Punishments for Sin

1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Say to the Israelites: 'Any Israelite or any alien living in Israel who givesa any of his children to Molech must be put to death.1 The people of the community are to stone him.2 3 I will set my face against that man and I will cut him off from his people;3 for by giving his children to Molech, he has defiled4 my sanctuary5 and profaned my holy name.6 4 If the people of the community close their eyes when that man gives one of his children to Molech and they fail to put him to death,7 5 I will set my face against that man and his family and will cut off from their people both him and all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molech. 6 " 'I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people.8 7 " 'Consecrate yourselves9 and be holy,10 because I am the LORD your God.11 8 Keep my decrees12 and follow them. I am the LORD, who makes you holy.b13 9 " 'If anyone curses his father14 or mother,15 he must be put to death.16 He has cursed his father or his mother, and his blood will be on his own head.17 10 " 'If a man commits adultery with another man's wife18--with the wife of his neighbor--both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.19 11 " 'If a man sleeps with his father's wife, he has dishonored his father.20 Both the man and the woman must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.21
