Leviticus 20


1  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

2  Again, thou shalt say559 to413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 Whosoever376 376 he be of the children4480 1121 of Israel,3478 or of4480 the strangers1616 that sojourn1481 in Israel,3478 that834 giveth5414 any of his seed4480 2233 unto Molech;4432 he shall surely be put to death:4191 4191 the people5971 of the land776 shall stone7275 him with stones.68

3  And I589 will set5414 853 my face6440 against that1931 man,376 and will cut him off3772 853 from among4480 7130 his people;5971 because3588 he hath given5414 of his seed4480 2233 unto Molech,4432 to4616 defile2930 853 my sanctuary,4720 and to profane2490 853 my holy6944 name.8034

4  And if518 the people5971 of the land776 do any ways hide5956 5956 853 their eyes5869 from the man,4480 376 1931 when he giveth5414 of his seed4480 2233 unto Molech,4432 and kill4191 him not:1115

5  Then I589 will set7760 853 my face6440 against that1931 man,376 and against his family,4940 and will cut him off,3772 853 and all3605 that go a whoring2181 after310 him, to commit whoredom2181 with310 Molech,4432 from among4480 7130 their people.5971

6  And the soul5315 that834 turneth6437 after413 such as have familiar spirits,178 and after413 wizards,3049 to go a whoring2181 after310 them, I will even set5414 853 my face6440 against that1931 soul,5315 and will cut him off3772 853 from among4480 7130 his people.5971

7  Sanctify yourselves6942 therefore, and be1961 ye holy:6918 for3588 I589 am the LORD3068 your God.430

8  And ye shall keep8104 853 my statutes,2708 and do6213 them: I589 am the LORD3068 which sanctify6942 you.

9  For3588 every one376 376 that834 curseth7043 853 his father1 or his mother517 shall be surely put to death:4191 4191 he hath cursed7043 his father1 or his mother;517 his blood1818 shall be upon him.

10  And the man376 that834 committeth adultery5003 with854 another man's376 wife,802 even he that834 committeth adultery5003 with854 his neighbor's7453 wife,802 the adulterer5003 and the adulteress5003 shall surely be put to death.4191 4191

11  And the man376 that834 lieth7901 with854 his father's1 wife802 hath uncovered1540 his father's1 nakedness:6172 both8147 of them shall surely be put to death;4191 4191 their blood1818 shall be upon them.

12  And if834 a man376 lie7901 with854 his daughter-in-law,3618 both8147 of them shall surely be put to death:4191 4191 they have wrought6213 confusion;8397 their blood1818 shall be upon them.

13  If834 a man376 also lie7901 with854 mankind,2145 as he lieth4904 with a woman,802 both8147 of them have committed6213 an abomination:8441 they shall surely be put to death;4191 4191 their blood1818 shall be upon them.

14  And if834 a man376 take3947 853 a wife802 and her mother,517 it1931 is wickedness:2154 they shall be burnt8313 with fire,784 both he and they; that there be1961 no3808 wickedness2154 among8432 you.

15  And if834 a man376 lie5414 7903 with a beast,929 he shall surely be put to death:4191 4191 and ye shall slay2026 the beast.929

16  And if834 a woman802 approach7126 unto413 any3605 beast,929 and lie down7250 thereto, thou shalt kill2026 853 the woman,802 and the beast:929 they shall surely be put to death;4191 4191 their blood1818 shall be upon them.

17  And if834 a man376 shall take3947 853 his sister,269 his father's1 daughter,1323 or176 his mother's517 daughter,1323 and see7200 853 her nakedness,6172 and she1931 see7200 853 his nakedness;6172 it1931 is a wicked thing;2617 and they shall be cut off3772 in the sight5869 of their people:1121 5971 he hath uncovered1540 his sister's269 nakedness;6172 he shall bear5375 his iniquity.5771

18  And if834 a man376 shall lie7901 with854 a woman802 having her sickness,1739 and shall uncover1540 853 her nakedness;6172 he hath discovered6168 853 her fountain,4726 and she1931 hath uncovered1540 853 the fountain4726 of her blood:1818 and both8147 of them shall be cut off3772 from among4480 7130 their people.5971

19  And thou shalt not3808 uncover1540 the nakedness6172 of thy mother's517 sister,269 nor of thy father's1 sister:269 for3588 he uncovereth6168 853 his near kin:7607 they shall bear5375 their iniquity.5771

20  And if834 a man376 shall lie7901 with854 his uncle's wife,1733 he hath uncovered1540 his uncle's1730 nakedness:6172 they shall bear5375 their sin;2399 they shall die4191 childless.6185

21  And if834 a man376 shall take3947 853 his brother's251 wife,802 it1931 is an unclean thing:5079 he hath uncovered1540 his brother's251 nakedness;6172 they shall be1961 childless.6185

22  Ye shall therefore keep8104 853 all3605 my statutes,2708 and all3605 my judgments,4941 and do6213 them: that the land,776 whither834 8033 I589 bring935 you to dwell3427 therein, spew you not out.6958 853 3808

23  And ye shall not3808 walk1980 in the manners2708 of the nation,1471 which834 I589 cast out7971 before4480 6440 you: for3588 they committed6213 853 all3605 these things,428 and therefore I abhorred6973 them.

