22 'You shall therefore keep all My w statutes and all My judgments, and perform them, that the land where I am bringing you to dwell x may not vomit you out. 23 y 'And you shall not walk in the statutes of the nation which I am casting out before you; for they commit all these things, and z therefore I abhor them. 24 'But a I have said to you, "You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey." I am the LORD your God, b who has separated you from the peoples. 25 c 'You shall therefore distinguish between clean animals and unclean, between unclean birds and clean, d and you shall not make yourselves 1 abominable by beast or by bird, or by any kind of living thing that creeps on the ground, which I have separated from you as 2 unclean. 26 'And you shall be holy to Me, e for I the LORD am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.
27 f 'A man or a woman who is a medium, or who has familiar spirits, shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be upon them.' "New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
