You shall not uncover
of your father
, that is, the nakedness
of your mother
. She is your mother
; you are not to uncover
'You shall not uncover the
nakedness of your father, that is, the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother. You shall not uncover her nakedness.
Amplified 2015 Translator's Notes:
Literal renderings, alternate translations or explanations.
is a reference to his wife in her role as his sexual partner, i.e. the
that belongs to him alone by virtue of their marriage (cf 1 Cor 7:4). Otherwise, the literal meaning would refer to intimate relations with the father himself, including homosexuality. The text itself states that this is not the meaning, especially in 20:11a (
The man who lies...has uncovered his father's nakedness)
NASB Cross References:
a man who lies with his father's wife, he has uncovered his father's nakedness; both of them shall surely be put to death, their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