24  But I have said559 unto you, Ye859 shall inherit3423 853 their land,127 and I589 will give5414 it unto you to possess3423 it, a land776 that floweth2100 with milk2461 and honey:1706 I589 am the LORD3068 your God,430 which834 have separated914 you from4480 other people.5971

25  Ye shall therefore put difference914 between996 clean2889 beasts929 and unclean,2931 and between996 unclean2931 fowls5775 and clean:2889 and ye shall not3808 make your souls abominable8262 853 5315 by beast,929 or by fowl,5775 or by any manner3605 of living thing that creepeth7430 834 on the ground,127 which834 I have separated914 from you as unclean.2930

26  And ye shall be1961 holy6918 unto me: for3588 I589 the LORD3068 am holy,6918 and have severed914 you from4480 other people,5971 that ye should be1961 mine.

27  A man376 also or176 woman802 that3588 hath1961 a familiar spirit,178 or176 that is a wizard,3049 shall surely be put to death:4191 4191 they shall stone7275 them with stones:68 their blood1818 shall be upon them.


1 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

2 καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ λαλήσεις ἐάν τις ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἢ ἀπὸ τῶν προσγεγενημένων προσηλύτων ἐν Ισραηλ ὃς ἂν δῷ τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτοῦ ἄρχοντι θανάτῳ θανατούσθω τὸ ἔθνος τὸ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς λιθοβολήσουσιν αὐτὸν ἐν λίθοις

3 καὶ ἐγὼ ἐπιστήσω τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὸν ἄνθρωπον ἐκεῖνον καὶ ἀπολῶ αὐτὸν ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ ὅτι τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτοῦ ἔδωκεν ἄρχοντι ἵνα μιάνῃ τὰ ἅγιά μου καὶ βεβηλώσῃ τὸ ὄνομα τῶν ἡγιασμένων μοι

4 ἐὰν δὲ ὑπερόψει ὑπερίδωσιν οἱ αὐτόχθονες τῆς γῆς τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐκείνου ἐν τῷ δοῦναι αὐτὸν τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτοῦ ἄρχοντι τοῦ μὴ ἀποκτεῖναι αὐτόν

5 καὶ ἐπιστήσω τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὸν ἄνθρωπον ἐκεῖνον καὶ τὴν συγγένειαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπολῶ αὐτὸν καὶ πάντας τοὺς ὁμονοοῦντας αὐτῷ ὥστε ἐκπορνεύειν αὐτὸν εἰς τοὺς ἄρχοντας ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτῶν

6 καὶ ψυχή ἣ ἐὰν ἐπακολουθήσῃ ἐγγαστριμύθοις ἢ ἐπαοιδοῖς ὥστε ἐκπορνεῦσαι ὀπίσω αὐτῶν ἐπιστήσω τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἐπὶ τὴν ψυχὴν ἐκείνην καὶ ἀπολῶ αὐτὴν ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτῆς

7 καὶ ἔσεσθε ἅγιοι ὅτι ἅγιος ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν

8 καὶ φυλάξεσθε τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ ποιήσετε αὐτά ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ ἁγιάζων ὑμᾶς

9 ἄνθρωπος ἄνθρωπος ὃς ἂν κακῶς εἴπῃ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ ἢ τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ θανάτῳ θανατούσθω πατέρα αὐτοῦ ἢ μητέρα αὐτοῦ κακῶς εἶπεν ἔνοχος ἔσται

10 ἄνθρωπος ὃς ἂν μοιχεύσηται γυναῖκα ἀνδρὸς ἢ ὃς ἂν μοιχεύσηται γυναῖκα τοῦ πλησίον θανάτῳ θανατούσθωσαν ὁ μοιχεύων καὶ ἡ μοιχευομένη

11 ἐάν τις κοιμηθῇ μετὰ γυναικὸς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἀσχημοσύνην τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἀπεκάλυψεν θανάτῳ θανατούσθωσαν ἀμφότεροι ἔνοχοί εἰσιν

