Bible: Leviticus 18:24-30

Warning against the Abominations of the Nations

18:24‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things, for the nations which I am about to drive out before you 1  have been defiled with all these things. 18:25 Therefore 2  the land has become unclean and I have brought the punishment for its iniquity upon it, 3  so that the land has vomited out its inhabitants. 18:26 You yourselves must obey 4  my statutes and my regulations and must not do any of these abominations, both the native citizen and the resident foreigner in your midst, 5  18:27 for the people who were in the land before you have done all these abominations, 6  and the land has become unclean. 18:28 So do not make the land vomit you out because you defile it 7  just as it has vomited out the nations 8  that were before you. 18:29 For if anyone does any of these abominations, the persons who do them will be cut off from the midst of their people. 9  18:30 You must obey my charge to not practice any of the abominable statutes 10  that have been done before you, so that you do not 11  defile yourselves by them. I am the Lord your God.’
