Do not mess about with "soothsayers, mediums and people who talk to the dead. You must be wholehearted", or in Hebrew, tamim yihyeh, "with the Eternal your God". The image of the tam is known to us from the Seder, the simple child. Yet tam in Torah is not as simple as we think. Two individuals are specifically called tam. The first is Jacob, ish tam, a man who is tam.
