View In My Bible
13 Buta a priest's daughter, when she becomes a widow orb divorced or there is no offspring for her, and she returns to her father's house as [in] her childhood, she may eat from her father's food, butc {no layman may eat it}.d 14 And if a man eats [the] votive offering unintentionally, thene he shall add to it a fifth of it, and he shall give the votive offering to the priest. 15 And they shall not profane the {Israelites}'f votive offerings that they present to Yahweh, 16 and so cause them, by their eating their votive offerings, to bear guilt requiring a guilt offering, because I [am] Yahweh, who consecrates them.'"

Acceptable Offerings

17 Theng Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 18 "Speak to Aaron and to his sons and to all the {Israelites},h and say to them, 'Anyone from the house of Israel ori from the alien in Israel who presents his offering for any of their vows orj for any of their freewill offerings that they present to Yahweh as a burnt offering, 19 [it must be] without defect {to be acceptable for you}:k a male among the cattle, among the sheep, orl among the goats. 20 You shall not present any [animal] in which [is] a physical defect, because it shall not be {acceptable}m for you. 21 And if anyone brings a sacrifice of fellowship offerings for Yahweh to fulfill a vow or as a freewill offering fromn the cattle or fromo the flock,p it must be without defect {to be acceptable};q there must not be any physical defect in it. 22 [The] blind or [the] injured or [the] maimed or [the] seeping or [one with a] skin disorder or [one with a] skin eruption--these you shall not present to Yahweh, nor shall you give from them an offering made by fire on the altar for Yahweh. 23 As forr an ox or sheep that is deformed ors that is stunted, you may present it [as] a freewill offering, butt for a vow it will not be accepted.
