17 The LORD spoke to Moshe, saying,
18 Speak to Aharon, and to his sons, and to all the children of Yisra'el, and tell them, Whoever he be of the house of Yisra'el, or of the sojourners in Yisra'el, that offers his offering, whether it be any of their vows, or any of their freewill-offerings, which they offer to the LORD for a burnt offering;
19 that you may be accepted, [you shall offer] a male without blemish, of the bulls, of the sheep, or of the goats.
20 But whatever has a blemish, that shall you not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you.
21 Whoever offers a sacrifice of peace-offerings to the LORD to accomplish a vow, or for a freewill-offering, of the herd or of the flock, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein.
22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, you shall not offer these to the LORD, nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to the LORD.
23 Either a bull or a lamb that has any deformity or lacking in his parts, that may you offer for a freewill-offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted.
24 That which has its stones bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut, you shall not offer to the LORD; neither shall you do [thus] in your land.
25 Neither from the hand of a foreigner shall you offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruption is in them, there is a blemish in them: they shall not be accepted for you.
26 The LORD spoke to Moshe, saying,
27 When a bull, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be seven days under the hen; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for the offering of an offering made by fire to the LORD.
28 Whether it be cow or ewe, you shall not kill it and its young both in one day.
29 When you sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD, you shall sacrifice it that you may be accepted.
30 On the same day it shall be eaten; you shall leave none of it until the morning: I am the LORD.
31 Therefore shall you keep my mitzvot, and do them: I am the LORD.
32 You shall not profane my holy name; but I will be made holy among the children of Yisra'el: I am the LORD who makes you holy,
33 who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim, to be your God: I am the LORD.
