Leviticus 2:1-16

2  “And when a person presents the oblation of a grain-offering to Jehovah, his oblation shall be farina, and he shall pour oil on it and put frankincense on it 2  and bring it to Aaron’s sons, the priests; and he shall clutch up off it all his hand can clutch of the farina and the oil, with all the frankincense, and the priest shall burn at the altar the memorial of it as a fire-offering, a genial odor to Jehovah; 3  and the remainder of the grain-offering belongs to Aaron and his sons as holiest of the holy of Jehovah’s fire-offerings. 4  “And when you present the oblation of a grain-offering baked in a baking-crock, farina in ritual-matzoth shortened with oil and in sheet matzoth rubbed over with oil. 5  And if your oblation is a grain-offering on a griddle, it shall be farina stirred up with oil to a matzah: 6  break it into bits and pour oil over it, it is a grain-offering. 7  And if your oblation is a grain-offering in a batter-pan, you shall do it in farina with oil. 8  And you shall bring the grain-offering done in any of these ways to Jehovah and present it to the priest, and he shall bring it up to the altar. 9  And the priest shall take up out of the oblation the memorial of it and burn it at the altar as a fire-offering, a genial odor to Jehovah; 10  and the remainder of the oblation belongs to Aaron and his sons as holiest of the holy of Jehovah’s fire-offerings. 11  “Any grain-offering that you present to Jehovah you shall not make raised, because you are not to bring as a fire-offering to Jehovah any yeast or honey whatever: 12  you are to present them to Jehovah as handsel-oblation, but not to offer them on the altar for a genial odor. 13  And all your oblations of grain-offerings you shall salt with salt, and not disuse from your grain-offerings the salt of your God’s covenant; on all your oblations you shall present salt. 14  “And if you present a grain-offering of firstfruits to Jehovah it shall be green ears roasted by fire, pounded green kernels, that you present as your grain-offering of firstfruits; 15  and you shall put oil on it and lay frankincense on it—it is a grain-offering— 16  and the priest shall burn the memorial of it, some of the kernels and oil of it with all its frankincense, as a fire-offering to Jehovah.
