Marriage is prohibited in certain degrees of kindred: and all unnatural lusts.

 1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
Locutus est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens :

 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them: I am the Lord your God.
Loquere filiis Israel, et dices ad eos : Ego Dominus Deus vester :

 3 You shall not do according to the custom of the land of Egypt, in which you dwelt: neither shall you act according to the manner of the country of Chanaan, into which I will bring you, nor shall you walk in their ordinances.
juxta consuetudinem terrae Aegypti, in qua habitastis, non facietis : et juxta morem regionis Chanaan, ad quam ego introducturus sum vos, non agetis, nec in legitimis eorum ambulabitis.

 4 You shall do my judgments, and shall observe my precepts, and shall walk in them. I am the Lord your God.
Facietis judicia mea, et praecepta mea servabitis, et ambulabitis in eis. Ego Dominus Deus vester.

 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination.
Cum masculo non commiscearis coitu femineo, quia abominatio est.

Nec polluamini in omnibus his quibus contaminatae sunt universae gentes, quas ego ejiciam ante conspectum vestrum,

 25 And with which the land is defiled: the abominations of which I will visit, that it may vomit out its inhabitants.

Cavete ergo ne et vos similiter evomat, cum paria feceritis, sicut evomuit gentem, quae fuit ante vos.

 29 Every soul that shall commit any of these abominations, shall perish from the midst of his people.
Omnis anima, quae fecerit de abominationibus his quippiam, peribit de medio populi sui.

 30 Keep my commandments. Do not the things which they have done, that have been before you, and be not defiled therein. I am the Lord your God.
