Leviticus 16 Star Chart: Clockwise from when (Hercules) Aaron, the high priest, "shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins" (16:16) "until he come out (Ophiuchus walking), and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel" (16:17) is 360° or 30 minutes at 12° per minute. "And he shall go out unto the (solar) altar that is before the (Shekinah) Lord, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) goat, and put it upon the (lunar) horns of the (red radius) altar round about" (16:18) is (2 x 360°) 12 seconds. "And he shall sprinkle of the (red radius) blood upon it with his (Scorpio) finger seven times (7 x 360°), and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel" (16:19) is 7 seconds. (Then he will return out of the Tabernacle -- from heaven) "And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live (Taurus) goat" (16:20) is 150° seconds. "And (Hercules) Aaron shall lay both his (lunar) (red radius) hands upon the head of the live (Taurus) goat, and (red radius) confess over him all the iniquities of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the (Taurus) goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit (Perseus) man into the wilderness" (16:21) is 360°or 30 minutes more .

The slain goat represented the crucified Jesus. The High Priest now represents Christ who takes his own blood to the very throne of God in heaven. Christ bore guilt that was not his, while the Devil got off free. Full justice requires placing the blame and guilt back where it belongs. Therefore the Azazel goat must bear the guilt. "The whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin" (Book of Enoch 10:8).

In actual practice, this goat was thrown off a cliff so it wouldn't wander back to camp (Yoma 67b; Sifra, Aare, ii. 2; Targ. Yer. Lev. xiv. 10). Aaron and the "fit man" both wash and cleanse themselves after coming into contact with the Azazel goat. This implies the Devil. Notice that the act of putting the sins on the live goat doesn't occur till the SECOND COMING or RETURN of the High Priest from the Holy of Holies within the veil after 2000 years of reconciliation. So this is after Christ's SECOND COMING to this earth. See Rev. 20:1-3. Satan is Azazel. The "bottomless pit" is the uninhabited desolate wilderness (Rev. 20:1-3). The fit man is "an angel" from heaven (20:1).

Leviticus 17 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "I said unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, Ye shall eat the (red radius) blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the (red radius) blood thereof" (17:14) till "whosoever eateth it shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off" (17:14) or disfellowshipped is 300° (or perhaps 5 hours). "And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that which was torn with beasts (or roadkill), whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger, he shall both (Eridanus) wash his (lunar white) clothes, and (Milky Way) bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the (sun on red radius horizon) even: then shall he be clean" (17:15) is either 210° for Perseus and Cepheus (4 a.m.)(14 hours till sunset at 6 p.m.), or 150° for Castor and Pollux (8 a.m.)(10 hours till sunset at 6 p.m.).

Leviticus 18 Star Chart: Clockwise from when God warned (Gemini) Israel, "Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own (Castor) nation, nor any (Pollux) stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)" (18:26-27) till "the land (Cetus) (red radius) spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you" (18:28) is 660° years, from Gemini (1405 B.C.) one full lap around and then to Cetus puking and Perseus cutting off (745 B.C.). From 1405 B.C. when they entered Canaan till Reuben, Gad and half-Manasseh (1 Chr. 5:26) were taken captive in 745 B.C. is 660 years. "For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off from among their (Gemini) people" (18:29). How many of these abominations are being committed in America every day?

In 745 B.C., Tiglath-Pileser (called "Pul" in the Bible -- 2 Kings 15:19; 1 Chr.5:26), the king of ASSYRIA, began the first invasion against Israel in the reign of Menahem (2 Ki.15:19-20). As Putnam's Dictionary Of Events, copyright 1927, page 6, states, "745, Accession of Tiglath-pileser III of Assyria, who wages war against Chaldea, Syria, and the kingdom of Israel." Langer says, "Tiglath-Pileser III of ASSYRIA (745-727) forced Menahem (744) and Pekahiah (738) to pay tribute" (p.31, An Encyclopedia Of World History).

"But in the fourth year all the (solar & lunar) fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the (Shekinah) Lord withal" (19:24) is another 360°.

The Azazel Goat is Satan, the Fit Man is an Angel & the Uninhabited Wilderness is a Bottomless Pit (Rev. 20)

16:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses after the death of the two (Gemini) sons of (Hercules) Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

2 And the (Shekinah) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Speak unto (Hercules) Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.

3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young (Taurus) bullock for a sin offering, and a (Aries) ram for a burnt offering.

4 He shall put on the holy linen (lunar) coat, and he shall have the (lunar white) linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the (lunar) linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

5 And he shall take of the congregation of the (Gemini) children of Israel two (lunar) kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one (Aries) ram for a burnt offering.

6 And Aaron shall offer his (Taurus) bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.

7 And he shall take the two (lunar) goats, and present them before the (Shekinah) Lord at the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

8 And (Hercules) Aaron shall cast (lunar) lots upon the two (lunar) (Taurus) goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot (in contrast) for the scapegoat (Azazel -- Devil).

9 And (Hercules) Aaron shall bring the (lunar) (Taurus) goat upon which the Lord's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

10 But the (lunar) (Taurus) goat, on which the (lunar) lot fell to be the (Taurus) scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a (Taurus) scapegoat into the wilderness.

11 And (Hercules) Aaron shall bring the (Taurus) bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall (Perseus) (red radius) kill the (Taurus) bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:

12 And he shall take a (solar) censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the (Shekinah) Lord, and his hands full of sweet (red radius stick) incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:

13 And he shall put the (red radius stick) incense upon the (solar) fire before the (Shekinah) Lord, that the (Milky Way) cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:

14 And he shall take of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and sprinkle it with his (Scorpio) finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the (red radius) blood with his (Scorpio) finger seven times (7 x 360°).

