Leviticus 20


Laws Regarding Idolatry

1And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2And to the sons of Israel, you shall speak, saying, If any from the sons of Israel, or of the ones being foreigners in Israel, who ever should give his semen to a chief god, to death let him be put to death! The nation, the people upon the land shall stone him with stones. 3And I will set my face against that man, and I will destroy him from out of his people. For of his semen he gave to a chief god, that he should defile my holy place, and should profane the name -- the one having been sanctified to me. 4And if in disdain [5should overlook 1the 2native-born 3of the 4land] with their eyes of that man, in his giving his semen to a chief god, to not kill him, 5then I shall set my face against that man, and his kin, and I will destroy him, and all the ones consenting with him, so as for them to fornicate with the ruling gods of their people. 6And a soul who ever should follow after ones who deliver oracles or enchanters, so as to fornicate after them, I will set my face against that soul, and I will destroy it from out of its people. 7And you shall be sanctified, and you shall be holy, for [4am holy 1I 2the  lord 3your God]. 8And you shall keep my orders, and you shall do them. I am the  lord, the one sanctifying you. 9The man, a man who ever [2wickedly 1should speak] of his father or his mother, unto death let him be put to death! [3of his father 4or 5of his mother 2wickedly 1he spoke], he shall be liable

And I will give it to you for a possession; a land flowing milk and honey. I am the  lord your God who separated you from all the nations. 25And you shall separate yourselves between the cattle of the clean and unclean; and between the winged creatures of the clean, and the unclean. And you shall not make abhorrent your souls among the cattle, and among the winged creatures, and among all the reptiles of the earth, which I separated to you for uncleanness. 26And you will be holy to me, for I am holy, the  lord your God, the one separating you from all the nations, to be mine. 27And a man or woman who ever of them should become a deliverer of oracles or enchanter, to death let them be put to death -- both! By stones stone them! they are liable.
