Every Grain Offering To JEHOVAH Must Be Made Without Yeast Or Honey




Leviticus 2:1-16 NIV






The Grain Offering




1“ ‘When anyone brings a grain offering To The LORD, their offering is to be of the finest flour.






They are to pour olive oil on it, put incense on it 2and take it to Aaron’s sons the priests. The priest shall take a handful of the flour and oil, together with all the incense, and burn this as a memoriala portion on the altar, a food offering, an aroma pleasing To The LORD. 3The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and his sons; it is a most holy part of the food offerings presented To The LORD.






4“ ‘If you bring a grain offering baked in an oven, it is to consist of the finest flour: either thick loaves made without yeast and with olive oil mixed in or thin loaves made without yeast 







and brushed with olive oil. 5If your grain offering is prepared on a griddle, it is to be made of the finest flour mixed with oil, and without yeast.6Crumble it and pour oil on it; it is a grain offering. 7If your grain offering is cooked in a pan, it is to be made of the finest flour and some olive oil. 8Bring the grain offering made of these things To The LORD; present it to the priest, who shall take it to the altar. 9He shall take out the memorial portion from the grain offering and burn it on the altar as a food offering, an aroma pleasing To The LORD. 10The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and his sons; it is a most holy part of the food offerings presented To 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 a food offering presented To The LORD. 12You 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. 


 13Season 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 bring a grain offering of firstfruits To The LORD, offer crushed heads of new grain roasted in the fire.






15Put oil and incense on it; it is a grain offering. 16The priest shall burn the memorial portion of the crushed grain and the oil, together with all the incense, as a food offering presented To The LORD.
