20 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 2 aAgain, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, bWhosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 And cI will set my face against that man, and dwill cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to edefile my sanctuary, and fto profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and gkill him not: 5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and dwill cut him off, and all that hgo a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people. 6 And ithe soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, kI will even set my face against that soul, and dwill cut him off from among his people. 7 lSanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God. 8 mAnd ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: nI am the Lord which sanctify you. 9 oFor every one that ocurseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; phis blood shall be upon him.
10 And qthe man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. 11 rAnd the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 12 sAnd if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought tconfusion; their blood shall be upon them. 13 uIf a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 14 xAnd if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you. 15 yAnd if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. 16 And if ya woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 17 zAnd if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is aa wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. 18 bAnd if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath †discovered her cfountain, and she hath uncovered the cfountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people. 19 dAnd thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister, nor of thy father’s sister: for he †uncovereth ehis near kin: they shall bear their iniquity. 20 fAnd if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife, he hath uncovered his uncle’s nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. 21 gAnd if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is †an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they shall be childless.
22 Ye shall therefore keep all my hstatutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, ispue you not out. 23 And ye shall not walk in kthe manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and ltherefore I abhorred them. 24 But I mhave said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land nthat floweth with milk and honey: I am the Lord your God, owhich have separated you from other people. 25 Ye shall therefore pput difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: qand ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that ||creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26 And ye shall be holy unto me: rfor I the Lord am holy, and shave severed you from other people, that ye should be mine. 27 tA man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: uthey shall stone them with stones: xtheir blood shall be upon them.
