Leviticus 21 - AMP

2 Except for his near kin, for his mother, father, son, daughter, brother, 3 And for his sister, a virgin, who is near to him because she has had no husband; for her he may be defiled. 4 He shall not even defile himself, being a husband or being a chief man among his people, and so profane himself. 5 The priests shall not shave the crown of their heads or clip off the corners of their beard or make any cuttings in their flesh. 6 They shall be holy to their God and not profane the name of their God; for they offer the offerings made by fire to the Lord, the bread of their God; therefore they shall be holy. 7 They shall not take a wife who is a harlot or polluted or profane or divorced, for is holy to his God. 8 You shall consecrate him therefore, for he offers the bread of your God; he shall be holy to you, for I the Lord Who sanctifies you am holy. 9 The daughter of any priest who profanes herself by playing the harlot profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire . 10 But he who is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured and who is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not let the hair of his head hang loose or rend his clothes , 11 Neither shall he go in where any dead body lies nor defile himself for his father or for his mother; 12 Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary nor desecrate or make ceremonially unclean the sanctuary of his God, for the crown or consecration of the anointing oil of his God is upon him. I am the Lord. 13 He shall take a wife in her virginity. 14 A widow or a divorced woman or a woman who is polluted or profane or a harlot, these he shall not marry, but he shall take as his wife a virgin of his own people, 15 That he may not profane or dishonor his children among his people; for I the Lord do sanctify the high priest. 16 And the Lord said to Moses, 17 Say to Aaron, Any one of your sons in their successive generations who has any blemish, let him not come near to offer the bread of his God. 18 For no man who has a blemish shall approach , a man blind or lame, or he who has a disfigured face or a limb too long, 19 Or who has a fractured foot or hand, 20 Or is a hunchback, or a dwarf, or has a defect in his eye, or has scurvy or itch, or scabs or skin trouble, or has damaged testicles. 21 No man of the offspring of Aaron the priest who has a blemish and is disfigured or deformed shall come near to offer the offerings of the Lord made by fire. He has a blemish; he shall not come near to offer the bread of his God. 22 He may eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy and of the holy things, 23 But he shall not come within the veil or come near the altar , because he has a blemish, that he may not desecrate and make unclean My sanctuaries and hallowed things; for I the Lord do sanctify them. 24 And Moses told it to Aaron and to his sons and to all the Israelites.
