Leviticus 18

Unlawful marriages.

Leviticus 18:1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 18:2 Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them,—I—Yahweh, am your God:— Leviticus 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do,—And, after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither, I, am bringing you in, shall ye not do, And, in their statutes, shall ye not walk: Leviticus 18:4 My regulations, shall ye do, And, my statutes, shall ye observe, to walk therein,—I—Yahweh, am your God. Leviticus 18:5 Therefore shall ye observe my statutes, and my regulations, Which, if the son of earth shall do them, Then shall he live in them,—I, am Yahweh.

Leviticus 18:6 No person whatsoever, unto any of the near kin of his own flesh, shall approach, to uncover the parts of shame,—I, am Yahweh. Leviticus 18:7 The shame of thy father, even the shame of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover,—thy mother, she is, thou shalt not uncover her shame. Leviticus 18:8 The shame of thy father's wife, shalt thou not uncover,—thy father's shame, it is. Leviticus 18:9 The shame of thy sister, daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, born at home or born abroad, thou shalt not uncover their shame. Leviticus 18:10 The shame of the daughter of thy son, or the daughter of thy daughter, thou shalt not uncover their shame,—for, thine own shame, they are. Leviticus 18:11 The shame of the daughter of thy father's wife, born to thy father, she being, thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her shame. Leviticus 18:12 The shame of thy father's sister, shalt thou not uncover,—thy father's near of kin, she is. Leviticus 18:13 The shame of thy mother's sister, shalt thou not uncover,—for, thy mother's near of kin, she is. Leviticus 18:14 The shame of thy father's brother, shalt thou not uncover, unto his wife, shalt thou not approach, thine aunt, she is. Leviticus 18:15 The shame of thy daughter-in-law, shalt thou not uncover,—thy son's wife, she is, thou shalt not uncover her shame. Leviticus 18:16 The shame of thy brother's wife, shalt thou not uncover,—the shame of thy brother, it is. Leviticus 18:17 The shame of a woman, and of her daughter, shalt thou not uncover,—neither the daughter of her son nor the daughter of her daughter, shalt thou take, to uncover her shame, near of kin, they are, wickedness, it is. Leviticus 18:18 And, a woman unto her sister, shalt thou not take,—to cause rivalry, by uncovering her shame, besides her own, while she is living.

Leviticus 18:21 And, none of thy seed, shalt thou deliver up, to cause to pass through to Molech,—that thou profane not the name of thy God, I, am Yahweh. Leviticus 18:22 And, with mankind, shalt thou not lie, as with womankind,—an abomination, it is. Leviticus 18:23 And, of no beast, shalt thou have carnal knowledge, to commit uncleanness therewith,—neither shall, a woman, present herself to a beast to couch down thereto,—confusion, it is. Leviticus 18:24 Do not make yourselves unclean, in any of these things,—For, in all these things, have the nations made themselves unclean, whom, I, am sending out from before you. Leviticus 18:25 Therefore hath the land become unclean, and I have visited the iniquity thereof upon it,—and the land hath vomited her inhabitants. Leviticus 18:26 Ye, therefore, shall observe my statutes and my regulations, and have nothing to do with any of these abominations,—whether the home-born, or the sojourner that sojourneth in your midst; Leviticus 18:27 For, all these abominations, have the men of the land done, who were before you; And so the land, hath become unclean: Leviticus 18:28 So shall the land not vomit you, through your making it unclean,—as it vomited the nation which was before you. Leviticus 18:29 For, whosoever shall have anything to do with any of these abominations, the persons who have, shall be cut off, out of the midst of their people. Leviticus 18:30 Therefore shall ye keep my charge, So that ye may have nothing to do with any of the abominable statutes with which they have had to do before you, So shall ye not make yourselves unclean thereby,—I—Yahweh, am your God.
