 15:3

15:3 you will be presenting fire offerings to God. They may be burnt offerings, or other sacrifices, either for a general or specific pledge, or for your festivals. Taken from the cattle or smaller animals, they shall be meant to provide an appeasing fragrance to God.
Va'asitem isheh l'Adonay olah o-zevach lefale-neder o vindavah o bemo'adeychem la'asot re'ach nichoach l'Adonay min-habakar o min-hatson.
15:4 The one bringing the sacrifice to God must then present a grain offering consisting of 1/10 [ephah] of the best grade wheat meal mixed with 1/4 hin olive oil.
