Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
There shall not be found among you anyone
who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11
or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12
For all who do these things are
an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)
