Leviticus 18:1-30

1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: 2 Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them,—I—Yahweh, am your God:— 3 After the doings of the land of Egypt wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do,—And after the doings of the land of Canaan whither, I, am bringing you in, shall ye not do, And, in their statutes, shall ye not walk: 4 My regulations, shall ye do, And, my statutes, shall ye observe to walk therein,—I—Yahweh, am your God. 5 Therefore shall ye observe my statutes, and my regulations, Which if the son of earth shall do them, Then shall he live in them,—I, am Yahweh. 6 No person whatsoever, unto any of the near kin of his own flesh, shall approach to uncover the parts of shame,—I, am Yahweh. 7 The shame of thy father, even the shame of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover,—thy mother, she is, thou shalt not uncover her shame. 8 The shame of thy father’s wife, shalt thou not uncover,—thy father’s shame, it is. 9 The shame of thy sister daughter of thy father or daughter of thy mother, born at home or horn abroad, thou shalt not uncover their shame. 10 The shame of the daughter of thy son or the daughter of thy daughter, thou shalt not uncover their shame,—for, thine own shame, they are. 11 The shame of the daughter of thy father’s wife, born to thy father, she being, thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her shame. 12 The shame of thy father’s sister, shalt thou not uncover,—thy father’s near of kin, she is. 13 The shame of thy mother’s sister, shalt thou not uncover,—for, thy mother’s near of kin, she is. 14 The shame of thy father’s brother, shalt thou not uncover unto his wife, shalt thou not approach, thine aunt, she is. 15 The shame of thy daughter-in-law, shalt thou not uncover,—thy son’s wife, she is, thou shalt not uncover her shame. 16 The shame of thy brother’s wife, shalt thou not uncover,—the shame of thy brother, it is. 17 The shame of a woman, and of her daughter, shalt thou not uncover,—neither the daughter of her son nor the laughter of her daughter, shalt thou take, to uncover her shame, near of kin, they are, wickedness, it is. 18 And, a woman unto her sister, shalt thou not take,—to cause rivalry, by uncovering her shame besides her own while she is living. 19 And unto a woman during her removal for uncleanness, shalt thou not approach, to uncover her shame. 20 And of the wife of thy neighbour, shalt thou not have carnal knowledge,—to commit uncleanness with her. 21 And none of thy seed, shalt thou deliver up, to cause to pass through to Molech,—that thou profane not the name of thy God, I, am Yahweh. 22 And, with mankind, shalt thou not lie as with womankind,—an abomination, it is. 23 And of no beast, shalt thou have carnal knowledge to commit uncleanness therewith,—neither shall a woman present herself to a beast to couch down thereto,—confusion, it is. 24 Do not make yourselves unclean in any of these things,—For in all these things, have the nations made themselves unclean, whom, I, am sending out from before you. 25 Therefore hath the land become unclean, and I have visited the iniquity thereof upon it,—and the land hath vomited her inhabitants. 26 Ye, therefore, shall observe my statutes and my regulations, and have nothing to do with any of these abominations,—whether the home-born, or the sojourner that sojourneth in your midst; 27 For all these abominations, have the men of the land done, who were before you; And so the land hath become unclean: 28 So shall the land not vomit you, through your making it unclean,—as it vomited the nation which was before you. 29 For whosoever shall have anything to do with any of these abominations, the persons who have, shall be cut off, out of the midst of their people. 30 Therefore shall ye keep my charge, So that ye may have nothing to do with any of the abominable statutes with which they have had to do before you, So shall ye not make yourselves unclean thereby,—I—Yahweh, am your God.

