Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

21:17 hath any blemish. No descendant of Aaron with any of the blemishes listed in Leviticus 21:18-20 was permitted to become an officiating priest. Both the priests, as types of Christ the ever-living intercessory priest (Hebrews 7:25) and the offerings, as types of the ultimate sacrificial Lamb of God (John 1:29) must be spotless, since He would offer Himself one day without spot to God for the sin of the whole world.
