Leviticus 20:17-21

Context

20:17 “‘If a man has sexual intercourse with 4  his sister, whether the daughter of his father or his mother, so that he sees her nakedness and she sees his nakedness, it is a disgrace. They must be cut off in the sight of the children of their people. 5  He has exposed his sister’s nakedness; he will bear his punishment for iniquity. 6  20:18 If a man has sexual intercourse with a menstruating woman and uncovers her nakedness, he has laid bare her fountain of blood and she has exposed the fountain of her blood, so both of them 7  must be cut off from the midst of their people. 20:19 You must not expose the nakedness of your mother’s sister and your father’s sister, for such a person has laid bare his own close relative. 8  They must bear their punishment for iniquity. 9  20:20 If a man has sexual intercourse with his aunt, he has exposed his uncle’s nakedness; they must bear responsibility for their sin, they will die childless. 20:21 If a man has sexual intercourse with 10  his brother’s wife, it is indecency. He has exposed his brother’s nakedness; 11  they will be childless.
