Numbers 6

NLT 1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Speak to the people of Israel and give them these instructions: NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, NLT 2 If some of the people, either men or women, take the special vow of a Nazirite, setting themselves apart to the LORD in a special way, NIV 2 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If a man or woman wants to make a special vow, a vow of separation to the LORD as a Nazirite, NLT 3 they must give up wine and other alcoholic drinks. They must not use vinegar made from wine, they must not drink other fermented drinks or fresh grape juice, and they must not eat grapes or raisins. NIV 3 he must abstain from wine and other fermented drink and must not drink vinegar made from wine or from other fermented drink. He must not drink grape juice or eat grapes or raisins. NLT 4 As long as they are bound by their Nazirite vow, they are not allowed to eat or drink anything that comes from a grapevine, not even the grape seeds or skins." NIV 4 As long as he is a Nazirite, he must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine, not even the seeds or skins. NLT 5 "They must never cut their hair throughout the time of their vow, for they are holy and set apart to the LORD. That is why they must let their hair grow long. NIV 5 " 'During the entire period of his vow of separation no razor may be used on his head. He must be holy until the period of his separation to the LORD is over; he must let the hair of his head grow long. NLT 6 And they may not go near a dead body during the entire period of their vow to the LORD, NIV 6 Throughout the period of his separation to the LORD he must not go near a dead body. NLT 7 even if their own father, mother, brother, or sister has died. They must not defile the hair on their head, because it is the symbol of their separation to God. NIV 7 Even if his own father or mother or brother or sister dies, he must not make himself ceremonially unclean on account of them, because the symbol of his separation to God is on his head. NLT 8 This applies as long as they are set apart to the LORD." NIV 8 Throughout the period of his separation he is consecrated to the LORD. NLT 9 "If their hair is defiled because someone suddenly falls dead beside them, they must wait for seven days and then shave their heads. Then they will be cleansed from their defilement. NIV 9 " 'If someone dies suddenly in his presence, thus defiling the hair he has dedicated, he must shave his head on the day of his cleansing--the seventh day. NLT 10 On the eighth day they must bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the priest at the entrance of the Tabernacle. NIV 10 Then on the eighth day he must bring two doves or two young pigeons to the priest at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. NLT 11 The priest will offer one of the birds for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. In this way, he will make atonement for the guilt they incurred from the dead body. Then they must renew their vow that day and let their hair begin to grow again. NIV 11 The priest is to offer one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering to make atonement for him because he sinned by being in the presence of the dead body. That same day he is to consecrate his head. NLT 12 The days of their vow that were completed before their defilement no longer count. They must rededicate themselves to the LORD for the full term of their vow, and each must bring a one-year-old male lamb for a guilt offering." NIV 12 He must dedicate himself to the LORD for the period of his separation and must bring a year-old male lamb as a guilt offering. The previous days do not count, because he became defiled during his separation. NLT 13 "This is the ritual law of the Nazirites. At the conclusion of their time of separation as Nazirites, they must each go to the entrance of the Tabernacle NIV 13 " 'Now this is the law for the Nazirite when the period of his separation is over. He is to be brought to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. NLT 14 and offer these sacrifices to the LORD: a one-year-old male lamb without defect for a burnt offering, a one-year-old female lamb without defect for a sin offering, a ram without defect for a peace offering, NIV 14 There he is to present his offerings to the LORD: a year-old male lamb without defect for a burnt offering, a year-old ewe lamb without defect for a sin offering, a ram without defect for a fellowship offering, NLT 15 a basket of bread made without yeast -- cakes of choice flour mixed with olive oil and wafers spread with olive oil -- along with their prescribed grain offerings and drink offerings. NIV 15 together with their grain offerings and drink offerings, and a basket of bread made without yeast--cakes made of fine flour mixed with oil, and wafers spread with oil. NLT 16 The priest will present these offerings before the LORD: first the sin offering and the burnt offering; NIV 16 " 'The priest is to present them before the LORD and make the sin offering and the burnt offering. NLT 17 then the ram for a peace offering, along with the basket of bread made without yeast. The priest must also make the prescribed grain offering and drink offering." NIV 17 He is to present the basket of unleavened bread and is to sacrifice the ram as a fellowship offering to the LORD, together with its grain offering and drink offering. NLT 18 "Then the Nazirites will shave their hair at the entrance of the Tabernacle and put it on the fire beneath the peace-offering sacrifice. NIV 18 " 'Then at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, the Nazirite must shave off the hair that he dedicated. He is to take the hair and put it in the fire that is under the sacrifice of the fellowship offering. NLT 19 After each Nazirite's head has been shaved, the priest will take for each of them the boiled shoulder of the ram, one cake made without yeast, and one wafer made without yeast, and put them all into the Nazirite's hands. NIV 19 " 'After the Nazirite has shaved off the hair of his dedication, the priest is to place in his hands a boiled shoulder of the ram, and a cake and a wafer from the basket, both made without yeast. NLT 20 The priest will then lift the gifts up before the LORD in a gesture of offering. These are holy portions for the priest, along with the breast and thigh pieces that were lifted up before the LORD. After this ceremony the Nazirites may again drink wine." NIV 20 The priest shall then wave them before the LORD as a wave offering; they are holy and belong to the priest, together with the breast that was waved and the thigh that was presented. After that, the Nazirite may drink wine. NLT 21 "This is the ritual law of the Nazirites. If any Nazirites have vowed to give the LORD anything else beyond what is required by their normal Nazirite vow, they must fulfill their special vow exactly as they have promised." NIV 21 " 'This is the law of the Nazirite who vows his offering to the LORD in accordance with his separation, in addition to whatever else he can afford. He must fulfill the vow he has made, according to the law of the Nazirite.' " NLT 22 Then the LORD said to Moses, NIV 22 The LORD said to Moses, NLT 23 "Instruct Aaron and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing: NIV 23 "Tell Aaron and his sons, 'This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: NLT 24 'May the LORD bless you and protect you. NIV 24 " ' "The LORD bless you and keep you; NLT 25 May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. NIV 25 the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; NLT 26 May the LORD show you his favor and give you his peace.' NIV 26 the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace." ' NLT 27 This is how Aaron and his sons will designate the Israelites as my people, and I myself will bless them." NIV 27 "So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them."
