Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

14:1 cut yourselves. Various forms of asceticism and masochism are common among pagan religions, ancient and modern, but such practices are not appropriate for Christians. Note Colossians 2:20-23; I Timothy 4:1-5.

14:3 shalt not. See also Leviticus 11 on the dietary and sanitary laws enjoined upon Israel.
