Deuteronomy 17:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

and if you are told or hear of it, you must investigate it thoroughly. If the truth of the matter is established that this abomination has been committed in Israel, you shall bring the man or the woman who has done this evil deed out to your gates[a] and stone the man or the woman to death. Only on the testimony of two or three witnesses shall a person be put to death; no one shall be put to death on the testimony of only one witness.
