The Grain Offering

1 And when anyone makes a meal offering to the Lord, let his offering be of the best meal, with oil on it and perfume:

1 ‘Now when anyone presents a (A)grain offering as an offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour, and he shall pour oil on it and put frankincense on it.

1 And when any will offer a meat offering unto the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon:

1 “When anyone presents a grain offering(A) as a gift to the Lord, his gift must consist of fine flour.(a)(B) He is to pour olive oil(C) on it, put frankincense on it,(b)(D)

1 "When a person brings an offering that is, a grain offering to the LORD, his offering is to consist of fine flour. He is to pour olive oil mixed with frankincense over it.

2 And let him take it to Aaron's sons, the priests; and having taken in his hand some of the meal and of the oil, with all the perfume, let him give it to the priest to be burned on the altar, as a sign, an offering made by fire, for a sweet smell to the Lord.

2 He shall then bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests; and shall take from it (B)his handful of its fine flour and of its oil with all of its frankincense. And the priest shall offer it up in smoke as its (C)memorial portion on the altar, an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord.

2 And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and 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 memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:

2 and bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests. The priest will take a handful of fine flour and oil from it, along with all its frankincense, and will burn this memorial portion(E) of it on the altar, a fire offering of a pleasing aroma to the Lord.

2 Then he is to bring it to Aaron's sons, the priests. He is to take a handful of fine flour, the olive oil, and all of the frankincense. Then the priest is to offer a memorial offering by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.

3 And the rest of the meal offering will be for Aaron and his sons; it is most holy among the Lord's fire offerings.

3 (D)The remainder of the grain offering belongs to (E)Aaron and his sons: a thing most holy, of the offerings to the Lord by fire.

3 And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire.

3 But the rest of the grain offering will belong to Aaron and his sons; it is the holiest part(F) of the fire offerings to the Lord.
