Leviticus 18:22-23 Meaning and Commentary

INTRODUCTION TO LEVITICUS 18

In this chapter the Israelites are directed in general not to imitate the customs and practices of the Egyptians and Canaanites, but to keep the ordinances, statutes, and judgments of the Lord, Le 18:1-5; and they are instructed particularly to avoid incestuous marriages, Le 18:6-18; carnal copulation with a menstruous woman, Le 18:19; adultery, Le 18:20; letting any of their seed pass through the fire to Molech, Le 18:21; sodomy, Le 18:22; and bestiality, Le 18:23; and they are deterred from these things by observing to them the pollution and destruction which they brought on the inhabitants of Canaan, and would bring the same on them should they commit them, Le 18:24-30.

Leviticus 18:22-23 In-Context

20 cum uxore proximi tui non coibis nec seminis commixtione maculaberis
21 de semine tuo non dabis ut consecretur idolo Moloch nec pollues nomen Dei tui ego Dominus
22 cum masculo non commisceberis coitu femineo quia abominatio est
23 cum omni pecore non coibis nec maculaberis cum eo mulier non subcumbet iumento nec miscebitur ei quia scelus est
24 ne polluamini in omnibus his quibus contaminatae sunt universae gentes quas ego eiciam ante conspectum vestrum
25 et quibus polluta est terra cuius ego scelera visitabo ut evomat habitatores suos
