Peace offering

Eucharistic, indicating that the offerer was already by the atonement at peace with God (Leviticus 3; Leviticus 7:11-34; Leviticus 23:19-20). Spontaneous, "at your own will" (Leviticus 19:5); the only regularly recurring one was that of two firstling lambs at Pentecost. The meat offering on the other hand was regularly ordained. Periods of extraordinary solemnity or joy were the times of peace offerings: as Exodus 24:5; Leviticus 9:18; Joshua 8:31; 1 Samuel 11:15; 2 Samuel 6:17; 1 Kings 8:63; 1 Kings 9:25; 2 Chronicles 30:22; see also Judges 20:26; 2 Samuel 24:25.
