||[This is what you must do] if your blood brother, your son, your daughter, your bosom wife, or your closest friend secretly tries to act as a missionary among you, and says, 'Let us go worship a new god. Let us have a spiritual experience previously unknown by you or your fathers.'
Ki yesitcha achicha ven-imecha o-vincha o-vitcha o eshet cheykecha o re'acha asher kenafshecha baseter lemor nelchah vena'avdah elohim acherim asher lo yadata atah va'avoteycha.
Literally, 'your brother, son of your mother.'
Literally, 'your friend, who is like yourself.'
|to act as a missionary|
(Radak, Sherashim; Sifri, from 1 Samuel 26:19). Sith in Hebrew, and one who does it is called a mesith. Or, 'try to convince' (Targum; Ibn Janach; Septuagint), 'try to mislead' (Targum Yonathan; Sifri), or, 'give bad advice' (Rashbam).
|Let us have a spiritual experience|
See note on Deuteronomy 11:28.
