Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 When anyone presents a grain offering to the LORD, the offering must be of choice flour. They must pour oil on it and put frankincense on it, 1 " 'When someone brings a grain offering to the LORD, his offering is to be of fine flour. He is to pour oil on it, put incense on it
2 then bring it to Aaron's sons, the priests. A priest will take a handful of its choice flour and oil, along with all of its frankincense, and will completely burn this token portion on the altar as a food gift of soothing smell to the LORD. 2 and take it to Aaron's sons the priests. The priest shall take a handful of the fine flour and oil, together with all the incense, and burn this as a memorial portion on the altar, an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
3 The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and his sons as a most holy portion from the LORD's food gifts. 3 The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and his sons; it is a most holy part of the offerings made to the LORD by fire.
4 When you present a grain offering baked in an oven, it must be of choice flour: unleavened flatbread mixed with oil or unleavened wafers spread with oil. 4 " 'If you bring a grain offering baked in an oven, it is to consist of fine flour: cakes made without yeast and mixed with oil, or wafers made without yeast and spread with oil.
5 If your offering is grain prepared on a griddle, it must be of choice flour mixed with oil and it must be unleavened. 5 If your grain offering is prepared on a griddle, it is to be made of fine flour mixed with oil, and without yeast.
6 Crumble it into pieces and pour oil on it; it is a grain offering. 6 Crumble it and pour oil on it; it is a grain offering.
7 If your offering is grain prepared in a pan, it must be made of choice flour with oil. 7 If your grain offering is cooked in a pan, it is to be made of fine flour and oil.
8 You will bring the grain offering made in one of these ways to the LORD, presenting it to the priest, who will then bring it to the altar. 8 Bring the grain offering made of these things to the LORD; present it to the priest, who shall take it to the altar.
9 The priest will remove from the grain offering the token portion and completely burn it on the altar as a food gift of soothing smell to the LORD. 9 He shall take out the memorial portion from the grain offering and burn it on the altar as an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
10 The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and his sons as a most holy portion from the LORD's food gifts. 10 The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and his sons; it is a most holy part of the offerings made to the LORD by fire.
11 No grain offering that you give to the LORD can be made with yeast. You must not completely burn any yeast or honey as a food gift for the LORD. 11 " 'Every grain offering you bring to the LORD must be made without yeast, for you are not to burn any yeast or honey in an offering made to the LORD by fire.
12 You can present those as first-choice offerings to the LORD, but they must not be entirely burned up on the altar as a soothing smell. 12 You may bring them to the LORD as an offering of the firstfruits, but they are not to be offered on the altar as a pleasing aroma.
13 You must season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not omit the salt of your God's covenant from your grain offering. You must offer salt with all your offerings. 13 Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings.
14 If you present a grain offering to the LORD from the first produce, you must make such an offering from the crushed heads of newly ripe grain, roasted with fire. 14 " 'If you bring a grain offering of firstfruits to the LORD, offer crushed heads of new grain roasted in the fire.
15 You must put oil and frankincense on it; it is a grain offering. 15 Put oil and incense on it; it is a grain offering.
16 The priest will completely burn the token portion—some of the crushed new grain and oil along with all of the frankincense—as a food gift for the LORD. 16 The priest shall burn the memorial portion of the crushed grain and the oil, together with all the incense, as an offering made to the LORD by fire.
