What does Deuteronomy 13:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Deuteronomy 13:10

And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die
It was not sufficient to answer the end of the law to cast a few stones at him, but he was to be stoned to death:

because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the Lord thy God;
to compel by force of argument, or the dint of persuasion, to relinquish the profession of the true God, faith in him, and the worship of him:

which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
which aggravated the sin of the enticer, and would have made the sin of the enticed the more heinous had he fallen into it.
