But the Lord told Moses, Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron Tell them not to be contaminated by a soul Of their people, all but their nearest and dearest— Their mother and father and son and daughter and brother, Their unmarried sister, for her he can become impure; But for some notable among his people he won’t become impure, or desecrate himself. They shan’t leave a bald spot on their heads or shave the tip of their beard Nor mutilate their flesh when they mourn; they’ll be preserved for their God And won’t desecrate the name of their God. . . . For he’s offering the daily bread to your God, He’ll be sacred to Me because I’m sacred, I’m the Lord who makes you sacred.
