Numbers 6:1-27, NLT
1Then the Lord said to Moses,
“If any of the people, either men or women, take the special vow of a Nazirite, setting themselves apart to the Lord in a special way,
5“They must never cut their hair throughout the time of their vow, for they are holy and set apart to the Lord. Until the time of their vow has been fulfilled, they must let their hair grow long.
9“If someone falls dead beside them, the hair they have dedicated will be defiled. They must wait for seven days and then shave their heads. Then they will be cleansed from their defilement.
13“This is the ritual law for Nazirites. At the conclusion of their time of separation as Nazirites, they must each go to the entrance of the Tabernacle
18“Then the Nazirites will shave their heads at the entrance of the Tabernacle. They will take the hair that had been dedicated and place it on the fire beneath the peace-offering sacrifice.
21“This is the ritual law of the Nazirites, who vow to bring these offerings to the Lord. They may also bring additional offerings if they can afford it. And they must be careful to do whatever they vowed when they set themselves apart as Nazirites.”
The Priestly Blessing
22Then the Lord said to Moses,
24‘May the Lord bless you
and protect you.
25May the Lord smile on you
and be gracious to you.
26May the Lord show you his favor
and give you his peace.’
27Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.”
