Leviticus 1:14-2:6

14 “‘If his offering to Adonai is a burnt offering of birds, he must offer a dove or a young pigeon. 

15 The cohen is to bring it to the altar, snap off its head and make it go up in smoke on the altar; its blood is to be drained out on the side of the altar. 

16 He is to remove the food pouch and its feathers from its neck and discard it on the pile of ashes just east of the altar. 

17 He is to pull it open with a wing on each side, but without tearing it in half. The cohen is to make it go up in smoke on the altar, on the wood which is on the fire, as a burnt offering; it is an offering made by fire, a fragrant aroma for Adonai.

“‘Anyone who brings a grain offering to Adonai is to make his offering of fine flour; he is to pour olive oil on it and put frankincense on it. 

He is to bring it to the sons of Aharon, the cohanim. The cohen is to take a handful of fine flour from it, together with its olive oil and all its frankincense, and make this reminder portion go up in smoke on the altar as an offering made by fire, a fragrant aroma for Adonai

But the rest of the grain offering will belong to Aharon and his sons; it is an especially holy part of the offerings for Adonai made by fire.

“‘When you bring a grain offering which has been baked in the oven, it is to consist of either unleavened cakes made of fine flour mixed with olive oil or matzah spread with olive oil. 

If your offering is a grain offering cooked on a griddle, it is to consist of unleavened fine flour mixed with olive oil; 

you are to break it in pieces and pour olive oil on it — it is a grain offering.
