NET © Notes

tn Heb “And an ox.”

tn Heb “and stunted” (see HALOT 1102 s.v. I קלט).

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).
