Additional Grain Offering Regulations

11 No meal offering which you give to the Lord is to be made with leaven; no leaven or honey is to be burned as an offering made by fire to the Lord. 12 You may give them as an offering of first-fruits to the Lord, but they are not to go up as a sweet smell on the altar. 13 And every meal offering is to be salted with salt; your meal offering is not to be without the salt of the agreement of your God: with all your offerings give salt.
