Deuteronomy 18

BBE 1 The priests, the Levites, that is, all the tribe of Levi, will have no part or heritage with Israel: their food and their heritage will be the offerings of the Lord made by fire. NIV 1 The Levitical priests—indeed, the whole tribe of Levi—are to have no allotment or inheritance with Israel. They shall live on the food offerings presented to the LORD, for that is their inheritance. BBE 2 And they will have no heritage among their countrymen: the Lord is their heritage, as he has said to them. NIV 2 They shall have no inheritance among their fellow Israelites; the LORD is their inheritance, as he promised them. BBE 3 And this is to be the priests' right: those who make an offering of a sheep or an ox are to give to the priest the top part of the leg and the two sides of the head and the stomach. NIV 3 This is the share due the priests from the people who sacrifice a bull or a sheep: the shoulder, the internal organs and the meat from the head. BBE 4 And in addition you are to give him the first of your grain and wine and oil, and the first wool cut from your sheep. NIV 4 You are to give them the firstfruits of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the first wool from the shearing of your sheep, BBE 5 For he, and his sons after him for ever, have been marked out by the Lord your God from all your tribes, to do the work of priests in the name of the Lord. NIV 5 for the LORD your God has chosen them and their descendants out of all your tribes to stand and minister in the LORD’s name always. BBE 6 And if a Levite, moved by a strong desire, comes from any town in all Israel where he is living to the place marked out by the Lord; NIV 6 If a Levite moves from one of your towns anywhere in Israel where he is living, and comes in all earnestness to the place the LORD will choose, BBE 7 Then he will do the work of a priest in the name of the Lord his God, with all his brothers the Levites who are there before the Lord. NIV 7 he may minister in the name of the LORD his God like all his fellow Levites who serve there in the presence of the LORD. BBE 8 His food will be the same as theirs, in addition to what has come to him as the price of his property. NIV 8 He is to share equally in their benefits, even though he has received money from the sale of family possessions. BBE 9 When you have come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, do not take as your example the disgusting ways of those nations. NIV 9 When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. BBE 10 Let there not be seen among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter go through the fire, or anyone using secret arts, or a maker of strange sounds, or a reader of signs, or any wonder-worker, NIV 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, BBE 11 Or anyone using secret force on people, or putting questions to a spirit, or having secret knowledge, or going to the dead for directions. NIV 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. BBE 12 For all who do such things are disgusting to the Lord; and because of these disgusting things the Lord your God is driving them out before you. NIV 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. BBE 13 You are to be upright in heart before the Lord your God. NIV 13 You must be blameless before the LORD your God. BBE 14 For these nations, whose land you are taking, give attention to readers of signs and to those using secret arts: but the Lord your God will not let you do so. NIV 14 The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so. BBE 15 The Lord your God will give you a prophet from among your people, like me; you will give ear to him; NIV 15 The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. BBE 16 In answer to the request you made to the Lord your God in Horeb on the day of the great meeting, when you said, Let not the voice of the Lord my God come to my ears again, and let me not see this great fire any more, or death will overtake me. NIV 16 For this is what you asked of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, “Let us not hear the voice of the LORD our God nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die.” BBE 17 Then the Lord said to me, What they have said is well said. NIV 17 The LORD said to me: “What they say is good. BBE 18 I will give them a prophet from among themselves, like you, and I will put my words in his mouth, and he will say to them whatever I give him orders to say. NIV 18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him. BBE 19 And whoever does not give ear to my words which he will say in my name, will be responsible to me. NIV 19 I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name. BBE 20 But the prophet who takes it on himself to say words in my name which I have not given him orders to say, or who says anything in the name of other gods, will come to his death. NIV 20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.” BBE 21 And if you say in your hearts, How are we to be certain that the word does not come from the Lord? NIV 21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?” BBE 22 When a prophet makes a statement in the name of the Lord, if what he says does not take place and his words do not come true, then his word is not the word of the Lord: the words of the prophet were said in the pride of his heart, and you are to have no fear of him. NIV 22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.
