Laws on Immoral Relations

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, `I R413 am the LORD your God. 3 `You shall not do what F241 is done R414 in the land of Egypt where you lived, nor are you to do what F241 is done R415 in the land of Canaan where I am bringing you; you shall not walk in their statutes. 4 `You are to perform My judgments and keep My statutes, to F242 live in accord with them; I R416 am the LORD your God. 5 `So you shall keep My statutes and My judgments, by R417 which a man may live if he does them; I am the LORD.

6 `None of you shall approach any blood relative of F243 his to uncover nakedness; I am the LORD. 7 `You R418 shall not uncover the nakedness of your father, that is, the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother; you are not to uncover her nakedness. 8 `You R419 shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife; it is your father's nakedness. 9 `The R420 nakedness of your sister, either your father's daughter or your mother's daughter, whether born at home or born outside, their nakedness you shall not uncover. 10 `The nakedness of your son's daughter or your daughter's daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for their F244 nakedness is yours. 11 `The nakedness of your father's wife's daughter, born F245 to your father, she is your sister, you shall not uncover her nakedness. 12 `You R421 shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's sister; she is your father's blood relative. 13 `You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister, for she is your mother's blood relative. 14 `You R422 shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's brother; you shall not approach his wife, she is your aunt. 15 `You R423 shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law; she is your son's wife, you shall not uncover her nakedness. 16 `You R424 shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother's wife; it is your brother's nakedness. 17 `You R425 shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and of her daughter, nor shall you take her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; they are blood relatives. It is lewdness. F246 18 `You shall not marry F247 a woman in addition to her F248 sister as F249 a rival while she is alive, to uncover her nakedness.

19 `Also R426 you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness during her menstrual R427 impurity. 20 `You R428 shall not have intercourse with your neighbor's wife, to be defiled with her. 21 `You shall not give any of your offspring to R429 offer F250 them to Molech, nor shall you profane R430 the name of your God; I am the LORD. 22 `You R431 shall not lie with a male as one F251 lies with a female; it is an abomination. 23 `Also R432 you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate F252 with it; it is a perversion.

24 `Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the R433 nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled. 25 `For the land has become defiled, therefore R434 I have brought its punishment F253 upon it, so the land has R435 spewed out its inhabitants. 26 `But as for you, you are to keep My statutes and My judgments and shall not do any of these abominations, neither the native, nor the alien who sojourns among you 27 (for the men of the land who have been before you have done all these abominations, and the land has become defiled); 28 so that the land will not spew you out, should you defile it, as it has spewed out the nation which has been before you. 29 `For whoever does any of these abominations, those F254 persons who do so shall be cut off from among their people. 30 `Thus you are to keep My R436 charge, that you do not practice any of the abominable customs which have been practiced before you, so as not to defile yourselves with them; I R437 am the LORD your God.' "
