by Elizabeth Dilling. The underlining and margin notes are Dilling's:

The full context of this exhibit (without marginal notation) can be found in the21 is of particular interest here, as it was to Dilling, because it makes clear that "He who gives of his seed to Molech" refers to a man who casts children into the idol's fire ("caused his son to pass through the fire"), and not merely semen, as might be inferred. This is further confirmed by Biblical references and Talmud text in Exhibit 68.