15 Then shall he (Perseus) (red radius) kill the (Taurus) goat of the sin offering, that is for the (Gemini) people, and bring his (red radius) blood within the vail, and do with that (red radius) blood as he did with the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and sprinkle it upon the (solar golden) mercy seat, and before the (solar golden) mercy seat:

16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.

The slain goat represented the crucified Jesus. The High Priest now represents Christ who takes his own blood to the very throne of God in heaven. The Azazel goat doesn't picture any of this.

17 And there shall be no man in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

18 And he shall go out unto the (solar) altar that is before the (Shekinah) Lord, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) goat, and put it upon the (lunar) horns of the (red radius) altar round about.

19 And he shall sprinkle of the (red radius) blood upon it with his (Scorpio) finger seven times (7 x 360°), and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel..

20 And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live (Taurus) goat:

21 And (Hercules) Aaron shall lay both his (lunar) hands upon the head of the live (Taurus) goat, and (red radius) confess over him all the iniquities of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the (Taurus) goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit (Perseus) man into the wilderness:

Christ bore guilt that was not his, while the Devil got off free. Full justice requires placing the blame and guilt back where it belongs. Is it justice for Christ to bear the Devil's guilt? Aaron and the "fit man" both had to wash and cleanse himself after coming into contact with the Azazel goat. This implies the Devil. Notice that the act of putting the sins on the live goat doesn't occur till the SECOND COMING or RETURN of the High Priest from the Holy of Holies within the veil. So this is after Christ's SECOND COMING to this earth. See Rev. 20:3. The "bottomless pit" is the uninhabited desolate wilderness (Rev. 20:1-3). The fit man is "an angel" from heaven (20:1).

22 And the (Taurus) goat shall bear upon him (Fenton: shall carry upon itself) all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the (Taurus) goat in the wilderness.

23 And (Hercules) Aaron shall come into the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:

24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his (solar) burnt offering, and the (solar) burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the (Gemini) people.

25 And the (lunar) fat of the sin offering shall he (solar) burn upon the altar.

26 And he that let go the (Taurus) goat for the scapegoat (Azazel) shall wash his (lunar) clothes, and bathe his (lunar) flesh in water, and afterward (Ophiuchus) come into the camp.

27 And the (Taurus) bullock for the sin offering, and the (Taurus) goat for the sin offering, whose (red radius) blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall (solar) burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.

28 And he that (solar) burneth them shall wash his (lunar) clothes, and bathe his (lunar) flesh in water, and afterward he shall (Ophiuchus) come into the camp.

29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls (fast), and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:

30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the Lord.

31 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls (fast), by a statute for ever.

32 And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the (lunar) linen clothes, even the holy garments:

33 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the (Gemini) priests, and for all the (Gemini) people of the congregation.

34 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the (Gemini) children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

Don't Eat Blood

17:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto (Hercules) Aaron, and unto his (Gemini) sons, and unto all the (Perseus, Cepheus) children of Israel, and say unto them; This is the thing which the (Shekinah) Lord hath (red radius) commanded, saying,

3 What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that (Perseus) (red radius) killeth an (Taurus) ox, or (Aries) lamb, or (Taurus) goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp,

4 And bringeth it not unto the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an (solar) offering unto the (Shekinah) Lord before the (red radius) tabernacle of the (Shekinah) Lord; (red radius) blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed (red radius) blood; and that man shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off from among his (Gemini) people:

5 To the end that the (Gemini) children of Israel may bring their (lunar or solar) sacrifices, which they offer in the (red radius) open field, even that they may bring them unto the (Shekinah) Lord, unto the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest, and offer them for peace offerings unto the (Shekinah) Lord.

6 And the priest shall (red radius) sprinkle the (red radius) blood upon the (solar) altar of the (Shekinah) Lord at the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and (solar) burn the (lunar white) fat for a (red radius) sweet savour unto the (Shekinah) Lord.

7 And they shall no more offer their (solar or lunar) sacrifices unto (Cetus, Big Dog, Scorpio) devils (demons), after whom they have gone a (red radius) whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations.

8 And thou shalt (red radius) say unto them, Whatsoever man there be of the (Gemini) house of Israel, or of the (Cepheus, Perseus) strangers which sojourn among you, that offereth a (solar) burnt offering or sacrifice,

9 And (Ophiuchus) bringeth it not unto the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to (Castor) offer it unto the (Shekinah) Lord; even that man shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off from among his (Gemini) people.

10 And whatsoever man there be of the (Gemini) house of Israel, or of the (Cepheus, Perseus) strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of (red radius) blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth (red radius) blood, and will (Perseus) (red radius) cut him off from among his (Gemini) people.

11 For the life of the flesh is in the (red radius) blood: and I have given it to you upon the (solar) altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the (red radius) blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

12 Therefore I said unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat (red radius) blood, neither shall any (Ophiuchus, Hercules, Drago, Cetus, Big Dog) stranger that sojourneth among you eat (red radius) blood.

13 And whatsoever man there be of the (Gemini) children of Israel, or of the (Cepheus, Perseus) strangers that sojourn among you, which (red radius) hunteth and catcheth any (Taurus, Aries) beast or (Cygnus) fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the (red radius) blood thereof, and cover it with (lunar or solar) dust.

678456

14 For it is the life of all flesh; the (red radius) blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, Ye shall eat the (red radius) blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the (red radius) blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off.

