New Defender's Study Bible Notes
6:2 Nazarite. The Nazarite (meaning “set apart”) vow is described in this chapter, as a voluntary act to testify of one’s dedication and separation to God. Samson (Judges 13:5) and Samuel (I Samuel 1:11) were Nazarites, and possibly John the Baptist as well (Luke 1:15).
6:10 turtles. An archaic expression for turtledoves.
6:13 law of the Nazarite. The best-known Nazarite of the Bible was Samson (Judges 13:7). It is possible that the vow taken by the Apostle Paul (Act 21:26) was a Nazarite vow.
6:24 The LORD bless thee. This is the beautiful priestly benediction of Aaron, intended originally for the children of Israel, but often appropriated by Christians.
6:26 give thee peace. Two small silver scrolls with this priestly blessing (Numbers 6:24-26) inscribed on them have been excavated from a hill near Jerusalem. The inscription has been shown to date from the seventh century before Christ.