Romans 1:26-27

26 For this cause, God gave them up unto dishonourable passions; for, even their females, exchanged away the natural use into that which is against nature,— 27 In like manner also, even the males, leaving the natural use of the female, flamed out in their eager desire one for another, males with males, the indecency, effecting,—and, the necessary recompence of their error, within themselves, duly receiving;—

Romans 1:18-32

18 For there is being revealed an anger of God from heaven—against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who, the truth, in unrighteousness, do hold down;— 19 Inasmuch as, what may be known of God, is manifest among them, for, God, unto them, hath made it manifest,— 20 For, the unseen things of him, from a world’s creation, by the things made, being perceived, are clearly seen, even his eternal power and divinity,—to the end they should be without excuse; 21 Inasmuch as, having come to know God, not, as God, did they glorify him, or give him thanks, but were made fruitless in their reasonings, and darkened was their undiscerning heart, 22 Professing to be wise, they were made foolish, 23 And, exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God, for the likeness of an image of a corruptible man, and of birds and fourfooted beasts and reptiles: 24 Wherefore God gave them up in the covetings of their hearts unto impurity, so as to be dishonouring their bodies among them,— 25 Who, indeed, exchanged away the truth of God for the falsehood, and rendered worship and service unto the creature rather than unto the Creator,—who is blessed unto the ages. Amen! 26 For this cause, God gave them up unto dishonourable passions; for, even their females, exchanged away the natural use into that which is against nature,— 27 In like manner also, even the males, leaving the natural use of the female, flamed out in their eager desire one for another, males with males, the indecency, effecting,—and, the necessary recompence of their error, within themselves, duly receiving;— 28 And, even as they did not approve to be holding, God, in acknowledgment, God gave them up unto a disapproved mind to be doing the things that are not becoming, 29 Filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, baseness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil disposition, 30 Whisperers, detractors, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, vain boasters, inventors of vices, unto parents unyielding, 31 Without discernment, regardless of covenants, without natural affection, unmerciful:— 32 Who, indeed, having acknowledged the righteous sentence of God,—that, they who such things as these do practise, are worthy of death, not only, the same things, are doing, but are even delighting together with them who are practising [them] .

1 Corinthians 6:9

9 Or know ye not that, wrong-doers, shall not inherit, God’s kingdom? Be not deceiving yourselves:—neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites,

Romans 13:10-14

10 Love, unto ones neighbour, worketh not ill; Law’s fullness, therefore, is, love. 11 And, this besides,—knowing the season—that it is an hour already for you out of sleep to be wakened; for, now, is our salvation nearer than when we believed: 12 The night, is far spent and, the day, hath drawn near; let us, then, cast off the works of darkness, [and] let us put on the armour of light,— 13 As in daytime, becomingly let us walk: not in revellings and in drunken bouts, not in chamberings and in wanton deeds, not in strife and envy;— 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and, for the flesh, take not forethought to fulfil its covetings.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Or know ye not that, wrong-doers, shall not inherit, God’s kingdom? Be not deceiving yourselves:—neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners—shall inherit, God’s kingdom. 11 And, these things, were some of you; but ye bathed them away,—but ye were sanctified, but ye were justified, in the name of [our] Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.

