Open par. 268.1 ~ If your brother... entice you
5272 to 5277 From creation | 1511 to 1517 B.C.E
13:7If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, that 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; 8of the gods of the peoples that 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; 9thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him; 10but thou shalt surely kill him; thy hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. 11And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to draw thee away from the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 12And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is in the midst of thee.
