You shall ewalk 1after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and fhold fast to Him. But gthat prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has spoken in order to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of bondage, to entice you from the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk. hSo you shall 2put away the evil from your midst.
