The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats.
King James Bible
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
American Standard Version
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old: ye shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats:
Young's Literal Translation
a lamb, a perfect one, a male, a son of a year, let be to you; from the sheep or from the goats ye do take it.
Exodus 12:5 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Without blemish - Having no natural imperfection, no disease, no deficiency or redundancy of parts. On this point the rabbins have trifled most egregiously, reckoning fifty blemishes that render a lamb or kid, or any animal, improper to be sacrificed: five in the ear, three in the eyelid, eight in the eye, three in the nose, six in the mouth, etc., etc.
A male of the first year - That is, any age in the first year between eight days and twelve months.
From the sheep, or from the goats - The שה seh means either; and either was equally proper if without blemish. The Hebrews however in general preferred the lamb to the kid.
