It comprehends all kinds of sacrifices, and is even once used of sacrifices not burned [?] Leviticus 24:7, Leviticus 24:9. It is of very frequent occurrence in some ritual phrases, as אִשֵּׁה רֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ לַיהֹוָה “a sacrifice of a sweet smell to the Lord,” Leviticus 1:9, 13, 17 2:2, 3:5 לִרֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ אִשֶּׁה לַיהֹוָה Exodus 29:41; Leviticus 8:21 ellipt. אִשֶּׁה לַיהֹוָה “an (acceptable) sacrifice to the Lord,” Leviticus 2:16; Exodus 29:18, 25 Exodus 29:25 pl. אִשֵּׁי יְהֹוָה “sacrifices offered to the Lord,” Leviticus 2:3, 10.
