Geneva Study BibleGeneva Study Bible

Verse 1

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.

Verse 2

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.

Verse 3

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.

Verse 5

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.

Verse 12

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.

Verse 13

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, Numbers 18:19 2 Chronicles 13:5 Ezekiel 43:24 or it means a sure and pure covenant.