15 And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that which was torn with beasts (or roadkill), whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger, he shall both (Eridanus) wash his (lunar white) clothes, and (Milky Way) bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the (sun on red radius horizon) even: then shall he be clean.

16 But if he (Eridanus) wash them not, nor (Milky Way) bathe his flesh; then he shall bear his iniquity.

No Incest, Adultery, Bestiality, Sodomy, Abortion
or Sex With A Menstruant

18:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, and (red radius) say unto them, I am the Lord your God.

3 After the doings of the land of Egypt (Cetus), wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan (Big Dog), whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.

Diodorus Siculus relates (Bibliothec. l. 1. p. 23.), that it passed into a law with the Egyptians, contrary to the common custom of all others, that men might marry their own sisters; which is one of the incestuous marriages taken notice of in this chapter, and forbid:

Incestuous marriages, which prevailed among that people, and which they might have received from their ancestor Canaan, who learned them from his father Ham, of whom Berosus (Antiqu. l. 3. fol. 25.) writes, that even before the flood he corrupted mankind; asserting and putting it in practice, that men might lie with their mothers, sisters, daughters, and with males and brutes, or any other, for which he was cast out by Noah:

4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to (Ophiuchus) walk therein: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord.

6 None of you shall (red radius) approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord.

7 The nakedness of thy (Castor) father, or the nakedness of thy (Pollux) mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

8 The nakedness of thy father's (Pollux) wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness.

9 The nakedness of thy (Pollux) sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.

There was both a moral and genetic reason for these commands. “Surveys in different parts of the world where inbreeding occurs have shown that it is accompanied by an increase in congenital malformations and perinatal mortality, for which recessive genes and environmental factors respectively would be responsible.” (Harrison)

Also, “In those instances where the parents are siblings, or where the relationship is one between parent and child, the resultant offspring incur approximately at 30% risk of retardation or some other serious defect.” (Harrison)

10 The nakedness of thy son's (Pollux) daughter, or of thy daughter's (Castor) daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness.

11 The nakedness of thy father's wife's (Pollux) daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

12 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's (Pollux) sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman.

13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's (Castor) sister: for she is thy mother's near kinswoman.

14 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his (Pollux) wife: she is thine aunt.

15 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy (Pollux) daughter in law: she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's (Pollux) wife: it is thy brother's nakedness.

17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a (Pollux) woman and her (Castor) daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's (Pollux) daughter, or her daughter's (Castor) daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.

18 Neither shalt thou take a (Pollux) wife to her (Castor) sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.

19 Also thou shalt not approach unto a (Pollux) woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.

20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's (Pollux) wife, to defile thyself with her.

21 And thou shalt not let any of thy (Castor or Pollux) seed pass through the (solar) fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.

Abortion is here condemned, as well as idolatry.

22 Thou shalt not lie with (Castor) mankind, as with (Pollux) womankind: it is abomination.

43% of homosexuals say that they have had 500 or more sexual partners in their lifetime. Only 1% of homosexuals say they have had four or less sexual partners in their lifetime. Furthermore, homosexuals seem to specialize in anonymous sex with no emotional commitment. At one time, London AIDS clinics defined a woman as promiscuous if she’d had more than six partners in her lifetime. They gave up trying to apply a workable definition to male homosexuals when it became clear that they saw almost no homosexual men who had less than six sexual partners a year.

23 Neither shalt thou lie with any (Aries, Taurus) beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any (Pollux) woman stand before a (Big Dog) beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

at Mendes, in Egypt, a goat was worshipped, where the women used to lie with such creatures, as Strabo ( Geograph. l. 17. p. 551.) and Aelianus (De Animal. l. 7. c. 19.) from Pindar have related; yea, Herodotus (Euterpe, sive, l. 2. c. 46.) reports, of his own knowledge, that a goat had carnal copulation with a woman openly, in the view of all, in his time; and though that creature is a most lascivious and lustful one, yet, as Bochart (Hierozoic. par. 1. l. 2. c. 53. col. 642.) from Plutarch has observed, when it is provoked by many and beautiful women, is not inclined and ready to come into their embraces, but shows some abhorrence of it: nature in brutes, as that learned man observes, is often more prevalent in them than in mankind: it is confusion; a mixing of the seed of man and beast together, a blending of different kinds of creatures, a perverting the order of nature, and introducing the utmost confusion of beings, from whence monsters in nature may arise.

24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself (Cetus, Big Dog, Drago, Ophiuchus) (red radius) vomiteth out her inhabitants.

26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own (Castor) nation, nor any (Pollux) stranger that sojourneth among you:

27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)

28 That the land (Cetus, Big Dog, Drago, Ophiuchus) (red radius) spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.

29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off from among their (Gemini) people.

30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God.

Incest And Inbreeding Forbidden

The relationships prohibited by the Bible are FATHER-DAUGHTER and MOTHER-SON (Lev.18:7-8; 20:11; Deut.27:20), SISTER-BROTHER (Lev.18:9,11; 20:17; Deut.27:22), AUNT-NEPHEW and UNCLE-NIECE (Lev.18:12-14; 20:19-20), GRANDAUGHTER-GRANDFATHER and GRANDSON-GRANDMOTHER (Lev.18:10), DAUGHTER-IN-LAW -- FATHER-IN-LAW and SON-IN-LAW--MOTHER-IN-LAW (Lev.18:15; 20:12; Deut.27:23), and also SISTER-IN-LAW--BROTHER-IN-LAW (Lev.18:16; 20:21).

