Levitus Chapter 18 and immoral sexual behavior and immoral behavior towards children.
Leviticus Chapter 18 is an interesting chapter. It discusses various depraved behavior that the nations before Israel were kicked out who no longer exist today. Of course some claim well Israel stole the land and doesn't the torah believe in property rights. The answer is yes and the reason the nations were kicked out was because they were not respecting the land of Israel and it's property and it's holiness. And we are warned not engage in these practices or else we will be kicked out as well as we are not respecting the land. To have property it requires you to work for it and not just feel you are "entitled" to land.
