Numbers 6 — the Nazarite vow and its meaning today

The Nazarite vow is one of the most serious vows a man or woman can take upon themselves. This chapter gives us the details of this vow but also shows us the spiritual application — even today — in the days without a temple or Aaronic priesthood.

Thought Questions

What about men like Samson (Judges 13) and Samuel who were dedicated, lifelong Nazarites and had killed people?

Why were the offerings so copious and costly? ?Why is it a sin to the Nazarite for a person to die near them when the death is not their fault?

What does death mean to God?

What kind of separation does a Nazarite vow create in the person taking the vow?

What is a Nazarite joining when making the Nazarite vow?

How serious is a Nazarite vow?

Why is the abstinence from grapes or any grape product so important?

What “nazir” was on Aaron’s turban (Ex. 21:12; 29:6; Lev. 8:9)?

What is the 6th Seal of Revelation?

How does the Nazarite vow apply to us today on a spiritual level?

Does the Nazarite vow have anything to say about the clothing that one must wear?

What does the hair represent?

    1. One of the great testimonies the Most High gives us through the instructions on the Nazir in Numbers 6 is that anyone can become a “bondservant” to service in God’s house.

      “See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are.” (1st John 3:1 New American Standard)
