The Third Book of Moses, called Leviticus

Chapter 20

1

And the LORD spake17 unto Moses, saying,2

2

Again, thou shalt say4 to the children of Israel, Whosoever 376 [he be] of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn6 in Israel, that giveth4 [any] of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely2 be put to death:93 the people of the land shall stone4 him with stones.

3

And I will set4 my face against that man, and will cut him off52 from among his people; because he hath given1 of his seed unto Molech, to defile15 my sanctuary, and to profane15 my holy name.

4

And if the people of the land do any ways53 hide55 their eyes from the man, when he giveth2 of his seed unto Molech, and kill53 him not:

5

Then I will set1 my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off,52 and all that go a whoring6 after him, to commit whoredom2 with Molech, from among their people.

6

And the soul that turneth4 after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring2 after them, I will even set1 my face against that soul, and will cut him off52 from among his people.

7

Sanctify98 yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I [am] the LORD your God.

8

And ye shall keep1 my statutes, and do1 them: I [am] the LORD which sanctify18 you.

9

For every one that curseth17 his father or his mother shall be surely2 put to death:93 he hath cursed14 his father or his mother; his blood [shall be] upon him.

10

And the man that committeth adultery4 with [another] man's wife, [even he] that committeth adultery4 with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer6 and the adulteress6 shall surely2 be put to death.93

11

And the man that lieth4 with his father's wife hath uncovered14 his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely2 be put to death;93 their blood [shall be] upon them.

12

And if a man lie4 with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely2 be put to death:93 they have wrought1 confusion; their blood [shall be] upon them.

13

If a man also lie4 with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed1 an abomination: they shall surely2 be put to death;93 their blood [shall be] upon them.

14

And if a man take4 a wife and her mother, it [is] wickedness: they shall be burnt4 with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.

15

And if a man lie4 7903 with a beast, he shall surely2 be put to death:93 and ye shall slay4 the beast.

16

And if a woman approach4 unto any beast, and lie down2 thereto, thou shalt kill1 the woman, and the beast: they shall surely2 be put to death;93 their blood [shall be] upon them.

17

And if a man shall take4 his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see1 her nakedness, and she see4 his nakedness; it [is] a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off8 in the sight of their people: 1121 he hath uncovered14 his sister's nakedness; he shall bear4 his iniquity.

18

And if a man shall lie4 with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover14 her nakedness; he hath discovered52 her fountain, and she hath uncovered14 the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off8 from among their people.

19

And thou shalt not uncover17 the nakedness of thy mother's sister, nor of thy father's sister: for he uncovereth52 his near kin: they shall bear4 their iniquity.

20

And if a man shall lie4 with his uncle's wife, he hath uncovered14 his uncle's nakedness: they shall bear4 their sin; they shall die4 childless.

21

And if a man shall take4 his brother's wife, it [is] an unclean thing: he hath uncovered14 his brother's nakedness; they shall be childless.

22

Ye shall therefore keep1 all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do1 them: that the land, whither I bring56 you to dwell2 therein, spue55 you not out.

23

And ye shall not walk4 in the manners of the nation, which I cast out18 before you: for they committed1 all these things, and therefore I abhorred4 them.

24

But I have said4 unto you, Ye shall inherit4 their land, and I will give4 it unto you to possess2 it, a land that floweth6 with milk and honey: I [am] the LORD your God, which have separated52 you from [other] people.

25

Ye shall therefore put difference52 between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable17 by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth4 on the ground, which I have separated52 from you as unclean.15

26

And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD [am] holy, and have severed55 you from [other] people, that ye should be mine.

27

A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely2 be put to death:93 they shall stone4 them with stones: their blood [shall be] upon them.
