Bible: Lev 20:1-5

Prohibitions against Illegitimate Family Worship

20:1 The Lord spoke to Moses: 20:2 You are to say to the Israelites, ‘Any man from the Israelites or from the foreigners who reside in Israel 1  who gives any of his children 2  to Molech 3  must be put to death; the people of the land must pelt him with stones. 4  20:3 I myself will set my face 5  against that man and cut him off from the midst of his people, 6  because he has given some of his children to Molech and thereby defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. 7  20:4 If, however, the people of the land shut their eyes 8  to that man 9  when he gives some of his children to Molech so that they do not put him to death, 20:5 I myself will set my face against that man and his clan. I will cut off from the midst of their people both him and all who follow after him in spiritual prostitution, 10  to commit prostitution by worshiping Molech. 11
