Chapter 18

1And 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. 4`My judgments ye do, and My statutes ye keep, to walk in them; I [am] Jehovah your God; 5and ye have kept My statutes and My judgments which man doth and liveth in them; I [am] Jehovah. 6`None of you unto any relation of his flesh doth draw near to uncover nakedness; I [am] Jehovah. 7`The nakedness of thy father and the nakedness of thy mother thou dost not uncover, she [is] thy mother; thou dost not uncover her nakedness. 8`The nakedness of the wife of thy father thou dost not uncover; it [is] the nakedness of thy father. 9`The nakedness of thy sister, daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, born at home or born without; thou dost not uncover their nakedness. 10`The nakedness of thy son`s daughter, or of thy daughter`s daughter: thou dost not uncover their nakedness; for theirs [is] thy nakedness. 11`The nakedness of a daughter of thy father`s wife, begotten of thy father, she [is] thy sister; thou dost not uncover her nakedness. 12`The nakedness of a sister of thy father thou dost not uncover; she [is] a relation of thy father. 13`The nakedness of thy mother`s sister thou dost not uncover; for she [is] thy mother`s relation. 14`The nakedness of thy father`s brother thou dost not uncover; unto his wife thou dost not draw near; she [is] thine aunt. 15`The nakedness of thy daughter-in-law thou dost not uncover; she [is] thy son`s wife; thou dost not uncover her nakedness. 16`The nakedness of thy brother`s wife thou dost not uncover; it [is] thy brother`s nakedness. 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. 18`And a woman unto another thou dost not take, to be an adversary, to uncover her nakedness beside her, in her life. 19`And unto a woman in the separation of her uncleanness thou dost not draw near to uncover her nakedness. 20`And unto the wife of thy fellow thou dost not give thy seed of copulation, for uncleanness with her. 21`And of thy seed thou dost not give to pass over to the Molech; nor dost thou pollute the name of thy God; I [am] Jehovah. 22`And with a male thou dost not lie as one lieth with a woman; abomination it [is]. 23`And with any beast thou dost not give thy copulation, for uncleanness with it; and a woman doth not stand before a beast to lie down with it; confusion it [is]. 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.`
