I will destroy your witchcraft and you will no longer cast spells.
"I will cut off sorceries from your hand, And you will have fortune-tellers no more.
I will put an end to all witchcraft; there will be no more fortune–tellers to consult.
I'll abolish your religious black markets, your underworld traffic in black magic.
I will put an end to your use of secret arts, and you will have no more readers of signs:
and I will cut off sorceries from your hand, and you shall have no more soothsayers;
I will cut off sorceries from your hand, And you shall have no soothsayers.
