Leviticus 18:14-16 New English Translation (NET Bible)

14 You must not expose the nakedness of your father’s brother; you must not approach his wife to have marital relations with her.[a] She is your aunt.[b] 15 You must not have sexual relations with your daughter-in-law; she is your son’s wife. You must not have sexual relations with her. 16 You must not have sexual relations with your brother’s wife; she is your brother’s nakedness.[c]


  1. Leviticus 18:14 tn The expression קָרַב אֶל (qarav ʾel) means “draw near to” or “approach,” but is also used as a euphemism for the intended purpose of sexual relations.
  2. Leviticus 18:14 tn As in v. 12 (see the note there), some mss and versions have “because she is your aunt.”
  3. Leviticus 18:16 sn Regarding the last clause, see the notes on vv. 7 and 10 above.
