drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither
shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or

of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.
6:5 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor

separates [himself] unto the LORD, he shall be holy, [and] shall
let the locks of the hair of his head grow.

come at no dead body.

mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die because
the consecration of his God [is] upon his head.
6:8 All the days of his separation he [is] holy unto the LORD.

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
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.

his separation are fulfilled he shall be brought unto the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation

shall offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering

offerings unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread the
priest shall offer also his meat offering, and his drink

[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 boiled 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

before the LORD this [is] holy for the priest, with the wave
breast and heave shoulder and after that the Nazarite may drink

of] his offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside [that]
