Does the Jewish Tanakh or the Christian Old Testament forbid the use of witchcraft or just some forms? If you grew up a Christian it is likely you were taught that witchcraft was totally forbidden. However, there is no agreed on translation of terms used in the context of the time the Bible was written. Scholars suggest that what was being referred to was the magic practices of the surrounding peoples. The Israelites did employ divination techniques such as the Urim and Thummim with God’s explicit approval. So magic was approved of as long as it was not the magic of their neighbours.
