We are not to consult with fortune tellers, or to dabble in witchcraft.
Exodus 22:18 "Thou shall not suffer a witch to live."
Leviticus 19:26 "Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood:
neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times."
Leviticus 20:6 "And the soul that turns after such as have
familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even
set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his
Leviticus 20:27 "A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit,
or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with
stones: their blood shall be upon them."
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 "There shall not be found among you any one
that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses
divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a
charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD:"
Isaiah 8:1-22 "Moreover the LORD said unto me, Take thee a great
roll, and write in it with a man's pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz. And I
took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the
son of Jeberechiah. And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and
bare a son. Then said the LORD to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz. For
before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the
riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the
king of Assyria. The LORD spake also unto me again, saying, Forasmuch as this
people refuseth the waters of Shiloah that go softly, and rejoice in Rezin and
Remaliah's son; Now therefore, behold, the Lord bringeth up upon them the
waters of the river, strong and many, even the king of Assyria, and all his
glory: and he shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks:
And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach
even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth
of thy land, O Immanuel. Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be
broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and
ye shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in
pieces. Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word,
and it shall not stand: for God is with us. For the LORD spake thus to me with
a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this
people, saying, Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people
shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify
the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your
dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a
rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the
inhabitants of Jerusalem. And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be
broken, and be snared, and be taken. Bind up the testimony, seal the law among
my disciples. And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the
house of Jacob, and I will look for him. Behold, I and the children whom the
LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of
hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. And when they shall say unto you, Seek
unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that
mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it
is because there is no light in them. And they shall pass through it, hardly
bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry,
they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look
upward. And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness,
dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness."
