Besides other usages, the practice of shaving the head after the completion of a vow must have created among the Jews a necessity for the special trade of a barber. (Leviticus 14:8 ; Numbers 6:9,18 ; 8:7 ; Judges 13:5 ; Isaiah 7:20 ; Ezekiel 5:1 ; Acts 18:18 ) The instruments of his work were probably, as in modern times, the razor, the basin, the mirror, and perhaps also the scissors. See (2 Samuel 14:26 ) Like the Levites, the Egyptian priests were accustomed to shave their whole bodies.
