Deuteronomy 18 (WEBP)

[1] The priests and the Levites—all the tribe of Levi—shall have no portion nor inheritance with Israel. They shall eat the offerings of Yahweh made by fire and his portion.
[2] They shall have no inheritance among their brothers. Yahweh is their inheritance, as he has spoken to them.
[3] This shall be the priests’ due from the people, from those who offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep, that they shall give to the priest: the shoulder, the two cheeks, and the inner parts.
[4] You shall give him the first fruits of your grain, of your new wine, and of your oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep.
[5] For Yahweh your God has chosen him out of all your tribes to stand to minister in Yahweh’s name, him and his sons forever.
[6] If a Levite comes from any of your gates out of all Israel where he lives, and comes with all the desire of his soul to the place which Yahweh shall choose,
[7] then he shall minister in the name of Yahweh his God, as all his brothers the Levites do, who stand there before Yahweh.
[8] They shall have like portions to eat, in addition to that which comes from the sale of his family possessions.
[9] When you have come into the land which Yahweh your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the abominations of those nations.
[10] There shall not be found with you anyone who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who tells fortunes, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer,
[11] or a charmer, or someone who consults with a familiar spirit, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
[12] For whoever does these things is an abomination to Yahweh. Because of these abominations, Yahweh your God drives them out from before you.
[13] You shall be blameless with Yahweh your God.
[14] For these nations that you shall dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery and to diviners; but as for you, Yahweh your God has not allowed you so to do.
[15] Yahweh your God will raise up to you a prophet from among you, of your brothers, like me. You shall listen to him.
[16] This is according to all that you desired of Yahweh your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, “Let me not hear again Yahweh my God’s voice, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I not die.”
[17] Yahweh said to me, “They have well said that which they have spoken.
[18] I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you. I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him.
[19] It shall happen, that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
[20] But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously 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.”
[21] You may say in your heart, “How shall we know the word which Yahweh has not spoken?”
[22] When a prophet speaks in Yahweh’s name, if the thing doesn’t follow, nor happen, that is the thing which Yahweh has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You shall not be afraid of him.

Deuteronomy 18 (KJVS)

[1] The priests H3548 the Levites H3881, [and] all the tribe H7626 of Levi H3878, shall have no part H2506 nor inheritance H5159 with Israel H3478: they shall eat H398 (8799) the offerings H801 of the LORD H3068 made by fire H801, and his inheritance H5159.
[2] Therefore shall they have no inheritance H5159 among H7130 their brethren H251: the LORD H3068 [is] their inheritance H5159, as he hath said H1696 (8765) unto them.
[3] And this shall be the priest’s H3548 due H4941 from the people H5971, from them that offer H2076 (8802) a sacrifice H2077, whether [it be] ox H7794 or sheep H7716; and they shall give H5414 (8804) unto the priest H3548 the shoulder H2220, and the two cheeks H3895, and the maw H6896.
[4] The firstfruit H7225 [also] of thy corn H1715, of thy wine H8492, and of thine oil H3323, and the first H7225 of the fleece H1488 of thy sheep H6629, shalt thou give H5414 (8799) him.
[5] For the LORD H3068 thy God H430 hath chosen H977 (8804) him out of all thy tribes H7626, to stand H5975 (8800) to minister H8334 (8763) in the name H8034 of the LORD H3068, him and his sons H1121 for ever H3117.
[6] And if a Levite H3881 come H935 (8799) from any H259 of thy gates H8179 out of all Israel H3478, where he sojourned H1481 (8802), and come H935 (8804) with all the desire H185 of his mind H5315 unto the place H4725 which the LORD H3068 shall choose H977 (8799);
[7] Then he shall minister H8334 (8765) in the name H8034 of the LORD H3068 his God H430, as all his brethren H251 the Levites H3881 [do], which stand H5975 (8802) there before H6440 the LORD H3068.
[8] They shall have like portions H2506 to eat H398 (8799), beside that which cometh of the sale H4465 of his patrimony H1.
[9] When thou art come H935 (8802) into the land H776 which the LORD H3068 thy God H430 giveth H5414 (8802) thee, thou shalt not learn H3925 (8799) to do H6213 (8800) after the abominations H8441 of those nations H1471.
[10] There shall not be found H4672 (8735) among you [any one] that maketh his son H1121 or his daughter H1323 to pass H5674 (8688) through the fire H784, [or] that useth H7080 (8802) divination H7081, [or] an observer of times H6049 (8781), or an enchanter H5172 (8764), or a witch H3784 (8764),
[11] Or a charmer H2266 (8802) H2267, or a consulter H7592 (8802) with familiar spirits H178, or a wizard H3049, or a necromancer H1875 (8802) H4191 (8801).
[12] For all that do H6213 (8802) these things [are] an abomination H8441 unto the LORD H3068: and because H1558 of these abominations H8441 the LORD H3068 thy God H430 doth drive them out H3423 (8688) from before H6440 thee.
[13] Thou shalt be perfect H8549 with the LORD H3068 thy God H430.
[14] For these nations H1471, which thou shalt possess H3423 (8802), hearkened H8085 (8799) unto observers of times H6049 (8781), and unto diviners H7080 (8802): but as for thee, the LORD H3068 thy God H430 hath not suffered H5414 (8804) thee so [to do].
[15] The LORD H3068 thy God H430 will raise up H6965 (8686) unto thee a Prophet H5030 from the midst H7130 of thee, of thy brethren H251, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken H8085 (8799);
[16] According to all that thou desiredst H7592 (8804) of the LORD H3068 thy God H430 in Horeb H2722 in the day H3117 of the assembly H6951, saying H559 (8800), Let me not hear H8085 (8800) again H3254 (8686) the voice H6963 of the LORD H3068 my God H430, neither let me see H7200 (8799) this great H1419 fire H784 any more, that I die H4191 (8799) not.
[17] And the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799) unto me, They have well H3190 (8689) [spoken that] which they have spoken H1696 (8765).
[18] I will raise them up H6965 (8686) a Prophet H5030 from among H7130 their brethren H251, like unto thee, and will put H5414 (8804) my words H1697 in his mouth H6310; and he shall speak H1696 (8765) unto them all that I shall command H6680 (8762) him.
[19] And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever H376 will not hearken H8085 (8799) unto my words H1697 which he shall speak H1696 (8762) in my name H8034, I will require H1875 (8799) [it] of him.
[20] But the prophet H5030, which shall presume H2102 (8686) to speak H1696 (8763) a word H1697 in my name H8034, which I have not commanded H6680 (8765) him to speak H1696 (8763), or that shall speak H1696 (8762) in the name H8034 of other H312 gods H430, even that prophet H5030 shall die H4191 (8804).
[21] And if thou say H559 (8799) in thine heart H3824, How shall we know H3045 (8799) the word H1697 which the LORD H3068 hath not spoken H1696 (8765)?
[22] When a prophet H5030 speaketh H1696 (8762) in the name H8034 of the LORD H3068, if the thing H1697 follow not, nor come to pass H935 (8799), that [is] the thing H1697 which the LORD H3068 hath not spoken H1696 (8765), [but] the prophet H5030 hath spoken H1696 (8765) it presumptuously H2087: thou shalt not be afraid H1481 (8799) of him.

