Deuteronomy 14:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Improper Mourning Rites. 1 You are children of the Lord, your God. You shall not gash yourselves nor shave the hair above your foreheads for the dead. 2 For you are a people holy to the Lord, your God; the Lord, your God, has chosen you from all the peoples on the face of the earth to be a people specially his own.
