“And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”
King James Version (KJV)
Eph 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us. Thus imitate God, and Christ who gave himself for us. An offering and a sacrifice to God. In the Jewish temple there were offerings which were not sacrifices. Christ gave himself as an offering and was sacrificed. A sweet-smelling savour. See Ge 8:21 Le 1:9 2Co 2:15. An expression denoting an offering grateful to God.
