24 zDefile not ye yourselves in any of these things: afor in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And bthe land is defiled: therefore I do cvisit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself dvomiteth out her inhabitants. 26 eYe 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 that sojourneth among you: 27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) 28 That fthe land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. 29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them gshall be cut off from among their people. 30 hTherefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, ithat ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye kdefile not yourselves therein: lI am the Lord your God.
