Deuteronomy 18

The LORD is the priests' and Levites' inheritance.

Deuteronomy 18:1 The priests, the Levites, [and] the whole tribe of Levi, shall have no portion nor inheritance with Israel: Jehovah's offerings by fire, and his inheritance shall they eat, Deuteronomy 18:2 but they shall have no inheritance among their brethren: Jehovah, he is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.

The priest's due.

Deuteronomy 18:3 And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that sacrifice a sacrifice, whether ox, or sheep: they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the jawbones, and the maw. Deuteronomy 18:4 The firstfruits [also] of thy corn, of thy new wine, and of thine oil, and the firstfruits of the shearing of thy sheep, shalt thou give him; Deuteronomy 18:5 for Jehovah thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, that he may stand to serve in the name of Jehovah, he and his sons continually.

The Levite's portion.

Deuteronomy 18:6 And if the Levite shall come from one of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourneth, and shall come according to all the desire of his soul unto the place which Jehovah will choose, Deuteronomy 18:7 and shall serve in the name of Jehovah his God, as all his brethren the Levites that stand there before Jehovah, Deuteronomy 18:8 —they shall have like portions to eat, besides that which he hath sold of his patrimony.

The abominations of the nations are to be avoided.

Deuteronomy 18:9 When thou art come into the land which Jehovah thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do according to the abominations of those nations. Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you he that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, that useth divination, that useth auguries, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer, Deuteronomy 18:11 or a charmer, or one that inquireth of a spirit of Python, or a soothsayer, or one that consulteth the dead. Deuteronomy 18:12 For every one that doeth these things is an abomination to Jehovah, and because of these abominations Jehovah thy God doth dispossess them from before thee. Deuteronomy 18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with Jehovah thy God. Deuteronomy 18:14 For these nations, which thou shalt dispossess, hearkened unto those that use auguries, and that use divination; but as for thee, Jehovah thy God hath not suffered thee [to do] so.

Christ the Prophet is to be heard.

Deuteronomy 18:15 Jehovah thy God will raise up unto thee a prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him shall ye hearken; Deuteronomy 18:16 according to all that thou desiredst of Jehovah thy God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of Jehovah my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. Deuteronomy 18:17 And Jehovah said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. Deuteronomy 18:18 A prophet will I raise up unto them from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. Deuteronomy 18:19 And it shall come to pass that the man who hearkeneth not unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

The presumptuous prophet is to die.

Deuteronomy 18:20 But the prophet who shall presume to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die. Deuteronomy 18:21 And if thou say in thy heart, How shall we know the word that Jehovah hath not spoken? Deuteronomy 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of Jehovah, and the thing followeth not, nor cometh to pass, that is the word which Jehovah hath not spoken; the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: be not afraid of him.
