Shun Idolatry

1 "If R498 F188 a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, `Let R499 us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,' 3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing R500 you to find out if you R501 love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 "You R502 shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling R503 to Him. 5 "But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put R504 to death, because he has counseled F189 rebellion F190 against the LORD your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, F191 to R505 seduce you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So R506 you shall purge the evil from among you.

6 "If R507 your brother, your mother's son, or your son or daughter, or the wife you F192 cherish, or your friend who is as your own soul, entice you secretly, saying, `Let R508 us go and serve other gods' (whom neither you nor your fathers have known, 7 of the gods of the peoples who are around you, near you or far from you, from one end of the earth to the other end), 8 you R509 shall not yield to him or listen to him; and R510 your eye shall not pity him, nor shall you spare or conceal him. 9 "But R511 you shall surely kill him; your R512 hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. 10 "So you shall stone him to F193 death because he has sought to R513 seduce you from the LORD your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. F194 11 "Then all R514 Israel will hear and be afraid, and will never again do such a wicked thing among you.

12 "If you hear in one of your cities, which the LORD your God is giving you to live in, anyone saying that 13 some worthless men have gone out from among you and have seduced the inhabitants of their city, saying, `Let R515 us go and serve other gods' (whom you have not known), 14 then you shall investigate and search out and inquire thoroughly. If it is true and the matter established that this abomination has been done among you, 15 you R516 shall surely strike the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, utterly F195 destroying it and all that is in it and its cattle with the edge of the sword. 16 "Then R517 you shall gather all its booty into the middle of its open square and burn the city and all its booty with fire as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God; and it shall be a ruin R518 F196 forever. It shall never be rebuilt. 17 "Nothing from that which is put under the ban shall cling to your hand, in order that the LORD may turn from His R519 burning anger and show R520 mercy to you, and have compassion on you and make R521 you increase, just as R522 He has sworn to your fathers, 18 if F197 you will listen to the voice of the LORD your God, keeping F198 all His commandments which I am commanding you today, and F199 doing what is right in the sight of the LORD your God.
