“A man or a woman who is a medium or who has a familiar spirit must be put to death, yes, death; they are to stone them with stones. Their blood will be upon them.” Bible

“who has a familiar spirit.” See commentary on Deuteronomy 18:11.

“death, yes, death.” The Hebrew text repeats the verb for “put to death” twice, thus using the figure of speech polyptoton for emphasis. [For more on polyptoton and the way it is translated, see commentary on Gen. 2:16].
