 20:26
 20:27
20:26 You shall be holy to Me, for I, God, am holy, and I have separated you out from among the nations to be Mine.'
Veheyitem li kedoshim ki kadosh ani Adonay va'avdil etchem min-ha'amim liheyot li.
20:27 Any man or woman who is involved in [the practices of] the mediums or oracles shall be put to death. They shall be pelted to death with stones, and thus stoned to death.
Ve'ish o-ishah ki-yiheyeh vahem ov o yid'oni mot yumatu ba'even yirgemu otam dmeyhem bam.



Commentary:

mediums or oracles
  See Leviticus 19:31, 20:6.

stoned to death
  See note on Leviticus 20:9. If there are witnesses and the person is condemned, there is a death penalty. Otherwise, the penalty is being 'cut off' ( Leviticus 20:6; Rashi).
