Deuteronomy 18
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1"There shall be for the Priest and for the Levites no portion or inheritance among the children of Israel, except the offerings of LORD JEHOVAH, and they shall eat His inheritance. 2And the inheritance will not be for him among his brothers, for LORD JEHOVAH is his inheritance, as He said to him.

3And this shall be the right of the Priest from the people: one who slaughters sacrifices, whether bulls or lambs, will give to the Priest of the shoulder and the cheeks and the maw. 4Give to him the first fruits of your crops and your wine and your oil and first fruits of the wool of your sheep. 5Because LORD JEHOVAH your God chose him from all of your tribes, and he shall stand and he shall serve in the name of LORD JEHOVAH your God, he and his sons, all of their days.

6And if a Levite will come, one of your brethren of all Israel from where he dwells, he will come with all the desire of his soul to the place that LORD JEHOVAH has chosen; 7And he shall serve in the name of LORD JEHOVAH his God as all of his brothers, the Levites, who stand there before LORD JEHOVAH. 8They may eat a portion equally, apart from the sale of the fathers.

9And when you have entered the land that LORD JEHOVAH your God gives you, you shall not learn to do according to the works of those Gentiles. 10There shall not be found among you one who passes his son or his daughter into fire, or who consults an oracle, or who shuts eyes, or who practices sorcery, or one who uses enchantments: 11Or one who charms with charms, or one who inquires of demons or of wizards, or an inquirer of the dead. 12Because everyone whoever does these things is defiled before LORD JEHOVAH your God, and because of these detestable things LORD JEHOVAH your God destroys them from before you. 13Be perfect before LORD JEHOVAH your God. 14Because these nations which you are possessing are listening to demons and to fortune tellers, but LORD JEHOVAH your God has not so allowed you.

15LORD JEHOVAH your God shall raise a Prophet to Himself from within you of your brethren, like me; you shall listen to him; 16As you asked before LORD JEHOVAH your God in Khoreeb in the day of the assembly, and you said: “To hear no more the voice of LORD JEHOVAH my God, and I shall not see this great fire again, lest I die.” 17And LORD JEHOVAH said to me: “They have spoken everything beautifully. 18A Prophet I shall raise to them from within their brethren like you and I shall put my words in his mouth, and he shall say to them everything that I shall command him. 19And a man who will not hear my words that he will speak in my name, I shall require it from him. 20However, a Prophet who will dare to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to say, or who will speak in the name of another god, that Prophet will be killed. 21And if you say in your heart: ‘How shall I know the word that LORD JEHOVAH has not spoken?.’ 22Whenever a Prophet speaks in the Name of LORD JEHOVAH and there is no response and it does not happen, LORD JEHOVAH did not speak that word; the Prophet spoke it in presumption; you shall not revere him.”
