21:2 But for his kin [H7607] , that is near [H7138] unto him, [that is], for his mother [H517] , and for his father [H1] , and for his son [H1121] , and for his daughter [H1323] , and for his brother [H251] ,

21:3 And for his sister [H269] a virgin [H1330] , that is nigh [H7138] unto him, which hath had no husband [H376] ; for her may he be defiled [H2930] .

21:4 [But] he shall not defile [H2930] himself, [being] a chief man [H1167] among his people [H5971] , to profane [H2490] himself.(he: or, being an husband among his people, he shall not defile himself for his wife, etc)

21:8 Thou shalt sanctify [H6942] him therefore; for he offereth [H7126] the bread [H3899] of thy God [H430] : he shall be holy [H6918] unto thee: for I the LORD [H3068] , which sanctify [H6942] you, [am] holy [H6918] .

21:9 And the daughter [H1323] of any [H376] priest [H3548] , if she profane [H2490] herself by playing the whore [H2181] , she profaneth [H2490] her father [H1] : she shall be burnt [H8313] with fire [H784] .

21:11 Neither shall he go in [H935] to any dead [H4191] body [H5315] , nor defile [H2930] himself for his father [H1] , or for his mother [H517] ;

21:12 Neither shall he go out [H3318] of the sanctuary [H4720] , nor profane [H2490] the sanctuary [H4720] of his God [H430] ; for the crown [H5145] of the anointing [H4888] oil [H8081] of his God [H430] [is] upon him: I [am] the LORD [H3068] .

21:13 And he shall take [H3947] a wife [H802] in her virginity [H1331] .

21:14 A widow [H490] , or a divorced woman [H1644] , or profane [H2491] , [or] an harlot [H2181] , these shall he not take [H3947] : but he shall take [H3947] a virgin [H1330] of his own people [H5971] to wife [H802] .

21:15 Neither shall he profane [H2490] his seed [H2233] among his people [H5971] : for I the LORD [H3068] do sanctify [H6942] him.

21:16 And the LORD [H3068] spake [H1696] unto Moses [H4872] , saying [H559] ,

21:18 For whatsoever man [H376] [he be] that hath a blemish [H3971] , he shall not approach [H7126] : a blind [H5787] man [H376] , or a lame [H6455] , or he that hath a flat nose [H2763] , or any thing superfluous [H8311] ,

21:21 No man [H376] that hath a blemish [H3971] of the seed [H2233] of Aaron [H175] the priest [H3548] shall come nigh [H5066] to offer [H7126] the offerings [H801] of the LORD [H3068] made by fire [H801] : he hath a blemish [H3971] ; he shall not come nigh [H5066] to offer [H7126] the bread [H3899] of his God [H430] .

21:22 He shall eat [H398] the bread [H3899] of his God [H430] , [both] of the most [H6944] holy [H6944] , and of the holy [H6944] .

21:23 Only he shall not go in [H935] unto the vail [H6532] , nor come nigh [H5066] unto the altar [H4196] , because he hath a blemish [H3971] ; that he profane [H2490] not my sanctuaries [H4720] : for I the LORD [H3068] do sanctify [H6942] them.

21:24 And Moses [H4872] told [H1696] [it] unto Aaron [H175] , and to his sons [H1121] , and unto all the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] .
