Numbers 6:33 “he shall separate himself from wine and similar drink; he shall drink neither vinegar made from wine nor vinegar made from similar drink; neither shall he drink any grape juice, nor eat fresh grapes or raisins….”
Numbers 6:44 “All the days of his separation he shall eat nothing that is produced by the grapevine, from seed to skin….”
Numbers 6:55 “All the days of the vow of his separation no razor shall come upon his head; until the days are fulfilled for which he separated himself to YHWH, he shall be separated (set apart).”
