Deuteronomy 18

NLT 1 “Remember that the Levitical priests—that is, the whole of the tribe of Levi—will receive no allotment of land among the other tribes in Israel. Instead, the priests and Levites will eat from the special gifts given to the LORD, for that is their share. 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. NLT 2 They will have no land of their own among the Israelites. The LORD himself is their special possession, just as he promised them. NIV 2 They shall have no inheritance among their fellow Israelites; the LORD is their inheritance, as he promised them. NLT 3 “These are the parts the priests may claim as their share from the cattle, sheep, and goats that the people bring as offerings: the shoulder, the cheeks, 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. NLT 4 You must also give to the priests the first share of the grain, the new wine, the olive oil, and the wool at shearing time. 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, NLT 5 For the LORD your God chose the tribe of Levi out of all your tribes to minister in the LORD ’s name forever. 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. NLT 6 “Suppose a Levite chooses to move from his town in Israel, wherever he is living, to the place the LORD chooses for worship. 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, NLT 7 He may minister there in the name of the LORD his God, just like all his fellow Levites who are serving the LORD there. 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. NLT 8 He may eat his share of the sacrifices and offerings, even if he also receives support from his family. NIV 8 He is to share equally in their benefits, even though he has received money from the sale of family possessions. NLT 9 “When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. 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. NLT 10 For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering. And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft, 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, NLT 11 or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead. NIV 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. NLT 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD . It is because the other nations have done these detestable things that the LORD your God will drive them out ahead of 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. NLT 13 But you must be blameless before the LORD your God. NIV 13 You must be blameless before the LORD your God. NLT 14 The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the LORD your God forbids you to do such things.” 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. NLT 15 Moses continued, “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your fellow Israelites. You must listen 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. NLT 16 For this is what you yourselves requested of the LORD your God when you were assembled at Mount Sinai. You said, ‘Don’t let us hear the voice of the LORD our God anymore or see this blazing fire, for we will die.’ 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.” NLT 17 “Then the LORD said to me, ‘What they have said is right. NIV 17 The LORD said to me: “What they say is good. NLT 18 I will raise up a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I command him. 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. NLT 19 I will personally deal with anyone who will not listen to the messages the prophet proclaims on my behalf. NIV 19 I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name. NLT 20 But any prophet who falsely claims to speak in my name or who speaks in the name of another god must die.’ 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.” NLT 21 “But you may wonder, ‘How will we know whether or not a prophecy is from the LORD ?’ NIV 21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?” NLT 22 If the prophet speaks in the LORD ’s name but his prediction does not happen or come true, you will know that the LORD did not give that message. That prophet has spoken without my authority and need not be feared. 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.
