No Fortune Tellers


10 Neither let there be found among you any one that shall expiate his son or daughter, making them to pass through the fire: or that consulteth soothsayers, or observeth dreams and omens. Neither let there be any wizard, 11 Nor charmer, nor any one that consulteth pythonic spirits, or fortune tellers: or that seeketh the truth from the dead. 12 For the Lord abhorreth all these things: and for these abominations he will destroy them at thy coming.


3 Saying: Hurt not the earth nor the sea nor the trees, till we sign the servants of our God in their foreheads.

(At confirmation, Catholics are sealed with the cross on their foreheads. They alone can be servants of God.)


9 For if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thy heart that God hath raised him up from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Ver. 9. Thou shalt be saved. To confess the Lord Jesus, and to call upon the name of the Lord (ver. 13) is not barely the professing a belief in the person of Christ; but moreover, implies a belief of his whole doctrine and an obedience to his law; without which, the calling him Lord will save no man (Matt. 7, 21).
