20. "To lay with" means "have invalid sexual relations"
The actual Hebrew word is ShKV (the Hebrew alphabet is mostly consonants.) It is used pretty often in the Old Testament to mean "have invalid sexual relations," for example: incest (Genesis 19:30-35), rape (Genesis 34:1-2), bestiality (Leviticus 18:23), adultery (Deuteronomy 22:22) and temple prostitution (I Samuel 2:22.) In context, the meaning is pretty clear.

I agree with your evaluation, though. :hi:
