Grain Offerings

Home / Glossary / Grain Offerings

The Grain Offerings (called “meat offerings” in the KJV and “meal-offerings” in the ASV)

The Israelites offered grain or vegetables in addition to the animals. All grain offerings were made with oil and salt and no honey and leaven were to be used (oil and salt preserved while honey and leaven would spoil). The worshipper was also to bring a portion of incense (frankincense).

The grain offerings were brought to one of the priests, who took it to the altar and cast a “memorial portion” on the fire and he did this also with the incense. The priest ate the remainder unless he was bringing the grain offering for himself where he would burn the whole thing.

The purpose of the grain offering was an offering of gifts and speaks of a life that is dedicated to generosity and giving.
