Ezekiel 46:14

Ezekiel 46:14

And thou shalt prepare a meat offering for morning
That is, for the daily burnt offering to go along with it; prayer and thanksgiving for our temporal and spiritual food, which should be done every morning: the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of an hin of oil, to
temper with the fine flour;
to mix with it, and moisten it: under the law, only a tenth part of an ephah of fine flour, and a fourth part of a hin of oil, were ordered to make this meat offering of, ( Exodus 29:40 ) , wherefore Kimchi observes, this is a new thing in time to come: the reason of it is this; to show us, that as the blessings of grace abound under the Gospel dispensation, we should abound in our thanksgiving to God: a meat offering, continually, by a perpetual ordinance unto the Lord;
these sorts of sacrifices are never to cease; and so the Jews F14 themselves say,

``in future time, or in the days of the Messiah, all sacrifices shall cease; but the sacrifice of praise shall not cease.''
