"Every native-born Israelite is to follow this procedure when he brings a Fire-Gift as a pleasing fragrance to God.
In future generations, when a foreigner or visitor living at length among you presents a Fire-Gift as a pleasing fragrance to God, the same procedures must be followed.

The same laws and regulations apply to both you and the foreigner who lives with you."

and you eat the food of that country, set some aside as an offering for God.
From the first batch of bread dough make a round loaf for an offering - an offering from the threshing floor.
