You must keep all my rules and all my regulations, and do them so that the land I am bringing you to, where you will live, won't vomit you out.
You must not follow the practicesa of the nations that I am throwing out before you, because they did all these things and I was disgusted with them.
But I have told you, "You will certainly possess their fertile land; I am giving it to you to possess. It is a land full of milk and honey." I am the LORD your God, who has separated you from all other peoples.
So you must separate between clean and unclean animals, and between clean and unclean birds. Do not become detestable through some animal, bird, or anything that moves on the fertile ground that I have separated from you as unclean.
You must be holy to me, because I the LORD am holy, and I have separated you from all other peoples to be my own.
If someone, whether male or female, is a medium with the dead or a diviner,b they must be executed. They will be stoned; their blood is on their own head.
