Leviticus 201And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2You shall also say to the children of Israel, If there shall be any of the children of Israel, or of those who have become proselytes in Israel, who shall give of his seed to Moloch, let him be surely put to death; the nation upon the land shall stone him with stones. 3And I will set My face against that man, and will cut him off from his people, because he has given of his seed to Moloch, to defile My sanctuary, and profane the name of them that are consecrated to Me. 4And if the natives of the land should in anyway overlook that man in giving of his seed to Moloch, so as not to put him to death; 5then will I set My face against that man and his family, and I will destroy him, and all who have been of one mind with him, so that he should go a whoring to the princes, from their people. 6And the soul that shall follow those who have in them divining spirits, or enchanters, so as to go a whoring after them; I will set My face against that soul, and will destroy it from among its people. 7And you shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy. 8And you shall observe My ordinances, and do them: I am the Lord that sanctifies you. 9Every man who shall speak evil of his father or of his mother, let him die the death; has he spoken evil of his father or his mother? He shall be guilty. 10Whatever man shall commit adultery with the wife of a man, or whoever shall commit adultery with the wife of his neighbor, let them die the death, the adulterer and the adulteress. 11And if anyone should lie with his father's wife, he has uncovered his father's nakedness: let them both die the death, they are guilty. 12And if anyone should lie with his daughter-in-law, let them both be put to death; for they have committed perversion, they are guilty. 13And whoever shall lie with a male as with a woman, they have both committed an abomination; let them die the death, they are guilty. 14Whosoever shall take a woman and her mother, it is iniquity: they shall burn him and them with fire; so there shall not be iniquity among you. 15And whosoever shall lie with a beast, let him die the death; and you shall kill the beast. 16And whatever woman shall approach any beast, so as to mate with it, you shall kill the woman and the beast: let them die the death, they are guilty. 17Whosoever shall take his sister by his father or by his mother, and shall see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness, it is a reproach: they shall be destroyed before the children of their family; he has uncovered his sister's nakedness, they shall bear their sin. 18And whatever man shall lie with a woman that is set apart for her impurity, and shall uncover her nakedness, he has uncovered her fountain, and she has uncovered the flux of her blood: they shall both be destroyed from among their generation. 19And you shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's sister, or of the sister of your mother; for that man has uncovered the nakedness of one near akin: they shall bear their iniquity. 20Whosoever shall lie with his near kinswoman, has uncovered the nakedness of one near akin to him: they shall die childless. 21Whoever shall take his brother's wife, it is uncleanness; he has uncovered his brother's nakedness; they shall die childless. 22And keep all My ordinances, and My judgments; and you shall do them, and the land shall not be aggrieved with you, into which I bring you to dwell upon it. 23And walk not in the customs of the nations which I drive out from before you; for they have done all these things, and I have abhorred them: 24and I said to you, You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you for a possession, a land flowing with milk and honey: I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from all people. 25And you shall make a distinction between the clean and the unclean cattle, and between clean and unclean birds; and you shall not defile your souls with cattle, or with birds, or with any creeping things of the earth, which I have separated for you by reason of uncleanness. 26And you shall be holy to Me; because I the Lord your God am holy, who separated you from all nations, to be Mine. 27And as for a man or woman whosoever of them shall have in them a divining spirit, or be an enchanter, let them both die the death: you shall stone them with stones, they are guilty.
