Again the LORDspoke to Moses, saying,
2"Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, 'When a manorwomanmakes a aspecialvow, the vow of 1a bNazirite, to cdedicate himself to the LORD,
he shall 2abstain from wine and strongdrink ; he shall drinknovinegar, whether made from wine or strongdrink, nor shall he drinkanygrapejuicenoreatfresh or driedgrapes.
4'All the days of his dseparation he shall not eatanything that is produced by the grapevine, from the seeds even to the skin.
5'All the days of his vow of separation3norazor shall passover his head. He shall be holyuntil the days are fulfilled for which he separated himself to the LORD ; he shall let the locks of hair on his headgrowlong.
'4All the days of his separation to the LORD he shall not go near to a deadperson.
'He 5shall not make himself unclean for his father or for his mother, for his brother or for his sister, when they die, because his separation to God is on his head.
8'All the days of his separation he is holy to the LORD.
'But if a man diesverysuddenlybeside him and he defiles his dedicatedhead of hair, then 6he shall shave his head on the day when he becomesclean ; 7he shall shave it on the seventhday.
'Then on the eighthday he shall bring8twoturtledovesortwoyoungpigeons to the priest, to the doorway of the tent of meeting.
'The priest shall offer9one for a sinoffering and the other for a burntoffering, and makeatonement for him econcerning his sinbecause of the dead person. And that sameday he shall consecrate his head,
and shall dedicate to the LORD his daysfas a gNazirite, and shall bring a malelamb a yearold for a guiltoffering ; but the formerdays will be voidbecause his separation was defiled.
'Now this is the law of the Nazirite10when the days of his separation are fulfilled, he shall bringhthe offering to the doorway of the tent of meeting.
'He shall present his offering to the LORD : onemalelamb a yearoldwithoutdefect for a burntoffering and one11ewe-lamb a yearoldwithoutdefect for a sinoffering and oneramwithoutdefect for a peaceoffering,
and a basket of 12unleavenedcakes of fineflourmixed with oil and unleavenedwafersspread with oil, along with 13their grain offering and their drinkoffering.
'Then the priest shall present them before the LORD and shall offer his sinoffering and his burntoffering.
'He shall also offer the ram for a sacrifice of peaceofferings to the LORD, together with the basket of unleavenedcakes ; the priest shall likewise offer its grain offering and its drinkoffering.
'14The Nazirite shall then shave his dedicatedhead of hair at the doorway of the tent of meeting, and take the dedicatedhair of his head and put it on the firewhich is under the sacrifice of peaceofferings.
'15The priest shall take the ram'sshoulder when it has been boiled, and oneunleavenedcake out of the basket and oneunleavenedwafer, and shall put them on the ihands of the Naziriteafter he has shaved his jdedicated hair.
'Then the priest shall wave them for a waveofferingbefore the LORD. It is holy for the priest, together with the breastoffered by waving and the thighoffered by lifting up; and 16afterward the Nazirite may drinkwine.'
21"This is the law of the Naziritewhovows his offering to the LORDaccording to his separation, in addition to what else khe can afford ; according to his vowwhich he takes, so he shall doaccording to the law of his separation."
Then the LORDspoke to Moses, saying,
23"Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, 'Thus17you shall bless the sons of Israel. You shall say to them:
The LORD18bless you, and 19keep you;
The LORD20make His faceshine on you, And 21be gracious to you;
The LORD22lift up His countenance on you, And 23give you peace.'
"So they shall l24invoke My name on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them."
