I recently read a reference to Donald Bretherton's suggestion that Exodus 22:17
מְכַשֵּׁפָה לֹא תְחַיֶּה
MK$PH L) TXYH
"A woman practicing magic must not restore to life any dead person or beast: she will surely be put to death."
While I can see a few variations on "Do not allow a sorceress (or necromancer) to live, I can't see how this translation makes sense.
Am I missing something?
