NRSA 18 For no one who has a blemish shall draw near, one who is blind or lame, or one who has a mutilated face or a limb too long, NIV 18 No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed; NRSA 19 or one who has a broken foot or a broken hand, NIV 19 no man with a crippled foot or hand, NRSA 20 or a hunchback, or a dwarf, or a man with a blemish in his eyes or an itching disease or scabs or crushed testicles. NIV 20 or who is a hunchback or a dwarf, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles. NRSA 21 No descendant of Aaron the priest who has a blemish shall come near to offer the Lord's offerings by fire; since he has a blemish, he shall not come near to offer the food of his God. NIV 21 No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect is to come near to present the food offerings to the LORD. He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God. NRSA 22 He may eat the food of his God, of the most holy as well as of the holy. NIV 22 He may eat the most holy food of his God, as well as the holy food; NRSA 23 But he shall not come near the curtain or approach the altar, because he has a blemish, that he may not profane my sanctuaries; for I am the Lord; I sanctify them. NIV 23 yet because of his defect, he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary. I am the LORD, who makes them holy.’ ”
