Evening Sacrifice

See also Sacrifice

EVENING SACRIFICE. The daily burnt offering of a yearling lamb. With the morning sacrifice it constituted the continual burnt offering. Each sacrifice, a lamb without blemish, was offered with a cereal (“meal,” KJV “meat”) offering, one-fifth peck of fine flour with a quart of oil; and a libation, a quart of wine (Exod 29:38-42; Num 28:3-8). The observance was important in the history of Israel (2 Chron 13:11, et al.). The continual burnt offering of the restored temple of Ezekiel included only the morning sacrifice (Ezek 46:13-15).
