 New English Bible Leviticus:20Biblia Hebraica (Stuttgartensia) | BHS (pdf - 3.5mb)  

1 The LORD spoke to Moses and said, Penalties. Lv.20.1-27וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר׃
2 Say to the Israelites: Any Israelite or alien settled in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall be put to death: the common people shall stone him.  וְאֶל־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל תֹּאמַר אִישׁ אִישׁ מִבְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וּמִן־הַגֵּר הַגָּר בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר יִתֵּן מִזַּרְעֹו לַמֹּלֶךְ מֹות יוּמָת עַם הָאָרֶץ יִרְגְּמֻהוּ בָאָבֶן׃
3 I, for my part, set my face against that man and cut him off from his people, because he has given a child of his to Molech, thus making my sanctuary unclean and profaning my holy name.  וַאֲנִי אֶתֵּן אֶת־פָּנַי בָּאִישׁ הַהוּא וְהִכְרַתִּי אֹתֹו מִקֶּרֶב עַמֹּו כִּי מִזַּרְעֹו נָתַן לַמֹּלֶךְ לְמַעַן טַמֵּא אֶת־מִקְדָּשִׁי וּלְחַלֵּל אֶת־שֵׁם קָדְשִׁי׃
4 If the common people connive at it when a man has given a child of his to Molech and do not put him to death,  וְאִם הַעְלֵם יַעְלִימוּ עַם הָאָרֶץ אֶת־עֵינֵיהֶם מִן־הָאִישׁ הַהוּא בְּתִתֹּו מִזַּרְעֹו לַמֹּלֶךְ לְבִלְתִּי הָמִית אֹתֹו׃
5 I will set my face against man and family, and both him and all who follow him in his wanton following after Molech [Or in his lusting after human sacrifice], I will cut off from their people.

 וְשַׂמְתִּי אֲנִי אֶת־פָּנַי בָּאִישׁ הַהוּא וּבְמִשְׁפַּחְתֹּו וְהִכְרַתִּי אֹתֹו וְאֵת כָּל־הַזֹּנִים אַחֲרָיו לִזְנֹות אַחֲרֵי הַמֹּלֶךְ מִקֶּרֶב עַםָּם׃
6 I will set my face against the man who wantonly resorts to ghosts and spirits, and I will cut that person off from his people.  וְהַנֶּפֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר תִּפְנֶה אֶל־הָאֹבֹת וְאֶל־הַיִּדְּעֹנִים לִזְנֹות אַחֲרֵיהֶם וְנָתַתִּי אֶת־פָּנַי בַּנֶּפֶשׁ הַהִוא וְהִכְרַתִּי אֹתֹו מִקֶּרֶב עַמֹּו׃
7 Hallow yourselves and be holy, because I the LORD your God am holy.  וְהִתְקַדִּשְׁתֶּם וִהְיִיתֶם קְדֹשִׁים כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם׃
8 You shall keep my rules and obey them: I am the LORD who hallows you.

 וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אֶת־חֻקֹּתַי וַעֲשִׂיתֶם אֹתָם אֲנִי יְהוָה מְקַדִּשְׁכֶם׃
9 When any man reviles his father and his mother, he shall be put to death. He has reviled his father and his mother; his blood shall be on his own head.  כִּי־אִישׁ אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יְקַלֵּל אֶת־אָבִיו וְאֶת־אִמֹּו מֹות יוּמָת אָבִיו וְאִמֹּו קִלֵּל דָּמָיו בֹּו׃
10 If a man commits adultery with his neighbour's wife, both adulterer and adulteress shall be put to death.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִנְאַף אֶת־אֵשֶׁת אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִנְאַף אֶת־אֵשֶׁת רֵעֵהוּ מֹות־יוּמַת הַנֹּאֵף וְהַנֹּאָפֶת׃
11 The man who has intercourse with his father's wife has brought shame on his father. They shall both be put to death; their blood shall be on their own heads.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִשְׁכַּב אֶת־אֵשֶׁת אָבִיו עֶרְוַת אָבִיו גִּלָּה מֹות־יוּמְתוּ שְׁנֵיהֶם דְּמֵיהֶם בָּם׃
12 If a man has intercourse with his daughter-in-law, they shall both be put to death. Their deed is a violation of nature; their blood shall be on their own heads.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִשְׁכַּב אֶת־כַּלָּתֹו מֹות יוּמְתוּ שְׁנֵיהֶם תֶּבֶל עָשׂוּ דְּמֵיהֶם בָּם׃
13 If a man has intercourse with a man as with a woman, they both commit an abomination. They shall be put to death; their blood shall be on their own heads.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִשְׁכַּב אֶת־זָכָר מִשְׁכְּבֵי אִשָּׁה תֹּועֵבָה עָשׂוּ שְׁנֵיהֶם מֹות יוּמָתוּ דְּמֵיהֶם בָּם׃
14 If a man takes both a woman and her mother, that is lewdness. Both he and they shall be burnt; thus there shall be no lewdness in your midst.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִקַּח אֶת־אִשָּׁה וְאֶת־אִמָּהּ זִמָּה הִוא בָּאֵשׁ יִשְׂרְפוּ אֹתֹו וְאֶתְהֶן וְלֹא־תִהְיֶה זִמָּה בְּתֹוכְכֶם׃
15 A man who has sexual intercourse with any beast shall be put to death, and you shall kill the beast.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִתֵּן שְׁכָבְתֹּו בִּבְהֵמָה מֹות יוּמָת וְאֶת־הַבְּהֵמָה תַּהֲרֹגוּ׃
16 If a woman approaches any animal to have intercourse with it, you shall kill both woman and beast. They shall be put to death; their blood shall be on their own heads.  וְאִשָּׁה אֲשֶׁר תִּקְרַב אֶל־כָּל־בְּהֵמָה לְרִבְעָה אֹתָהּ וְהָרַגְתָּ אֶת־הָאִשָּׁה וְאֶת־הַבְּהֵמָה מֹות יוּמָתוּ דְּמֵיהֶם בָּם׃
17 If a man takes his sister, his father's daughter or his mother's daughter, and they see one another naked, it is a scandalous disgrace. They shall be cut off in the presence of their people. The man has had intercourse with his sister and he shall accept responsibility.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־יִקַּח אֶת־אֲחֹתֹו בַּת־אָבִיו אֹו בַת־אִמֹּו וְרָאָה אֶת־עֶרְוָתָהּ וְהִיא־תִרְאֶה אֶת־עֶרְוָתֹו חֶסֶד הוּא וְנִכְרְתוּ לְעֵינֵי בְּנֵי עַםָּם עֶרְוַת אֲחֹתֹו גִּלָּה עֲוֹנֹו יִשָּׂא׃
18 If a man lies with a woman during her monthly period and brings shame upon her, he has exposed her discharge and she has uncovered the source of her discharge; they shall both be cut off from their people.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר־יִשְׁכַּב אֶת־אִשָּׁה דָּוָה וְגִלָּה אֶת־עֶרְוָתָהּ אֶת־מְקֹרָהּ הֶעֱרָה וְהִיא גִּלְּתָה אֶת־מְקֹור דָּמֶיהָ וְנִכְרְתוּ שְׁנֵיהֶם מִקֶּרֶב עַםָּם׃
19 You shall not have intercourse with your mother's sister or your father's sister: it is the exposure of a blood-relation. They shall accept responsibility.  וְעֶרְוַת אֲחֹות אִמְּךָ וַאֲחֹות אָבִיךָ לֹא תְגַלֵּה כִּי אֶת־שְׁאֵרֹו הֶעֱרָה עֲוֹנָם יִשָּׂאוּ׃
20 A man who has intercourse with his uncle's wife has brought shame upon his uncle. They shall accept responsibility for their sin and shall be proscribed and put to death.  וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִשְׁכַּב אֶת־דֹּדָתֹו עֶרְוַת דֹּדֹו גִּלָּה חֶטְאָם יִשָּׂאוּ עֲרִירִים יָמֻתוּ׃
21 If a man takes his brother's wife, it is impurity. He has brought shame upon his brother; they shall be proscribed.

 וְאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִקַּח אֶת־אֵשֶׁת אָחִיו נִדָּה הִוא עֶרְוַת אָחִיו גִּלָּה עֲרִירִים יִהְיוּ׃
22 You shall keep all my rules and my laws and carry them out, that the land into which I am bringing you to live may not spew you out.  וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אֶת־כָּל־חֻקֹּתַי וְאֶת־כָּל־מִשְׁפָּטַי וַעֲשִׂיתֶם אֹתָם וְלֹא־תָקִיא אֶתְכֶם הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי מֵבִיא אֶתְכֶם שָׁמָּה לָשֶׁבֶת בָּהּ׃
23 You shall not conform to the institutions of the nations whom I am driving out before you: they did all these things and I abhorred them,  וְלֹא תֵלְכוּ בְּחֻקֹּת הַגֹּוי אֲשֶׁר־אֲנִי מְשַׁלֵּחַ מִפְּנֵיכֶם כִּי אֶת־כָּל־אֵלֶּה עָשׂוּ וָאָקֻץ בָּם׃
24 and I told you that you should occupy their land, and I would give you possession of it, a land flowing with milk and honey. I am the LORD your God: I have made a clear separation between you and the nations,  וָאֹמַר לָכֶם אַתֶּם תִּירְשׁוּ אֶת־אַדְמָתָם וַאֲנִי אֶתְּנֶנָּה לָכֶם לָרֶשֶׁת אֹתָהּ אֶרֶץ זָבַת חָלָב וּדְבָשׁ אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם אֲשֶׁר־הִבְדַּלְתִּי אֶתְכֶם מִן־הָעַמִּים׃
25 and you shall make a clear separation between clean beasts and unclean beasts and between unclean and clean birds. You shall not make yourselves vile through beast or bird or anything that creeps on the ground, for I have made a clear separation between them and you, declaring them unclean.  וְהִבְדַּלְתֶּם בֵּין־הַבְּהֵמָה הַטְּהֹרָה לַטְּמֵאָה וּבֵין־הָעֹוף הַטָּמֵא לַטָּהֹר וְלֹא־תְשַׁקְּצוּ אֶת־נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם בַּבְּהֵמָה וּבָעֹוף וּבְכֹל אֲשֶׁר תִּרְמֹשׂ הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר־הִבְדַּלְתִּי לָכֶם לְטַמֵּא׃
26 You shall be holy to me, because I the LORD am holy. I have made a clear separation between you and the heathen, that you may belong to me.  וִהְיִיתֶם לִי קְדֹשִׁים כִּי קָדֹושׁ אֲנִי יְהוָה וָאַבְדִּל אֶתְכֶם מִן־הָעַמִּים לִהְיֹות לִי׃
27 Any man or woman among you who calls up ghosts or spirits shall be put to death. The people shall stone them; their blood shall be on their own heads.  וְאִישׁ אֹו־אִשָּׁה כִּי־יִהְיֶה בָהֶם אֹוב אֹו יִדְּעֹנִי מֹות יוּמָתוּ בָּאֶבֶן יִרְגְּמוּ אֹתָם דְּמֵיהֶם בָּם׃ ף
