Num 6:1-14

The Nazirites 1The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:2Speak to the Israelites and say to them: When either men or women make a special vow, the vow of a nazirite, to separate themselves to the Lord,3they shall separate themselves from wine and strong drink; they shall drink no wine vinegar or other vinegar, and shall not drink any grape juice or eat grapes, fresh or dried.4All their days as nazirites they shall eat nothing that is produced by the grapevine, not even the seeds or the skins.5All the days of their nazirite vow no razor shall come upon the head; until the time is completed for which they separate themselves to the Lord, they shall be holy; they shall let the locks of the head grow long.6All the days that they separate themselves to the Lord they shall not go near a corpse.7Even if their father or mother, brother or sister, should die, they may not defile themselves; because their consecration to God is upon the head.8All their days as nazirites they are holy to the Lord.9If someone dies very suddenly nearby, defiling the consecrated head, then they shall shave the head on the day of their cleansing; on the seventh day they shall shave it.10On the eighth day they shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the priest at the entrance of the tent of meeting,11and the priest shall offer one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering, and make atonement for them, because they incurred guilt by reason of the corpse. They shall sanctify the head that same day,12and separate themselves to the Lord for their days as nazirites, and bring a male lamb a year old as a guilt offering. The former time shall be void, because the consecrated head was defiled.13This is the law for the nazirites when the time of their consecration has been completed: they shall be brought to the entrance of the tent of meeting,14and they shall offer their gift to the Lord, one male lamb a year old without blemish as a burnt offering, one ewe lamb a year old without blemish as a sin offering, one ram without blemish as an offering of well-being,
