Separate yourself for the Lord - Numbers 6

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 

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:  Numbers 6:1 - 2.

Numbers 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. 

Numbers 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 husk. 

Numbers 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. 

Numbers 6:6 All the days  that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at  no dead body. 

Numbers 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 head. 

Numbers 6:8 All the days of his separation he is  holy unto the LORD. 

Numbers 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. 

Numbers 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: 

Numbers 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. 

Numbers 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.  

Numbers 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: 

Numbers 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, 

Numbers 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 offerings.  

Numbers 6:16 And the priest shall bring them before the LORD,  and shall offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering:  

Numbers 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. 

Numbers 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. 

Numbers 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: 

Numbers 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 drink wine. 

Numbers 6:21 This is the  law of the Nazarite who hath vowed, and of 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.   

Numbers 6:22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 

Numbers 6:23  Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye  shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, 

Numbers 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: 

Numbers 6:25 The LORD  make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:  

Numbers 6:26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and  give thee peace. 

Numbers 6:27 And they shall put my name upon  the children of Israel; and I will bless them.
