19:27 Beard - berd :- To better understand the significance of the man's beard, go back to man's begining when Elohim created Adam and Eve (Gen 1:27) The physical traits distinguishes man from woman. Beard speaks of man's masculinity, nobility adornment, dignity, royal, leadership, authority, power of speech. It also symbolize channels of subconscious set apart energy that flows from above to the human soul. To remove it is an offensive against nature. BM84a describes the beard is "the adormant of a man's face while Encyclopedia Judaica a man without a his beard is compared to a eunuch. The man's beard is like the manes of the lion known to the king of the beast. Shaving one's hair or beard often was a sign of mourning.
Why do certain part of scripture man cut their beard?
In the verse vs 28 It was an ancient custom for people to cut their flesh in mourning for the dead as they are associated with conjuring up dead spirits and the gods of the netherworld, the Yisraelites are not to emulate from the pagan nations. In Dvarim 14:1 the Torah states that this is forbidden because, You are children to ADONAI, implying that it is disgraceful to Elohim for His children to inflict wounds on their bodies as signs of mourning. --- (see 1 Melekhim 18:28; Yirmeyahu 16:6, Yirmeyahu 41:5). Disfiguring one's body is dishonoured to Hashem Cutting one's flesh for the dead and tattooing (or painting) one's body had religious significance among Yisrael's pagan neighbours.
Cuttings / INCISION. A practice in Canaanitish heathen worship. Compare Vayikra 21:5.nor make any cuttings in their flesh. Devarim 14:1. 1 Melekhim 18:28. Jer_48:37.

Holiness (K'dushah) and Righteousness (Tzedaka) go together but they are not the same, there is a difference between the two. Righteousness is a free gift from G-d which every believer acquires simply by accepting Yeshua as the Mashiach (Messiah) of Yisrael (Yisrael), and inviting Him into their heart through repentance by faith (Teshuva derekh Emunah). Righteousness is a free gift imputed by faith because of the death and resurrection of Mashiach. He was bruised for our transgressions and took our iniquities upon Himself and through Him we are declared righteous, end of story (see Yeshayahu 53). Therefore there are no levels of righteousness. You are either righteous by the shed blood of Mashiach, offered on your behalf or you're not! Everyone therefore who is saved has the same righteousness.
Idea of Set apartness - holiness> Holiness - There are levels of holiness. The ultimate level which we should all be striving for is. Holiness does not make you more righteous, but it does allow you to enjoy the righteousness you received as a free gift to the maximum extent of the promises of G-d
Holiness is how we walk and live our life as a believer, where we go (places of activities), what we do (activities involved), how we think (our hearts altittude), how deal with people (care, considerate, helpful, resourceful), what we say (use of tongues, encouragement), what we wear (modesty attire) and what we eat (clean and unclean food idolatry free) . In the Lev 19 - 20 is known as holiness code. Holiness is how we respond to the teaching and instruction of the Holy Spirit. It require an action. If we choose to live carelessly our credential testimony as an ambassdor of Moshiach will be let down
Beresheit, Deception in Gardern, clean and unclean food, Holy and profane
