Deuteronomy 13
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1"And when a Prophet or dreamer of dreams shall rise among you and he will give you a sign or a wonder. 2And there shall be a sign or a wonder that he spoke to you and he will say to you, 'Come, let us go after other gods that you do not know and let us serve them'; 3You shall not listen to the words of that Prophet or one dreaming that dream because certainly LORD JEHOVAH your God is testing you to know if you love LORD JEHOVAH your God from all your heart and from all your soul. 4Go after LORD JEHOVAH your God and stand in awe of him and keep his commandments and listen to him and serve him and cling to Him. 5And that Prophet or dreamer of dreams shall be killed because he spoke evil before LORD JEHOVAH your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt and saved you from the house of bondage, that he would seduce you from the way in which LORD JEHOVAH your God commanded you to go, and root out evil from within you.

6And if your brother, son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your covenant, or your friend who is like your soul, will provoke you in secret and will say to you: “Come, let us go, let us serve other gods that you have not known, you and your fathers; 7From gods of the Gentiles that are around you who are near to you or who are far off from you, from the ends of the land and unto the ends of the earth”; 8Do not be persuaded by him and do not listen to him and your eye shall not have pity upon him and do not be merciful and do not conceal him. 9But certainly kill him; your hand shall begin with him first to kill him and the hand of all the people at the end. 10And stone him with stones and he shall die because he sought to seduce you from LORD JEHOVAH your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt from the house of bondage. 11And all of the house of Israel shall hear and shall be afraid and shall not again do according to this evil matter in your midst.

12And when you will hear in one of your cities that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives you in which to dwell, and they will say to you. 13Men, sons of sin, went out from within you and they have led astray the people of their city and they said, ‘Let us go; let us serve other gods that you do not know’; 14Seek and search and inquire well if this is truly the case and this impurity was done among you; 15Cut off the inhabitants of that city by the mouth of the sword; destroy it and everyone who is in it and its livestock by the mouth of the sword. 16And gather all its plundered property within its open courtyard and burn the city in fire and all its property completely before LORD JEHOVAH your God, and it shall be a heap forever and it shall not be built again. 17And nothing of the cursed place shall stick to your hand, so that LORD JEHOVAH may turn from the heat of his wrath and he will give mercy to you and he will have mercy upon you and he will show compassion to you and he will multiply you as He swore to your forefathers; 18If you will hear the voice of LORD JEHOVAH your God and you will keep his commandments that I command you today, and you will do what is good before LORD JEHOVAH your God.”
