  • In drawing lots--like in a throw of the dice--you let fate decide what action you take in a certain situation. It was the drawing of lots that decided which of the Roman soldiers got Jesus' personal clothing and effects. Israelite priests used lots to figure out what action god wanted them to take in religious matters like in how many of the captured virgins god would get and how many the Israelite soldiers would get for sexual slaves and so on. You know. Divination!

  • When they chose the new 12th disciple they cast lots as well. I wouldnt call it divination but a way to make a decision.
    Do you remember as a child deciding who was it and you put out your fists and sang Eeny, meeny, miny, moe,Catch a tiger by the toe. If he hollers let him go, My mother says to pick the very best one, And you are it ? Well same thing just with fists instead of straws or sticks :-)
