Deuteronomy 17:7 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Not only did the inclination to nature-worship, such as the setting up of the idols of Ashera and Baal, belong to the crimes which merited punishment, but also a manifest transgression of the laws concerning the worship of Jehovah, such as the offering of an ox or sheep that had some fault, which was an abomination in the sight of Jehovah (see at Leviticus 22:20.). "Any evil thing," i.e., any of the faults enumerated in Leviticus 22:22-24.
