CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
19:2 Red - A fit colour to shadow forth the bloody nature of sin, and the blood of Christ, from which this water and all other rites had their purifying virtue. No blemish - A fit type of Christ. Upon which never came yoke - Whereby may be signified, either that Christ in himself was free from all the yoke or obligation of God's command, till for our sakes he put himself under the law; or that Christ was not forced to undertake our burden and cross, but did voluntarily chuse it. He was bound and held with no other cords but those of his own love.
Do not present an animal with defects, because the LORD will not accept it on your behalf.
The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
When the nearest town has been determined, that town's elders must select from the herd a young cow that has never been trained or yoked to a plow.
1 Samuel 6:7
"Now build a new cart, and find two cows that have just given birth to calves. Make sure the cows have never been yoked to a cart. Hitch the cows to the cart, but shut their calves away from them in a pen.
