22:23 As for an ox 1 or a sheep with a limb too long or stunted, 2 you may present it as a freewill offering, but it will not be acceptable for a votive offering. 3
22:29 When you sacrifice a thanksgiving offering to the Lord, you must sacrifice it so that it is acceptable for your benefit. 4
1 tn Heb “And an ox.”
2 tn Heb “and stunted” (see HALOT 1102 s.v. I קלט).
3 sn The freewill offering was voluntary, so the regulations regarding it were more relaxed. Once a vow was made, the paying of it was not voluntary (see B. A. Levine, Leviticus [JPSTC], 151-52, for very helpful remarks on this verse).