An exception to the law regarding marriage and intercourse with a BROTHER'S WIFE (Lev.18:16) was made in Deuteronomy 25:5-10 where the family name of the dead husband was perpetuated by the husband's brother if he died childless. But in the case of King Herod marrying Herodias, the divorced WIFE of his BROTHER Philip who was still alive, the marriage was not proper according to John the Baptist (Matt.14:4; Mark 16:8; Luke 3:19). Herod was totally unconverted, yet even he was responsible for obeying God.

Abraham didn't marry his "half sister" (Gen.20:12). Sarah was Abraham's HALF-NIECE. A sister merely means a close relative. Abraham calls Lot his "brother" in 13:8 yet we know Lot was actually Abraham's nephew (11:31). Sarah is identified as "Yiscah" the daughter of Haran (11:29) by Josephus (Ant.1:6:5) and Rashi (Targum Yonathan). Adam's children intermarried before mutational defects had a chance to accumulate and/or they didn't have a problem with mutations then because the antediluvian canopy protected them from harmful radiation.

In 1 Corinthians 9:5 Paul asked, "Have we not power (no right) to lead about a SISTER, a WIFE, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren
of the Lord, and Cephas?" Here a wife is called a "SISTER" -- not literally -- but in the sense of one who does God's will (Matt.12:50). Also in Song of Solomon 4:9-12, 5:1-2 and 8:8 the groom refers to his bride as a SISTER. The sense of being closely related may also apply since "BROTHER" and "SISTER" are used loosely in the Bible.

Numbers 36:11 allows FIRST COUSIN marriages.

An increase in congenital malformations and perinatal mortality accompany inbreeding. When parents are SIBLINGS, or where there is a PARENT-CHILD relationship, the offspring have about a 30 percent risk of retardation or some other serious defect. But for parents who are FIRST COUSINS, there is only about a four percent chance the offspring will have a birth defect. "Already one percent of all children born will require some professional help with genetic problems, and that percentage doubles in FIRST COUSIN marriages" (p.1, The Five Worlds by Whitcomb). Marriage between a MAN and his NIECE has an eight percent risk of malformation because of the danger that the child will inherit harmful recessive genes from one of the couple's common ancestors (p.189, R.K. Harrison, Leviticus, IVP).

FIRST COUSINS have offspring with identical genes in a 1:7 ratio. UNCLES and NIECES have offspring with identical genes in a 1:3 ratio. And BROTHERS and SISTERS are 1:1. Many of these paired genes will be recessive mutants and therefore harmful (p.370, Rushdoony's The Institutes of Biblical Law).

Close inbreeding, as long as it is not too close, makes the species better by removing recessive lethal genes from the gene pool (pp.189-190, Harrison).

Leviticus 18:6 states, "No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the Eternal" (NIV; cp.18:7-18 & 20:12-21). Why? "Customs and laws which forbade inbreeding (Marriage of close relatives) have existed in many countries since antiquity. Their biological justification lies in the fact that the offspring of matings of close relatives are frequently INFERIOR IN VIGOUR to crossbred individuals.... In maize no inbred lines equal crossbred strains in vigour or yield. In man, inbreeding is generally deleterious, yet marriages of BROTHERS and SISTERS practised in some royal families in Egypt and Peru allegedly led to no undesirable results" (p.921, vol.11, Encyc. Brit. 1973). As the Encyclopedia Americana states, "all crossbreeding organisms carry numerous unexpressed DELETERIOUS, or HARMFUL, genes. These genes, which are the inevitable by-product of mutation and are usually recessive, are exposed or brought to expression by inbreeding, by which the chance of two recessives appearing in a single progeny is greatly increased. The depression of vigor commonly observed in the inbred offspring of most animals and many plants is caused by the expression of the deleterious mutant genes" (p.630, vol.14, Encyc. Amer. 1980). According to Genetics: A Survey of the Principles of Heredity, 5th edition, page 176, "first cousins, however, have one chance in 16 (of having a child die of a deformity if they have a lethal gene) if both have the same grandparents" (p.237, The New Eden).

Incest "is only a criminal offense in England if there is sexual intercourse between a MAN and his MOTHER, DAUGHTER, SISTER or GRANDDAUGHTER.... Marriage law in the United States is subject to the exclusive province of each state.... In general, a marriage is incestuous if one attempts to marry an ANCESTOR, a DESCENDANT, an AUNT (UNCLE), a SISTER (BROTHER) of the whole or the half blood or any of their respective spouses. In the early 1970s, over half the states had prohibited marriages between FIRST COUSINS, while several forbade marriage to a GRANDNIECE (GRANDNEPHEW) and to a FIRST COUSIN once removed.... In none of the states is marriage forbidden between a man and his deceased or divorced husband's brother.... In France ... Marriage is prohibited between all ASCENDANTS and DESCENDANTS in the direct line, and between persons RELATED BY MARRIAGE in the same line, between BROTHER and SISTER, between UNCLE and NIECE, AUNT and NEPHEW, between ADOPTER'S and ADOPTIVE children, between ADOPTIVE children, and between BROTHER-IN-LAW and SISTER-IN-LAW when the marriage producing the affinity has been dissolved by divorce" (pp.932-936, vol.14, Encyc. Brit. 1973).

The marriage of Amram and Jochebed (Ex.6:20) may have been a NEPHEW-AUNT marriage if she was indeed Levi's literal "daughter" (Ex.2:1). However, "daughter" might also mean granddaughter (Septuagint; Syriac) in which case Amram and Jochebed were FIRST COUSINS. Amram was the son of Kehoth, son of Levi (Ex.16:18; Num.3:18; 26:58; 1 Chr.5:29; 23:13). Jochebed was Levi's "daughter" (Ex.2:1; 6:20; Num.26:59).

