 20:22
 20:23
20:22 Safeguard all My decrees and laws and keep them, so that the land to which I am bringing you to settle will not vomit you out.
Ushmartem et-kol-chukotay ve'et-kol-mishpatay va'asitem otam velo taki etchem ha'arets asher ani mevi etchem shamah lashevet bah.
20:23 Seventh Reading
Do not follow the customs of the nation that I am driving out before you, since they did all the above mentioned [perversions] and I was disgusted with them.
Velo telchu bechukot hagoy asher-ani meshale'ach mipneychem ki et-kol-eleh asu va'akuts bam.



Commentary:

Do not follow the customs
  This is a specific commandment not to follow gentile customs (Sefer HaMitzvoth, Negative 30). See Leviticus 18:3.
