** Also mentioned is the propensity for certain religions of the peoples they were displacing and the ones of the neighboring peoples to have this, and also for the Israelites to keep picking it up themselves, much to God's displeasure.

'''Note:''' Be careful when sacrificing someone to summon and make a DealWithTheDevil: It's [[Manga/BlackButler not unheard of]] for the ''victim'' to get to make a deal instead of you... Also, technically it's only a sacrifice if you are killing your own people in such a fashion. Killing captured enemies of wayward travelers is instead an offering. This distinction is rarely important, however.