Johann Sebastian Bach married his FIRST COUSIN Maria Barbara Bach. Of his four sons, two became important musicians and composers -- Wilhelm Friedemann and Carl Philipp Emanuel. Charles Robert Darwin married his FIRST COUSIN Emma Wedgwood. Of his five sons, four became prominent in the scientific world -- Sir George Howard, Francis, Leonard and Horace. Just as genius and talent run in families, so also faith runs in families (2 Tim.1:5).


Pluck Off Buds of Fruit Trees For the First 3 Years
So the Trunk Has Time to Develop

19:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto all the congregation of the (Gemini; Perseus & Cepheus) children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.

3 Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my sabbaths: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

4 Turn ye not unto (solar or Lunar) idols, nor make to yourselves (red radius) molten (silver or gold) gods: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

5 And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the Lord, ye shall offer it at your own will.

6 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be (solar) burnt in the fire.

Flesh decays and putrefies

7 And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted.

8 Therefore every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the (Shekinah) Lord: and that soul shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off from among his (Gemini) people.

9 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the (lunar grain) corners of thy (red radius) field, neither shalt thou gather the (solar grain) gleanings of thy harvest.

10 And thou shalt not glean thy (red vine) vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every (lunar or solar) grape of thy (red radius) vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the (Castor) poor and (Pollux) stranger: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

11 Ye shall not (Serpens) steal, neither (red radius fork tongue) deal falsely, neither (red radius fork tongue) lie one to another.

12 And ye shall not swear by my name (red radius fork tongue) falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the (solar golden or lunar silver coins) wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the (sun on red radius horizon) morning.

14 Thou shalt not (red radius fork tongue) curse the (lunar ears) deaf, nor put a (solar) stumblingblock before the (Ophiuchus or Hercules) blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

16 Thou shalt not go up and down as a (red radius fork tongue) talebearer among thy (Gemini, Cepheus, Perseus) people: neither shalt thou stand against the (red radius) blood of thy neighbour; I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

17 Thou (Pollux) shalt not hate thy brother (Castor) in thine (lunar) heart: thou (Ophiuchus) shalt in any wise (red radius) rebuke thy (Hercules) neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him (lest you incur sin because of him -- AMPC).

18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the (Gemini) children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy (Taurus) cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy (red radius) field with mingled (lunar & solar) seed: neither shall a garment mingled of (lunar white) linen and (solar golden) woollen come upon thee.

Cross breeding between white-tailed deer and mule deer produces offspring that inherit neither parent's strategies for avoiding predators. That is first generation. Second generation hybrids will even lack hybrid vigour. Mule-deer-Whitetail Hybrids raised in captivity typically don't fare well. Those in the wild usually fare worse.

You should not plant cucumbers near watermelons because they will cross and produce a perversion and "be defiled" (Deut. 22:9). Likewise, the various members of the muskmelon and cantaloupe family will mix with pumpkins and certain types of squash. They should not be planted near one another. But there is nothing wrong with planting peas or beans among your corn, or planting two pasture grasses together. In neither of these cases would one crop "defile" or mix with the other. God causes each plant to reproduce "after it's kind" (Gen. 1:11,21,24). God twice commands us to follow that example instead of mingling our crops (Lev. 19:19: Deut. 22:9). We should plant only those seeds that will reproduce after their kind -- known as heirloom or non-hybrid seeds. Hybrids that produce confusion and an inferior quality after the first year should not be used. "God is not the author of confusion" (1 Cor. 14:33). God wants Christians to produce and own quality products.

The primary disadvantage of hybrid plants is the seeds cannot be saved from year to year. Seeds saved from hybrid plants usually will not produce the same plant the following year because most varieties are not self-sustaining. Offspring of hybrids usually show an unpredictable mixture of characteristics from the grandparent plants instead of being similar to the parent. Some gardeners feel that the taste of hybrid vegetables does not equal that of heirloom varieties.Open-pollinated, also known as heirloom or standard, plants are varieties that have stable traits from one generation to the next. Hybrids have high yields and are homogenous in phenotype but require much input (fertilizers, pesticides etc.).F1 hybrids mature at the same time when raised under the same environmental conditions. They all ripen simultaneously. Traditional heirloom varieties are often more useful to gardeners because they crop over a longer period of time, avoiding gluts and food shortages. Hybrid vigour (desired characteristics such as yield, rate of growth and maturity) diminishes with each generation

For years modern man has been developing and raising all sorts of new varieties of hybrid corn in order to squeeze a few extra bushels out of each acre -- and put a little more waste fat on animals in the feed lots. This is not motivated by brotherly love, but by greed. In an experiment on 16 farms in Illinois, hybrid and open-pollinated corn were grown in neighboring strips under the same conditions, and the produce was tested by Armour's Institute of Research in Chicago. The open-pollinated corn tested 12% protein. None of the hybrids showed more than 8%. All the hybrids were short on 7 to 9 minerals, and all failed completely to pick up cobalt, whose deficiency is one cause of Bang's disease. By rapidly using some trace elements and leaving others untouched, hybrids unbalance and thereby poison the soil ten times as quickly as open-pollinated corn, horticulturalists now admit. (see Soil Fertility and Animal Health by Dr. Wm. A. Albrecht) When Mexican farmers in the U.S.A. try hybrids for home use, they usually quickly give them up. Hybrids, they discover, are simply no good for tortillas: the flavor, color, texture, and consistency are all inferior to that of open-pollinated corn. Those interested in quality prefer natural varieties and natural methods of production. Shortcuts to riches are not good for anyone.

