Leviticus 18:1-30 NIV [1] The LORD said to Moses, [2] "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'I am the LORD your God. [3] You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices. [4] You must obey my laws and be careful to follow my decrees. I am the LORD your God. [5] Keep my decrees and laws, for the person who obeys them will live by them. I am the LORD. [6] "'No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the LORD. [7] "'Do not dishonor your father by having sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother; do not have relations with her. [8] "'Do not have sexual relations with your father's wife; that would dishonor your father. [9] "'Do not have sexual relations with your sister, either your father's daughter or your mother's daughter, whether she was born in the same home or elsewhere. [10] "'Do not have sexual relations with your son's daughter or your daughter's daughter; that would dishonor you. [11] "'Do not have sexual relations with the daughter of your father's wife, born to your father; she is your sister. [12] "'Do not have sexual relations with your father's sister; she is your father's close relative. [13] "'Do not have sexual relations with your mother's sister, because she is your mother's close relative. [14] "'Do not dishonor your father's brother by approaching his wife to have sexual relations; she is your aunt. [15] "'Do not have sexual relations with your daughter-in-law. She is your son's wife; do not have relations with her. [16] "'Do not have sexual relations with your brother's wife; that would dishonor your brother. [17] "'Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter. Do not have sexual relations with either her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter; they are her close relatives. That is wickedness. [18] "'Do not take your wife's sister as a rival wife and have sexual relations with her while your wife is living. [19] "'Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period. [20] "'Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor's wife and defile yourself with her.

[22] "'Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. [23] "'Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion. [24] "'Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. [25] Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. [26] But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, [27] for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. [28] And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you. [29] "'Everyone who does any of these detestable things-such persons must be cut off from their people. [30] Keep my requirements and do not follow any of the detestable customs that were practiced before you came and do not defile yourselves with them. I am the LORD your God.'"
