14And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
14 Verse 14. Ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor
green ears] It is right that God, the dispenser of every
blessing, should be acknowledged as such, and the first-fruits
of the field, &c., dedicated to him. Concerning the dedication
of the first-fruits, See Clarke on Ex 22:29.
Parched ears of corn and green ears, fried, still constitute a
part, and not a disagreeable one, of the food of the Arabs now
resident in the Holy Land. See Hasselquist.
