Leviticus 20:6 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)
(6) And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits.—The same punishment will be visited upon the man who consults necromancers. For the nature of this sin, see Lev. 19:31, and for the execution of this sentence see 1Ch. 10:13-14. The soothsayers themselves were stoned to death by the community. (See Lev. 20:27.)
