Numbers 6:14

Numbers 6:14

And he shall offer his offering unto the Lord
The Nazarite was to present his offering at the door of the tabernacle, to the priest, in order to be offered for him to the Lord:

one he lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt offering;
according to the law, manner, and custom of a burnt offering, as Aben Ezra observes, which, whether of the herd or of the flock, was to be a male and unblemished, and not more than a year old, ( Leviticus 1:3-10 ) ;

and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin
offering;
as was the manner and custom of a sin offering, to be a female, as is remarked by the same writer, see ( Leviticus 4:32 ) ;

and one ram without blemish for peace offerings;
all sorts of offerings were offered on this occasion; a "sin offering", though the vow was performed, and not any mistake made, or anything omitted that was known; yet, lest there should be any secret and unknown breach of the law of Nazariteship committed, a sin offering was required: this teaches us that there may be secret and unknown sins committed by the best of men, in their most sacred and solemn services; and that there is no justification before God by the best works of men, find that the purest and most perfect stand in need of the atoning sacrifice of Christ: a "burnt offering" was to be offered, which usually followed the sin offering, as it did here, though mentioned first, see ( Numbers 6:16 ) ; and which was done by way of thanksgiving to God for his acceptance of the sin offering: and "peace offerings" were, as Aben Ezra observes, for joy that he had performed his vow: the burnt offering was wholly the Lord's, the sin offering the priest had his part of, and the peace offerings the Nazarite and his friends ate of, and so everyone had their share in these oblations.
