1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 And to the sons of Israel thou shalt say, A man, a man from the sons of Israel and from the sojourners who sojourn in Israel, who gives from his seed to Molech, dying he shall be put·​·to·​·death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

3 And I will put My face against that man, and will cut· him ·off from among his people; because he has given of his seed to Molech, in·​·order·​·to defile My sanctuary, and to profane My holy name.

4 And if hiding the people of the land do hide their eyes from that man, when he gives from his seed to Molech, putting· him not ·to·​·death;

5 then I will set My face against that man, and against his family, and will cut· him ·off, and all who commit·​·harlotry after him, to commit·​·harlotry after Molech, from among their people.

6 And the soul who turns· the ·face to mediums, and to soothsayers, to commit·​·harlotry after them, I also will put My face against that soul, and will cut· him ·off from among his people.

7 And sanctify yourselves, and be ye holy; for I am Jehovah your God.

8 And you shall keep My statutes, and do them; I am Jehovah who is sanctifying you.

9 For a man, a man who reviles his father and his mother, dying he shall be made to die; he has reviled his father and his mother; his blood shall be on him.

10 And the man who commits·​·adultery with another man’s wife, even he who commits·​·adultery with the wife of his companion, the adulterer and the adulteress dying shall be·​·put·​·to·​·death.

11 And the man who lies with the wife of his father has revealed the nakedness of his father; the two of them dying shall be·​·put·​·to·​·death; their bloods* shall be on them.

12 And a man that lie with his daughter-in-law, the two of them dying shall be put·​·to·​·death; they have done confusion; their bloods shall be on them.

13 And a man that lie with a male as he would lie with a woman, the two of them have done an abomination; dying they shall be put·​·to·​·death; their bloods shall be on them.

14 And when a man takes a woman and her mother, it is a crime; they shall be burnt·​·up with fire, both he and they; and there shall not be crime in your midst.

15 And a man who gives himself to lie with a beast, dying he shall be·​·put·​·to·​·death; and you shall kill the beast.

16 And a woman that comes·​·near to any beast to lie·​·down with it, then thou shalt kill the woman and the beast; dying they shall be put·​·to·​·death; their bloods shall be on them.

17 And a man who takes his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother, and sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness, it is a wicked thing*, and they shall be cut·​·off before the eyes of the sons of their people; he has revealed the nakedness of his sister; he shall bear his iniquity.

18 And a man who lies with a woman with infirmity, and shall reveal her nakedness; he has made·​·naked her issue, and she has revealed the issue of her blood; and the two of them shall be cut·​·off from among their people.

19 And thou shalt not reveal the nakedness of the sister of thy mother, nor the sister of thy father; for he has made·​·naked his own kin; they shall bear their iniquity.

20 And a man who lies with his aunt, he has revealed the nakedness of his uncle; they shall bear their sin; they shall·​·die childless.

21 And a man who takes the wife of his brother, and she is isolated; he has revealed the nakedness of his brother; they shall be childless.

22 And you shall keep all My statutes, and all My judgments, and do them; that the land, whither I bring you to dwell in her, vomit· you not ·out.

23 And you shall not walk in the statutes of the nation that I sent·​·out from before you; for they did all of these things, and I loathed them.

24 But I have said to you, You shall possess their ground, and I will give it to you to possess it, a land that flows with milk and honey; I am Jehovah your God, who distinguished you from other people.

25 And you shall distinguish between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean; and you shall not make your souls be·​·detestable by the beast, or by the fowl, or by any thing that creeps on the ground, which I distinguished for you to be·​·unclean.

26 And you shall be holy to Me; for I, Jehovah, am holy, and distinguished you from other people, that you should be Mine.

27 And a man or a woman that is a medium, or a soothsayer, among them, dying shall be·​·put·​·to·​·death; they shall stone them with stones; their bloods shall be on them.

Explanation of Leviticus 20      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

On the profanation of the truth by selfish love; and its consequences to those who are guilty of it and to those who excuse it. Verses 1-5.

The danger of unlawful exchange with spirits. Verse 6.

The necessity of a holy life, internally and externally, and the consequences of aversion from Divine Good and Divine Truth. Verses 7-9.

The consequences of the profanation of good and truth in various ways. Verses 10-21.

The necessity of obedience, and the danger of disobedience to the spiritual laws of Divine Order. Verses 22-24.

Also man must carefully distinguish between pure and impure affections and thoughts; he must be holy and pure, because he has been separated from evils and falsities; and he must remember that those who pervert good and truth by the abuse of the laws of order, internally or externally, totally vastate themselves. Verses 25-27.
