(Heb. minhah), originally a gift of any kind. This Hebrew word came latterly to denote an "unbloody" sacrifice, as opposed to a "bloody" sacrifice. A "drink-offering" generally accompanied it. The law regarding it is given in Leviticus 2 , and 6:14-23 . It was a recognition of the sovereignty of God and of his bounty in giving all earthly blessings ( 1 Chronicles 29:10-14 ; Deuteronomy 26:5-11 ). It was an offering which took for granted and was based on the offering for sin. It followed the sacrifice of blood. It was presented every day with the burnt-offering ( Exodus 29:40 Exodus 29:41 ), and consisted of flour or of cakes prepared in a special way with oil and frankincense.
