6:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
6:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a
vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:
6:3 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink,
and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong
drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat
moist grapes, or dried.
6:4 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing
that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the
6:5 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall
no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in
the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be
holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.
6:6 All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD
he shall come at no dead body.
6:7 He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or
for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when
they die: because the consecration of his God is upon his

6:9 And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath
defiled the head of his consecration; then he shall shave
his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day
shall he shave it.
6:10 And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or
two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation:
6:11 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering,
and the other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement
for him, for that he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow
his head that same day.
6:12 And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his
separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a
trespass offering: but the days that were before shall be
lost, because his separation was defiled.
6:13 And this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of
his separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation:
6:14 And he shall offer his offering unto the LORD, one he
lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt offering,
and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin
offering, and one ram without blemish for peace offerings,
6:15 And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour
mingled with oil, and wafers of unleavened bread anointed
with oil, and their meat offering, and their drink
6:16 And the priest shall bring them before the LORD, and
shall offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering:
6:17 And he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace
offerings unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened
bread: the priest shall offer also his meat offering, and
his drink offering.
6:18 And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his
separation at the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation, and shall take the hair of the head of his
separation, and put it in the fire which is under the
sacrifice of the peace offerings.
6:19 And the priest shall take the sodden shoulder of the
ram, and one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one
unleavened wafer, and shall put them upon the hands of the
Nazarite, after the hair of his separation is shaven:
6:20 And the priest shall wave them for a wave offering
before the LORD: this is holy for the priest, with the wave
breast and heave shoulder: and after that the Nazarite may

his offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside that
that his hand shall get: according to the vow which he
vowed, so he must do after the law of his separation.

wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto

gracious unto thee:
