    What does it mean to cast lots? How is it done?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Jonah 1
    "To divination and casting of lots, they pay attention beyond any other people. Their method of casting lots is a simple one: they cut a branch from a fruit-bearing tree and divide it into small pieces which they mark with certain distinctive signs and scatter at random onto a white cloth. Then, the priest of the community if the lots are consulted publicly, or the father of the family if it is done privately, after invoking the gods and with eyes raised to heaven, picks up three pieces, one at a time, and interprets them according to the signs previously marked upon them.

    Divination is OCCULT and carries a death sentence.

    Not sure but I think it goes like this: 10 sticks with only one differant color than the others, hold all in one hand with the colored stick in the middle, let go and the colored stick points to the person in a circle. He is chosen for what purpose, I dont know. for something they agreed to , I would guess.
