Meat-offering. R. V. "meal-offering." Leviticus 2:1-16 and Leviticus 6:14-23. David gives its meaning. 1 Chronicles 29:10-21. It was a meal-offering. This involves neither of the main ideas of sacrifice—the atonement for sin and self-dedication to God. It takes them for granted, and is based on them. Bather it expresses gratitude and love to God as the giver of all. Accordingly the meal-offering, properly so called, was introduced by the sin-offering, which represented the idea atonement, and to have formed an appendage to the burnt-offering, which represented the sacrifice. The unbloody offerings offered alone did not properly belong to the regular meal-offering; they were usually substitutes for other offerings. Comp. Leviticus 5:11; Numbers 5:16.
