Then the LORD said to Moses,
"Say this to your people, the Israelites: I, the LORD, am your God.
So do not act like the people in Egypt, where you used to live, or like the people of Canaan, where I am taking you. You must not imitate their way of life.
You must obey all my regulations and be careful to keep my laws, for I, the LORD, am your God.
If you obey my laws and regulations, you will find life through them. I am the LORD.
"You must never have sexual intercourse with a close relative, for I am the LORD.
Do not violate your father by having sexual intercourse with your mother. She is your mother; you must never have intercourse with her.
Do not have sexual intercourse with any of your father's wives, for this would violate your father.
