22:5 Or who ever touches any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, What ever uncleanness he has;

22:19 [ ya’ll shall offer] at your own will a male without blemish, of the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.

22:23 Either a bullock or a lamb that has any thing superfluous or lacking in his parts, that may you offer [for] a freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted.
22:24 ya’ll shall not offer to the LORD that which is bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut ; neither shall ya’ll make [any offering thereof] in your land.
22:25 Neither from a stranger’s hand shall ya’ll offer the bread of your God of any of these ; because their corruption [is] in them, [and] blemishes [be] in them they shall not be accepted for you.
