Leviticus 19:8

19:8 and the one who eats it will bear his punishment for iniquity 1  because he has profaned 2  what is holy to the Lord. 3  That person will be cut off from his people. 4 

Leviticus 21:5

21:5 Priests 5  must not have a bald spot shaved on their head, they must not shave the corner of their beard, and they must not cut slashes in their body. 6 

1 tn See the note on Lev 17:16 above.

2 sn Regarding “profaned,” see the note on Lev 10:10 above.

3 tn Heb “the holiness of the Lord.”

4 sn On the “cut off” penalty see the note on Lev 7:20.

5 tn Heb “they”; the referent (priests, see the beginning of v. 1) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

6 tn Heb “and in their body they shall not [cut] slash[es]” (cf. Lev 19:28). The context connects these sorts of mutilations with mourning rites (cf. Lev 19:27-28 above).
