NASB — Deuteronomy 13 — KJV

Shun Idolatry

1IaIf a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘aLet us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ 3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is atesting you to find out if byou love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 aYou shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and bcling to Him. 5 But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be aput to death, because he has Icounseled IIrebellion against the LORD your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of IIIslavery, bto seduce you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. cSo you shall purge the evil from among you.

Enticers to idolatry,

1 ¶ If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. 5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn [you] away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.
