Chapter 20

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)

Compare

      And the Lord talked with Moses saying: tell the children of Israel, whosoever he be of the children of Israel or of the strangers that dwell in Israel, that giveth of his seed unto *Moloch he shall die for it: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. And I will set my face upon that fellow, and will destroy him from among his people: because he hath given of his seed unto Moloch, for to defile my sanctuary and to pollute mine holy name. And though that the people of the land hide their eyes from that fellow, when he giveth of his seed unto Moloch, so that they kill him not: yet I will put my face upon that man and upon his generation, and will destroy him and all that go a whoring with him and commit whoredom with Moloch from among their people.
      If any soul turn unto him to enchanters or expounders of tokens and go a whoring after them, I will put my face upon that soul and will destroy him from among his people. Sanctify yourselves therefore and be holy, for I am the Lord your God. And see that ye keep mine ordinances and do them. For I am the Lord which sanctify you.
      Whosoever curseth his father or mother, shall die for it, his blood on his head, because he hath cursed his father or mother. He that breaketh wedlock with another mans wife shall die for it, because he hath broke wedlock with his neighbors wife, and so shall she likewise. If a man lie with his fathers wife and uncover his fathers secrets, they shall both die for it, their blood be upon their heads. If a man lie with his daughter in law they shall die both of them: they have wrought abomination, their blood upon their heads. If a man lie with the mankind after the manner as with womankind, they have both committed an abomination and shall die for it. Their blood be upon their heads.
      If a man take a wife and her mother thereto, it is wickedness. Men shall burn with fire both him and them, that there be no wickedness among you. If a man lie with a beast he shall die, and ye shall slay the beast.
      If a woman go unto a beast and lie down thereto: thou shalt kill the woman and the beast also, they shall die, and their blood be upon their heads. If a man take his sister, his fathers daughter or his mothers daughter, and see her secrets, and she see his secrets also: it is a wicked thing. Therefore let them perish in the sight of their people, he hath seen his sisters secretness, he shall therefore bear his sin. If a man lie with a woman in time of her natural disease and uncover her secrets and open her fountain, and she also open the fountain of her blood, they shall both perish from among their people. Thou shalt not uncover the secrets of thy mothers sister nor of thy fathers sister, for he that doth so, uncovereth his next kin: and they shall bear their misdoing.
      If a man lie with his uncles wife, he hath uncovered his uncles secrets: they shall bear their sin, and shall die childless.
      If a man take his brothers wife, it is an unclean thing, he hath uncovered his brothers secrets, they shall be childless therefore.
      See that ye keep therefore all mine ordinances and all my judgements, and that ye do them: that the land whither I bring you to dwell therein, spew you not out. And see that ye walk not in the manners of the nations which I cast out before you: For they committed all these things, and I abhorred them.
      But I have said unto you that ye shall enjoy their land, and that I will give it unto you to possess it: even a land that floweth with milk and honey. I am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other nations: that ye should put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and them that are clean. Make not your souls therefore abominable with beasts and fowls, and with all manner thing that creepeth upon the ground, which I have separated unto you to hold them unclean. Be holy unto me, for I the Lord am holy and have severed you from other nations: that ye should be mine.
      If there be man or woman that worketh with a spirit or expoundeth tokens they shall die for it. Men shall stone them with stones, and their blood shall be upon them.


*Marginal note: MN Moloch, under this name molock is forbidden all manner of idolatry, specially the exercising of children thereto for that is an abomination before the Lord. Molock was an Idol of the children of Ammnon, whose Image was hollow, having in it seven closets, one was to offer in fine flour, another for turtle doves, the third for sheep, the fourth for a ram, the fifth for a calf, the sixth for an ox, and for him that would offer his son was opened the seventh closet. And the face of this Idol was like the face of a calf, his hands made plain ready to receive of them that stood by.
