Leviticus 18:6-20Contemporary English Version (CEV)
6 Don’t have sex with any of your close relatives, 7 especially your own mother. This would disgrace your father. 8 And don’t disgrace him by having sex with any of his other wives. 9 Don’t have sex with your sister or stepsister, whether you grew up together or not. 10 Don’t disgrace yourself by having sex with your granddaughter 11 or half sister 12-13 or a sister of your father or mother. 14 Don’t disgrace your uncle by having sex with his wife. 15 Don’t have sex with your daughter-in-law 16 or sister-in-law. 17 And don’t have sex with the daughter or granddaughter of any woman that you have earlier had sex with. You may be having sex with a relative, and that would make you unclean. 18 As long as your wife is alive, don’t cause trouble for her by taking one of her sisters as a second wife.
19 When a woman is having her monthly period, she is unclean, so don’t have sex with her.
20 Don’t have sex with another man’s wife—that would make you unclean.
