Yes, Ted, I agree with you -- and I find it odder still that Metzger, as
one of the team involved in the production of the NRSV, should ignore that
translation which runs ( as does the RSV ):

>> for a man is living with his father's wife. <<<

  On your other query, I can quote the Anchor Bible Dictionary:
>>Leviticus 18 and 20 and Deuteronomy 27 detail strong incest
prohibitions. In one's parent's generation, sex with parents, step-mother,
paternal uncle and wife, and both maternal and paternal aunts was prohibited.<<
