Idolaters out to death
13:1 If there arise among you a
prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives ya'll a sign or a
13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake
unto ya'll, saying Let us go after other gods, which you have
not known, and let us serve them;
13:3 You will not listen unto the words of that prophet, or
that dreamer of dreams for the LORD your God proveth you, to know
whether ya'll love the LORD your God with all your heart and with
all your soul.
13:4 Ya'll shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and
keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ya'll shall serve
him, and cleave unto him.
13:5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to
death ; because he has spoken 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 ya'll out of
the way which the LORD your God commanded ya'll to walk in. So
will you put the evil away from the midst of ya'll.
13:6 If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your
daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend, which [is] as
your own soul, entice ya'll secretly, saying, Let us go and serve
other gods, which you have not known, you, nor your fathers ;
13:7 [Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about
you, near unto ya'll, or far off from ya'll, from the [one] end of
the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth ;
13:8 You will not consent unto him, nor listen unto him;
neither shall your eye pity him, neither will you spare,
neither will you conceal him
13:9 But you will surely kill him; your hand shall be first
upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the
13:10 And you will stone him with stones, that he die ; because
he has sought to thrust ya'll away from the LORD your God, which
brought ya'll out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
13:11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more
any such wickedness as this is among you.
Idolatrous cities to be destroyed.
13:12 If you will hear [say] in one of your cities, which the
LORD your God has given ya'll to stay there, saying,
13:13 [Certain] men, the children of Belial, are gone out from
among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city,
saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ya'll have not known ;
13:14 Then will you enquire, and make search, and ask
diligently ; and, behold, [if it be] truth, [and] the thing
certain, [that] such abomination is worked among you;
13:15 You will surely strike the inhabitants of that city with
the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that [is]
therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
13:16 And you will gather all the spoil of it into the midst of
the street thereof, and will burn with fire the city, and all
the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD your God and it shall
be an heap for ever ; it shall not be built again.
13:17 And there shall cleave nothing of the cursed thing to your
hand that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and
show ya'll mercy, and have compassion upon ya'll, and multiply
ya'll, as he has sworn unto your fathers ;
13:18 When you will listen to the voice of the LORD your God,
to keep all his commandments which I command ya'll this day, to do
[that which is] right in the eyes of the LORD your God.
