Punishment for Child Sacrifice
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
a "Again, you shall say to the children of Israel: b 'Whoever of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who 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.
d 'I will set My face against that man, and will 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.
'And if the people of the land should in any way hide their eyes from the man, when he gives some of his descendants to Molech, and they do not kill him,
'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.
'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.
f 'Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am the LORD your God.
'And you shall keep g My statutes, and perform them: h I am the LORD who sanctifies you.
'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.