Acts 16:1-40

1 And he came even unto Derbe, and unto Lystra; and lo! a certain disciple, was there, by name Timothy, son of a believing Jewish woman, but whose father was a Greek,— 2 who was well-attested by the brethren in Lystra, and Iconium. 3 The same, would Paul have go forth with him, and took and circumcised him, on account of the Jews who were in those places; for they one and all knew that, his father, was, a Greek. 4 And, as they passed through the cities, they were delivering unto them, for observance, the decrees which had been decided upon by the Apostles and Elders who were in Jerusalem. 5 The assemblies, therefore, were being confirmed in the faith, and increasing in number, every day. 6 And they passed through the Phrygian and Galatian country, being forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia; 7 but, coming along Mysia, they were attempting to journey into Bithynia,—and, the Spirit of Jesus, suffered them not; 8 but, passing by Mysia, they came down unto Troas. 9 And, a vision, by night, unto Paul appeared:—A man of Macedonia, there was, standing and beseeching him, and saying—Come over into Macedonia, and bring us succour! 10 Now, when, the vision, he had seen, straightway, we sought to go forth unto Macedonia, concluding that God, had summoned us to tell the glad tidings unto them. 11 Setting sail, therefore, from Troas, we ran straight into Samothracia, and, on the morrow, unto New City, 12 and, from thence, unto Philippi,—which, indeed, is the first city of the part of Macedonia—a colony. And we were, in this city, spending certain days; 13 and on the day of rest, we went forth outside the gate, beside a river, where we supposed there was a place of prayer,—and, sitting down, we went on to speak unto the women who had come together. 14 And, a certain woman, by name Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, devout towards God, was hearkening, whose heart, the Lord, fully opened, to be giving heed unto the things being spoken by Paul. 15 And, when she was immersed, and her house, she besought [us], saying—If ye have judged me to be a believer in the Lord, come into my house, and abide [there] . And she constrained us. 16 And it came to pass, as we were on our way unto the place of prayer, a certain damsel, having a spirit of Python, met us,—who, indeed, much gain, was presenting unto her masters, by divining. 17 The same, following after Paul and us, kept crying aloud, saying—These men, are servants of the Most High God,—who, indeed, are declaring unto you a way of salvation. 18 And, this, she continued to do for many days. But Paul, worn out, and turning unto the spirit, said—I charge thee, in the name of Jesus Christ, to come out from her. And it came out the same hour. 19 And, her masters, seeing that their hope of gain had gone out, laying hold on Paul and Silas, dragged them into the market-place, unto the rulers; 20 and, leading them forward unto the magistrates, said—These men, are exceedingly troubling our city, they, being Jews, 21 And are declaring customs, which it is not allowable for us either to accept or to observe, being Romans. 22 And the multitude rose up together against them, and, the magistrates, rending off them their mantles, were giving orders to beat them with rods; 23 and, laying upon them many stripes, they thrust them into prison, charging the prison-keeper, safely, to be keeping them: 24 who, a charge like this receiving, thrust them into the inner prison, and, their feet, made he fast in the stocks. 25 And, at midnight, Paul and Silas, being at prayer, began singing praise unto God; and the prisoners unto them, did hearken. 26 And, suddenly, a great earthquake took place,—so that the foundations of the prison were shaken, and all the doors were [instantly] set open, and the bonds of all were unfastened. 27 And, the prison-keeper, being wakened and seeing that the doors of the prison had been opened, drawing his sword, was about to kill himself, supposing the prisoners to have fled. 28 But Paul called out with a loud voice, saying—By no means, do thyself harm, for we are, one and all, here. 29 And, asking for a light, he sprang in, and becoming, agitated, fell down unto Paul and Silas, 30 and, leading them forth outside, said—Sirs! what must I be doing, that I may be saved? 31 And, they, said—Believe on the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be saved, thou, and thy house. 32 And they spake unto him the word of God, with all who were in his house. 33 And, taking them with him, in that hour of the night, he bathed them from their stripes, and was immersed, he, and his, one and all, on the spot; 34 and, leading them up into his house, he set near a table,—and exulted, having, with all his house, believed in God. 35 And. when day came. the magistrates sent off the constables saying—Let those men go! 36 And the prison-keeper reported the words unto Paul—The magistrates have sent, that ye be let go. Now, therefore, going forth, be taking your journey in peace. 37 But, Paul, said unto them—Beating us, in public, uncondemned, men that are Romans, they thrust us into prison;—and, now, by stealth, are they thrusting us forth? Nay, verily! but let them come, themselves, and lead us out! 38 And the constables reported unto the magistrates these words; and they were struck with fear, when they heard that they were, Romans; 39 and came, and besought them, and, leading them out, went on to request them to depart from the city. 40 And so, coming forth from the prison, they went unto Lydia, and, seeing the brethren, they comforted them, and went forth.
