    King James Bible - Leviticus 18:23

    Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

    World English Bible

    "'You shall not lie with any animal to defile yourself with it; neither shall any woman give herself to an animal, to lie down with it: it is a perversion.

    Douay-Rheims - Leviticus 18:23

    Thou shalt not copulate with any beast, neither shalt thou be defiled with it. A woman shall not lie down to a beast, nor copulate with it: because it is a heinous crime.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

    Original Hebrew

    Le 20:15,16 Ex 22:19

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:23

    Ni con ningún animal tendrás ayuntamiento ensuciándote con él; ni mujer alguna se pondrá delante de animal para ayuntarse con él; es mezcla.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Leviticus 18:23

    Verse 23. With any
    beast] This abomination is also punishable with death by the laws of this country. Any woman stand before a beast] That this was often done in Egypt there can be no doubt; and we have already seen, from the testimony of Herodotus, that a fact of this kind actually took place while he was in Egypt. See the note on "chap. xvii. 7", and See on "Leviticus xx. 16".

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. Neither shall thou
    lie with any beast, to defile thyself therewith , etc.] A female one, as Aben Ezra notes, as a mare, cow, or ewe, or any other beast, small or great, as Ben Gersom, or whether tame or wild, as Maimonides f648 ; and even fowls are comprehended, as the same writers observe: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto : that is, stand before a beast, and by a lascivious and obscene behaviour solicit the beast to a congress with her, and then lie down after the manner of fourfooted beasts, as the word signifies, that it may have carnal copulation with her: for a man to lie with a beast is most shocking and detestable, but for a woman to solicit such an unnatural mixture is most horrible and astonishing: perhaps reference may be had to a most shocking practice among the Egyptians, from among whom the Israelites were lately come, and whose doings they were not to imitate, ( Leviticus 18:3); and which may account for this law, as Bishop Patrick observes: at Mendes, in Egypt, a goat was worshipped, as has been remarked ( Leviticus 18:7); and where the women used to lie with such creatures, as Strabo and Aelianus from Pindar have related; yea, Herodotus reports, of his own knowledge, that a goat had carnal copulation with a woman openly, in the view of all, in his time; and though that creature is a most lascivious and lustful one, yet, as Bochart from Plutarch has observed, when it is provoked by many and beautiful women, is not inclined and ready to come into their embraces, but shows some abhorrence of it: nature in brutes, as that learned man observes, is often more prevalent in them than in mankind: it [is] confusion ; a mixing of the seed of man and beast together, a blending of different kinds of creatures, a perverting the order of nature, and introducing the utmost confusion of beings, from whence monsters in nature may arise.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
