tempered.

Leviticus 2:13
And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.









(35) A confection after the art of the apothecary.--See Note on Exodus 30:25. Bezaleel's art was called in, both for the composition of the holy oil and of the holy incense (Exodus 37:29).

Tempered together.--So the LXX., the Vulg., and the Targums of Onkelos and Jonathan. But most moderns render "salted," or "mixed with salt." (See Buxtorf, Gesenius, Lee, Rosenmller, De Wette, Kalisch, Keil, &c.). The word used is capable of either meaning.

Verse 35. - A confection after the art of the apothecary. Like the holy oil, the incense was to be artistically compounded by one accustomed to deal with such ingredients. It was actually, in the first instance, the work of Bezaleel (Exodus 27:29). Tempered together. This translation is supported by the authority of the Septuagint and the Vulgate, and is defended by Canon Cook. But the mass of modern critics is in favour of the translation "salted," or "with salt." (So Buxtorf, Gesenius, De Wette, Kalisch, Keil, etc.) If, nobel suggests "comminuted," identifying malakh with marakh. The point is not one of much importance.
