Laws for Grain Offerings

1 " 'When a person brings a grain offering to Yahweh, his offering must be finely milled flour, and he must pour out oil on it and place frankincense on it.
2 And he shall bring it to the sons of Aaron, the priests, and he shall take {his handful from its finely milled flour} and from its oil in addition to all its frankincense. The priest shall turn its token portion into smoke on the altar [as] an offering made [by] fire, [as] an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh.
3 The remainder of the grain [offering] {belongs to} Aaron and to his sons--{it is a most holy thing} from the offerings made by fire for Yahweh.
4 " 'But if you bring a grain offering of something oven-baked, [it must be of] finely milled flour [as] ring-shaped unleavened bread [mixed] with oil or wafers of unleavened bread smeared with oil.
5 If your offering [is] a [grain] offering [baked] on a flat baking pan, it must be finely milled flour, unleavened bread mixed with oil;
6 break it into pieces and pour out oil on it; it [is] a grain [offering].
7 " 'If your offering [is] a grain [offering] [prepared in] a cooking pan, it must be [with] finely milled flour in oil.
8 And you shall bring the grain [offering] that is made from these things to Yahweh, and [the offerer] shall bring it to the priest, and he shall bring it to the altar.
9 And the priest shall take away from the grain [offering] its token portion, and he shall turn [it] into smoke on the altar [as] an offering made [by] fire, [as] an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh.
10 And the remainder of the grain [offering] {belongs to} Aaron and to his sons--{it is a most holy thing} from the offerings made by fire for Yahweh.
11 " 'Every grain [offering] you bring to Yahweh must not be made of yeasted food, because you must not turn into smoke any yeast or any honey from an offering made by fire for Yahweh.
12 [As] an offering of [the] choicest portion, you may bring them to Yahweh, but they must not be offered on the altar [as] an appeasing fragrance.
13 Also all of your grain offerings you must season with salt; you must not omit the salt of your God's covenant from your offering.
14 " 'And if you bring to Yahweh a grain [offering] of firstfruits, you must bring an ear of new grain roasted by fire, coarsely crushed ripe grain, [as] the grain [offering] of your firstfruits.
15 And you shall put oil on it and place frankincense on it; it [is] a grain [offering].
16 The priest shall turn into smoke its token portion from its coarsely crushed grain together with all of its frankincense--[it is] an offering made by fire for Yahweh.'"
