2:4‘When you present an offering of grain baked in an oven, it must be made of 10  choice wheat flour baked into unleavened loaves 11  mixed with olive oil or 12  unleavened wafers smeared 13  with olive oil. 2:5 If your offering is a grain offering made on the griddle, it must be choice wheat flour mixed with olive oil, unleavened. 2:6 Crumble it in pieces 14  and pour olive oil on it – it is a grain offering. 2:7 If your offering is a grain offering made in a pan, 15  it must be made of choice wheat flour deep fried in olive oil. 16 

2:8‘You must bring the grain offering that must be made from these to the Lord. Present it to the priest, 17  and he will bring it to the altar. 2:9 Then the priest must take up 18  from the grain offering its memorial portion and offer it up in smoke on the altar – it is 19  a gift of a soothing aroma to the Lord. 2:10 The remainder of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and to his sons – it is 20  most holy from the gifts of the Lord.
