Deuteronomy 13

NLT 1 “Suppose there are prophets among you or those who dream dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles, NIV 1 If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, NLT 2 and the predicted signs or miracles occur. If they then say, ‘Come, let us worship other gods’—gods you have not known before— 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,” NLT 3 do not listen to them. The LORD your God is testing you to see if you truly love him with all your heart and soul. 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. NLT 4 Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling 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. NLT 5 The false prophets or visionaries who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the LORD your God, who redeemed you from slavery and brought you out of the land of Egypt. Since they try to lead you astray from the way the LORD your God commanded you to live, you must put them to death. In this way you will purge 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. NLT 6 “Suppose someone secretly entices you—even your brother, your son or daughter, your beloved wife, or your closest friend—and says, ‘Let us go worship other gods’—gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known. 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, NLT 7 They might suggest that you worship the gods of peoples who live nearby or who come from the ends of the earth. NIV 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), NLT 8 But do not give in or listen. Have no pity, and do not spare or protect them. NIV 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. NLT 9 You must put them to death! Strike the first blow yourself, and then all the people must join in. 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. NLT 10 Stone the guilty ones to death because they have tried to draw you away from the LORD your God, who rescued you from the land of Egypt, the place of slavery. 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. NLT 11 Then all Israel will hear about it and be afraid, and no one will act so wickedly again. NIV 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again. NLT 12 “When you begin living in the towns the LORD your God is giving you, you may hear NIV 12 If you hear it said about one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you to live in NLT 13 that scoundrels among you are leading their fellow citizens astray by saying, ‘Let us go worship other gods’—gods you have not known before. 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), NLT 14 In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find that the report is true and such a detestable act has been committed 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, NLT 15 you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. 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. NLT 16 Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the open square and burn it. Burn the entire town as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. 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, NLT 17 Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a large nation, just as he swore to your ancestors. 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— NLT 18 “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you listen to his voice and keep all his commands that I am giving you today, doing what pleases him. 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.