12 καὶ ἐάν τις κοιμηθῇ μετὰ νύμφης αὐτοῦ θανάτῳ θανατούσθωσαν ἀμφότεροι ἠσεβήκασιν γάρ ἔνοχοί εἰσιν

13 καὶ ὃς ἂν κοιμηθῇ μετὰ ἄρσενος κοίτην γυναικός βδέλυγμα ἐποίησαν ἀμφότεροι θανατούσθωσαν ἔνοχοί εἰσιν

14 ὃς ἐὰν λάβῃ γυναῖκα καὶ τὴν μητέρα αὐτῆς ἀνόμημά ἐστιν ἐν πυρὶ κατακαύσουσιν αὐτὸν καὶ αὐτάς καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ἀνομία ἐν ὑμῖν

15 καὶ ὃς ἂν δῷ κοιτασίαν αὐτοῦ ἐν τετράποδι θανάτῳ θανατούσθω καὶ τὸ τετράπουν ἀποκτενεῖτε

16 καὶ γυνή ἥτις προσελεύσεται πρὸς πᾶν κτῆνος βιβασθῆναι αὐτὴν ὑπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἀποκτενεῖτε τὴν γυναῖκα καὶ τὸ κτῆνος θανάτῳ θανατούσθωσαν ἔνοχοί εἰσιν

17 ὃς ἐὰν λάβῃ τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτοῦ ἐκ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἢ ἐκ μητρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἴδῃ τὴν ἀσχημοσύνην αὐτῆς καὶ αὕτη ἴδῃ τὴν ἀσχημοσύνην αὐτοῦ ὄνειδός ἐστιν ἐξολεθρευθήσονται ἐνώπιον υἱῶν γένους αὐτῶν ἀσχημοσύνην ἀδελφῆς αὐτοῦ ἀπεκάλυψεν ἁμαρτίαν κομιοῦνται

18 καὶ ἀνήρ ὃς ἂν κοιμηθῇ μετὰ γυναικὸς ἀποκαθημένης καὶ ἀποκαλύψῃ τὴν ἀσχημοσύνην αὐτῆς τὴν πηγὴν αὐτῆς ἀπεκάλυψεν καὶ αὕτη ἀπεκάλυψεν τὴν ῥύσιν τοῦ αἵματος αὐτῆς ἐξολεθρευθήσονται ἀμφότεροι ἐκ τοῦ γένους αὐτῶν

19 καὶ ἀσχημοσύνην ἀδελφῆς πατρός σου καὶ ἀδελφῆς μητρός σου οὐκ ἀποκαλύψεις τὴν γὰρ οἰκειότητα ἀπεκάλυψεν ἁμαρτίαν ἀποίσονται

20 ὃς ἂν κοιμηθῇ μετὰ τῆς συγγενοῦς αὐτοῦ ἀσχημοσύνην τῆς συγγενείας αὐτοῦ ἀπεκάλυψεν ἄτεκνοι ἀποθανοῦνται

21 ὃς ἂν λάβῃ τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ ἀκαθαρσία ἐστίν ἀσχημοσύνην τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ ἀπεκάλυψεν ἄτεκνοι ἀποθανοῦνται

22 καὶ φυλάξασθε πάντα τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰ κρίματά μου καὶ ποιήσετε αὐτά καὶ οὐ μὴ προσοχθίσῃ ὑμῖν ἡ γῆ εἰς ἣν ἐγὼ εἰσάγω ὑμᾶς ἐκεῖ κατοικεῖν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς

23 καὶ οὐχὶ πορεύεσθε τοῖς νομίμοις τῶν ἐθνῶν οὓς ἐξαποστέλλω ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν ὅτι ταῦτα πάντα ἐποίησαν καὶ ἐβδελυξάμην αὐτούς

24 καὶ εἶπα ὑμῖν ὑμεῖς κληρονομήσατε τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐγὼ δώσω ὑμῖν αὐτὴν ἐν κτήσει γῆν ῥέουσαν γάλα καὶ μέλι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ὃς διώρισα ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν

25 καὶ ἀφοριεῖτε αὐτοὺς ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν κτηνῶν τῶν καθαρῶν καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν κτηνῶν τῶν ἀκαθάρτων καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν πετεινῶν τῶν καθαρῶν καὶ τῶν ἀκαθάρτων καὶ οὐ βδελύξετε τὰς ψυχὰς ὑμῶν ἐν τοῖς κτήνεσιν καὶ ἐν τοῖς πετεινοῖς καὶ ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἑρπετοῖς τῆς γῆς ἃ ἐγὼ ἀφώρισα ὑμῖν ἐν ἀκαθαρσίᾳ

26 καὶ ἔσεσθέ μοι ἅγιοι ὅτι ἐγὼ ἅγιος κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ὁ ἀφορίσας ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν εἶναι ἐμοί

27 καὶ ἀνὴρ ἢ γυνή ὃς ἂν γένηται αὐτῶν ἐγγαστρίμυθος ἢ ἐπαοιδός θανάτῳ θανατούσθωσαν ἀμφότεροι λίθοις λιθοβολήσατε αὐτούς ἔνοχοί εἰσιν

1 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

2 Hæc loqueris filiis Israël: Homo de filiis Israël, et de advenis qui habitant in Israël, si quis dederit de semine suo idolo Moloch, morte moriatur: populus terræ lapidabit eum.

