As an offering of firstfruits you may offer leaven and honey to the Lord, but they shall not be burned on the altar for a sweet odor [to the Lord, for their aid to fermentation is symbolic of corruption in the human heart].
“All the Grain-Offerings that you present to God must be made without yeast; you must never burn any yeast or honey as a Fire-Gift to God. You may offer them to God as an offering of firstfruits but not on the Altar as a pleasing fragrance. Season every presentation of your Grain-Offering with salt. Don’t leave the salt of the covenant with your God out of your Grain-Offerings. Present all your offerings with salt.
Ye shall offer only the first fruits of those, and gifts; soothly those shall not be put on the altar, into odour of sweetness. (Ye shall offer the first fruits of your grain each year to the Lord; but they shall not be put on the altar, to make the sweetest aroma to the Lord.)
