Leviticus 19:27

Context
19:27 You must not round off the corners of the hair on your head or ruin the corners of your beard. 1 

Leviticus 21:5

Context
21:5 Priests 2  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. 3 

1 tc Heb “and you [singular] shall not ruin the corner of your [singular] beard.” Smr, LXX, Syriac, and Tg. Ps.-J. have the plural pronouns (i.e., “you” and “your” plural) rather than the singular of the MT.

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

3 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).
