Deuteronomy 13

NCV 1 Prophets or those who tell the future with dreams might come to you and say they will show you a miracle or a sign. NIV 1 If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, NCV 2 The miracle or sign might even happen, and then they might say, "Let's serve other gods" (gods you have not known) "and let's worship them." 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,” NCV 3 But you must not listen to those prophets or dreamers. The Lord your God is testing you, to find out if you love him with your whole being. 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. NCV 4 Serve only the Lord your God. Respect him, keep his commands, and obey him. Serve him and be loyal 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. NCV 5 The prophets or dreamers must be killed, because they said you should turn against the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt and saved you from the land where you were slaves. They tried to turn you from doing what the Lord your God commanded you to do. You must get rid of the evil 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. NCV 6 Someone might try to lead you to serve other gods -- it might be your brother, your son or daughter, the wife you love, or a close friend. The person might say, "Let's go and worship other gods." (These are 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, NCV 7 gods of the people who live around you, either nearby or far away, from one end of the land to the other.) NIV 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), NCV 8 Do not give in to such people. Do not listen or feel sorry for them, and do not let them go free 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. NCV 9 You must put them to death. You must be the first one to start to kill them, and then everyone else 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. NCV 10 You must throw stones at them until they die, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, where you were slaves. 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. NCV 11 Then everyone in Israel will hear about this and be afraid, and no one among you will ever do such an evil thing again. NIV 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again. NCV 12 The Lord your God is giving you cities in which to live, and you might hear something about one of them. Someone might say NIV 12 If you hear it said about one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you to live in NCV 13 that evil people have moved in among you. And they might lead the people of that city away from God, saying, "Let's go and worship other gods." (These are gods you have not known.) 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), NCV 14 Then you must ask about it, looking into the matter and checking carefully whether it is true. If it is proved that a hateful thing has happened 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, NCV 15 you must kill with a sword everyone who lives in that city. Destroy the city completely and kill everyone in it, as well as the animals, with a sword. 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. NCV 16 Gather up everything those people owned, and put it in the middle of the city square. Then completely burn the city and everything they owned as a burnt offering to the Lord your God. That city should never be rebuilt; let it be ruined forever. 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, NCV 17 Don't keep for yourselves any of the things found in that city, so the Lord will not be angry anymore. He will give you mercy and feel sorry for you, and he will make your nation grow larger, as he promised 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— NCV 18 You will have obeyed the Lord your God by keeping all his commands that I am giving to you today, and you will be doing what the Lord says is right. 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.
