Deuteronomy 13 ©
Enticers to idolatry must be stoned to death, without regard to nearness of relation. Idolatrous cities must be utterly destroyed.
Thou shalt enot hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your fGod *proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be hput to death; because ihe hath 1spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou jput the evil away from the midst of thee.
¶If kthy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or lthe wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, mwhich is as thine own soul, nentice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, owhich thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;
Namely, pof the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;
And there shall cleave nought of the 4cursed thing to thine hand: bthat the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, cas he hath sworn unto thy fathers;
When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, dto do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.
