Israel was different from other nations. They lived under the promise of a Savior, so they were to act differently too.

KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 20

     1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not: 5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people. 6 And the soul that turneth 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 people. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God. 8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD which sanctify you. 9 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

     10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. 11 And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. 12 And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them. 13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 412:
May We Thy Precepts, Lord, Fulfill

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. May we Thy precepts, Lord, fulfil 
And do on earth our Father’s will 
As angels do above; 
Still walk in Christ, the living Way, 
With all Thy children and obey 
The law of Christian love. 

2. So may we join Thy name to bless, 
Thy grace adore, Thy power confess, 
From sin and strife to flee. 
One is our calling, one our name, 
The end of all our hopes the same, 
A crown of life with Thee. 

3. Spirit of Life, of Love, and Peace, 
Unite our hearts, our joy increase, 
Thy gracious help supply. 
To each of us the blessing give 
In Christian fellowship to live, 
In joyful hope to die.
