Abominable Sacrifice - Deuteronomy 17

Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God  any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any  evil favouredness: for that is an abomination unto the  LORD thy God.  Deuteronomy 17:1 

Deuteronomy 17:2 If there be found among you, within any of thy  gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman,  that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy  God, in transgressing his covenant, 

Deuteronomy 17:3 And hath gone  and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun,  or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not  commanded; 

Deuteronomy 17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard  of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true,  and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought  in Israel: 

Deuteronomy 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that  woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy  gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them  with stones, till they die. 

Deuteronomy 17:6 At the mouth of two  witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of  death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he  shall not be put to death. 

Deuteronomy 17:7 The hands of the witnesses  shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward  the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away  from among you.  

Deuteronomy 17:8 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in  judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea,  and between stroke and stroke, being matters of  controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get  thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall  choose; 

Deuteronomy 17:9 And thou shalt come unto the priests the  Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and  enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:  

Deuteronomy 17:10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which  they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew  thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they  inform thee: 

Deuteronomy 17:11 According to the sentence of the law  which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment  which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not  decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to  the right hand, nor to the left. 

Deuteronomy 17:12 And the man that  will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest  that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or  unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put  away the evil from Israel. 

Deuteronomy 17:13 And all the people shall  hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.   

Deuteronomy 17:14 When thou art come unto the land which the  LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt  dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as  all the nations that are about me; 

Deuteronomy 17:15 Thou shalt in  any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy  God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou  set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee,  which is not thy brother. 

Deuteronomy 17:16 But he shall not multiply  horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to  the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the  LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no  more that way. 

Deuteronomy 17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to  himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly  multiply to himself silver and gold. 

Deuteronomy 17:18 And it shall be,  when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall  write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is  before the priests the Levites: 

Deuteronomy 17:19 And it shall be with  him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he  may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words  of this law and these statutes, to do them: 

Deuteronomy 17:20 That his  heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn  not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to  the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his  kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.  KJV
