1The LORD told Moses 2to say to the people of Israel, “I am the LORD your God. 3Do not follow the practices of the people of Egypt, where you once lived, or of the people in the land of Canaan, where I am now taking you. 4Obey my laws and do what I command. I am the LORD your God. 5#Neh 9.29; Ezek 18.9; 20.11–13; Lk 10.28; Rom 10.5; Gal 3.12Follow the practices and the laws that I give you; you will save your life by doing so. I am the LORD.” 6The LORD gave the following regulations. Do not have sexual intercourse with any of your relatives. 7Do not disgrace your father by having intercourse with your mother. You must not disgrace your own mother. 8#Lev 20.11; Deut 22.30; 27.20Do not disgrace your father by having intercourse with any of his other wives. 9#Lev 20.17; Deut 27.22Do not have intercourse with your sister or your stepsister, whether or not she was brought up in the same house with you. 10Do not have intercourse with your granddaughter; that would be a disgrace to you. 11Do not have intercourse with a half-sister; she, too, is your sister. 12-13#Lev 20.19–20Do not have intercourse with an aunt, whether she is your father's sister or your mother's sister. 12-13#Lev 20.19–20Do not have intercourse with an aunt, whether she is your father's sister or your mother's sister. 14Do not have intercourse with your uncle's wife; she, too, is your aunt. 15#Lev 20.12Do not have intercourse with your daughter-in-law 16#Lev 20.21or with your brother's wife. 17#Lev 20.14; Deut 27.23Do not have intercourse with the daughter or granddaughter of a woman with whom you have had intercourse; they may be related to you, and that would be incest. 18Do not take your wife's sister as one of your wives, as long as your wife is living. 19 # Lev 20.18 Do not have intercourse with a woman during her monthly period, because she is ritually unclean. 20#Lev 20.10Do not have intercourse with another man's wife; that would make you ritually unclean. 21#Lev 20.1–5Do not hand over any of your children to be used in the worship of the god Molech, because that would bring disgrace on the name of God, the LORD. 22#Lev 20.13No man is to have sexual relations with another man; God hates that. 23#Ex 22.19; Lev 20.15–16; Deut 27.21No man or woman is to have sexual relations with an animal; that perversion makes you ritually unclean.
