Oblation

Additional Links
Gift offered at an altar or shrine, especially a voluntary gift not involving blood. KJV used oblation to translate four Hebrew words. Modern translations often replace oblation with either offering (Leviticus 7:38; Isaiah 1:13; Ezekiel 44:30 ) or contribution (2 Chronicles 31:14; Ezekiel 20:40 ). RSV used oblation only at 1Kings 18:29,1 Kings 18:36 where it replaced the “evening sacrifice” of the KJV, NIV, NAS. See Sacrifice and Offerings.
