They are not to marry a woman who is a prostitute, or profane; nor are they to marry a woman divorced from her husband, for the priest is holy to his God. Bible

“for the priest is holy.” The text reads, “for he is holy,” abruptly changing from the plural “they” to the singular “he,” but the reading is confusing in English because it reads as if the divorced husband is holy which is not what the text is saying. The point of the singular is to emphasize that every priest is holy.
