Leviticus 2:6 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 2:6

Thou shalt part it in pieces
This answered to the dividing of the pieces of the burnt offering, ( Leviticus 1:6 Leviticus 1:12 ) and signified the same thing; (See Gill on Leviticus 1:6) (See Gill on Leviticus 1:12) All meat offerings, it is said F12, that were prepared in a vessel, were obliged to be cut to pieces; the meat offering of an Israelite, one (cake) was doubled into two, and two into four, and then divided, each piece was about the quantity of an olive:

and pour oil thereon;
after parted into pieces, (See Gill on Leviticus 2:4)

[it is] a meat offering;
as well as that of fine flour, or that which was baked in an oven.

Leviticus 2:6 In-Context

4 When you present a grain offering baked in the oven, it shall be of choice flour: unleavened cakes mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers spread with oil.
5 If your offering is grain prepared on a griddle, it shall be of choice flour mixed with oil, unleavened;
6 break it in pieces, and pour oil on it; it is a grain offering.
7 If your offering is grain prepared in a pan, it shall be made of choice flour in oil.
8 You shall bring to the Lord the grain offering that is prepared in any of these ways; and when it is presented to the priest, he shall take it to the altar.
