- 1 "You R588 shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep which has a blemish or any defect, F248 for that is a detestable thing to the LORD your God. 2 "If R589 there is found in your midst, in any of your towns, F249 which the LORD your God is giving you, a man or a woman who does what is evil in the sight of the LORD your God, by transgressing His covenant, 3 and has gone and served R590 other gods and worshiped them, or R591 the sun or the moon or any of the heavenly host, which R592 I have not commanded, 4 and if it is told you and you have heard of it, then you shall inquire thoroughly. Behold, if it is true and the thing certain that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, 5 then you shall bring out that man or that woman who has done this evil deed to your gates, that is, the man or the woman, and you R593 shall stone them to death. F250 6 "On R594 the evidence F251 of two witnesses or three witnesses, he who is to die shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the evidence F251 of one witness. 7 "The R595 hand of the witnesses shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. So R596 you shall purge the evil from your midst.
