Deuteronomy 18:4-14

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.
