Leviticus 2:12-13, Why did they have to use salt?

Question: Why did they have to use salt for the meat offering on the altar when it says a sweet savour. When they say you should offer salt.? Verses (12,13) Answer: God seems to be indicating that salt represents His covenant with Israel (Lev 2:13), so it was required with the offerings. We think of salt as a contrast to sweet, but that is with taste. This offering was to be a sweet aroma. -PJ
