Leviticus 18:6-23New American Standard Bible (NASB)
6 ‘None of you shall approach any blood relative [a]of his to uncover nakedness; I am the Lord.7 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father, that is, the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother; you are not to uncover her nakedness.8 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife; it is your father’s nakedness.9 The nakedness of your sister, either your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter, whether born at home or born outside, their nakedness you shall not uncover.10 The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for [b]their nakedness is yours.11 The nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, [c]born to your father, she is your sister, you shall not uncover her nakedness.12 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s sister; she is your father’s blood relative.13 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, for she is your mother’s blood relative.14 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s brother; you shall not approach his wife, she is your aunt.15 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law; she is your son’s wife, you shall not uncover her nakedness.16 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother’s wife; it is your brother’s nakedness.17 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and of her daughter, nor shall you take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness; they are blood relatives. It is [d]lewdness.18 You shall not [e]marry a woman in addition to [f]her sister [g]as a rival while she is alive, to uncover her nakedness.
19 ‘Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness during her menstrual impurity.20 You shall not have intercourse with your neighbor’s wife, to be defiled with her.21 You shall not give any of your offspring to [h]offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the Lord.22 You shall not lie with a male as [i]one lies with a female; it is an abomination.23 Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to [j]mate with it; it is a perversion.
