Deuteronomy 13

ECB(i) 1
THE TORAH ON IDOLATRY When a prophet or a dreamer of dreams rises among you, and gives you a sign or an omen; 2 and brings the sign or the omen, whereof he words to you, saying, Let us go after other elohim you have not known and let us serve them! 3 - hearken not to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for Yah Veh your Elohim is testing you, to know whether you love Yah Veh your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Walk after Yah Veh your Elohim and awe him and guard his misvoth and hear his voice and serve him and adhere to him: 5 and deathify that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; because he words to you to revolt from Yah Veh your Elohim - who brought you from the land of Misrayim and redeemed you from the house of servants; and to drive you from the way wherein Yah Veh your Elohim misvahed you to walk. Thus burn evil from your midst. 6 When your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter, or the woman of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, goads you covertly, saying, Come and serve other elohim whom you know not - you, nor thy fathers; 7 of the elohim of the people all around you near you or far from you, from the end of the earth even unto the end of the earth: 8 neither will to him nor hearken to him; your eye neither pity him nor spare him nor cover for him: 9 but in slaughtering, slaughter him; first, your hand on him to deathify him; and afterwards, the hand of all the people: 10 and stone him with stones that he die; because he sought to drive you from Yah Veh your Elohim - who brought you from the land of Misrayim from the house of servants: 11 and all Yisra El hears and awes and adds to not work among you according to this evil word. 12 When, in one of the cities Yah Veh your Elohim gives you to settle, you hear, saying, 13 Men, sons of Beli Yaal, go among you, and drive them who settle the city, saying, Come and serve other elohim whom you know not! 14 - then inquire and probe and ask well; and behold, if it is the truth, and the word established, that such abhorrence is worked among you; 15 in smiting, smite them who settle that city with the mouth of the sword; devote it and all therein and the animals thereof with the mouth of the sword: 16 and gather all the loot thereof midst the wideway thereof; and burn the city and all the loot thereof with fire - totally for Yah Veh your Elohim: and it becomes a heap for eternity; never to be built again. 17 And adhere naught of the devoted to your hand: so that Yah Veh turns from his fuming wrath and gives you mercies; and mercies you and abounds you, as he has oathed to your fathers 18 - when you hearken to the voice of Yah Veh your Elohim - to guard all his misvoth which I misvah you this day - to work what is straight in the eyes of Yah Veh your Elohim.
