Rules for Priests

1 The LORD said to Moses, "Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron,1 and say to them: 'A priest must not make himself ceremonially unclean2 for any of his people who die,3 2 except for a close relative, such as his mother or father,4 his son or daughter, his brother, 3 or an unmarried sister who is dependent on him since she has no husband--for her he may make himself unclean.5 4 He must not make himself unclean for people related to him by marriage,a and so defile himself. 5 " 'Priests must not shave6 their heads or shave off the edges of their beards7 or cut their bodies.8
