1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 2‘Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, I am Jehovah your God; 3according to the work of the land of Egypt in which ye have dwelt ye do not, and according to the work of the land of Canaan whither I am bringing you in, ye do not, and in their statutes ye walk not.
17 ‘The nakedness of a woman and her daughter thou dost not uncover; her son’s daughter, and her daughter’s daughter thou dost not take to uncover her nakedness; they are her relations; it is wickedness.
24 ‘Ye are not defiled with all these, for with all these have the nations been defiled which I am sending away from before you; 25and the land is defiled, and I charge its iniquity upon it, and the land vomiteth out its inhabitants: 26and ye—ye have kept My statutes and My judgments, and do not any of all these abominations, the native and the sojourner who is sojourning in your midst, 27(for all these abominations have the men of the land done who are before you, and the land is defiled), 28and the land doth not vomit you out in your defiling it, as it hath vomited out the nation which is before you; 29for any one who doth any of all these abominations—even the persons who are doing so, have been cut off from the midst of their people; 30and ye have kept My charge, so as not to do any of the abominable statutes which have been done before you, and ye do not defile yourselves with them; I am Jehovah your God.’
About Young’s Literal Translation
Robert Young is best known for his monumental work, Young’s Analytical Concordance To The Bible. Young’s Literal Translation is a very good work to add to your Bible collection for text comparisons. Since this is a very literal translation, it offers a good contrast and comparison to a dynamic equivalent translation like the NIV.
