34. Hulle het die volke nie verdelg soos die Here aan hulle gesê het nie,
35. Maar hulle het met die heidene vermeng en hulle werke geleer.

37. Bowendien het hulle hul seuns en hul dogters aan die duiwels geoffer -
38. En onskuldige bloed vergiet - die bloed van hul seuns en hul dogters wat hulle aan die afgode van Kanaän geoffer het - sodat die land deur bloedskuld ontheilig is.  
39. En hulle het onrein geword deur hul werke, en gehoereer deur hul dade.
