The word defile in Num.35:34 is concerning handling the dead. Only the near kin should be involved. Ez.20:7 God states for us not to defile ourselves with the idols. Jude 8 speaks of filthy dreamers defile the flesh,despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Matt. 15 the scribes and Pharisees confronted Jesus for not washing His hands. Jesus responds; 15:18 "But the things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart[mind/spirit], and they defile a man. 19. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adultery, fornication, hefts, false witness, blasphemies. 20. These are the things which defile a man". The war is going on between our ears. The ears and eyes feed our spirit. When we speak, we speak spirit, good or bad-life or death. In 2012 let us all agree to guard the audio and visual that is feeding our spirit, in the name of Christ Jesus Amen.
