Leviticus 20:19-27 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
19 " 'Do not have sexual relations with the sister of either your mother or your father,1 for that would dishonor a close relative; both of you would be held responsible. 20 " 'If a man sleeps with his aunt,2 he has dishonored his uncle. They will be held responsible; they will die childless.3 21 " 'If a man marries his brother's wife,4 it is an act of impurity; he has dishonored his brother. They will be childless.5 22 " 'Keep all my decrees and laws6 and follow them, so that the land7 where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out. 23 You must not live according to the customs of the nations8 I am going to drive out before you.9 Because they did all these things, I abhorred them.10 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."11 I am the LORD your God, who has set you apart from the nations.12 25 " 'You must therefore make a distinction between clean and unclean animals and between unclean and clean birds.13 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 mea14 because I, the LORD, am holy,15 and I have set you apart from the nations16 to be my own. 27 " 'A man or woman who is a medium17 or spiritist among you must be put to death.18 You are to stone them;19 their blood will be on their own heads.'
