Leviticus 2

Chapter 2

2:1 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.
2:2 And he shall bring it to Aarons 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.
2:3 And the remnant of the meat offering [shall be] Aarons 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.
2:5 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.
2:12 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.
2:13 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.
