Day Fifty-Two, Various Passages from Leviticus and Numbers
Today’s reading talks about a couple of the different types of offerings the Israelites were commanded to give to the Lord. It has regulations for burnt offerings and grain offerings.
Burnt offerings were continuous sacrifices of unblemished animals. The worshiper was to lay his hands on the animal, its blood was used to make atonement for the person worshiping, and the burnt offering was completely burned up.
The grain offering was an offering of devotion, and was to bring God’s blessing upon the crops. There were specific instructions about how they were to be prepared, and the worshiper would offer whatever crops they were offering according to those specified instructions.
