18 And Jehovah continued to speak to Moses, saying: 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel, and you must say to them, ‘I am Jehovah YOUR God.+ 3 The way the land of Egypt does, in which YOU dwelt, YOU must not do;+ and the way the land of Caʹnaan does, into which I am bringing YOU, YOU must not do;+ and in their statutes YOU must not walk. 4 My judicial decisions+ YOU should carry out, and my statutes+ YOU should keep so as to walk in them.+ I am Jehovah YOUR God. 5 And YOU must keep my statutes and my judicial decisions, which if a man* will do, he must also live by means of them.*+ I am Jehovah.+
6 “‘YOU people must not come near, any man of YOU, to any close fleshly relative of his to lay bare nakedness.+ I am Jehovah. 7 The nakedness* of your father+ and the nakedness of your mother you must not lay bare. She is your mother. You must not lay bare her nakedness.
10 “‘As for the nakedness of the daughter of your son or the daughter of your daughter, you must not lay bare their nakedness, because they are your nakedness.
11 “‘As for the nakedness of the daughter of your father’s wife, the offspring of your father, she being your sister, you must not lay bare her nakedness.
13 “‘The nakedness of your mother’s sister you must not lay bare, because she is a blood relation of your mother.
17 “‘The nakedness of a woman and her daughter you must not lay bare.+ The daughter of her son and the daughter of her daughter you must not take in order to lay her nakedness bare. They are cases of blood relationship. It is loose conduct.*+
24 “‘Do not make yourselves unclean by any of these things, because by all these things the nations whom I am sending out from before YOU have made themselves unclean.+ 25 Consequently the land is unclean, and I shall bring punishment for its error upon it, and the land will vomit its inhabitants out.+ 26 And YOU yourselves must keep my statutes and my judicial decisions,+ and YOU must not do any of all these detestable things, whether a native or an alien resident who is residing as an alien in YOUR midst.+ 27 For all these detestable things the men of the land who were before YOU have done,+ so that the land is unclean. 28 Then the land will not vomit YOU out for YOUR defiling it the same way as it will certainly vomit the nations* out who were before YOU.+ 29 In case anyone does any of all these detestable things, then the souls doing them must be cut off from among their people.+ 30 And YOU must keep YOUR obligation to me not to carry on any of the detestable customs that have been carried on before YOU,+ that YOU may not make yourselves unclean by them. I am Jehovah YOUR God.’”