Young’s Literal Translation

Deuteronomy 18 (YLT)

[1] ‘There is not to the priests the Levites-all the tribe of Levi-a portion and inheritance with Israel; fire-offerings of Jehovah, even His inheritance, they eat,
[2] and he hath no inheritance in the midst of his brethren; Jehovah Himself is his inheritance, as He hath spoken to him.
[3] ‘And this is the priest’s right from the people, from those sacrificing a sacrifice, whether ox or sheep, he hath even given to the priest the leg, and the two cheeks, and the stomach;
[4] the first of thy corn, of thy new wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy flock, thou dost give to him;
[5] for on him hath Jehovah thy God fixed, out of all thy tribes, to stand to serve in the name of Jehovah, He and his sons continually.
[6] ‘And when the Levite cometh from one of thy cities out of all Israel, where he hath sojourned, and hath come with all the desire of his soul unto the place which Jehovah doth choose,
[7] then he hath ministered in the name of Jehovah his God, like all his brethren, the Levites, who are standing there before Jehovah,
[8] portion as portion they do eat, apart from his sold things, with the fathers.
[9] ‘When thou art coming in unto the land which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee, thou dost not learn to do according to the abominations of those nations:
[10] there is not found in thee one causing his son and his daughter to pass over into fire, a user of divinations, an observer of clouds, and an enchanter, and a sorcerer,
[11] and a charmer, and one asking at a familiar spirit, and a wizard, and one seeking unto the dead.
[12] ‘For the abomination of Jehovah is every one doing these, and because of these abominations is Jehovah thy God dispossessing them from thy presence.
[13] Perfect thou art with Jehovah thy God,
[14] for these nations whom thou art possessing, unto observers of clouds, and unto diviners, do hearken; and thou-not so hath Jehovah thy God suffered thee.
[15] ‘A prophet out of thy midst, out of thy brethren, like to me, doth Jehovah thy God raise up to thee-unto him ye hearken;
[16] according to all that thou didst ask from Jehovah thy God, in Horeb, in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not add to hear the voice of Jehovah my God, and this great fire let me not see any more, and I die not;
[17] and Jehovah saith unto me, They have done well that they have spoken;
[18] a prophet I raise up to them, out of the midst of their brethren, like to thee; and I have given my words in his mouth, and he hath spoken unto them all that which I command him;
[19] and it hath been-the man who doth not hearken unto My words which he doth speak in My name, I require it of him.
[20] ‘Only, the prophet who presumeth to speak a word in My name-that which I have not commanded him to speak-and who speaketh in the name of other gods-even that prophet hath died.
[21] ‘And when thou sayest in thy heart, How do we know the word which Jehovah hath not spoken?-
[22] that which the prophet speaketh in the name of Jehovah, and the thing is not, and cometh not-it is the word which Jehovah hath not spoken; in presumption hath the prophet spoken it;-thou art not afraid of him.
