(See SACRIFICE.) Eucharistic, indicating that the offerer was already by the atonement at peace with God (Leviticus 3; Leviticus 7:11-34; Leviticus 23:19-20). Spontaneous, "at your own will" (Leviticus 19:5); the only regularly recurring one was that of two firstling lambs at Pentecost. The meat offering on the other hand was regularly ordained.
