Deuteronomy 18:15-20

CEB 15 The LORD your God will raise up a prophet like me from your community, from your fellow Israelites. He's the one you must listen to. NRS 15 The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you shall heed such a prophet. CEB 16 That's exactly what you requested from the LORD your God at Horeb, on the day of the assembly, when you said, "I can't listen to the LORD my God's voice anymore or look at this great fire any longer. I don't want to die!" NRS 16 This is what you requested of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: "If I hear the voice of the Lord my God any more, or ever again see this great fire, I will die." CEB 17 The LORD said to me: What they've said is right. NRS 17 Then the Lord replied to me: "They are right in what they have said. CEB 18 I'll raise up a prophet for them from among their fellow Israelites—one just like you. I'll put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. NRS 18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet, who shall speak to them everything that I command. CEB 19 I myself will hold accountable anyone who doesn't listen to my words, which that prophet will speak in my name. NRS 19 Anyone who does not heed the words that the prophet shall speak in my name, I myself will hold accountable. CEB 20 However, any prophet who arrogantly speaks a word in my name that I haven't commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods—that prophet must die. NRS 20 But any prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, or who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded the prophet to speak—that prophet shall die."
