|Leviticus 18:1-5,24-30 |
1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2 "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, I am the LORD your God.
3 You will not follow the ways of the land of Egypt in which you dwelled, neither will you follow after the ways of the land of Canaan, where I bring you; neither shall you walk in their ordinances.
4 You will follow my statutes and keep my ordinances, walking in them for I am the LORD your God.
5 You will therefore keep my statutes, and my ordinances, which, if a man does, he shall live by them; I am the LORD.
24 Do not defile not yourselves in any of these things; for in all these things the nations are defiled which I am driving out before you.
25 And the land is defiled, therefore I visit its iniquity upon it, and the land itself vomits out her inhabitants.
26 You will therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that dwells among you.
27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled);
28 That the land does not spew you out also, when you defile it, as it spewed out the nations that were before you.
29 For whoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
30 Therefore shall you keep my ordinance, that you commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves in it; I am the LORD your God."
