Flour offering. Fine flour. You touch fine flour it is so fine. Is the Person of Jesus. There is nothing uneven.

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow,
saith the LORD of hosts:
smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered:
and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
Sword speaks of judgement.
The last mention of sword in Zechariah
Jesus is the Sword.
