      n : fine powdery foodstuff obtained by grinding and sifting the
          meal of a cereal grain
      v 1: cover with flour; "flour fish or meat before frying it"
      2: convert grain into flour

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Grain reduced to the form of meal is spoken of in the time of
    Abraham (Gen. 18:6). As baking was a daily necessity, grain was
    also ground daily at the mills (Jer. 25:10). The flour mingled
    with water was kneaded in kneading-troughs, and sometimes leaven
    (Ex. 12:34) was added and sometimes omitted (Gen. 19:3). The
    dough was then formed into thin cakes nine or ten inches in
    diameter and baked in the oven.
      Fine flour was offered by the poor as a sin-offering (Lev.
    5:11-13), and also in connection with other sacrifices (Num.
    15:3-12; 28:7-29).
