Leviticus Chapter 2

Leviticus 2:1

lev 2:1

And when any will offer a (a) meat offering unto the LORD, his offering shall be [of] fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon:

(a) Because the burnt offering could not be without the meat offering.

Leviticus 2:2

lev 2:2

And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and (b) he shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the (c) memorial of it upon the altar, [to be] an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:

(b) The priest.

(c) To signify that God remembers him that offers.

Leviticus 2:3

lev 2:3

And the remnant of the meat offering [shall be] Aaron's and his sons': [it is] a thing (d) most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire.

(d) Therefore no one could eat of it but the priest.

Leviticus 2:5

lev 2:5

And if thy oblation [be] a (e) meat offering [baken] in a pan, it shall be [of] fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

(e) Which is a gift offered to God to pacify him.

Leviticus 2:12

lev 2:12

As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer (f) them unto the LORD: but they shall not be burnt (g) on the altar for a sweet savour.

(f) That is, fruits which were sweet as honey, ye may offer.

(g) But reserved for the priests.

Leviticus 2:13

lev 2:13

And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the (h) covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.

(h) Which they were bound (as by covenant) to use all sacrifices, (Num 18:19; Ch2 13:5; Eze 43:24) or it means a sure and pure covenant.
