Lev 20:17 “If a man takes his sister, a daughter of his father or a daughter of his mother, and sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness, it is a disgrace, and they will be eliminated in the sight of the children of their people. He has uncovered his sister’s nakedness, and he will be responsible for his violation.
Lev 20:18 If a man lies with a woman during her menstrual period and uncovers her nakedness, he has made naked her fountain, and she has uncovered the fountain of her blood. Both of them will be eliminated from among their people.
Lev 20:19 You will not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister or of your father’s sister, because that is to make naked one’s relative; they will be responsible for their violation.
Lev 20:20 If a man lies with his uncle’s wife, he has uncovered his uncle’s nakedness; they will be responsible for their mistake; they will die destitute.
Lev 20:21 If a man takes his brother’s wife, it is impurity. He has uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they will be destitute.
The saying goes “Look but don’t touch,” but the LORD told the Israelites that there were some things they should not look at. Just looking at a woman you are not married to is a violation. The mind builds kingdoms of fantasy launched by a look. The LORD commanded his people to discipline their eyes, because the eyes are the horse that pulls the cart. What the eyes see, the body lusts after.
LORD, rescue us from the things we should not see.
