Leviticus 22:23

Leviticus 22:29

Context
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).

4 tn Heb “for your acceptance” (see the notes on Lev 1:3-4 and 22:19 above).
