3:11 The priest shall burn them on the altar, to be consumed as a fire offering to God.

3:12 If his sacrifice is a goat, he shall present it before God.
Ve'im-ez korbano vehikrivo lifney Adonay.


to be consumed
  Literally 'bread,' lechem in Hebrew. Some say that this denotes something acceptable before God (Saadia). According to others it denotes 'food' (Ibn Ezra), 'flesh' (Ibn Janach; Radak), or 'fuel for the fire' (Rashi; Hirsch). It might be called a 'bread offering' because part of it was eaten; but see Numbers 28:2. It may also denote 'spiritual food.'
