Torah Trek 78 “I the LORD who sanctify you am holy”

Leviticus 21

ח וְקִדַּשְׁתּוֹ–כִּי-אֶת-לֶחֶם אֱלֹהֶיךָ, הוּא מַקְרִיב; קָדֹשׁ, יִהְיֶה-לָּךְ–כִּי קָדוֹשׁ, אֲנִי יְהוָה מְקַדִּשְׁכֶם. 8

Thou shalt sanctify him therefore;

for he offereth the bread of thy God;

he shall be holy unto thee;

for I the LORD, who sanctify you, am holy.

ט וּבַת אִישׁ כֹּהֵן, כִּי תֵחֵל לִזְנוֹת–אֶת-אָבִיהָ הִיא מְחַלֶּלֶת, בָּאֵשׁ תִּשָּׂרֵף. {ס} 9

And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the harlot, she profaneth her father:

she shall be burnt with fire. {S}

י וְהַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדוֹל מֵאֶחָיו אֲשֶׁר-יוּצַק עַל-רֹאשׁוֹ שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וּמִלֵּא אֶת-יָדוֹ, לִלְבֹּשׁ, אֶת-הַבְּגָדִים–אֶת-רֹאשׁוֹ לֹא יִפְרָע, וּבְגָדָיו לֹא יִפְרֹם. 10

And the priest that is highest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil is poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not let the hair of his head go loose, nor rend his clothes;

יא וְעַל כָּל-נַפְשֹׁת מֵת, לֹא יָבֹא: לְאָבִיו וּלְאִמּוֹ, לֹא יִטַּמָּא. 11

neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his father, or for his mother;

יב וּמִן-הַמִּקְדָּשׁ, לֹא יֵצֵא, וְלֹא יְחַלֵּל, אֵת מִקְדַּשׁ אֱלֹהָיו: כִּי נֵזֶר שֶׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת אֱלֹהָיו, עָלָיו–אֲנִי יְהוָה. 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 the LORD.

יג וְהוּא, אִשָּׁה בִבְתוּלֶיהָ יִקָּח. 13

And he shall take a wife in her virginity.

יד אַלְמָנָה וּגְרוּשָׁה וַחֲלָלָה זֹנָה, אֶת-אֵלֶּה לֹא יִקָּח: כִּי אִם-בְּתוּלָה מֵעַמָּיו, יִקַּח אִשָּׁה. 14

A widow, or one divorced, or a profaned woman, or a harlot, these shall he not take;

but a virgin of his own people shall he take to wife.

טו וְלֹא-יְחַלֵּל זַרְעוֹ, בְּעַמָּיו: כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה, מְקַדְּשׁוֹ. {ס} 15

And he shall not profane his seed among his people;

for I am the LORD who sanctify him. {S}

טז וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 16

And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

יז דַּבֵּר אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, לֵאמֹר: אִישׁ מִזַּרְעֲךָ לְדֹרֹתָם, אֲשֶׁר יִהְיֶה בוֹ מוּם–לֹא יִקְרַב, לְהַקְרִיב לֶחֶם אֱלֹהָיו. 17

Speak unto Aaron, saying:

Whosoever he be of thy seed throughout their generations that hath a blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.

יח כִּי כָל-אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ מוּם, לֹא יִקְרָב: אִישׁ עִוֵּר אוֹ פִסֵּחַ, אוֹ חָרֻם אוֹ שָׂרוּעַ. 18

For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach:

a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath any thing maimed, or anything too long,

יט אוֹ אִישׁ, אֲשֶׁר-יִהְיֶה בוֹ שֶׁבֶר רָגֶל, אוֹ, שֶׁבֶר יָד. 19

or a man that is broken-footed, or broken-handed,

כ אוֹ-גִבֵּן אוֹ-דַק, אוֹ תְּבַלֻּל בְּעֵינוֹ, אוֹ גָרָב אוֹ יַלֶּפֶת, אוֹ מְרוֹחַ אָשֶׁךְ. 20

or crook-backed, or a dwarf, or that hath his eye overspread, or is scabbed, or scurvy, or hath his stones crushed;

כא כָּל-אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ מוּם, מִזֶּרַע אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן–לֹא יִגַּשׁ, לְהַקְרִיב אֶת-אִשֵּׁי יְהוָה: מוּם בּוֹ–אֵת לֶחֶם אֱלֹהָיו, לֹא יִגַּשׁ לְהַקְרִיב. 21

no man of the seed of Aaron the priest, that hath a blemish, shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire;

he hath a blemish;

he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

כב לֶחֶם אֱלֹהָיו, מִקָּדְשֵׁי הַקֳּדָשִׁים, וּמִן-הַקֳּדָשִׁים, יֹאכֵל. 22

He may eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.

כג אַךְ אֶל-הַפָּרֹכֶת לֹא יָבֹא, וְאֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ לֹא יִגַּשׁ–כִּי-מוּם בּוֹ; וְלֹא יְחַלֵּל אֶת-מִקְדָּשַׁי, כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה מְקַדְּשָׁם. 23

Only he shall not go in unto the veil, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish;

that he profane not My holy places;

for I am the LORD who sanctify them.

כד וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶל-בָּנָיו, וְאֶל-כָּל-בְּנֵי, יִשְׂרָאֵל. {פ} 24

So Moses spoke unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the sons of Israel. {P}
