Torah perpaetua 314 “Cleave nought of the devoted thing”

What GOD devotes to Himself is holy. What I devote to GOD does not become holy on the merit of my devotion nor sincerity. The road to hell is paved with sincerity, the saying goes. Might be true. If GOD has declared it unclean, you cannot wish it clean. "Cleave nought of the devoted thing."

Torah 314 1-26-2017 (11-27-6155)
Deuteronomy דְּבָרִים Chapter 13

יג כִּי-תִשְׁמַע בְּאַחַת עָרֶיךָ, אֲשֶׁר יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ נֹתֵן לְךָ לָשֶׁבֶת שָׁם–לֵאמֹר. 13
If thou shalt hear tell concerning one of thy cities, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to dwell there, saying:

יד יָצְאוּ אֲנָשִׁים בְּנֵי-בְלִיַּעַל, מִקִּרְבֶּךָ, וַיַּדִּיחוּ אֶת-יֹשְׁבֵי עִירָם, לֵאמֹר: נֵלְכָה, וְנַעַבְדָה אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים–אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יְדַעְתֶּם. 14
‘Certain base fellows are gone out from the midst of thee, and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying:
Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known’;

טו וְדָרַשְׁתָּ וְחָקַרְתָּ וְשָׁאַלְתָּ, הֵיטֵב; וְהִנֵּה אֱמֶת נָכוֹן הַדָּבָר, נֶעֶשְׂתָה הַתּוֹעֵבָה הַזֹּאת בְּקִרְבֶּךָ. 15
then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in the midst of thee;

טז הַכֵּה תַכֶּה, אֶת-יֹשְׁבֵי הָעִיר הַהִוא–לְפִי-חָרֶב: הַחֲרֵם אֹתָהּ וְאֶת-כָּל-אֲשֶׁר-בָּהּ וְאֶת-בְּהֶמְתָּהּ, לְפִי-חָרֶב. 16
thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.

יז וְאֶת-כָּל-שְׁלָלָהּ, תִּקְבֹּץ אֶל-תּוֹךְ רְחֹבָהּ, וְשָׂרַפְתָּ בָאֵשׁ אֶת-הָעִיר וְאֶת-כָּל-שְׁלָלָהּ כָּלִיל, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ; וְהָיְתָה תֵּל עוֹלָם, לֹא תִבָּנֶה עוֹד. 17
And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the broad place thereof, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, unto the LORD thy God; and it shall be a heap for ever; it shall not be built again.

יח וְלֹא-יִדְבַּק בְּיָדְךָ מְאוּמָה, מִן-הַחֵרֶם–לְמַעַן יָשׁוּב יְהוָה מֵחֲרוֹן אַפּוֹ, וְנָתַן-לְךָ רַחֲמִים וְרִחַמְךָ וְהִרְבֶּךָ, כַּאֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּע, לַאֲבֹתֶיךָ. 18
And there shall cleave nought of the devoted thing to thy hand, that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of His anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as He hath sworn unto thy fathers;

יט כִּי תִשְׁמַע, בְּקוֹל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, לִשְׁמֹר אֶת-כָּל-מִצְו‍ֹתָיו, אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי מְצַוְּךָ הַיּוֹם–לַעֲשׂוֹת, הַיָּשָׁר, בְּעֵינֵי, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ. {ס} 19
when thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all His commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God. {S}

Chapter 14

א בָּנִים אַתֶּם, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם: לֹא תִתְגֹּדְדוּ, וְלֹא-תָשִׂימוּ קָרְחָה בֵּין עֵינֵיכֶם–לָמֵת. 1
Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

ב כִּי עַם קָדוֹשׁ אַתָּה, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ; וּבְךָ בָּחַר יְהוָה, לִהְיוֹת לוֹ לְעַם סְגֻלָּה, מִכֹּל הָעַמִּים, אֲשֶׁר עַל-פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה. {ס} 2
For thou art a holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be His own treasure out of all peoples that are upon the face of the earth. {S}

ג לֹא תֹאכַל, כָּל-תּוֹעֵבָה. 3
Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.

ד זֹאת הַבְּהֵמָה, אֲשֶׁר תֹּאכֵלוּ: שׁוֹר, שֵׂה כְשָׂבִים וְשֵׂה עִזִּים. 4
These are the beasts which ye may eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,

ה אַיָּל וּצְבִי, וְיַחְמוּר; וְאַקּוֹ וְדִישֹׁן, וּתְאוֹ וָזָמֶר. 5
the hart, and the gazelle, and the roebuck, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the antelope, and the mountain-sheep.

ו וְכָל-בְּהֵמָה מַפְרֶסֶת פַּרְסָה, וְשֹׁסַעַת שֶׁסַע שְׁתֵּי פְרָסוֹת, מַעֲלַת גֵּרָה, בַּבְּהֵמָה–אֹתָהּ, תֹּאכֵלוּ. 6
And every beast that parteth the hoof, and hath the hoof wholly cloven in two, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that ye may eat.

ז אַךְ אֶת-זֶה לֹא תֹאכְלוּ, מִמַּעֲלֵי הַגֵּרָה, וּמִמַּפְרִיסֵי הַפַּרְסָה, הַשְּׁסוּעָה: אֶת-הַגָּמָל וְאֶת-הָאַרְנֶבֶת וְאֶת-הַשָּׁפָן כִּי-מַעֲלֵה גֵרָה הֵמָּה, וּפַרְסָה לֹא הִפְרִיסוּ–טְמֵאִים הֵם, לָכֶם. 7 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that only chew the cud, or of them that only have the hoof cloven:
the camel, and the hare, and the rock-badger, because they chew the cud but part not the hoof, they are unclean unto you;

ח וְאֶת-הַחֲזִיר כִּי-מַפְרִיס פַּרְסָה הוּא, וְלֹא גֵרָה–טָמֵא הוּא, לָכֶם; מִבְּשָׂרָם לֹא תֹאכֵלוּ, וּבְנִבְלָתָם לֹא תִגָּעוּ. {ס} 8
and the swine, because he parteth the hoof but cheweth not the cud, he is unclean unto you; of their flesh ye shall not eat, and their carcasses ye shall not touch. {S}

ט אֶת-זֶה, תֹּאכְלוּ, מִכֹּל, אֲשֶׁר בַּמָּיִם: כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת, תֹּאכֵלוּ. 9
These ye may eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales may ye eat;

י וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר אֵין-לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת, לֹא תֹאכֵלוּ–טָמֵא הוּא, לָכֶם. {ס} 10
and whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye shall not eat; it is unclean unto you. {S}
