View In My Bible
14 " 'If a man marries both a woman and her mother,1 it is wicked. Both he and they must be burned in the fire,2 so that no wickedness will be among you.3 15 " 'If a man has sexual relations with an animal,4 he must be put to death,5 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 sister6, 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 eyes7 of their people. He has dishonored his sister and will be held responsible.8 18 " 'If a man lies with a woman during her monthly period9 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.10 19 " 'Do not have sexual relations with the sister of either your mother or your father,11 for that would dishonor a close relative; both of you would be held responsible. 20 " 'If a man sleeps with his aunt,12 he has dishonored his uncle. They will be held responsible; they will die childless.13 21 " 'If a man marries his brother's wife,14 it is an act of impurity; he has dishonored his brother. They will be childless.15 22 " 'Keep all my decrees and laws16 and follow them, so that the land17 where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out. 23 You must not live according to the customs of the nations18 I am going to drive out before you.19 Because they did all these things, I abhorred them.20 24 But I said to you, "You will possess their land; I will give it to you as an inheritance, a land flowing with milk and honey."21 I am the LORD your God, who has set you apart from the nations.22
