וַיְדַבֵּ֥ר יְהוָ֖ה אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֥ה לֵּאמֹֽר׃
And the L-rd spoke to Moses, saying:
דַּבֵּר֙ אֶל־בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל וְאָמַרְתָּ֖ אֲלֵהֶ֑ם אִ֣ישׁ אֽוֹ־אִשָּׁ֗ה כִּ֤י יַפְלִא֙ לִנְדֹּר֙ נֶ֣דֶר נָזִ֔יר לְהַזִּ֖יר לַֽיהוָֽה׃
Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: A man or a woman, if he utter a vow, the vow of a Nazirite [lit., "one who separates himself"] to separate himself [from wine] unto the L-rd [i.e., for the sake of Heaven], [(The rationale of the juxtaposition of verses — "All who witness a sotah (a woman suspected of infidelity) in her undoing should separate themselves from wine," wine inciting to licentiousness)],
מִיַּ֤יִן וְשֵׁכָר֙ יַזִּ֔יר חֹ֥מֶץ יַ֛יִן וְחֹ֥מֶץ שֵׁכָ֖ר לֹ֣א יִשְׁתֶּ֑ה וְכָל־מִשְׁרַ֤ת עֲנָבִים֙ לֹ֣א יִשְׁתֶּ֔ה וַעֲנָבִ֛ים לַחִ֥ים וִיבֵשִׁ֖ים לֹ֥א יֹאכֵֽל׃
From [new] wine and shechar [old (lit., "intoxicating") wine] he shall separate himself. Vinegar of wine and vinegar of shechar he shall not drink; and any steeping of grapes he shall not drink, and grapes, wet or dry, he shall not eat.
כֹּ֖ל יְמֵ֣י נִזְר֑וֹ מִכֹּל֩ אֲשֶׁ֨ר יֵעָשֶׂ֜ה מִגֶּ֣פֶן הַיַּ֗יִן מֵחַרְצַנִּ֛ים וְעַד־זָ֖ג לֹ֥א יֹאכֵֽל׃
All the days of his Naziritism, of all that is made from the grapevine, from the kernels to the husk, he shall not eat.
כָּל־יְמֵי֙ נֶ֣דֶר נִזְר֔וֹ תַּ֖עַר לֹא־יַעֲבֹ֣ר עַל־רֹאשׁ֑וֹ עַד־מְלֹ֨את הַיָּמִ֜ם אֲשֶׁר־יַזִּ֤יר לַיהוָה֙ קָדֹ֣שׁ יִהְיֶ֔ה גַּדֵּ֥ל פֶּ֖רַע שְׂעַ֥ר רֹאשֽׁוֹ׃
All the days of the vow of his Naziritism a blade shall not pass over his head. Until the fulfillment of the days of his Naziritism to the L-rd, holy shall it [his hair] be [by his] letting grow long the growth [pera ("pera" is not less than thirty days)] of the hair of his head.
כָּל־יְמֵ֥י הַזִּיר֖וֹ לַיהוָ֑ה עַל־נֶ֥פֶשׁ מֵ֖ת לֹ֥א יָבֹֽא׃
All the days of his Naziritism to the L-rd, by a dead body he shall not come.
לְאָבִ֣יו וּלְאִמּ֗וֹ לְאָחִיו֙ וּלְאַ֣חֹת֔וֹ לֹא־יִטַּמָּ֥א לָהֶ֖ם בְּמֹתָ֑ם כִּ֛י נֵ֥זֶר אֱלֹהָ֖יו עַל־רֹאשֽׁוֹ׃
For his father and for his mother, for his brother and for his sister, he shall not make himself unclean for them in their death, for the crown of his G-d is on his head.
כֹּ֖ל יְמֵ֣י נִזְר֑וֹ קָדֹ֥שׁ ה֖וּא לַֽיהוָֽה׃
All the days of his Naziritism, holy is he to the L-rd [("holiness" of body — not making himself unclean for the dead)].
וְכִֽי־יָמ֨וּת מֵ֤ת עָלָיו֙ בְּפֶ֣תַע פִּתְאֹ֔ם וְטִמֵּ֖א רֹ֣אשׁ נִזְר֑וֹ וְגִלַּ֤ח רֹאשׁוֹ֙ בְּי֣וֹם טָהֳרָת֔וֹ בַּיּ֥וֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִ֖י יְגַלְּחֶֽנּוּ׃
And if any man die on him [in the tent where he finds himself], of an instant, unexpectedly, and he make unclean the head of his Naziritism, then he shall shave his head on the day of his cleansing [i.e., sprinkling (of the waters of the red heifer, 19:17)]; on the seventh day shall he shave it.