Cattle selectively bred by greedy men are "not improved from the standpoint of the animals themselves" (p. 621, The Taurine World). One of the most universally recognized facts of breeding is that species untouched by man are always more hardy. Men breed for a few isolated characteristics such as big udders or blocky frames and much fat. They sacrifice quality of the whole animal for more profit. The extra milk produced by such cattle is watery. The extra meat is not as tender and yet more fatty. Characteristics omitted because they were not considered important were quality of meat and milk, vitality, adaptability to extremes in weather, disease resistance, intelligence, gentleness, and other desirable traits which still remain in older breeds that were not developed by the Bakewell system. However, Jacob bred for strength, and God rewarded his efforts (Gen. 30:37-43 & 31:38). As a constant safeguard against inbreeding, Jacob maintained a flock ratio of one male to ten females (Gen. 32:13-14). Modern authorities unwisely recommend one male to thirty or forty females -- or one male to thousands of females, in artificial insemination -- a calculated risk for inheriting many defects. Many breeders recognize that cross-breeding many times causes a loss of docility as well as quality. God forbids crossbreeding (Lev. 19:19). He intended that each species should reproduce "after its kind" (Gen. 1).

Each kind of fabric has different characteristics with regard to stretchability, strength, absorbency and warmth. Each of these characteristics is weakened or diminished when combined with another kind of fabric.

20 And whosoever (Castor) lieth carnally with a (Pollux) woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; she shall be (red radius) scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free.

21 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the (Shekinah) Lord, unto the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a (Aries) ram for a trespass offering.

22 And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the (Aries) ram of the trespass offering before the (Shekinah) Lord for his sin which he hath done: and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him.

23 And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the (solar or lunar) fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of.

Literally, then shall ye circumcise its uncircumcision, its fruit, that is, cut off or pinch off its uncircumcision, which the text itself explains as “its fruit.” The metaphorical use of circumcision is thus explained by the text itself: it denotes the fruit as disqualified or unfit. As the produce of the earliest year when let to grow upon the trees is both stunted and tasteless, and, moreover, as by plucking off the fruit or pinching off the blossom the trees will thrive better and bear more abundantly afterwards, the Lawgiver enacts here as law that which was in vogue amongst careful husbandmen from time immemorial, thus debarring greedy owners from acting in a way which would ultimately be to their own material injury."The wisdom of this law is very striking. Every gardener will teach us not to let fruit trees bear in their earliest years, but to pluck off the blossoms: and for this reason, that they will thus thrive the better, and bear more abundantly afterwards. The very expression, 'to regard them as uncircumcised,' suggests the propriety of pinching them off; I do not say cutting them off, because it is generally the hand, and not a knife, that is employed in this operation" [Michaelis]. As uncircumcised, i.e. as unclean, not to be eaten, but cast away, and counted abominable, as the foreskins are. Probably the object was to allow the tree time to become accustomed to the soil, and so to postpone the enjoyment of the fruit till both quantity and quality had had time to develop.Three years. This precept was serviceable,1. To the trees themselves, which grew the better and faster, being early stript of those fruits, which otherwise would have derived to themselves and drawn away much more of the strength from the root and tree. 2. To men, both because the fruit then was waterish, undigested, and unwholesome, and because hereby men were taught to bridle their appetites; a lesson of great use and absolute necessity in a godly life. 3. To God, who required and deserved the first-fruits, which must be also of the best, and so they could not be in this time.

24 But in the fourth year all the (solar & lunar) fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the (Shekinah) Lord withal.

25 And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the (solar & lunar) fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

26 Ye shall not eat any thing with the (red radius) blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times.

27 Ye shall not (lunar) round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou (lunar or solar) mar the corners of thy beard.

765678543

28 Ye shall not make any (red radius) cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any (red radius) marks upon you: I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

29 Do not prostitute thy (Castor) daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

30 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

31 Regard not them that have (Milky Way) familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

32 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

33 And if a stranger (Ophiuchus) sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.

34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard (length), in (lunar or solar) weight, or in (red radius) measure (quantity).

Inflating the currency is unjust. Get back on gold and silver standard.

36 Just (lunar) balances, just (solar & lunar) weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

37 Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the (Shekinah) Lord.

"HYBRID" Means "INSULT" In Greek!

Mixed marriages between any two of the primary races often creates offspring LESS ABLE TO ADAPT to their environment than either parent. "As a general rule hybrids are INTERMEDIATE between parental type in their morphological and physiological characteristics. The hybrid between a red-flowered and a lemon-flowered species of columbine has orange-colored flowers. Large-bodied species or races of animals crossed with small-bodied species usually yield hybrids with an INTERMEDIATE body size (unless the gene happens to be dominant or recessive rather than normal).... A hybrid may also develop ABNORMALLY ("defiled" -- Deut.22:9) so that it does not resemble either parent or the average condition between the parents; such a hybrid is TRANSGRESSIVE. An example is the DWARFISH or INVIABLE hybrid resulting from vigorous parents.... Hybrid luxuriance refers to the numerous instances where a hybrid is larger or faster growing, or otherwise exceeds its parents in some quality, but is NOT ADAPTIVELY SUPERIOR -- that is, it would not succeed better in life than its smaller parents. The mule, for example, is a stronger animal than the horse or the donkey, but it is also STERILE, whereas the parental species are fully fertile. The overall value of the mule in nature is therefore close to zero. Hybrid corn is LESS NUTRITIOUS and MORE SUSCEPTIBLE to BUGS and DISEASES so must be sprayed with pesticides. Hybrid cattle must be vaccinated because of being PRONE to DISEASE whereas purebred cattle stay healthy. In the wild a white- tail deer gallops to escape predators and a mule deer runs by executing a series of four-legged jumps. A hybrid between these two types of deer neither gallops nor jumps, but instead performs a CLUMSY MIXTURE of the two. Thus the hybrid is MORE VULNERABLE to PREDATORS in any environment (Discover magazine, Nov. 1993, p.14). Luxuriance invariably DISAPPEARS in the PROGENY of the hybrids, if there are any" (Encyc. Amer. 1980 14:629). Even when a hybrid is adaptively superior to either parent because RECESSIVE MUTANT GENES are not able to express themselves, "Suppression of the effects of recessive mutant genes lasts only during the lifetime of the FIRST GENERATION hybrids ... effects may appear in later generations" (ibid. p.630).

