24 But I have said to you, You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess it, a land flowing with milk and honey. I am Jehovah your God, who has separated you from the peoples.
25 You shall therefore make a distinction between the clean beast and the unclean, and between the unclean bird and the clean, and you shall not make your souls abominable by any beast or by any bird or by anything that creeps on the ground, which I have separated for you as unclean.
26 And you shall be holy to Me, because I Jehovah am holy, and I have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine.
27 If there is a man or a woman who is a medium or a spiritist, they shall surely be put to death. They shall stone them with stones; their blood shall be upon them.
1 And Jehovah said to Moses, Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say to them, No one shall defile himself for a dead person among his people,
2 Except for his flesh who is near to him, for his mother and for his father and for his son and for his daughter and for his brother
3 And for his virgin sister, who is near to him, who has had no husband; for her he may defile himself.
4 He shall not defile himself, as a leader among his people, so as to profane himself.
5 They shall not make any baldness on their head or shave off the edges of their beard or make any cuttings in their flesh.
6 They shall be holy to their God, and they shall not profane the name of their God, for they present Jehovah’s offerings by fire, the food of their God; therefore they shall be holy.
7 They shall not take a woman who is a harlot or profaned, nor shall they take a woman put away from her husband; for the priest is holy to his God.
8 You shall sanctify him therefore, for he presents the food of your God. He shall be holy to you, for I Jehovah, who sanctifies you, am holy.
9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself through prostitution, she profanes her father; she shall be burnt with fire.
10 And he who is the high priest among his brothers, on whose head the anointing oil has been poured and who has filled his hands to put on the garments, shall not let the hair of his head go loose nor tear his clothes.
11 Neither shall he approach any dead person nor defile himself even for his father or for his mother.
12 Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary nor profane the sanctuary of his God, for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God is upon him; I am Jehovah.
13 And he shall take a wife in her virginity.
14 A widow or a divorced woman or a profaned woman, a harlot, these he shall not take; but rather a virgin of his own people he shall take as wife.
15 And he shall not profane his seed among his people, for I am Jehovah who sanctifies him.
