Legal Decisions by Priests and Judges

8If any case arises requiring decision between one kind of homicide and another, one kind of legal right and another, or one kind of assault and another, any case within your towns that is too difficult for you, then you shall arise and go up to e  the place that the  Lord your God will choose. 9 f  And you shall come to the Levitical priests and to the judge who is in office in those days, and you shall consult them, and g  they shall declare to you the decision. 10Then you shall do according to what they declare to you from that place that the  Lord will choose. And you shall be careful to do according to all that they direct you. 11According to the instructions that they give you, and according to the decision which they pronounce to you, you shall do. You shall not turn aside from the verdict that they declare to you, either to the right hand or to the left. 12The man who h  acts presumptuously by not obeying the priest i  who stands to minister there before the  Lord your God, or the judge, that man shall die. So j  you shall purge the evil from Israel.
