    Definitions for Leviticus 23:10

    Sheaf - Bundle of grain.

    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 23:10

    Sheaf - The original word, "omer", means either a sheaf Deuteronomy 24:19; Ruth 2:7, or a measure Exodus 16:16. Our version is probably right in this place. The offering which was waved Leviticus 7:30 was most likely a small sheaf of barley, the grain which is first ripe. The first fruits of the wheat harvest were offered seven weeks later in the loaves of Pentecost. See Leviticus 23:15-17. The two offerings thus figure the very commencement and the completion of the grain harvest; compare Ruth 1:22; Ruth 2:23.

    Wesley's Notes on Leviticus 23:10

    23:10 An omer - They did not offer this corn in the ear, or by a sheaf or handful, but, as Josephus,
    3. 10 affirms, and may be gathered from Lev 2:14,15,16, purged from the chaff, and dryed, and beaten out.
