 18:10
 18:11
 18:12
18:11 Do not commit incest with a daughter that your father's wife has borne to your father. She is your sister, and you must not commit incest with her.
Ervat bat-eshet avicha moledet avicha achotcha hi lo tegaleh ervatah.
18:12 Do not commit incest with your father's sister, since she is your father's blood relative.
Ervat achot-avicha lo tegaleh sher avicha hi.



Commentary:

with a daughter...
  If a woman is one's sister borne by his father's wife, there is a double penalty (Yevamoth 22b; Sefer HaMitzvoth, Negative 333). This also teaches that a step-sister who is the daughter of a stepmother from another man, is permitted (Yad, Issurey Biyah 3:2).
