1 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H4872 to Moses, H559 "Speak H3548 to the priests, H1121 the sons H175 of Aaron, H559 and say H2930 to them, ‘A priest shall not defile H5315 himself for the dead H5971 among his people;
2 H7607 except for his relatives H7138 that are near H517 to him: for his mother, H1 for his father, H1121 for his son, H1323 for his daughter, H251 for his brother,
3 H1330 and for his virgin H269 sister H7138 who is near H376 to him, who has had no husband; H2930 for her he may defile himself.
4 H2930 He shall not defile H1167 himself, being a chief man H5971 among his people, H2490 to profane himself.
5 H7144 "‘They shall not shave H7139 their H7218 heads, H1548 neither shall they shave off H6285 the corners H2206 of their beards, H8295 nor make H8296 any cuttings H1320 in their flesh.
6 H6944 They shall be holy H430 to their God, H2490 and not profane H8034 the name H430 of their God; H7126 for they offer H801 the offerings H3068 of Yahweh H801 made by fire, H3899 the bread H430 of their God; H6918 therefore they shall be holy.
7 H3947 "‘They shall not marry H802 a woman H2181 who is a prostitute, H2491 or profane; H3947 neither shall they marry H802 a woman H1644 divorced H376 from her husband: H6918 for he is holy H430 to his God.
8 H6942 You shall sanctify H7126 him therefore; for he offers H3899 the bread H430 of your God: H6918 he shall be holy H3068 to you: for I Yahweh, H6942 who sanctify H6918 you, am holy.
9 H1323 "‘The daughter H376 of any H3548 priest, H2490 if she profanes H2181 herself by playing the prostitute, H2490 she profanes H1 her father: H8313 she shall be burned H784 with fire.
10 H1419 "‘He who is the high H3548 priest H251 among his brothers, H7218 upon whose head H4888 the anointing H8081 oil H3332 is poured, H4390 and that is consecrated H3847 to put H899 on the garments, H7218 shall not let the hair of his head H6544 hang loose, H6533 nor tear H899 his clothes;
11 H935 neither shall he go in H4191 to any dead H5315 body, H2930 nor defile H1 himself for his father, H517 or for his mother;
12 H3318 neither shall he go out H4720 of the sanctuary, H2490 nor profane H4720 the sanctuary H430 of his God; H5145 for the crown H4888 of the anointing H8081 oil H430 of his God H3068 is upon him. I am Yahweh.
14 H490 A widow, H1644 or one divorced, or a woman H2181 who has been defiled, or a prostitute, H1330 these he shall not marry: but a virgin H5971 of his own people H802 shall he take as a wife.
15 H2490 He shall not profane H2233 his seed H5971 among his people: H3068 for I am Yahweh H6942 who sanctifies him.'"
17 H1696 "Say H175 to Aaron, H376 ‘None H2233 of your seed H1755 throughout their generations H3971 who has a blemish, H7126 may approach H7126 to offer H3899 the bread H430 of his God.
18 H376 For whatever man H3971 he is that has a blemish, H7126 he shall not draw H5787 near: a blind H376 man, H6455 or a lame, H2763 or he who has a flat nose, H8311 or any deformity,
20 H1384 or hunchbacked, H1851 or a dwarf, H8400 or one who has a defect H5869 in his eye, H1618 or an itching disease, H3217 or scabs, H4790 or who has damaged H810 testicles;
21 H376 no man H2233 of the seed H175 of Aaron H3548 the priest H3971 who has a blemish, H5066 shall come near H7126 to offer H801 the offerings H3068 of Yahweh H801 made by fire. H3971 Since he has a blemish, H5066 he shall not come near H7126 to offer H3899 the bread H430 of his God.
22 H398 He shall eat H3899 the bread H430 of his God, H6944 both of the most H6944 holy, H6944 and of the holy.
23 H935 He shall not come near H6532 to the veil, H5066 nor come near H4196 to the altar, H3971 because he has a blemish; H2490 that he may not profane H4720 my sanctuaries, H3068 for I am Yahweh H6942 who sanctifies them.'"
