 18:24
 18:25
 18:26
18:25 The land became defiled, and when I directed My providence at the sin committed there, the land vomited out its inhabitants.
Vatitma ha'arets va'efkod avonah aleyha vataki ha'arets et-yoshveyha.
18:26 You, [however,] must keep My decrees and laws, and not become involved in any of these disgusting perversions - neither the native born nor any foreigner who settles among you.
Ushmartem atem et-chukotay ve'et-mishpatay velo ta'asu mikol hato'evot ha'eleh ha'ezrach vehager hagar betochechem.



Commentary:

foreigner...
  (Ibn Ezra). Since a gentile must also keep most sexual laws. Or, 'proselyte' (Sifra). Although the laws involving blood relatives do not apply to a proselyte (who has no blood relatives from the time he was a gentile), all the other laws apply to him.
