Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 22:23

_ _ that mayest thou offer, etc. — The passage should be rendered thus: “if thou offer it either for a freewill offering, or for a vow, it shall not be accepted.” This sacrifice being required to be “without blemish” [Leviticus 22:19], symbolically implied that the people of God were to dedicate themselves wholly with sincere purposes of heart, and its being required to be “perfect to be accepted” [Leviticus 22:21], led them typically to Him without whom no sacrifice could be offered acceptable to God.
