10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter (A)pass[a] through the fire, (B)or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 (C)or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or (D)one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are [b]an abomination to the Lord, and (E)because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. 13 You shall be [c]blameless before the Lord your God. 14 For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the Lord your God has not [d]appointed such for you.
