Leviticus 18:19-20


18:19 “‘You must not approach a woman in her menstrual impurity 1  to have sexual intercourse with her. 18:20 You must not have sexual intercourse 2  with the wife of your fellow citizen to become unclean with her.

1 tn Heb “in the menstruation of her impurity”; NIV “during the uncleanness of her monthly period.”

2 tn Heb “And to the wife of your fellow citizen you shall not give your layer for seed.” The meaning of “your layer” (שְׁכָבְתְּךָ, shÿkhavtÿkha) is uncertain (see B. A. Levine, Leviticus [JPSTC], 122, “you shall not place your layer of semen”; but cf. also J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 283, and the literature cited there for the rendering, “you shall not give your penis for seed”).
