Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:11 - ‘The priest shall offer one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, and make atonement for him [fn]concerning his sin because of the dead person. And that same day he shall consecrate his head,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:12 - and shall dedicate to the LORD his days [fn]as a [fn]Nazirite, and shall bring a male lamb a year old for a guilt offering; but the former days will be void because his separation was defiled.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:13 - ‘Now this is the law of the Nazirite when the days of his separation are fulfilled, he shall bring [fn]the offering to the doorway of the tent of meeting.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:14 - ‘He shall present his offering to the LORD: one male lamb a year old without defect for a burnt offering and one ewe-lamb a year old without defect for a sin offering and one ram without defect for a peace offering,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:18 - ‘The Nazirite shall then shave his dedicated head of hair at the doorway of the tent of meeting, and take the dedicated hair of his head and put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of peace offerings.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:19 - ‘The priest shall take the ram’s shoulder when it has been boiled, and one unleavened cake out of the basket and one unleavened wafer, and shall put them on the [fn]hands of the Nazirite after he has shaved his [fn]dedicated hair.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:20 - ‘Then the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. It is holy for the priest, together with the breast offered by waving and the thigh offered by lifting up; and afterward the Nazirite may drink wine.’
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:21 - “This is the law of the Nazirite who vows his offering to the LORD according to his separation, in addition to what else [fn]he can afford; according to his vow which he takes, so he shall do according to the law of his separation.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:25 - The LORD make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:26 - The LORD lift up His countenance on you,
And give you peace.’
