20 The Lord spoke to Moses: 2 “Say to the Israelites: Any Israelite or alien residing in Israel who gives any of his children to Molecht must be put to death; the people of the country are to stone him.u 3 I will turn* against that man and cut him off from his people, because he gave his offspring to Molech, defiling my sanctuaryv and profaning my holy name.w 4 But if the people of the country look the other way when that manI gives any of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, 5 then I will turn against that man and his family, and cut off from their people both him and all who followJ him in prostitutingx themselves with Molech.
6 “Whoever turns to mediumsD,y or spiritistsE and prostitutes himself with them, I will turn against that person and cut him off from his people. 7 Consecrate yourselves and be holy, for I am the Lord your God. 8 Keep my statutes and do them; I am the Lord who sets you apart.
10 “If a man commits adulteryaa with a married woman—if he commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife—both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death. 11 If a man sleeps with his father’s wife, he has violated the intimacy that belongs to his father.L,ab Both of them must be put to death; their death is their own fault.* 12 If a man sleeps with his daughter-in-law,ac both of them must be put to death. They have acted perversely; their death is their own fault. 13 If a man sleeps with a man as with a woman,ad they have both committed a detestable act.ae They must be put to death; their death is their own fault. 14 If a man marries* a woman and her mother,af it is depraved. Both he and they must be burned,ag so that there will be no depravity among you. 15 If a man has sexual intercourse withO an animal, he must be put to death; you are also to kill the animal. 16 If a woman approaches any animal and mates with it, you are to kill the woman and the animal.ah They must be put to death; their death is their own fault. 17 If a man marries his sister,ai whether his father’s daughter or his mother’s daughter, and they have sexual relations,P,aj it is a disgrace.ak They are to be cut off publicly from their people. He has had sexual intercourse with his sister; he will bear his iniquity. 18 If a man sleeps with a menstruating woman and has sexual intercourse with her, he has exposed the source of her flow, and she has uncovered the source of her blood.a Both of them are to be cut off from their people. 19 You must not have sexual intercourse with your mother’s sister or your father’s sister,b for it is exposing one’s own blood relative; both people will bear their iniquity. 20 If a man sleeps with his aunt, he has violated the intimacy that belongs to his uncle;A,c they will bear their guilt and die childless. 21 If a man marries his brother’s wife, it is impurity.d He has violated the intimacy that belongs to his brother;B,e they will be childless.
22 “You are to keep all my statutes and all my ordinances, and do them, so that the land where I am bringing you to live will not vomit you out.f 23 You must not follow the statutes of the nations I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and I abhorred them.g 24 And I promised you: You will inherit their land, since I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.h I am the Lord your God who set you apart from the peoples. 25 Therefore you are to distinguish the clean animal from the unclean one, and the unclean bird from the clean one. Do not become contaminatedi by any land animal, bird, or whatever crawls on the ground; I have set these apart as unclean for you.j 26 You are to be holy to me because I, the Lord, am holy, and I have set you apart from the nations to be mine.k
27 “A man or a woman who isC a medium or a spiritist must be put to death. They are to be stoned; their death is their own fault.”
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
