Leviticus 20

On Human Sacrifice and Immoralities

Then the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, You shall also say to the sons of Israel:

Any man from the sons of Israel or from the aliens sojourning in Israel a who gives any of his
Lit seed
offspring to Molech, shall surely be put to death; c the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
I will also set My face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given some of his
Lit seed
offspring to Molech, e so as to defile My sanctuary and f to profane My holy name.
If the people of the land, however,
Lit hiding they hide their eyes from
should ever disregard that man when he gives any of his
Lit seed
offspring to Molech, so as not to put him to death,
then I Myself will set My face against that man and against his family, and I will cut off from among their people both him and all those who play the harlot after him, by playing the harlot after Molech.

As for the person who turns to
Or ghosts and spirits
,
j mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.
You shall consecrate yourselves therefore and k be holy, for I am the  Lord your God. l You shall keep My statutes and practice them; I am the  Lord who sanctifies you.

m If there is anyone who curses his father or his mother, he shall surely be put to death; he has cursed his father or his mother, his bloodguiltiness is upon him.

10 n If there is a man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, one who commits adultery with his friend’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. 11 o If there is a man who lies with his father’s wife, he has uncovered his father’s nakedness; both of them shall surely be put to death, their bloodguiltiness is upon them. 12 p If there is a man who lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death; they have committed
Lit confusion; i.e. a violation of divine order
incest, their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
13 r If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them. 14 s If there is a man who
Lit takes
marries a woman and her mother, it is immorality; both he and they shall be burned with fire, so that there will be no immorality in your midst.
15 u If there is a man who lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death; you shall also kill the animal. 16 ‘If there is a woman who approaches any animal to
Lit lie
mate with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

17 w If there is a man who takes his sister, his father’s daughter or his mother’s daughter, so that he sees her nakedness and she sees his nakedness, it is a disgrace; and they shall be cut off in the sight of the sons of their people. He has uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he bears his guilt. 18 x If there is a man who lies with a
Lit sick
menstruous woman and uncovers her nakedness, he has laid bare her flow, and she has
Or uncovered
exposed the flow of her blood; thus both of them shall be cut off from among their people.
19 aa You shall also not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister or of your father’s sister, for such a one has made naked his
Lit flesh
blood relative; they will bear their guilt.
20 ac If there is a man who lies with his uncle’s wife he has uncovered his uncle’s nakedness; they will bear their sin. They will die childless. 21 ad If there is a man who takes his brother’s wife, it is
Or an impure deed
abhorrent; he has uncovered his brother’s nakedness. They will be childless.

22 You are therefore to keep all My statutes and all My ordinances and do them, so that the land to which I am bringing you to
Lit dwell in it
live will not ag spew you out.
23 ‘Moreover, you shall not
Lit walk in the statutes
follow ai the customs of the nation which I will drive out before you, for they did all these things, and aj therefore I have abhorred them.
24 Hence I have said to you, ak You are to possess their land, and I Myself will give it to you to possess it, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I am the  Lord your God, who has al separated you from the peoples. 25 am You are therefore to make a distinction between the clean animal and the unclean, and between the unclean bird and the clean; and you shall not make
Lit your souls
yourselves detestable by animal or by bird or by anything
Lit with which the ground creeps
that creeps on the ground, which I have separated for you as unclean.
26 Thus you are to be holy to Me, for I the  Lord am holy; and I ap have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine.

27 Now a man or a woman aq who is a medium or a
Lit spiritist among them
spiritist shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones, their bloodguiltiness is upon them.’”
