View In My Bible
12 " 'If a man sleeps with his daughter-in-law,1 both of them must be put to death. What they have done is a perversion; their blood will be on their own heads. 13 " 'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable.2 They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. 14 " 'If a man marries both a woman and her mother,3 it is wicked. Both he and they must be burned in the fire,4 so that no wickedness will be among you.5 15 " 'If a man has sexual relations with an animal,6 he must be put to death,7 and you must kill the animal. 16 " 'If a woman approaches an animal to have sexual relations with it, kill both the woman and the animal. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. 17 " 'If a man marries his sister8, the daughter of either his father or his mother, and they have sexual relations, it is a disgrace. They must be cut off before the eyes9 of their people. He has dishonored his sister and will be held responsible.10 18 " 'If a man lies with a woman during her monthly period11 and has sexual relations with her, he has exposed the source of her flow, and she has also uncovered it. Both of them must be cut off from their people.12 19 " 'Do not have sexual relations with the sister of either your mother or your father,13 for that would dishonor a close relative; both of you would be held responsible. 20 " 'If a man sleeps with his aunt,14 he has dishonored his uncle. They will be held responsible; they will die childless.15 21 " 'If a man marries his brother's wife,16 it is an act of impurity; he has dishonored his brother. They will be childless.17 22 " 'Keep all my decrees and laws18 and follow them, so that the land19 where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out.
