13:1 (13:2) If there arise among you a Navi, or a chalam (dreamer) of chalom (dreams), and gives you a ot (sign) or a mofet (wonder),
13:2 (13:3) And the ot or the mofet come to pass, whereof he spake to you, saying, Let us go after other gods, which you have not known, and let us serve them;
13:3 (13:4)you shall not shema to the devarim of that Navi, or that dreamer of dreams: for ADONAI(יהוה) Eloheichem proveth you, to know whether you ahav ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheichem with all your lev and with all your nefesh.
13:4 (13:5)Ye shall halak after ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheichem, and yare (fear) Him, and shomer His mitzvot, and shama (obey) His voice, and you shall serve Him, and dabak (follow closely cleave) to Him.
13:5 (13:6)And that Navi, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn [you] away from ADONAI(יהוה) Eloheichem, which brought you out of the eretz Mitzrayim, and redeemed you out of the bayit of bondage, to thrust you out of the way which ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheicha commanded you to halak in. So shall you put the evil away from the midst of you.
13:6 (13:7)If achicha (thy brother), son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend, which [is] as your own nefesh, entice you secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known, you, nor your avot;
13:7 (13:8)[Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about you, nigh to you, or far off from you, from the [one] end of the earth even to the [other] end of the earth;
13:8 (13:9)you shall not consent to him, nor shema to him; neither shall your eye pity him, neither shall you spare, neither shall you conceal him:
13:9 (13:10)But you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
13:10 (13:11)And you shall stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust you away from ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheicha, which brought you out of the eretz Mitzrayim, from the bayit of bondage.
13:11 (13:12)And all Yisra'el shall Shema, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.
13:12 (13:13) If you shall Shema [say] in one of your cities, which ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheicha hath given you to dwell there, saying,
13:13 (13:14)[Certain] men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known;
13:14 (13:15) Then shall you enquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, [if it be] truth, [and] the thing certain, [that] such to'avat (abomination) is wrought among you;
13:15 (13:16)You shall surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that [is] therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
13:16 (13:17)And you shall gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheicha: and it shall be an heap forever; it shall not be built again.
13:17 (13:18) And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to your hand: that ADONAI (יהוה) may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and show you mercy, and have compassion upon you, and multiply you, as He hath sworn to your avot;
13:18 (13:19)When you shall shema to the voice of ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheicha, to shomer all His mitzvot which I command you this day, to do [that which is] right in the eyes of ADONAI (יהוה) Eloheicha.
