1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: #Ex. 6:7; Lev. 11:44, 45; 19:3; Ezek. 20:5, 7, 19, 20‘I am the Lord your God. 3#Josh. 24:14; Ezek. 20:7, 8According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, you shall not do; and #Ex. 23:24; Lev. 18:24–30; 20:23; Deut. 12:30, 31according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, you shall not do; nor shall you walk in their ordinances. 4#Ezek. 20:19You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am the Lord your God. 5You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the Lord. 6‘None of you shall approach anyone who is near of kin to him, to uncover his nakedness: I am the Lord. 7The nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother you shall not uncover. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. 8The nakedness of your #Gen. 35:22father’s wife you shall not uncover; it is your father’s nakedness. 9#Lev. 18:11; 20:17; Deut. 27:22The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you shall not uncover. 10The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for theirs is your own nakedness. 11The nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, begotten by your father—she is your sister—you shall not uncover her nakedness. 12#Lev. 20:19You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s sister; she is near of kin to your father. 13You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, for she is near of kin to your mother. 14#Lev. 20:20You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s brother. You shall not approach his wife; she is your aunt. 15You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law—she is your son’s wife—you shall not uncover her nakedness. 16You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother’s wife; it is your brother’s nakedness. 17You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her #Lev. 20:14daughter, nor shall you take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness. They are near of kin to her. It is wickedness. 18Nor shall you take a woman #1 Sam. 1:6, 8as a rival to her sister, to uncover her nakedness while the other is alive. 19‘Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness as #Ezek. 18:6long as she is in her #Lev. 15:24; 20:18customary impurity. 20#(Prov. 6:25–33)Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your #Ex. 20:14; Lev. 20:10; (Matt. 5:27, 28; 1 Cor. 6:9; Heb. 13:4)neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. 21And you shall not let any of your descendants #Lev. 20:2–5; Deut. 12:31pass through #2 Kin. 16:3the fire to #1 Kin. 11:7, 33; Acts 7:43Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. 22You shall not lie with #Lev. 20:13; Rom. 1:27a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. 23Nor shall you mate with any #Ex. 22:19; Lev. 20:15, 16; Deut. 27:21animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.
