"Say to Aaron: 'For the generations to come none of your descendants who has a defect1 may come near to offer the food of his God.218
No man who has any defect3 may come near: no man who is blind4 or lame,5 disfigured or deformed;
no man with a crippled foot or hand,
or who is hunchbacked or dwarfed, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles.621
No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect7 is to come near to present the offerings made to the LORD by fire.8 He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God.922
He may eat the most holy food of his God,10 as well as the holy food;
yet because of his defect,11 he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary.12 I am the LORD, who makes them holy.a13' "
