If a man has sexual relations with his father’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. They are responsible for their own death. It is as if that man had sexual relations with his father!
If a man ·has sexual relations [L lies] with his father’s wife, ·he has shamed [L exposing/revealing the nakedness of] his father, and both the man and his father’s wife must be put to death. They have brought ·it [L blood] on themselves [18:8; Deut. 22:30].
If a man sleepeth with his step-dame, and showeth his father’s shame, both they die by death; their blood be on them. (If a man sleepeth with his step-mother, and uncovereth her nakedness, which is for his father alone, they both shall be put to death; their blood be on them.)
