    Le 20:20

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:14

    La desnudez del hermano de tu padre no descubrirŠs; no llegarŠs a su mujer; es mujer del hermano de tu padre.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. Thou shalt not uncover the
    nakedness of thy fatherís brother , etc.] Which Gersom understands of committing sodomy with him, on which account he was doubly guilty, partly because of lying with a male, and partly because of uncovering the nakedness of his fatherís brother; but it rather seems at first sight as if the sense was, that a woman should not marry her fatherís brother, that is, her uncle, as a man might not marry his aunt, whether by father or motherís side, as in ( Leviticus 18:12,13); but Jarchi directs to a better sense than either, when he asks, what is his nakedness? in answer to which he recites the following clause as explanative of it: thou shall not approach to his wife ; in the use of the bed, as the Targum of Jonathan adds, that is, to lie with her, her husband being living, or to marry her, he being dead: she [is] thine aunt : even as a fatherís or motherís sister, only they are aunts by blood, this by marriage or affinity: in the Targums of Onkelos and Jonathan it is, she is the wife of thy fatherís brother; and as Aben Ezra, she is accounted as thine aunt, and so marriage with her prohibited; and the same holds good of a fatherís brotherís wife, which being not mentioned, the same writer says, we have need of the tradition which expresses that and also of a fatherís sisterís husband; for if marriage with a fatherís brotherís wife is unlawful, then marriage with a fatherís sisterís husband must be so too; for a fatherís sisterís husband stands in the same degree or line of affinity as a fatherís brotherís wife; and it is a sure rule, that in whatsoever degree or line of affinity males are forbid to marry females, in the same females are forbid to marry males.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Unlawful marriages and fleshly lusts.

    --Here is a law against all conformity to the corrupt usages of the heathen. Also laws against incest, against brutal lusts, and barbarou idolatries; and the enforcement of these laws from the ruin of the Canaanites. God here gives moral precepts. Close and constant adherenc to God's ordinances is the most effectual preservative from gross sin The grace of God only will secure us; that grace is to be expected onl in the use of the means of grace. Nor does He ever leave any to their hearts' lusts, till they have left him and his services __________________________________________________________________
