 20:13
 20:14
20:13 If a man has intercourse with another man in the same manner as with a woman, both of them have committed a disgusting perversion. They shall be put to death by stoning.
Ve'ish asher yishkav et-zachar mishkevey ishah to'evah asu shneyhem mot yumatu dmeyhem bam.
20:14 If a man marries a woman and her mother, it is a perversion, and both he and [the second one taken] shall be burned with fire.
Ve'ish asher yikach et-ishah ve'et-imah zimah hi ba'esh yisrefu oto ve'ethen velo-tiheyeh zimah betochechem.



Commentary:

by stoning
  See Leviticus 20:9.

the second one taken
  (cf. Saadia). That is, if a man marries a woman legally, his wife's mother and daughter become forbidden to him. Either one who has intercourse with him then incurs the death penalty (Yad, Issurey Biyah 2:7; Sanhedrin 15:11; Rashi).
