 20:1  20:2
20:2 say the following to the Israelites:

If any person, whether a [born] Israelite or a proselyte who joins Israel, gives any of his children to Molekh, he must be put to death. The local people must pelt him to death with stones.
Ve'el-beney Yisra'el tomar ish ish mibeney Yisra'el umin-hager hagar beYisra'el asher yiten mizar'o la-Molech mot yumat am ha'arets yirgemuhu va'aven.




Commentary:

pelt him to death...
  After trial by a duly ordained Sanhedrin. Since there is no such ordination today, death penalties are not imposed.
