Numbers Chapter 6

Numbers 6

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:

3He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.

4All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

5All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.

6All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body.

7He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his God is upon his head.

8All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

9And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it.

10And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

11And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement for him, for that he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow his head that same day.

12And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a trespass offering: but the days that were before shall be lost, because his separation was defiled.

13And this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

14And he shall offer his offering unto the LORD, one he lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt offering, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin offering, and one ram without blemish for peace offerings,

15And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, and wafers of unleavened bread anointed with oil, and their meat offering, and their drink offerings.

16And the priest shall bring them before the LORD, and shall offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering:

17And he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread: the priest shall offer also his meat offering, and his drink offering.

18And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his separation at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall take the hair of the head of his separation, and put it in the fire which is under the sacrifice of the peace offerings.

19And the priest shall take the sodden 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 the hair of his separation is shaven:

20And the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD: this is holy for the priest, with the wave breast and heave shoulder: and after that the Nazarite may drink wine.

21This is the law of the Nazarite who hath vowed, and of his offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside that that his hand shall get: according to the vow which he vowed, so he must do after the law of his separation.

22And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

24The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

25The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

27And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

  1. 1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:

    The vow of the Nazarite was a vow of separation, set aside for the Lord, not like other people, a holy sanction. Samson had taken the vow of the Nazarite and we know the story, he broke all the vows including the final vow that humbled him-the cutting of his hair. We no longer hold to this vow but we are called unto separation into holiness for the purpose of the Lord. That’s why I do not live or look like other women because I have vowed to worship God in holiness that separates me from the rest of the world. We know from reading previous chapters that the Lord is very serious when it comes to separating clean from unclean. Naturally, as the children of God we should be called a peculiar people, separated from the lifestyle and uncleanliness from the world. Can a dirty towel clean a dirty floor? No! Neither can an unclean “christian” witness to a person who does not know God. Without spot or wrinkle, this is what is required… iron out your spirit everyday; walk in holiness!

  2. 24The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

    25The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

    26The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

    27And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

  3. v24-27 “The LORD BLESS YOU”
    We are not only to receive this blessing
    but bless others too, above all to bless
    The LORD.
    The psalmist David said…
    ” I will bless The Lord” As we minister unto the LORD, HE will bless it.
    Bringing a cup of water in JESUS NAME
    ( you’re ministering) HE will bless you!
    GOD BLESS YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY!

  4. A blessing was one way of asking for God’s divine favor to rest upon others. The ancient blessing in these verses helps us understand what a blessing was supposed to do. Its five parts conveyed hope that God would: bless and keep them (favor and protect); make his face shine upon them (be pleased); be gracious (merciful and compassionate); turn his face toward them (give his approval); give peace. When we ask God to bless others or ourself, we are asking him to do these five things. The blessing we offer will not only help the one receiving it, it will also demonstrate love, encourage others, and provide a model of caring to others.

  5. With every gift we are offered from Christ there is something required of us first. With the gift of salvation we must repent, be baptized in Jesus name for the remission of sins, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. Also the word tells us tha tthe Lord will rebuke the devourer if we tithe and give offerings, but this is contingent on the fact that we must faithfully give first. Here is no different we are told of wonderful blessings, but first we must become separated from sin, and not live as the world does.

  6. THE BLESSING OF SEPARATION

    8 All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

    When either man or woman . . . shall vow a vow of a Nazarite–that is, “a separated one,” from a Hebrew word, “to separate.” It was used to designate a class of persons who, under the impulse of extraordinary piety and with a view to higher degrees of religious improvement, voluntarily renounced the occupations and pleasures of the world to dedicate themselves unreservedly to the divine service.

    What a choice! Choose this day who you will serve; separate yourself to. A result of Israel’s obedience was the Power of the spoken BLESSING on the people of GOD.

    24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
    25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
    26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
    27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

    iGive myself to JESUS

  7. 22 Then the Lord said to Moses,
    23 “Tell Aaron and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing:

    24 ‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.
    25 May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.
    26 May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’

    27 Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.” (NLT)

  8. this chapter speaks of separation and how it keeps us Holy unto the Lord. It also shows us that separation comes costly yet it’s worth it.

  9. The challenge of separation does not come when we are with our brothers and sisters, but when we are stuck in the middle of the world by ourselves. When the world surrounds you and you are the only one who knows the truth among them, will you still be separate or will you just follow the crowd? Separation us a test that comes daily, a daily vow to God that

  10. God has always had a separated people on purpose. We all have a choice, we can choose to honor the Lord through holiness and separation, or we can choose to follow the trends of the world. My mind goes back to be ye Holy as I am Holy. If we to be Christ like, then we must be willing to be like Christ. He traded his own life as a sacrifice for us, how much more we should be willing to trade our life for a separated life for Him. He’s not asking us to die physically, just to our own will and way and gain life everlasting. What a trade!

  11. The Nazarite vow reminds me of our yearly fast coming up. A special time of consecration and sacrifice, of dedication and purification. Our fast can bring great opportunity with the Lord if we let it. Right attitude and action turns a week of deprivation into a week of consecration.

  12. 8All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

    Separate and Holy, what a way to be. True Christians are not just ordinary people, we are God’s chosen. Set apart, so that we may be more like our father.

  13. This chapter illustrates devotion. The “vow a vow of a Nazarite” undertook was one of devotion, which one could learn much from. We are devoted to what we want to be, no one and/or nothing other than what we allow will change that. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  14. This is my prayer… That his name will always be upon me. As his child his name on me gives me inheritance and puts me in line for a blessing! 

  15. In the CEV the end of the chapter reads…..

    The Blessing for the People

    22The LORD told Moses, 23″ When Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel, they must say:

    24I pray that the LORD

    will bless and protect you,

    25and that he will show you mercy

    and kindness.

    26May the LORD be good to you

    and give you peace.”

    27Then the LORD said, ” If Aaron and his sons ask me to bless the Israelites, I will give them my blessing.”