וּבַיּ֣וֹם הַשְּׁמִינִ֗י יָבִא֙ שְׁתֵּ֣י תֹרִ֔ים א֥וֹ שְׁנֵ֖י בְּנֵ֣י יוֹנָ֑ה אֶל־הַכֹּהֵ֔ן אֶל־פֶּ֖תַח אֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד׃
And on the eighth day [i.e., from the eighth day on], he shall bring two turtle-doves or two young pigeons to the Cohein, to the door of the tent of meeting.
וְעָשָׂ֣ה הַכֹּהֵ֗ן אֶחָ֤ד לְחַטָּאת֙ וְאֶחָ֣ד לְעֹלָ֔ה וְכִפֶּ֣ר עָלָ֔יו מֵאֲשֶׁ֥ר חָטָ֖א עַל־הַנָּ֑פֶשׁ וְקִדַּ֥שׁ אֶת־רֹאשׁ֖וֹ בַּיּ֥וֹם הַהֽוּא׃
And the Cohein shall offer one as a sin-offering and one as a burnt-offering, and he shall atone for him for having sinned through the (dead) body, and he shall hallow his head on that day [i.e., He shall begin again the count of his Naziritism].
וְהִזִּ֤יר לַֽיהוָה֙ אֶת־יְמֵ֣י נִזְר֔וֹ וְהֵבִ֛יא כֶּ֥בֶשׂ בֶּן־שְׁנָת֖וֹ לְאָשָׁ֑ם וְהַיָּמִ֤ים הָרִאשֹׁנִים֙ יִפְּל֔וּ כִּ֥י טָמֵ֖א נִזְרֽוֹ׃
And he shall consecrate [anew] to the L-rd the days of his Naziritism, and he shall bring a lamb of the first year as a guilt-offering, and the first days shall fall off [from the count] because he made unclean his Naziritism.
וְזֹ֥את תּוֹרַ֖ת הַנָּזִ֑יר בְּי֗וֹם מְלֹאת֙ יְמֵ֣י נִזְר֔וֹ יָבִ֣יא אֹת֔וֹ אֶל־פֶּ֖תַח אֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד׃
And this is the law of the Nazirite. On the day of the fulfillment of the days of his Naziritism, he shall bring himself to the door of the tent of meeting.
וְהִקְרִ֣יב אֶת־קָרְבָּנ֣וֹ לַיהוָ֡ה כֶּבֶשׂ֩ בֶּן־שְׁנָת֨וֹ תָמִ֤ים אֶחָד֙ לְעֹלָ֔ה וְכַבְשָׂ֨ה אַחַ֧ת בַּת־שְׁנָתָ֛הּ תְּמִימָ֖ה לְחַטָּ֑את וְאַֽיִל־אֶחָ֥ד תָּמִ֖ים לִשְׁלָמִֽים׃
And he shall offer up his sacrifice to the L-rd: one lamb of the first year without blemish as a burnt-offering, and one ewe-lamb of the first year without blemish as a sin-offering, and one ram without blemish as a peace-offering.
וְסַ֣ל מַצּ֗וֹת סֹ֤לֶת חַלֹּת֙ בְּלוּלֹ֣ת בַּשֶּׁ֔מֶן וּרְקִיקֵ֥י מַצּ֖וֹת מְשֻׁחִ֣ים בַּשָּׁ֑מֶן וּמִנְחָתָ֖ם וְנִסְכֵּיהֶֽם׃
And a basket of unleavened bread of fine flour, [ten] cakes [of unleavened bread] mixed with oil, and [ten] wafers of unleavened bread smeared with oil, and their [the burnt-offering's and the peace-offering's] meal-offering and their drink-offerings.
וְהִקְרִ֥יב הַכֹּהֵ֖ן לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה וְעָשָׂ֥ה אֶת־חַטָּאת֖וֹ וְאֶת־עֹלָתֽוֹ׃
And the Cohein shall present (them) before the L-rd, and he shall offer his sin-offering and his burnt-offering.
וְאֶת־הָאַ֜יִל יַעֲשֶׂ֨ה זֶ֤בַח שְׁלָמִים֙ לַֽיהוָ֔ה עַ֖ל סַ֣ל הַמַּצּ֑וֹת וְעָשָׂה֙ הַכֹּהֵ֔ן אֶת־מִנְחָת֖וֹ וְאֶת־נִסְכּֽוֹ׃
And the ram shall he offer as a sacrifice of peace-offerings to the L-rd for the basket of unleavened bread [i.e., he shall slaughter the peace-offerings with the intent of consecrating the bread], and the Cohein shall offer its [the ram's] meal-offering and its drink-offering.
