Leviticus 21:17-18,22

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 "Speak to Aaron, saying, Whoever of your children in their generations that has any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.

 18 For whatever man has a blemish, he shall not approach, as well as a blind man, or a lame, or he that has a flat nose, or anything superfluous, [God not allowing the lame and blind to approach the altar is an allegory to God's repulsion of being worshipped by those who cannot see by his light and walk by his spirit; the spiritually lame and blind who pray and worship from their carnal minds in will-worship are an abomination; for God must be worshipped in Spirit and Truth only.]

 22 He may eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.
