"`Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things, for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you,
and the land is defiled. Therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Ye shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, neither any of your own nation nor any stranger who sojourneth among you
(for all these abominations have the men of the land done, who were before you, and the land is defiled),
that the land spew not you out also when ye defile it, as it spewed out the nations that were before you.
For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
Therefore shall ye keep Mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.'"
