one And the Lord said unto Moses, saying:
2 Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them: I am the Lord your God.
3 For the affairs of the land of Egypt in which you lived, do not act, and for the affairs of the land of Canaan, into which I lead you, do not act, and according to their decrees do not go:
four Follow my laws and obey my decrees by acting on them. I am the Lord your God.
5 Observe My decrees and My laws, which, when fulfilled, man will live. I am the Lord.

6 No one should approach any relative in the flesh in order to reveal nudity. I am the Lord.
7 Do not reveal the nakedness of your father and the nakedness of your mother: she is your mother; do not reveal her nakedness.
8 Do not reveal the nakedness of the wife of your father: it is the nakedness of your father.
9 The nudity of your sister, the daughter of your father or the daughter of your mother who was born in the house or outside the house, do not reveal their nakedness.
10 The nakedness of the daughter of your son or the daughter of your daughter, do not reveal their nakedness, for they are your nakedness.
eleven The nudity of the daughter of your father’s wife, born of your father, she is your sister [by father], do not reveal her nudity.
12 Do not reveal the nudity of your father’s sister, she’s half-hearted to your father.
13 Do not reveal the nudity of your mother’s sister, for she is the mother of your mother.
fourteen Do not reveal the nudity of your father’s brother and do not approach his wife: she is your aunt.
fifteen Do not open the nudity of your daughter-in-law: she is the wife of your son, do not open her nakedness.
16 Do not open the nudity of your brother’s wife, this is your brother’s nudity.
17 Do not open the nakedness of the wife and daughter; do not take the daughters of her son and the daughters of her daughter to reveal their nakedness, they are her consanguineous; it is lawlessness.
eighteen Do not take your wife with her sister, to make her a rival, to open her nudity with her, during her lifetime.

19 And do not come near your wife during the purification of her sewage to reveal her nakedness.
twenty And do not go to bed with your neighbor's wife to pour out the seed and defile it.
21 Of your children, do not give to the service of Moloch and not dishonor the name of your God. I am the Lord.
22 Do not go to bed with a man as a woman: this is an abomination.
23 And do not go to bed with any cattle to pour out [the seed] and be defiled from it; and a woman should not stand before the cattle to copulate with him: this is vile.
24 Do not defile yourself with anything of this, for the nations whom I drive away from you have defiled themselves with all this:
25 and the land was defiled, and I looked upon its iniquity, and the land of those who dwelt on it overthrew.
26 But you observe My decrees and My laws and do not do all these abominations, neither a native nor an alien living between you,
27 for all these abominations were done by the people of this land that is before you, and the earth was defiled;
28 lest the earth also overthrow you when you begin to defile it, as it has overthrown the nations that were before you;
29th for if anyone does all these abominations, then the souls of those who do this will be destroyed from his people.
thirty Therefore, obey My commandments, so as not to act according to the vile customs that have been done before you, and not to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.
