Holman Bible Dictionary
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.
