1 And when a soul will offer an offering, a gift·​·offering to Jehovah, his offering shall be of flour; and he shall pour oil on it, and put frankincense on it;

2 and he shall bring it to the sons of Aaron, the priests; and he shall take·​·a·​·handful from there, his full handful from its flour, and from its oil, on all its frankincense; and the priest shall burn·​·as·​·incense the memorial of it upon the altar, a fire·​·offering, a restful smell to Jehovah:

3 and the remnant of the gift·​·offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; it is a holy of holies of the fire·​·offerings of Jehovah.

4 And if thou offer an offering of a gift·​·offering baked in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of flour mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.

5 And if thine offering be a gift·​·offering on a griddle, it shall be unleavened flour, mixed with oil.

6 Thou shalt morsel· it ·out in morsels, and pour oil on it; it is a gift·​·offering.

7 And if thine offering be a gift·​·offering of the cooking·​·pot, it shall be made of flour with oil.

8 And thou shalt bring the gift·​·offering that is made of these things to Jehovah; and when it is offered to the priest, he shall present it to the altar.

9 And the priest shall lift·​·high from the gift·​·offering a memorial of it, and shall burn· it ·as·​·incense upon the altar; it is a fire·​·offering, a restful smell to Jehovah.

10 And the remainder of the gift·​·offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; it is a holy of holies of the fire·​·offerings of Jehovah.

11 All the gift·​·offering, which you shall offer to Jehovah, shall not be made with leaven; for you shall not burn·​·for·​·incense any yeast, or any honey, in a fire·​·offering to Jehovah.

12 As for the offering of the firstfruits, you shall offer them to Jehovah; but they shall not be offered·​·up on the altar for a restful smell.

13 And every offering of thy gift·​·offering shalt thou salt with salt; neither shalt thou cause the salt of the covenant of thy God to cease from thy gift·​·offering; with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.

14 And if thou offer a gift·​·offering of thy firstfruits to Jehovah, thou shalt offer a gift·​·offering of thy firstfruits of maturing·​·ears, parched grain by the fire, and groats* of fresh·​·grain.

15 And thou shalt put oil on it, and set frankincense on it; it is a gift·​·offering.

16 And the priest shall burn·​·as·​·incense the memorial of it, from its groats, and from its oil, on all its frankincense; it is a fire·​·offering to Jehovah.

Explanation of Leviticus 2      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-3. The worship of the Lord from the highest degree of celestial love is described.

Verse 4. Then follows a description of worship from interior celestial love, or charity to the neighbour, showing how it is connected with that from the highest celestial good, which is pure love to the Lord, and the lowest

Verses 5-6. A similar description of worship from celestial good in the Internal of the Natural succeeds, accompanied by an account of the arrangement of truths there, and of the influx of inmost celestial good.

Verse 7. And lastly, worship from the External of the Natural is described, showing that it is similar to worship from higher loves, but is in a lower degree

Verses 8-10. It is then shown that celestial worship in all these degrees and ways involves certain particulars, namely: the power to worship must be ascribed to the Lord; it must be acknowledged to be from celestial good inmostly derived from Him; and it must be exercised from Him. Also the worshiper will realize the conjunction of truth with good as from himself; he will be able to devote his life to the service of the Lord; he will experience a state of heavenly joy and peace; he will be able to appropriate good and truth; and he will worship the Lord from pure love

Verses 11-13. Again this worship of the Lord must be free from falsity; it must not be vitiated by merely natural delight; such imperfect worship only appertains to preparatory states; and in all worship there must be the mutual desire of truth for good and of good for truth, or in other words, every one who really loves the truth will desire also to be good, and all who sincerely desire to be good will also long for the truth

Verses 14-16. And also, during such worship, in preparatory states, it will be from natural good, and truth influenced by celestial good, and involving the sincere acknowledgement of the Lord.
