“Priests may not make bald spots on their heads, shave the edge of their beards, or make gashes on their bodies.(A) They are to be holy to their God and not profane the name of their God.(B) For they present the fire offerings to Yahweh, the food of their God, and they must be holy. They are not to marry a woman defiled by prostitution.[a](C) They are not to marry one divorced(D) by her husband, for the priest is holy to his God.
