Leviticus 18:20–30

20 “ ‘Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wifel and defile yourself with her.

21 “ ‘Do not give any of your childrenm to be sacrificed to Molek,n for you must not profane the name of your God.o I am the Lord.p

22 “ ‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman;q that is detestable.r

23 “ ‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.s

24 “ ‘Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before yout became defiled.u 25 Even the land was defiled;v so I punished it for its sin,w and the land vomited out its inhabitants.x 26 But you must keep my decrees and my laws.y The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, 27 for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. 28 And if you defile the land,z it will vomit you outa as it vomited out the nations that were before you.

29 “ ‘Everyone who does any of these detestable things—such persons must be cut off from their people. 30 Keep my requirementsb and do not follow any of the detestable customs that were practiced before you came and do not defile yourselves with them. I am the Lord your God.c’ ”
