10 Then on the eighth day(A) they must bring two doves or two young pigeons(B) to the priest at the entrance to the tent of meeting.(C) 11 The priest is to offer one as a sin offering[a](D) and the other as a burnt offering(E) to make atonement(F) for the Nazirite because they sinned by being in the presence of the dead body. That same day they are to consecrate their head again. 12 They must rededicate themselves to the Lord for the same period of dedication and must bring a year-old male lamb(G) as a guilt offering.(H) The previous days do not count, because they became defiled during their period of dedication.

13 “‘Now this is the law of the Nazirite when the period of their dedication is over.(I) They are to be brought to the entrance to the tent of meeting.(J) 14 There they are to present their offerings to the Lord: a year-old male lamb without defect(K) for a burnt offering, a year-old ewe lamb without defect for a sin offering,(L) a ram(M) without defect for a fellowship offering,(N) 15 together with their grain offerings(O) and drink offerings,(P) and a basket of bread made with the finest flour and without yeast—thick loaves with olive oil mixed in, and thin loaves brushed with olive oil.(Q)

16 “‘The priest is to present all these(R) before the Lord(S) and make the sin offering and the burnt offering.(T) 17 He is to present the basket of unleavened bread and is to sacrifice the ram as a fellowship offering(U) to the Lord, together with its grain offering(V) and drink offering.(W)

18 “‘Then at the entrance to the tent of meeting, the Nazirite must shave off the hair that symbolizes their dedication.(X) They are to take the hair and put it in the fire that is under the sacrifice of the fellowship offering.

19 “‘After the Nazirite has shaved off the hair that symbolizes their dedication, the priest is to place in their hands a boiled shoulder of the ram, and one thick loaf and one thin loaf from the basket, both made without yeast.(Y) 20 The priest shall then wave these before the Lord as a wave offering;(Z) they are holy(AA) and belong to the priest, together with the breast that was waved and the thigh that was presented.(AB) After that, the Nazirite may drink wine.(AC)
