1 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say to them:
‘aNo one shall defile himself for a dead person among his people,
2 aexcept for his relatives who are nearest to him, his mother and his father and his son and his daughter and his brother,
3 also for his virgin sister, who is near to him 1because she has had no husband; for her he may defile himself.
4 ‘He shall not defile himself as a 1relative by marriage among his people, and so profane himself.
