Deuteronomy 13


13:1 If there shall arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of
 dreams, and give thee a sign or a wonder.
13:2 And the sign or the wonder shall come to pass, of which he
 spoke to thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou
 hast not known, and let us serve them;
13:3 Thou shalt not hearken to the words of that prophet, or
 that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to
 know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and
 with all your soul.
13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and
 keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve
 him, and cleave to him.
13:5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put
 to death; because he hath spoken to turn [you] away from the
 LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and
 redeemed you from the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of
 the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So
 shalt thou remove the evil from the midst of thee.
13:6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy
 daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, who [is] as
 thy own soul, shall entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and
 serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy
 fathers;
13:7 [Namely], of the gods of the people who [are] around you,
 nigh to thee, or far off from thee, from [one] end of the earth
 even to the [other] end of the earth;
13:8 Thou shalt not consent to him, nor hearken to him; neither
 shall thy eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt
 thou conceal him:
13:9 But thou shalt surely kill him; thy hand shall be first
 upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all
 the people.
13:10 And thou shalt stone him with stones that he shall die;
 because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy
 God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt from the house
 of bondage.
13:11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more
 any such wickedness as this is, among you.
13:12 If thou shalt hear, in one of thy cities, which the LORD
 thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying,
13:13 [Certain] men, the children of Belial, have gone out from
 among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city,
 saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not
 known;
13:14 Then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask
 diligently; and behold, [if it is] truth, [and] the thing
 certain, [that] such abomination is wrought among you;
13:15 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with
 the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that [is]
 in it, and its cattle, with the edge of the sword.
13:16 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst
 of its street, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the
 spoil of it every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be a
 heap forever; it shalt not be built again.
13:17 And there shall cleave naught of the cursed thing to thy
 hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger,
 and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and
 multiply thee, as he hath sworn to thy fathers;
13:18 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God,
 to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to
 do [that which is] right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.
