Why does it have strange spelling?
1 The meate offering of flower with oile and incense, 4 either baken in the ouen, 5 or on a plate, 7 or in a frying pan, 12 Or of the first fruits in the eare. 13 The salt of the meate offering.
And when any will offer a meate offering vnto the Lord, his offring shall be of fine flowre: and hee shall powre oyle vpon it, and put frankincense thereon.
And he shall bring it to Aarons sonnes the Priests: and hee shall take thereout his handfull of the flowre thereof, and of the oile thereof, with all the frankincense thereof, and the Priest shall burne the memoriall of it vpon the altar, to be an offering made by fire of a sweet sauour vnto the Lord.
And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aarons and his sonnes: it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the Lord made by fire.3
¶ And if thou bring an oblation of a meate offering baken in the ouen, it shall bee an vnleauened cake of fine flowre mingled with oyle, or vnleauened wafers anointed with oyle.
¶ And if thy oblation be a meate offering baken in a panne, it shall bee of fine flowre vnleauened, mingled with oyle.5
Thou shalt part it in pieces, and powre oyle thereon: it is a meate offering.
¶ And if thy oblation be a meate offering baken in the frying pan, it shalbe made of fine flowre with oyle.
And thou shalt bring the meat offering that is made of these things vnto the Lord, and when it is presented vnto the Priest, he shall bring it vnto the Altar.
And the Priest shall take from the meat offering a memoriall thereof, and shall burne it vpon the Altar, it is an offering made by fire of a sweet sauour vnto the Lord.9
And that which is left of the meat offering, shalbe Aarons and his sonnes: It is a thing most holy, of the offerings of the Lord made by fire.
No meat offering, which ye shall bring vnto the Lord, shall be made with leauen: For ye shall burne no leauen, nor any hony, in any offering of the Lord made by fire.
¶ As for the oblation of the first fruits, yee shall offer them vnto the Lord, but they shall not be burnt on the Altar for a sweet sauour.12
And euery oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the Couenant of thy God to bee lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.13
And if thou offer a meat offering of thy first fruits vnto the Lord, thou shalt offer for the meat offering of thy first fruits, greene eares of corne dried by the fire, euen corne beaten out of full eares.
And thou shalt put oyle vpon it, and lay frankincense theron; it is a meat offering.
And the Priest shall burne the memoriall of it, part of the beaten corne thereof, and part of the oyle thereof, with all the frankincense thereof: it is an offering made by fire vnto the Lord.
