5. Priests, Levites, Nazarites, and ProphetsThis chapter tells you how to make priests. It's quite a procedure. You'll need some holy garments, breastplates, ephods, curious girdles, Urim and the Thummim, blue pomegranates, golden bells, and bonnets for glory and beauty. You'll also need special bowls for washing their hands and feet, some holy anointing oil, and some rams' blood to wipe on the newly ordained priests' right ears, thumbs, and big toes. It's all very complicated.
There are many special rules for priests. They must eat sin offerings in the holy place. They must not touch dead bodies, make any baldness on their heads, shave the corners of their beards, or make cuttings on their flesh. They must not marry whores or divorced women. And they mustn't drink alcohol when they go into the tabernacle (or God will kill them).
In addition to the regular rules for regular priests, a high priest must marry a virgin, can't uncover his head, tear his clothes, or profane his seed among the people. He cannot have any blemish, be a dwarf, or have a flat nose, broken feet, crooked back, blemished eyes, scurvy or scabs. And his testicles must not be broken.
There are conflicting rules about prophets. So refer to the details below before believing anything they say.
