Leviticus 22:27 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Every peace-offering was also to be faultless, whether brought "to fulfil a special (important) vow" (cf. Numbers 15:3, Numbers 15:8 : פּלּא, from פּלא to be great, distinguished, wonderful), or as a freewill gift; that is to say, it was to be free from such faults as blindness, or a broken limb (from lameness therefore: Deuteronomy 15:21), or cutting (i.e., mutilation, answering to חרוּם Leviticus 21:18), or an abscess (יבּלת, from יבל to flow, probably a flowing suppurating abscess).

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

seven days It was necessary for the mother's health that the young one should suck so long; and prior to this time, the process of nutrition in a young animal can scarcely be considered as completely formed. Besides this, it may justly be asserted, that the flesh of very young animals is comparatively innutritive. There is something brutish in eating the young of beast or fowl, before the hair and hoofs are perfect in the one, and feathers and claws in the other; and before this period, their flesh is not good for food, consequently they were not fit for sacrifice, which is termed the {bread} or {food} of God.

Leviticus 22:25 Neither from a stranger's hand shall you offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruption is in them...

Leviticus 12:2,3 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days...

Exodus 22:30 Likewise shall you do with your oxen, and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day you shall give it me.
