In the Bible, a Nazarite is a person who follows certain rules from God. Someone becomes a Nazarite by making certain vows, or promises to the Lord. Nazarites must not eat anything made from grapes, including wine, nor get a haircut. The word comes from the Hebrew word nazir meaning "consecrated" or "separated".