"The progeny of hybrids ... comprises a highly variable and diversified array of types.... The MAJORITY of the variants ... will prove ILL-ADAPTED for any available habitat and so will eventually be ELIMINATED by natural selection. Some of the new types, however, may inherit a favorable combination of characters" (ibid., p.631). In humans, of course, the children of INTERRACIAL couples cannot be "ELIMINATED" to prevent them from further breeding as in plants or animals. But "hybrids are usually partially sterile" (ibid., p.631). Hosea 5:7 mentions "strange children." (HYBRIDS?) And Jude 7 mentions that "Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh (abnormal sex and OTHER RACES?), are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." Isaiah 2:6 says, "Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers (other RACES)." "Each species has passed through many generations of natural selection (TEN required); in the process it has become ADAPTED to its habitat and has achieved an INTERNAL BALANCE and HARMONY in its genetic constitution. In the F2 derivatives of an interspecific HYBRID, the favorable gene combinations are BROKEN UP into NUMEROUS UNTRIED and mostly DISHARMONIOUS mixtures of genes. By crossing among themselves ... the hybrids segregate many new types that are NOT ADAPTED for any HABITAT" (Encyc. Amer. 1980, 14:631). As domestic pedigree horses and dogs are selectively bred by man, so are the human races selectively bred by nature. The HYBRIDIZING of the varieties (races) of the species, whether domesticated animals or man, irretrievably ELIMINATES the superior genetic traits.

To HYBRIDIZE high quality, thoroughbred stock just to make more money produces no "hybrid vigor" or advantage if there are no recessive mutant genes to cover up. This may be the case when dealing with purebreds since they have been selectively bred for generations! But when HYBRIDIZATION gives an immediate short-term gain, it does so by creating an UNBALANCED, DISHARMONIOUS animal or plant for the sake of higher profits. But the organism only lasts ONE GENERATION and must be continually recreated! If breeding is done God's way, the results will be LASTING and GOOD for ALL GENERATIONS.

Furthermore, extreme HYBRIDS tend to be DEPENDENT on artificial means of irrigation and fertilization so that it COSTS MORE to get the plant to produce. Animal hybrids tend to be LESS than self-sufficient also because they are bred for quick, large supplies of meat or milk WITHOUT THOUGHT to the WHOLE ANIMAL and its OVERALL NEEDS! A rancher makes a larger profit only to pay the veterinarian more often. No doubt the quality of food that plant and animal hybrids produce is inferior to that of purebreds also. Who then first "discovered (how to breed) mules"? ESAU'S branch (Gen.36:24).

HYBRID garden seeds don't breed true when the seeds are saved from year to year, so the farmer is forced to depend on a dealer each year for new seed. He's not independent, nor is his food supply guaranteed. The product of hybrid seeds will either be STERILE or will REVERT to one of the parent varieties. HYBRIDS are LESS HEALTHY and REQUIRE MORE chemicals to kill pests. Pests attack SICK or WEAK plants -- not healthy ones. This is why the word "HYBRID" means "INSULT" or "OUTRAGE" in Greek (Encyc. Brit. 1973, 11:921).

Their Red Blood (Guilt) is Upon Them (Constellations)

20:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

2 Again, thou shalt say to the (Gemini) children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the (Gemini) children of Israel, or of the (Perseus, Cepheus) strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his (lunar baby) seed unto (Taurus) Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the (Gemini) people of the land shall (lunar) (red radius) stone him with (lunar) stones.



Cleitarchus' paraphrase of a scholium to Plato's Republic has a description of the practice which predates the fall of Carthage in 146 BC: "There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall upon the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier. Thus it is that the 'grin' is known as 'sardonic laughter,' since they die laughing." (trans. Paul G. Mosca) Diodorus Siculus (20.14): "There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." Diodorus also relates that relatives were forbidden to weep and that when Agathocles defeated Carthage, the Carthaginian nobles believed they had displeased the gods by substituting low-born children for their own children. They attempted to make amends by sacrificing 200 children of the best families at once, and in their enthusiasm actually sacrificed 300 children.

Freeman in The History of Sicily from the Earliest Times (1894) states that the Carthaginian nobles had acquired and raised children not of their own for the express purpose of sacrificing them to the god. The author states that during the siege, the 200 high-born children were sacrificed in addition to another 300 children who were initially saved from the fire by the sacrifice of these acquired substitutes. Plutarch wrote in De Superstitione 171: "... but with full knowledge and understanding they themselves offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds; meanwhile the mother stood by without a tear or moan; but should she utter a single moan or let fall a single tear, she had to forfeit the money, and her child was sacrificed nevertheless; and the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people. The 12th-century Rashi, commenting on Jeremiah 7:31 stated: Tophet is Moloch, which was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved. A rabbinical tradition attributed to the Yalkout of Rabbi Simeon,[14] says that the idol was hollow and was divided into seven compartments, in one of which they put flour, in the second turtle-doves, in the third a ewe, in the fourth a ram, in the fifth a calf, in the sixth an ox, and in the seventh a child, which were all burned together by heating the statue inside.

