SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:14 Y si el holocausto se hubiere de ofrecer al SEÑOR de aves, presentará su ofrenda de tórtolas, o de palominos.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 14. And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the Lord be of fowls , etc.] As it might be for the poorer sort, who could not offer a bullock, nor a sheep, or a lamb, ( Leviticus 5:7 12:8): then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves, or of young pigeons ; the Jewish writers all agree, that the turtles should be old, and not young, as the pigeons young, and not old; so the Targum of Jonathan, Jarchi, Aben Ezra and Gersom f35 ; the latter gives two reasons for it, because then they are the choicest and easiest to be found and taken: no mention is made of their being male or female, either would do, or of their being perfect and unblemished, as in the other burnt offerings; but if any part was wanting, it was not fit for sacrifice, as Maimonides observes. These creatures were proper emblems of Christ, and therefore used in sacrifice, whose voice is compared to the turtle’s, and his eyes to the eyes of doves, ( Song of Solomon 2:12 5:12) and who is fitly represented by them for his meekness and humility, for his chaste and strong affection to his church, as the turtledove to its mate, and for those dove like graces of the Spirit which are in him.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-17 - Those who could not offer a bullock, were to bring a sheep or a goat and those who were not able to do that, were accepted of God, if the brought a turtle-dove, or a pigeon. Those creatures were chosen for sacrifice which were mild, and gentle, and harmless; to show the innocence and meekness that were in Christ, and that should be in Christians. The offering of the poor was as typical of Christ' atonement as the more costly sacrifices, and expressed as full repentance, faith, and devotedness to God. We have no excuse, if we refuse the pleasant and reasonable service now required. But we can n more offer the sacrifice of a broken heart, or of praise an thanksgiving, than an Israelite could offer a bullock or a goat, excep as God hath first given to us. The more we do in the Lord's service the greater are our obligations to him, for the will, for the ability and opportunity. In many things God leaves us to fix what shall be spent in his service, whether of our time or our substance; yet wher God's providence has put much into a man's power, scanty offerings wil not be accepted, for they are not proper expressions of a willing mind Let us be devoted in body and soul to his service, whatever he may cal us to give, venture, do, or suffer for his sake __________________________________________________________________
