Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:5 -

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:12 -

“He is to rededicate his time of consecration to the LORD and to bring a year-old male lamb as a guilt offering. But do not count the initial period of consecration because it became defiled.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:13 -

“This is the law of the Nazirite: On the day his time of consecration is completed, he is to be brought to the entrance to the tent of meeting.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:14 -

“He is to present an offering to the LORD of one unblemished year-old male lamb as a burnt offering, one unblemished year-old female lamb as a sin offering, one unblemished ram as a fellowship offering,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:20 -

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:22 -

The LORD spoke to Moses:

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:23 -

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:24 -

“May the LORD bless you and protect you;

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:25 -

“may the LORD make his face shine on you

and be gracious to you;

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:26 -

“may the LORD look with favor on you[fn]

and give you peace.” ’

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:27 -

In this way they will pronounce my name over[fn] the Israelites, and I will bless them.”
