Old Testament Examples There are several clear cases of incest in the Old Testament. Lot, Abraham?s nephew, begat two sons by his own daughters while in a drunken stupor (Genesis 19:30-35). Moses recorded the sordid act as a matter of history, but there is no sanction of the sin in the sacred text. In fact it is placed in a decidedly negative light. Ruben was intimate with Bilhah, his father?s concubine (Genesis 35:22) ? a shameful act that was condemned and penalized (Genesis 49:4). Amnon, one of David?s sons, committed incest/rape against his half-sister, Tamar (2 Samuel 13:7-14), and, as a consequence, was murdered later by the order of Absalom, Tamar?s full brother (2 Samuel 13).
