FLOUR

Fine-crushed and sifted grain used in making bread (Exodus 29:2; 1 Samuel 28:24), often translated as fine or choice flour. Typically meal, which was ground course from the whole kernels of grain together with the bran, was used to make bread (Leviticus 2:16; 1 Kings 17:12). The first fruits cereal offering was of course grain since it represented the common table fare. Most often cereal offerings were of fine flour (Leviticus 2:1-2,Leviticus 2:4-5,Leviticus 2:7), ground from the inner kernels of wheat only, the best part of the grain (Deuteronomy 32:14). Fine flour was a luxury item (2 Kings 7:1; Ezekiel 16:13; Revelation 18:13) such as might be baked as bread for an honored guest (Genesis 18:6; 1 Samuel 28:24).
