1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
2Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, I am the Lord your God.
3Ye shall not do according to the devices of Egypt, in which ye dwelt: and according to the devices of the land of Canaan, into which I bring you, ye shall not do; and ye shall not walk in their ordinances.
4Ye shall observe my judgments, and shall keep my ordinances, and shall walk in them: I am the Lord your God.
5So ye shall keep all my ordinances, and all my judgments, and do them; which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord your God.
6No man shall draw nigh to any of his near kindred to uncover their nakedness; I am the Lord.
7Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, for she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
8Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s wife; it is thy father’s nakedness.
9The nakedness of thy sister by thy father or by thy mother, born at home or abroad, their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.
10The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or thy daughter’s daughter, their nakedness thou shalt not uncover; because it is thy nakedness.
11Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of the daughter of thy father’s wife; she is thy sister by the same father: thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
12Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister, for she is near akin to thy father.
13Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister, for she is near akin to thy mother.
14Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, and thou shalt not go in to his wife; for she is thy relation.
15Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter-in-law, for she is thy son’s wife, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
16Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife: it is thy brother’s nakedness.
17The nakedness of a woman and her daughter shalt thou not uncover; her son’s daughter, and her daughter’s daughter, shalt thou not take, to uncover their nakedness, for they are thy kinswomen: it is impiety.
18Thou shalt not take a wife in addition to her sister, as a rival, to uncover her nakedness in opposition to her, while she is yet living.
19And thou shalt not go in to a woman under separation for her uncleanness, to uncover her nakedness.
20And thou shalt not lie with thy neighbor’s wife, to defile thyself with her.
21And thou shalt not give of thy seed to serve a ruler; and thou shalt not profane my holy name; I am the Lord.
22And thou shalt not lie with a man as with a woman, for it is an abomination.
23Neither shalt thou lie with any quadruped for copulation, to be polluted with it: neither shall a woman present herself before any quadruped to have connection with it; for it is an abomination.
24Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for in all these things the nations are defiled, which I drive out before you,
25and the land is polluted; and I have recompensed their iniquity to them because of it, and the land is aggrieved with them that dwell upon it.
26And ye shall keep all my statutes and all my ordinances, and ye shall do none of these abominations; neither the native, nor the stranger that joins himself with you
27(for all these abominations the men of the land did who were before you, and the land was defiled),
28and lest the land be aggrieved with you in your polluting it, as it was aggrieved with the nations before you.
29For whosoever shall do any of these abominations, the souls that do them shall be destroyed from among their people.
30And ye shall keep mine ordinances, that ye may not do any of the abominable practices, which have taken place before your time: and ye shall not be polluted in them; for I am the Lord your God.
