Leviticus 19:25-27 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

25 Not until the fifth year may you eat its fruit, to increase the yield for you. I, the Lord, am your God.

26 Do not eat anything with the blood still in it. Do not recite charms or practice soothsaying.[a] 27 Do not clip your hair at the temples, nor spoil the edges of your beard.

Footnotes:

  1. 19:26 Recite charms…soothsaying: methods of divination (cf. Gn 44:5, 15; Is 2:6; Ez 21:26–28). Legitimate means of learning the future or God’s will were through the Urim and Thummim stones (see Lv 8:8), lots (see Lv 16:8) and prophets (cf. Dt 18:9–22; 1 Sm 28:6–7).
