Leviticus 2:12 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 2:12

As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer
them unto the Lord
Or "in" or "with the oblation", as some render it; that is, along with the oblation of the firstfruits leaven and honey might be offered: the Arabic version is very express, "but for a sacrifice of firstfruits ye" shall offer both to God; as they might be, as before observed; so the Targum of Jonathan,

``for the leavened bread of the firstfruits shall be offered, and dates in the time of the firstfruits; the fruits with their honey shall be offered, and the priest shall eat them:''

but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savour;
which they could not make, and besides were to be the portion of the priests.

Leviticus 2:12 In-Context

10 And what is left of the grain offering shall be for Aaron and his sons; it is a most holy part of the offerings by fire to the Lord.
11 No grain offering that you bring to the Lord shall be made with leaven, for you must not turn any leaven or honey into smoke as an offering by fire to the Lord.
12 You may bring them to the Lord as an offering of choice products, but they shall not be offered on the altar for a pleasing odor.
13 You shall not omit from your grain offerings the salt of the covenant with your God; with all your offerings you shall offer salt.
14 If you bring a grain offering of first fruits to the Lord, you shall bring as the grain offering of your first fruits coarse new grain from fresh ears, parched with fire.
