- 1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "You shall also say to the sons of Israel: `Any man from the sons of Israel or from the aliens sojourning in Israel who R475 gives any of his offspring F266 to Molech, shall surely be put to death; the R476 people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 `I will also set My face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given some of his offspring F267 to Molech, so R477 as to defile My sanctuary and to R478 profane My holy name. 4 `If the people of the land, however, should F268 ever disregard that man when he gives any of his offspring F269 to Molech, so as not to put him to death, 5 then I Myself will set My face against that man and against his family, and I will cut off from among their people both him and all those who play the harlot after him, by playing the harlot after Molech. 6 `As for the person who turns to mediums R479 F270 and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people. 7 `You shall consecrate yourselves therefore and be R480 holy, for I am the LORD your God. 8 `You R481 shall keep My statutes and practice them; I am the LORD who sanctifies you. 9 `If R482 there is anyone who curses his father or his mother, he shall surely be put to death; he has cursed his father or his mother, his bloodguiltiness is upon him.
