Deuteronomy 13

Kill dreamers and prophets whose signs and wonders come true
13:1-5

13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,

Moses continues his instructions to the Israelites, saying,
If there is a prophet or dreamer among you who gives you a sign or a wonder,

13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;

And that sign or wonder comes to pass,

and he asks you to follow other gods which you haven't known,

13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Don't listen to him.

God has sent him to test you to see whether you love him. [1]

13:5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.

And you must kill that prophet or dreamer. [2]
Kill your family and friends if they try to change your religious beliefs
13:6-11

13:6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;

13:7 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;

If your brother, son, daughter, wife, or friend asks you to serve another god, one which you haven't known,

13:8 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:

Don't agree with him,

Or pity, or spare, or conceal him.

13:9 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.

Rather, you must kill him. [3]

Your hand must be the first to strike him, and then the rest of the people.

13:10 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

You must stone him with stones until he is dead.

13:11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.

So that everyone will hear and fear, and there will be no more wickedness among you.
If a city has people who believe in other gods, kill everyone in that city
13:12-18

13:12 If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities, which the LORD thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying,

13:13 Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known;

13:14 Then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you;

If you hear of a city where people say, "Let's serve other gods", gods that you haven't known, investigate to see if it is true.

13:15 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.

If you find that it is true, kill everyone in the city (even the cattle) and burn it down. [4]

13:16 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again.

13:17 And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;

13:18 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.

By so doing, God's fierce anger will turn away from you and he will be merciful to you. [5]
