Deuteronomy 13

BBE 1 If ever you have among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign or a wonder, NIV 1 If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, BBE 2 And the sign or the wonder takes place, and he says to you, Let us go after other gods, which are strange to you, and give them worship; NIV 2 and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” BBE 3 Then give no attention to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God is testing you, to see if all the love of your heart and soul is given to him. NIV 3 you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. BBE 4 But keep on in the ways of the Lord your God, fearing him and keeping his orders and hearing his voice, worshipping him and being true to him. NIV 4 It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. BBE 5 And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams is to be put to death; for his words were said with the purpose of turning you away from the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt and made you free from the prison-house; and of forcing you out of the way in which the Lord your God has given you orders to go. So you are to put away the evil from among you. NIV 5 That prophet or dreamer must be put to death for inciting rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery. That prophet or dreamer tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you. BBE 6 If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter or the wife of your heart, or the friend who is as dear to you as your life, working on you secretly says to you, Let us go and give worship to other gods, strange to you and to your fathers; NIV 6 If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, BBE 7 Gods of the peoples round about you, near or far, from one end of the earth to the other; NIV 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), BBE 8 Do not be guided by him or give attention to him; have no pity on him or mercy, and give him no cover; NIV 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. BBE 9 But put him to death without question; let your hand be the first stretched out against him to put him to death, and then the hands of all the people. NIV 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. BBE 10 Let him be stoned with stones till he is dead; because it was his purpose to make you false to the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house. NIV 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. BBE 11 And all Israel, hearing of it, will be full of fear, and no one will again do such evil as this among you. NIV 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again. BBE 12 And if word comes to you, in one of the towns which the Lord your God is giving you for your resting-place, NIV 12 If you hear it said about one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you to live in BBE 13 That good-for-nothing persons have gone out from among you, turning the people of their town from the right way and saying, Let us go and give worship to other gods, of whom you have no knowledge; NIV 13 that troublemakers have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods you have not known), BBE 14 Then let a full search be made, and let questions be put with care; and if it is true and certain that such a disgusting thing has been done among you; NIV 14 then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, BBE 15 Then take up arms against the people of that town and give it up to the curse, with all its cattle and everything in it. NIV 15 you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock. BBE 16 And take all the goods into the middle of its open space, burning the town and all its property with fire as an offering to the Lord your God; it is to be a waste for ever; there is to be no more building there. NIV 16 You are to gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt, BBE 17 Keep not a thing of what is cursed for yourselves: so the Lord may be turned away from the heat of his wrath, and have mercy on you, and give you increase as he said in his oath to your fathers: NIV 17 and none of the condemned things are to be found in your hands. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger, will show you mercy, and will have compassion on you. He will increase your numbers, as he promised on oath to your ancestors— BBE 18 So long as you give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and keep all his orders which I give you today, and do what is right in the eyes of the Lord your God. NIV 18 because you obey the LORD your God by keeping all his commands that I am giving you today and doing what is right in his eyes.
