Leviticus 21:17 -- "Speak to Aaron, saying: 'No man of your descendants in succeeding generations, who has any defect, may approach to offer the bread of his God.’”

According to the Mishnah, “Priests with a physical defect used to pick out the wood which had worms, since any piece of wood with a worm in it was unfit for use upon the altar.”*

* Mid. II, 5
