SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:1 Â¶ Y habló el SEÑOR a Moisés, diciendo:
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And the Lord spake unto Moses , etc.] At the same time, or immediately after the law concerning the woman suspected of adultery was given; with which the following law concerning Nazarites may be thought to have a close connection, as some Jewish writers observe, women being concerned in it as well as men; and as wine leads to adultery, as Jarchi observes, abstinence from it, which the Nazarite’s vow obliged to, and forbearance of trimming and dressing the hair, and a being more strictly and closely devoted to the service of God, were very likely means of preserving from unchastity, and any suspicion of it: saying ; as follows.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-21 - The word Nazarite signifies separation. Some were appointed of God before their birth, to be Nazarites all their days, as Samson and Joh the Baptist. But, in general, it was a vow of separation from the worl and devotedness to the services of religion, for a limited time, an under certain rules, which any person might make if they pleased. Nazarite is spoken of as well known; but his obligation is brought to greater certainty than before. That the fancies of superstitious me might not multiply the restraints endlessly, God gives them rules. The must not drink wine or strong drink, nor eat grapes. Those who separat themselves to God, must not gratify the desires of the body, but kee it under. Let all Christians be very moderate in the use of wine an strong drink; for if the love of these once gets the mastery of a man he becomes an easy prey to Satan. The Nazarites were to eat nothin that came of the vine; this may teach the utmost care to avoid sin, an all that borders upon it, and leads to it, or may be a temptation to us. They must not cut their hair. They must neither poll their heads nor shave their beards; this was the mark of Samson being a Nazarite This signified neglect of the body, and of the ease and ornament of it Those who separate themselves to God, must keep their consciences pur from dead works, and not touch unclean things. All the days of their separation they must be holy to the Lord. This was the meaning of thos outward observances, and without this they were of no account. N penalty or sacrifice was appointed for those who wilfully broke their vow of being Nazarites; they must answer another day for such profan trifling with the Lord their God; but those were to be relieved who di not sin wilfully. There is nothing in Scripture that bears the leas resemblance to the religious orders of the church of Rome, except thes Nazarites. But mark the difference, or rather how completely opposed The religious of that church are forbidden to marry; but no suc restriction is laid upon the Nazarites. They are commanded to abstai from meats; but the Nazarites might eat any food allowed othe Israelites. They are not generally forbidden wine, not even on their fasting days; but the Nazarites might not have wine at any time. Their vow is lasting, even to the end of their lives; the Nazarites' vow wa only for a limited time, at their own will; and in certain cases no unless allowed by husbands or parents. Such a thorough difference ther is between rules of man's invention and those directed in Scripture Let us not forget that the Lord Jesus is not only our Surety, but als our example. For his sake we must renounce worldly pleasures, abstai from fleshy lusts, be separate from sinners, make open profession of our faith, moderate natural affections, be spiritually-minded, an devoted to God's service, and desirous to be an example all around us (Nu 6:22-27)
