Numbers 6:15

Context
6:15 and a basket of bread made without yeast, cakes of fine flour mixed with olive oil, wafers made without yeast and smeared with olive oil, and their 1  grain offering and their drink offerings. 2 

Numbers 15:4

Context
15:4 then the one who presents his offering to the Lord must bring 3  a grain offering of one-tenth of an ephah of finely ground flour mixed with one fourth of a hin of olive oil. 4 

1 tn The suffixes in the MT are plural in this verse, whereas in v. 17 they are singular. This seems to be a matter of stylistic choice, referring to whomever may be taking the vow.

2 sn The offerings for the termination of the Nazirite vow would not have been inexpensive. This indicates that the person making the short term vow may have had income, or have come from a wealthier section of society. Short term vows had to be considered carefully as this ruling required a good amount of food to be brought.

3 tn The three words at the beginning of this verse are all etymologically related: “the one who offers his offering shall offer.”

4 sn Obviously, as the wording of the text affirms, this kind of offering would be made after they were in the land and able to produce the grain and oil for the sacrifices. The instructions anticipated their ability to do this, and this would give hope to them. The amounts are difficult to determine, but it may be that they were to bring 4.5 liters of flour and 1.8 liters each of oil and wine.
