The sins described in this chapter are considered to be very grievous sins by the LORD Himself. They include infanticide (Leviticus 20:2-5), especially in connection with child sacrifice, as practiced in certain idolatrous worship (Leviticus 18:21), spiritism (Leviticus 20:6,27), cursing of parents (Leviticus 20:9), adultery (Leviticus 20:10), incest (Leviticus 20:11), homosexuality (Leviticus 20:13), bestiality (Leviticus 20:15-16), and others. These sins were punishable by death in order to maintain the holiness of the people as a nation set apart to God (Leviticus 20:23-26). Whether or not such punishments should be enforced today is controversial; it is at least obvious that God hates such sins.