3 And I will set my face against that man, and will (Perseus) (red radius) cut him off from among his (Gemini, Cepheus & Perseus) people; because he hath given of his (lunar) seed unto (Taurus) Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

4 And if the (Gemini) people of the land do any ways hide their (lunar) eyes from the man, when he giveth of his (lunar baby) seed unto (Taurus) Molech, and (red radius) kill him not:

5 Then I will set my (Ophiuchus) face against that (Hercules) man, and against his family, and will (Perseus) (red radius) cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with (Taurus) Molech, from among their (Gemini) people.

6 And the soul that turneth after such as have (Milky Way) familiar spirits, and after (red radius wand and pointed cap) wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will (Perseus) (red radius) cut him off from among his people.

4edc

7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye (red radius) holy: for I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the (Shekinah) Lord which sanctify you.

9 For every one that curseth his (Castor) father or his (Pollux) mother shall be surely (red radius) put to death: he hath cursed his (Castor) father or his (Pollux) mother; his (red radius) blood shall be upon him.

10 And the (Pollux) man that committeth (red radius) adultery with another man's (Castor) wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be (red radius) put to death.

11 And the (Pollux) man that lieth with his father's (Castor) wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely be (red radius) put to death; their (red radius) blood shall be upon them.

12 And if a (Pollux) man lie with his (Castor) daughter in law, both of them shall surely be (red radius) put to death: they have wrought confusion; their (red radius) blood shall be upon them.

13 If a (Pollux) man also lie with (Castor) mankind, as he lieth with a (Castor) woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to (red radius) death; their (red radius) blood shall be upon them.

14 And if a (Pollux) man take a (Castor) wife and her (Castor) mother, it is wickedness: they shall be (solar) burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.

The punishment of death, was to be by stoning, according to Leviticus 20:2, Leviticus 20:27, and Deuteronomy 22:21.; and by the burning (Leviticus 20:14) we are not to understand death by fire, or burning alive, but, as we may clearly see from Joshua 7:15 and Joshua 7:25, burning the corpse after death. This was also the case in Leviticus 21:9 and Genesis 38:24.

15 And if a (Pollux) man lie with a (Big Dog, Taurus, Aries) beast, he shall surely be (red radius) put to death: and ye shall (Perseus) (red radius) slay the beast.

16 And if a (Castor) woman approach unto any (Big Dog, Taurus, Aries, Drago, Serpens) beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt (Perseus) (red radius) kill the (Castor) woman, and the beast: they shall surely be (Perseus) (red radius) put to death; their (red radius) blood shall be upon them.

17 And if a (Pollux) man shall take his (Castor) sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and (lunar eyeballs) see her nakedness, and she (lunar eyeballs) see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be (Perseus) (lunar eyeballs) cut off in the (lunar eyeballs) sight of their (Gemini, Cepheus, Perseus, Ophiuchus and Hercules) people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.

uncovering nakedness plainly appears to mean not marriage, but fornication or adultery. Cut off probably refers to some special form of public excommunication, accompanied, it may be, by expulsion from the camp.

Seeing is here understood for touching her or lying with her; for, the sense of seeing is oft put for other senses, as for hearing, Genesis 42:1, compared with Acts 7:12 Exodus 20:18 Revelation 1:12; and for touching, as John 20:25,29. That act is expressed by words parallel to this of seeing, as by uncovering, or discovering, and by knowing, Genesis 4:1. So it is directly explained in the following words, he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness, which manifestly signifies lying with her. It is not probable that an equal punishment would have been appointed to an immodest sight, and to the highest act of filthiness. Nor seems there to be any reason why this crime should be restrained to this rather than to any other relations, when it was as great, yea, a greater crime in some other relations. In the sight of their people, i.e. publicly, for the terror and caution of others.

Take her to be his wife, or commit lewdness with her, it is not lawful to marry her, or lie with her, see Leviticus 18:9, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; which is not to be understood of an immodest view, exposing to each other what should not be seen, and pleasing themselves with such obscene sights, but of the act of lying together, for so it is afterwards explained by a phrase frequently used to express that action by; and it denotes, as Aben Ezra observes, their mutual consent and agreement in it:

18 And if a (Pollux) man shall lie with a (Castor) woman having her (red radius menstrual) sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her (red radius) fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her (red radius) blood: and both of them shall be (Perseus) (red radius) cut off from among their people.

19 And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's (Castor) sister, nor of thy father's (Castor) sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity.

20 And if a (Pollux) man shall lie with his uncle's (Castor) wife, he hath uncovered his uncle's nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless.

21 And if a (Pollux) man shall take his brother's (Castor) wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness; they shall be childless.

22 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the (Cetus) land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.

23 And ye shall not (Ophiuchus) walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.

24 But I have (red radius) said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with (Milky Way lunar white) milk and (solar golden) honey: I am the Lord your God, which have (red radius) separated you (Ophiuchus) from other (Gemini) people.

25 Ye shall therefore put difference between (Aries & Taurus) clean beasts and (Scorpio, Big Dog, Drago, Ursa Minor, Cetus) unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that (Scorpio, Drago, Serpens) creepeth on the ground, which I have (red radius) separated from you as unclean.

26 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have (Perseus) (red radius) severed you from other (Gemini) people, that ye should be mine.

27 A (Pollux) man also or (Castor) woman that hath a (Milky Way) familiar spirit, or that is a (red radius wand) wizard, shall surely be put to (red radius) death: they shall (lunar and solar) stone them with stones: their (red radius) blood shall be upon them.
