Grain reduced to the form of meal is spoken of in the time of Abraham (Ge 18:6). As baking was a daily necessity, grain was also ground daily at the mills (Jer 25:10).

And when you prepare a bull, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings to Jehovah, then he shall bring with the bull, a food offering of three-tenth parts of flour mixed with half a hin of oil.

And their drink offerings shall be half a hin of wine to a bull, and the third of a hin to a ram, and a fourth a hin to a lamb. This is the burnt offering of every month throughout the months of the year. And one kid of the goats for a sin offering to Jehovah shall be prepared, besides the continual burnt offering and its drink offering. And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover of Jehovah. And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast. Seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten. In the first day shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no kind of laboring work.
