thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou [it
]: he went up to my couch
The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it [is
] thy father's nakedness.

] the firstborn; but, forasmuch
as he defiled his father's bed, his birthright

their fathers' nakedness: in thee have they humbled
her that was set apart for pollution.

aside the way of the meek: and a
man and his father will go in unto the [same
, to profane my holy name:

such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one
should have his father's wife.
