 18:1  18:2
 18:3
18:3 Do not follow the ways of Egypt where you once lived, nor of Canaan, where I will be bringing you. Do not follow [any] of their customs.
Kema'aseh erets-Mistrayim asher yeshavtem-bah lo ta'asu uchema'aseh erets-Kena'an asher ani mevi etchem shamah lo ta'asu uvechukoteyhem lo telechu.



Commentary:

Do not follow...
  This is a specific commandment not to emulate gentiles (Avodah Zarah 11a; Rashi; Yad, Avodath Kokhavim 11:1). See Leviticus 20:23.
