Daily Chumash Shabbos-Acharei Mos: The forbidden relations/Arayos


  • Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman. It is an abomination.
  • A man may not lie with an animal.
  • A woman may not lie with an animal.


  1. A warning to keep the land pure and not be expelled:
  • Do not impurify your souls with all the above, as the gentiles who I am expelling became impure with them. They defiled the land and it vomited its inhabitants. You, however, shall guard yourselves from all of this, and not perform any of these abominations. Don’t cause the land to vomit you out due to your defilement as it did to the nations before you.
  • Punishment of excision: Anyone who performs any of the above abominations shall be cut off from the Jewish people.
