1Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 2'Say to the Israelites: "Anyone, be he Israelite or alien resident in Israel, who gives any of his childrento Molech, wil be put to death. The people of the country must stone him, 3and I shall set my face against that man and outlaw him from his people; for by giving a child of his toMolech he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. 4If the people of the country choose to close their eyes to the man's action when he gives a child of histo Molech, and do not put him to death, 5I myself shal turn my face against that man and his clan. I shal outlaw them from their people, bothhim and all those after him who prostitute themselves by fol owing Molech. 6"If anyone has recourse to the spirits of the dead or to magicians, to prostitute himself by followingthem, I shal set my face against him and outlaw him from his people. 7"Sanctify yourselves and be holy, for I am Yahweh your God. 8"You wil keep my laws and put them into practice, for it is I, Yahweh, who make you holy. 9Hence: "Anyone who curses father or mother wil be put to death. Having cursed father or mother, theblood wil be on that person's own head. 10"The man who commits adultery with his neighbour's wife wil be put to death, he and the woman. 11"The man who has intercourse with his father's wife has infringed his father's sexual prerogative. Bothof them wil be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. 12"The man who has intercourse with his daughter-in-law: both of them wil be put to death; they haveviolated nature, their blood wil be on their own heads. 13"The man who has intercourse with a man in the same way as with a woman: they have done ahateful thing together; they wil be put to death; their blood wil be on their own heads. 14"The man who marries a woman and her mother: this is incest. They wil be burnt alive, he and they;you wil not tolerate incest. 15"The man who has intercourse with an animal will be put to death; you wil kil the animal too. 16"The woman who approaches any animal to have intercourse with it: you will kil the woman and theanimal. They wil be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. 17"The man who marries his father's or his mother's daughter: if they have intercourse together, this isan outrage. They wil be executed in public, for the man has had intercourse with his sister; he wil bear theconsequences of his guilt. 18"The man who has intercourse with a woman during her monthly periods and exposes hernakedness: he has laid bare the source of her blood, and she has exposed the source of her blood, and both ofthem wil be outlawed from their people. 19"You will not have intercourse with your mother's sister or your father's sister. Whoever does so, hashad intercourse with a close relation; they wil bear the consequences of their guilt. 20"The man who has intercourse with the wife of his paternal uncle has infringed his uncle's sexualprerogative; they wil bear the consequences of their guilt and die childless. 21"The man who marries his brother's wife: this is pol ution; he has infringed his brother's sexualprerogative; they wil die childless. 22"You will keep al my laws, al my decisions, and put them into practice, so that the country where Iam taking you to live wil not vomit you out. 23You wil not fol ow the laws of the nations whom I am driving out before you; they practised al thesethings, which is why I detested them. 24As I have already told you, you wil take possession of their soil, I myself shal give you possession ofit, a country flowing with milk and honey. "Since I, Yahweh your God, have set you apart from these peoples, 25you for your part wil make a distinction between clean animals and unclean ones and betweenunclean birds and clean ones, and wil not make yourselves detestable with any animal or bird or reptile, which Ihave set apart from you as unclean. 26"Be consecrated to me, for I, Yahweh, am holy, and I shall set you apart from all these peoples, foryou to be mine. 27"Any man or woman of yours who is a necromancer or magician will be put to death; they wil bestoned to death; their blood wil be on their own heads."
