Deuteronomy 12:29-31

Warning Against Idolatry

29“When athe Lord your God cuts off before you the nations whom you go in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, 30take care bthat you be not ensnared to follow them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods?—that I also may do the same.’ 31 cYou shall not worship the Lord your God in that way, for every dabominable thing that the Lord hates they have done for their gods, for ethey even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods.