3 Et ego ponam faciem meam contra illum: succidamque eum de medio populi sui, eo quod dederit de semine suo Moloch, et contaminaverit sanctuarium meum, ac polluerit nomen sanctum meum.

4 Quod si negligens populus terræ, et quasi parvipendens imperium meum, dimiserit hominem qui dedit de semine suo Moloch, nec voluerit eum occidere:

5 ponam faciem meam super hominem illum, et super cognationem ejus, succidamque et ipsum, et omnes qui consenserunt ei ut fornicarentur cum Moloch, de medio populi sui.

6 Anima, quæ declinaverit ad magos et ariolos, et fornicata fuerit cum eis, ponam faciem meam contra eam, et interficiam illam de medio populi sui.

7 Sanctificamini et estote sancti, quia ego sum Dominus Deus vester.

8 Custodite præcepta mea, et facite ea: ego Dominus qui sanctifico vos.

9 Qui maledixerit patri suo, aut matri, morte moriatur: patri matrique maledixit: sanguis ejus sit super eum.

10 Si mœchatus quis fuerit cum uxore alterius, et adulterium perpetraverit cum conjuge proximi sui, morte moriantur et mœchus et adultera.

11 Qui dormierit cum noverca sua, et revelaverit ignominiam patris sui, morte moriantur ambo: sanguis eorum sit super eos.

12 Si quis dormierit cum nuru sua, uterque moriatur, quia scelus operati sunt: sanguis eorum sit super eos.

13 Qui dormierit cum masculo coitu femineo, uterque operatus est nefas: morte moriantur: sit sanguis eorum super eos.

14 Qui supra uxorem filiam, duxerit matrem ejus, scelus operatus est: vivus ardebit cum eis, nec permanebit tantum nefas in medio vestri.

15 Qui cum jumento et pecore coierit, morte moriatur: pecus quoque occidite.

16 Mulier, quæ succubuerit cuilibet jumento, simul interficietur cum eo: sanguis eorum sit super eos.

17 Qui acceperit sororem suam filiam patris sui, vel filiam matris suæ, et viderit turpitudinem ejus, illaque conspexerit fratris ignominiam, nefariam rem operati sunt: occidentur in conspectu populi sui, eo quod turpitudinem suam mutuo revelaverint, et portabunt iniquitatem suam.

18 Qui coierit cum muliere in fluxu menstruo, et revelaverit turpitudinem ejus, ipsaque aperuerit fontem sanguinis sui, interficientur ambo de medio populi sui.

19 Turpitudinem materteræ et amitæ tuæ non discooperies: qui hoc fecerit, ignominiam carnis suæ nudavit; portabunt ambo iniquitatem suam.

20 Qui coierit cum uxore patrui vel avunculi sui, et revelaverit ignominiam cognationis suæ, portabunt ambo peccatum suum: absque liberis morientur.

21 Qui duxerit uxorem fratris sui, rem facit illicitam: turpitudinem fratris sui revelavit: absque liberis erunt.

22 Custodite leges meas, atque judicia, et facite ea: ne et vos evomat terra quam intraturi estis et habitaturi.

23 Nolite ambulare in legitimis nationum, quas ego expulsurus sum ante vos. Omnia enim hæc fecerunt, et abominatus sum eas.

24 Vobis autem loquor. Possidete terram eorum, quam dabo vobis in hæreditatem, terram fluentem lacte et melle. Ego Dominus Deus vester, qui separavi vos a ceteris populis.

25 Separate ergo et vos jumentum mundum ab immundo, et avem mundam ab immunda: ne polluatis animas vestras in pecore, et avibus, et cunctis quæ moventur in terra, et quæ vobis ostendi esse polluta.

26 Eritis mihi sancti, quia sanctus sum ego Dominus, et separavi vos a ceteris populis, ut essetis mei.

27 Vir, sive mulier, in quibus pythonicus, vel divinationis fuerit spiritus, morte moriantur: lapidibus obruent eos: sanguis eorum sit super illos.
