Leviticus 18


18:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
18:2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, I [am]
 the LORD your God.
18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt in which ye dwelt,
 shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan
 whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in
 their ordinances.
18:4 Ye shall perform my judgments, and keep my ordinances, to
 walk in them; I [am] the LORD your God.
18:5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments: which
 if a man doeth, he shall live in them: I [am] the LORD.
18:6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to
 him, to uncover [their] nakedness: I am the LORD.
18:7 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy
 mother, shalt thou not uncover: she [is] thy mother, thou shalt
 not uncover her nakedness.
18:8 The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover:
 it [is] thy father's nakedness.
18:9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or
 daughter of thy mother, [whether] born at home, or born abroad,
 [even] their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.
18:10 The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's
 daughter, [even] their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for
 theirs [is] thy own nakedness.
18:11 The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten by
 thy father, (she [is] thy sister) thou shalt not uncover her
 nakedness.
18:12 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's
 sister: she [is] thy father's near kinswoman.
18:13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's
 sister: for she [is] thy mother's near kinswoman.
18:14 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's
 brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she [is] thy
 aunt.
18:15 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy
 daughter-in-law: she [is] thy son's wife, thou shalt not
 uncover her nakedness.
18:16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's
 wife: it [is] thy brother's nakedness.
18:17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her
 daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her
 daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; [for] they [are]
 her near kinswomen: it [is] wickedness.
18:18 Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex
 [her], to uncover her nakedness besides the other in her
 life-[time].
18:19 Also thou shalt not approach to a woman to uncover her
 nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.
18:20 Moreover, thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbor's
 wife, to defile thyself with her.
18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through [the
 fire] to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy
 God: I [am] the LORD.
18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it
 [is] abomination.
18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself
 therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie
 down thereto: it [is] confusion.
18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things; for in
 all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
18:25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit its iniquity
 upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
18:26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and
 shall not commit [any] of these abominations; [neither] any of
 your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you.
18:27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done,
 who [were] before you, and the land is defiled;)
18:28 That the land may not vomit you out also, when ye defile
 it, as it vomited out the nations that [were] before you.
18:29 For whoever shall commit any of these abominations, even
 the souls that commit [them] shall be cut off from among their
 people.
18:30 Therefore shall ye keep my ordinance, that [ye] commit not
 [any one] of these abominable customs, which were committed
 before you, and that ye defile not yourselves in them; I [am]
 the LORD your God.
