SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:8 La desnudez de la mujer de tu padre no descubrirŠs; es la desnudez de tu padre.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. The nakedness of thy fatherís wife shalt thou not uncover , etc.] That is, who is indeed a manís fatherís wife, but not his own mother, but a stepmother or mother-in-law; or otherwise this law would coincide with the former; a man lying with such an one is accursed by the law, ( Deuteronomy 27:23); such an incestuous copulation was that of Reuben with Bilhah, and Absalom with his fatherís concubines or secondary wives, and such an incestuous marriage was that of the Corinthians, ( 1 Corinthians 5:1); and of Antiochus Soter, king of Syria, with Stratonice his mother-in-law f625 : and even it was criminal to do this after a fatherís death, as Jarchi interprets it; and though she was only betrothed, and not married, and the father dead after such betrothing; as Gersom; nay, though she was divorced by the father, yet was not lawful for the son to have, no, not after his death: it is thy fatherís nakedness ; being espoused to him, and so one flesh with him; and the son and father being one flesh, such a mixture must be unlawful; and since then the nakedness of a mother-in-law is the fatherís, then surely that of an own motherís must be so likewise, which confirms a sense given of it in ( Leviticus 18:7): Cicero exclaims against such marriages as incredible and unheard of, as instances of unbridled lust and singular impudence.
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 __________________________________________________________________