וְגִלַּ֣ח הַנָּזִ֗יר פֶּ֛תַח אֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵ֖ד אֶת־רֹ֣אשׁ נִזְר֑וֹ וְלָקַ֗ח אֶת־שְׂעַר֙ רֹ֣אשׁ נִזְר֔וֹ וְנָתַן֙ עַל־הָאֵ֔שׁ אֲשֶׁר־תַּ֖חַת זֶ֥בַח הַשְּׁלָמִֽים׃
And the Nazirite shall shave — [outside the azarah, after the slaughtering of the peace-offerings, which took place] at the door of the tent of meeting — the head of his Naziritism. And he shall take the hair of the head of his Naziritism, and he shall place it on the fire under the sacrifice of the peace-offerings [i.e., under the cauldron (in the azarah) in which they are cooked (the Cohein being required to take the shoulder after it has been cooked and wave it before the L-rd)].
וְלָקַ֨ח הַכֹּהֵ֜ן אֶת־הַזְּרֹ֣עַ בְּשֵׁלָה֮ מִן־הָאַיִל֒ וְֽחַלַּ֨ת מַצָּ֤ה אַחַת֙ מִן־הַסַּ֔ל וּרְקִ֥יק מַצָּ֖ה אֶחָ֑ד וְנָתַן֙ עַל־כַּפֵּ֣י הַנָּזִ֔יר אַחַ֖ר הִֽתְגַּלְּח֥וֹ אֶת־נִזְרֽוֹ׃
And the Cohein shall take the cooked shoulder of the ram, and one unleavened cake from the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and he shall place them on the palms of the Nazirite after his shaving of (the head of) his Naziritism.
וְהֵנִיף֩ אוֹתָ֨ם הַכֹּהֵ֥ן ׀ תְּנוּפָה֮ לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָה֒ קֹ֤דֶשׁ הוּא֙ לַכֹּהֵ֔ן עַ֚ל חֲזֵ֣ה הַתְּנוּפָ֔ה וְעַ֖ל שׁ֣וֹק הַתְּרוּמָ֑ה וְאַחַ֛ר יִשְׁתֶּ֥ה הַנָּזִ֖יר יָֽיִן׃
And the Cohein shall wave them, a waving before the L-rd. It [(the cake, the wafer, and the shoulder)] is holy [i.e., terumah] to the Cohein, in addition to the breast of waving and the thigh of lifting, [which revert to the Cohein from all peace-offerings], and thereafter the Nazirite may drink wine.
זֹ֣את תּוֹרַ֣ת הַנָּזִיר֮ אֲשֶׁ֣ר יִדֹּר֒ קָרְבָּנ֤וֹ לַֽיהוָה֙ עַל־נִזְר֔וֹ מִלְּבַ֖ד אֲשֶׁר־תַּשִּׂ֣יג יָד֑וֹ כְּפִ֤י נִדְרוֹ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר יִדֹּ֔ר כֵּ֣ן יַעֲשֶׂ֔ה עַ֖ל תּוֹרַ֥ת נִזְרֽוֹ׃ (פ)
This is the law of the Nazirite who shall vow his offering to the L-rd for his Naziritism, aside from what his hand attains [i.e., if he vows more than the prescribed number of offerings, he must bring them.] According to the vow that he vows, thus shall he do above [(but not below)] the law of his Naziriteship [i.e., the prescribed number of offerings].
וַיְדַבֵּ֥ר יְהוָ֖ה אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֥ה לֵּאמֹֽר׃
And the L-rd spoke to Moses, saying:
דַּבֵּ֤ר אֶֽל־אַהֲרֹן֙ וְאֶל־בָּנָ֣יו לֵאמֹ֔ר כֹּ֥ה תְבָרֲכ֖וּ אֶת־בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל אָמ֖וֹר לָהֶֽם׃ (ס)
Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying: Thus shall you bless the children of Israel, saying [with full intent and with a whole heart] unto them, [so that they all hear]:
יְבָרֶכְךָ֥ יְהוָ֖ה וְיִשְׁמְרֶֽךָ׃ (ס)
The L-rd bless you [that your possessions increase] and keep you [that you not be despoiled of your possessions].
יָאֵ֨ר יְהוָ֧ה ׀ פָּנָ֛יו אֵלֶ֖יךָ וִֽיחֻנֶּֽךָּ׃ (ס)
The L-rd cause His countenance to shine upon you and grant you favor.
יִשָּׂ֨א יְהוָ֤ה ׀ פָּנָיו֙ אֵלֶ֔יךָ וְיָשֵׂ֥ם לְךָ֖ שָׁלֽוֹם׃ (ס)
The L-rd lift His countenance [i.e., quell His anger] unto you and grant you peace.
וְשָׂמ֥וּ אֶת־שְׁמִ֖י עַל־בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל וַאֲנִ֖י אֲבָרֲכֵֽם׃ (פ)
And they shall place My name [the Tetragrammaton] on the children of Israel, and I will bless them [i.e., I will "concur" in their blessing.]
