Leviticus 5:12


He must bring it to the priest and the priest must scoop out from it a handful as its memorial portion 1  and offer it up in smoke on the altar on top of the other gifts of the Lord – it is a sin offering.

NET © Notes

sn The “memorial portion” (אַזְכָּרָה, ’azkkarah) was the part of the grain offering that was burnt on the altar (Lev 2:2), as opposed to the remainder, which was normally consumed by the priests (Lev 2:3; see the full regulations in Lev 6:14-23 [6:7-16 HT]). It was probably intended to call to mind (i.e., memorialize) before the Lord the reason for the presentation of the particular offering (see the remarks in R. E. Averbeck, NIDOTTE 1:335-39).
