Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:1 - Then the LORD spoke to Moses:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:2 - "Speak to the Israelites, and tell them, 'When either a man or a woman takes a special vow, to take a vow as a Nazirite, to separate himself to the LORD,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:3 - he must separate himself from wine and strong drink, he must drink neither vinegar made from wine nor vinegar made from strong drink, nor may he drink any juice of grapes, nor eat fresh grapes or raisins.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:4 - All the days of his separation he must not eat anything that is produced by the grapevine, from seed to skin.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:5 - "'All the days of the vow of his separation no razor may be used on his head until the time is fulfilled for which he separated himself to the LORD. He will be holy, and he must let the locks of hair on his head grow long.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:6 - "'All the days that he separates himself to the LORD he must not contact a dead body.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:7 - He must not defile himself even for his father or his mother or his brother or his sister if they die, because the separation for his God is on his head.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:8 - All the days of his separation he must be holy to the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:9 - "'If anyone dies very suddenly beside him and he defiles his consecrated head, then he must shave his head on the day of his purification - on the seventh day he must shave it.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:10 - On the eighth day he is to bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the priest, to the entrance to the tent of meeting.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:11 - Then the priest will offer one for a purification offering and the other as a burnt offering, and make atonement for him, because of his transgression in regard to the corpse. So he must reconsecrate his head on that day.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:12 - He must rededicate to the LORD the days of his separation and bring a male lamb in its first year as a reparation offering, but the former days will not be counted 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 must be brought to the entrance of the tent of meeting,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:14 - and he must present his offering to the LORD: one male lamb in its first year without blemish for a burnt offering, one ewe lamb in its first year without blemish for a purification offering, one ram without blemish for a peace offering,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:15 - and a basket of bread made without yeast, cakes of fine flour mixed with olive oil, wafers made without yeast and smeared with olive oil, and their grain offering and their drink offerings.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:16 - "'Then the priest must present all these before the LORD and offer his purification offering and his burnt offering.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:17 - Then he must offer the ram as a peace offering to the LORD, with the basket of bread made without yeast; the priest must also offer his grain offering and his drink offering.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:18 - "'Then the Nazirite must shave his consecrated head at the entrance to the tent of meeting and must take the hair from his consecrated head and put it on the fire where the peace offering is burning.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:19 - And the priest must take the boiled shoulder of the ram, one cake made without yeast from the basket, and one wafer made without yeast, and put them on the hands of the Nazirite after he has shaved his consecrated head;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:20 - then the priest must wave them as a wave offering before the LORD; it is a holy portion for the priest, together with the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the raised offering. After this the Nazirite may drink wine.'
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:21 - "This is the law of the Nazirite who vows to the LORD his offering according to his separation, as well as whatever else he can provide. Thus he must fulfill his vow that he makes, according to the law of his separation."

Aaron's Benediction

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:22 - The LORD spoke to Moses:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:23 - "Tell Aaron and his sons, 'This is the way you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:24 - "The LORD bless you and protect you;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:25 - The LORD make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:26 - The LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace."'
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 6:27 - So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them."
