1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 a "Again, you shall say to the children of Israel: b 'Whoever of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who 1 dwell in Israel, who gives any of his descendants to Molech, he shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall c stone him with stones. 3 d 'I will set My face against that man, and will 2 cut him off from his people, because he has given some of his descendants to Molech, to defile My sanctuary and profane My holy name. 4 'And if the people of the land should in any way 3 hide their eyes from the man, when he gives some of his descendants to Molech, and they do not kill him, 5 'then I will set My face against that man and against his family; and I will cut him off from his people, and all who prostitute themselves with him to commit harlotry with Molech.
6 'And e the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people. 7 f 'Consecrate 4 yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am the LORD your God. 8 'And you shall keep g My statutes, and perform them: h I am the LORD who 5 sanctifies you. 9 'For i everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. j His blood shall be upon him.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
