Leviticus 20:18-27 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
18 " 'If a man lies with a woman during her monthly period1 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.2 19 " 'Do not have sexual relations with the sister of either your mother or your father,3 for that would dishonor a close relative; both of you would be held responsible. 20 " 'If a man sleeps with his aunt,4 he has dishonored his uncle. They will be held responsible; they will die childless.5 21 " 'If a man marries his brother's wife,6 it is an act of impurity; he has dishonored his brother. They will be childless.7 22 " 'Keep all my decrees and laws8 and follow them, so that the land9 where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out. 23 You must not live according to the customs of the nations10 I am going to drive out before you.11 Because they did all these things, I abhorred them.12 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."13 I am the LORD your God, who has set you apart from the nations.14 25 " 'You must therefore make a distinction between clean and unclean animals and between unclean and clean birds.15 Do not defile yourselves by any animal or bird or anything that moves along the ground--those which I have set apart as unclean for you. 26 You are to be holy to mea16 because I, the LORD, am holy,17 and I have set you apart from the nations18 to be my own. 27 " 'A man or woman who is a medium19 or spiritist among you must be put to death.20 You are to stone them;21 their blood will be on their own heads.'
