Spiritism Forbidden

9 "When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to a1imitate the detestable things of those nations. 10 "There shall not be found among you anyone 2who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one 3who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, 4or a medium , or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 "For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and 5because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you. 13 "6You shall be bblameless before the LORD your God. 14 "For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who 7practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do so. 15 "8The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your ccountrymen, you shall listen to him. 16 "This is 9according to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, 'Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die.' 17 "10The LORD said to me, 'They have dspoken well. 18 'I will raise up a prophet from among their ecountrymen like you, and 11I will put My words in his mouth, and 12he shall speak to them all that I command him. 19 '13It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him. 20 'But the prophet who speaks a word 14presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or 15which he speaks in the name of other gods, fthat prophet shall die.' 21 "gYou may say in your heart, 'How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?' 22 "16When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it 17presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.
