They shall not make (A)bald parts upon their head, nor shave off the locks of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.

They shall be holy unto their God, and not pollute the Name of their God: for the sacrifices of the Lord made by fire, and the bread of their God they do offer: therefore they shall be holy.

They shall not take to wife an whore, or [a]one polluted, neither shall they marry a woman divorced from her husband: for such one is holy unto his God.
