“‘ You shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is impure by her uncleanness.
But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lust and enticed.Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin. The sin, when it is full grown, produces death.
“ Speak to the children of Israel, saying,‘ If a woman conceives, and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of her monthly period she shall be unclean.In the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.She shall continue in the blood of purification thirty- three days. She shall not touch any holy thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying are completed.But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her period; and she shall continue in the blood of purification sixty- six days.
Have mercy on me, God, according to your loving kindness. According to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity. Cleanse me from my sin.For I know my transgressions. My sin is constantly before me.Against you, and you only, I have sinned, and done that which is evil in your sight, so you may be proved right when you speak, and justified when you judge.Behold, I was born in iniquity. My mother conceived me in sin.Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts. You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.Let me hear joy and gladness, that the bones which you have broken may rejoice.Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all of my iniquities.Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me.Don’t throw me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.Restore to me the joy of your salvation. Uphold me with a willing spirit.Then I will teach transgressors your ways. Sinners will be converted to you.Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, the God of my salvation. My tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.Lord, open my lips. My mouth will declare your praise.For you don’t delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it. You have no pleasure in burnt offering.The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. O God, you will not despise a broken and contrite heart.Do well in your good pleasure to Zion. Build the walls of Jerusalem.Then you will delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt offerings and in whole burnt offerings. Then they will offer bulls on your altar.
After these things, his master’s wife set her eyes on Joseph; and she said,“ Lie with me.”
“ So is the way of an adulterous woman: She eats and wipes her mouth, and says,‘ I have done nothing wrong.’
“ If my heart has been enticed to a woman, and I have laid wait at my neighbor’s door,then let my wife grind for another, and let others sleep with her.For that would be a heinous crime. Yes, it would be an iniquity to be punished by the judges;
“‘ If a woman has a discharge, and her discharge in her flesh is blood, she shall be in her impurity seven days. Whoever touches her shall be unclean until the evening.“‘ Everything that she lies on in her impurity shall be unclean. Everything also that she sits on shall be unclean.Whoever touches her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.Whoever touches anything that she sits on shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.If it is on the bed, or on anything she sits on, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until the evening.“‘ If any man lies with her, and her monthly flow is on him, he shall be unclean seven days; and every bed he lies on shall be unclean.“‘ If a woman has a discharge of her blood many days not in the time of her period, or if she has a discharge beyond the time of her period, all the days of the discharge of her uncleanness shall be as in the days of her period. She is unclean.Every bed she lies on all the days of her discharge shall be to her as the bed of her period. Everything she sits on shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her period.Whoever touches these things shall be unclean, and shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.“‘ But if she is cleansed of her discharge, then she shall count to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean.On the eighth day she shall take two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, and bring them to the priest, to the door of the Tent of Meeting.The priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make atonement for her before Yahweh for the uncleanness of her discharge.“‘ Thus you shall separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, so they will not die in their uncleanness when they defile my tabernacle that is among them.’”This is the law of him who has a discharge, and of him who has an emission of semen, so that he is unclean by it;and of her who has her period, and of a man or woman who has a discharge, and of him who lies with her who is unclean.
When you saw a thief, you consented with him, and have participated with adulterers.
