“In the future, when Aaron’s descendants take their place as the anointed priests, they will continue to make this grain offering to the Lord. This rule will continue forever. The grain offering must be completely burned for the Lord.
One of the priests ·appointed [anointed] to take Aaron’s place as high priest must make the ·grain [L gift; tribute] offering [2:1]. It is a ·rule [statute; ordinance; regulation] forever that the ·grain [L gift; tribute] offering [2:1] must be completely burned to the Lord.
As the sons of the priests replace their fathers, they shall be inducted into office by offering this same sacrifice on the day of their anointing. This is a perpetual law. These offerings shall be entirely burned up before the Lord; none of it shall be eaten.”
God spoke to Moses: “This is the offering which Aaron and his sons each are to present to God on the day he is anointed: two quarts of fine flour as a regular Grain-Offering, half in the morning and half in the evening. Prepare it with oil on a griddle. Bring it well-mixed and then present it crumbled in pieces as a pleasing fragrance to God. Aaron’s son who is anointed to succeed him offers it to God—this is a fixed rule. The whole thing is burned. Every Grain-Offering of a priest is burned completely; it must not be eaten.”
Soothly the priest which is successor to his father, shall offer it hot, into [the] sweetest odour to the Lord; and all it shall be burnt in the altar. (And the priest who is the successor to his father as the High Priest, shall likewise offer it, to make the sweetest aroma to the Lord; and all of it shall be burned on the altar.)
