Deuteronomy 22:30

Context

22:30 (23:1) 6  A man may not marry 7  his father’s former 8  wife and in this way dishonor his father. 9 

Deuteronomy 27:22

Context
27:22 ‘Cursed is the one who has sexual relations with his sister, the daughter of either his father or mother.’ Then all the people will say, ‘Amen!’

1 tn Heb “lying with” (so KJV, NASB), a Hebrew idiom for sexual relations.

2 tn Heb “a woman married to a husband.”

3 tn Heb “burn.” See note on the phrase “purge out” in Deut 21:21.

4 tn Heb “finds.”

5 tn Heb “lies with.”

6 sn Beginning with 22:30, the verse numbers through 23:25 in the English Bible differ from the verse numbers in the Hebrew text (BHS), with 22:30 ET = 23:1 HT, 23:1 ET = 23:2 HT, 23:2 ET = 23:3 HT, etc., through 23:25 ET = 23:26 HT. With 24:1 the verse numbers in the ET and HT are again the same.

7 tn Heb “take.” In context this refers to marriage, as in the older English expression “take a wife.”

8 sn This presupposes either the death of the father or their divorce since it would be impossible for one to marry his stepmother while his father was still married to her.

9 tn Heb “uncover his father’s skirt” (so ASV, NASB). This appears to be a circumlocution for describing the dishonor that would come to a father by having his own son share his wife’s sexuality (cf. NAB, NIV “dishonor his father’s bed”).
