What are the implications of "Achoscha Bas Avicha"?

1.

Rashi: It implies even if she is the daughter of the woman that his father raped.

2.

Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: It means whether it is a sister whom your father bore from another woman or whom your mother bore from another man. 1 Yonasan: It implies whether she is the daughter of his father or his mother from their first marriage or from their second marriage.


1

Targum Yonasan adds 'whom your father bore from your mother' and 'whom your mother bore from your father' (See Na'ar Yonasan).

2)

And what are the implications of "Moledes Bayis O Moledes Chutz"?

1.

Rashi: This implies whether his father is permitted to retain the woman's mother or we tell him to send her away, if she is for example a Mamzeres or a Nesinah. 1

2.

Ramban #1 (citing Yevamos, 23a): It implies whether his father is permitted to retain the woman's mother or we tell him to send her away - because she is one of the Chayvei Kerisus (or Chayvei Misos Beis-Din). 2

3.

Ramban #2 and Seforno: With reference to the daughter of his mother, it implies that his sister is forbidden, irrespective of whether she is born to her from a man to whom she is married or from a man with whom she had illicit relations. 3


1

Whom his father is forbidden to retain because she is one of the Chayvei La'avin - even though the Kidushin was effective. See Ramban's objection to this explanation.

2

On whom Kidushin do not take effect. The only exceptions are the daughter of a Shifchah or a Nochris, whose status she adopts (Ramban). Refer to 18:11:1:1.

3

Which we might otherwise have thought he (her brother) is not committed to treat with the honor of a sister (Ramban).
