Note: at the end of today’s Portion of Bible Text, you will find my thoughts on the verses. B.K.
14 And this is the law of the meat offering: the sons of Aaron shall offer it before the Lord, before the altar.
15 And he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat offering, and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is upon the meat offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savour, even the memorial of it, unto the Lord.
16 And the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place; in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it.
17 It shall not be baken with leaven. I have given it unto them for their portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as is the sin offering, and as the trespass offering.
18 All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings of the Lord made by fire: every one that toucheth them shall be holy.
K.J.V. Bible Text
Verse 14 of Leviticus 6 tells us about the law of the meat offering and how, after the priest offers a handful of the flour as a meat offering, the remainder is for Aaron and his sons to eat. It is to be baked with no leaven and is to be most holy as is the sin offering and the trespass offering. These offerings are reserved for the children of Aaron (the statute being forever) for everyone that touches these offerings must be holy. (You will recall that Aaron and his sons have been appointed priests by the Lord. Only they are holy; only they can visit the altar and only they can partake of the priests’ portion of the offerings given to the Lord.)
