the remembrance portion, from its crushed grain and from its oil, with all the frankincense, an offering made by fire to YHWH.
