1. The LORD said to Moses,
2. “Say to the Israelites: ‘Any Israelite or any alien living in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech must be put to death. The people of the community are to stone him.
3. I myself will set my face against that man and I will cut him off from his people; for by giving his children to Molech, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name.
4. If the members of the community close their eyes when that man gives one of his children to Molech and they fail to put him to death,
5. I myself will set my face against that man and his family and will cut off from their people both him and all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molech.
6. ” ‘I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people.
7. ” ‘Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the LORD your God.
8. Keep my decrees and follow them. I am the LORD, who makes you holy.
