36 - CONSULTING A NECROMANCER WHO USES THE OB
Deuteronomy 18:10 -- “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”
If one consults a necromancer who uses the ob and regulates his conduct according to his instructions, he is liable to whipping by Scriptural law.* This applies also to the following commandment.
