Condition of Service - Leviticus 21

And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto the  priests the sons of Aaron, and say unto them, There shall  none be defiled for the dead among his people:  Leviticus 21:1 KJV

Leviticus 21:2 But  for his kin, that is near unto him, that is, for his mother,  and for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and  for his brother, 

Leviticus 21:3 And for his sister a virgin, that is  nigh unto him, which hath had no husband; for her may he  be defiled. 

Leviticus 21:4 But he shall not defile himself, being  a chief man among his people, to profane himself. 

Leviticus 21:5  They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall  they shave off the 
corner of their beard, nor make any  cuttings in their flesh. 

Leviticus 21:6 They shall be holy unto their  God, and not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their  God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy. 

Leviticus 21:7  They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane;  neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband:  for he is holy unto his God. 

Leviticus 21:8 Thou shalt sanctify  him therefore; for he offereth the bread of thy God: he shall  be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify you, am  holy.   

Leviticus 21:9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profane  herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she  shall be burnt with fire. 

Leviticus 21:10 And he that is the high  priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing  oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the  garments, shall not uncover 
his head, nor rend his clothes;  

Leviticus 21:11 Neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile  himself for his father, or for his mother; 

Leviticus 21:12 Neither  shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary  of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is  upon him: I am the LORD. 

Leviticus 21:13 And he shall take a  wife in her virginity. 

Leviticus 21:14 A widow, or a divorced  woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he not 
take:  but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife. 

Leviticus 21:15  Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I the  LORD do sanctify him.  

Leviticus 21:16 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  

Leviticus 21:17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of  thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him  not approach to offer the bread of his God. 

Leviticus 21:18 For  whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not  approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose,  or any thing superfluous, 

Leviticus 21:19 Or a man that is  broken footed, or brokenhanded, 

Leviticus 21:20 Or crookbackt, or  a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or  scabbed, or hath his stones broken; 

Leviticus 21:21 No man that  hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come  nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he  hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of  his God. 

Leviticus 21:22 He shall eat the bread of his God, both  of the most holy, and of the holy. 

Leviticus 21:23 Only he shall not  go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he  hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the  LORD do sanctify them. 

Leviticus 21:24 And Moses told it unto  Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel.
