Hi there.  I was unable to find the list of how to properly post so I
hope you will excuse my errors (if there are any).  My question deal
with the text of Leviticus 20:17 and the third word laqach...  (I am
not sure how to properly transliterate this yet).  Does this context
suggest or imply "rape" or is it traditionally thought to mean
something less aggressive?

Thanks in advance,
John Mark Butzu
