All the days that he hath consecrated himself to Jehovah, he shall come near no dead body.

And the priest shall present them before Jehovah, and shall offer his sin-offering and his burnt-offering: and he shall offer the ram, a sacrifice of peace-offering to Jehovah, with the basket of unleavened bread; the priest shall offer also his oblation and his drink-offering.

And the priest shall take the boiled shoulder of the ram, and one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and shall put them upon the hands of the Nazarite, after he hath shaven the hair of his consecration.
