There shall not be found among you any one who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, any one who practices divination, a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer,
or a charmer, or a medium, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
For whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD; and because of these abominable practices the LORD your God is driving them out before you.
You shall be blameless before the LORD your God.
For these nations, which you are about to dispossess, give heed to soothsayers and to diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you so to do.
"The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brethren--him you shall heed--
just as you desired of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, 'Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, or see this great fire any more, lest I die.'
And the LORD said to me, 'They have rightly said all that they have spoken.
I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brethren; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
And whoever will not give heed to my words which he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him.
But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.'
