Deuteronomy 15:21; Deuteronomy 17:1; Malachi 1:8; Malachi 1:14; Hebrews 9:14; 1 Peter 1:19

21 fBut if it has any blemish, if it is lame or blind or has any serious blemish whatever, you shall not sacrifice it to the Lord your God.


17 jYou shall not sacrifice to the Lord your God an ox or a sheep in which is a blemish, any defect whatever, for that is an abomination to the Lord your God.


lWhen you offer blind animals in sacrifice, is that not evil? And when you offer those that are lame or sick, is that not evil? Present that to your governor; will he accept you or show you favor? says the Lord of hosts.


14 Cursed be the cheat who has ua male in his flock, and vvows it, and yet sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished. For wI am a great King, says the Lord of hosts, and my name xwill be feared among the nations.


14 how much more will qthe blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit roffered himself without blemish to God, spurify our1 conscience tfrom dead works uto serve the living God.


19 but twith the precious blood of Christ, like that of ua lamb vwithout blemish or spot.
