1'The levitical priests, the whole tribe of Levi wil be without share or heritage of their own in Israel; theywil live on the foods offered to Yahweh and on his heritage. 2Levi wil have no heritage of his own among his brothers; Yahweh will be his heritage, as he haspromised him. 3'This is what is due to the priests from the people, from those who offer an ox or a sheep in sacrifice:the priest must be given the shoulder, the cheeks and the stomach. 4You must give him the first-fruits of your wheat, of your new wine and of your oil, as wel as the first-fruits of your sheep-shearing. 5For Yahweh your God has chosen him from all your tribes to stand before Yahweh your God, to do theduties of the sacred ministry, and to bless in Yahweh's name -- him and his sons for al time. 6'If a Levite living in one of your towns anywhere in Israel decides to move to the place chosen byYahweh, 7he shal minister there in the name of Yahweh his God like al his fel ow Levites who stand ministering there in the presence of Yahweh, 8eating equal shares with them -- what he has from the sale of his patrimony notwithstanding. 9'When you have entered the country given you by Yahweh your God, you must not learn to imitate thedetestable practices of the nations there already. 10There must never be anyone among you who makes his son or daughter pass through the fire ofsacrifice, who practises divination, who is soothsayer, augur or sorcerer, 11weaver of spells, consulter of ghosts or mediums, or necromancer. 12For anyone who does these things is detestable to Yahweh your God; it is because of thesedetestable practices that Yahweh your God is driving out these nations before you. 13'You must be faultless in your relationship with Yahweh your God. 14For these nations whom you are going to dispossess have listened to soothsayers and mediums, butYahweh your God does not permit you to do this. From among yourselves, from among your own brothers, 15Yahweh your God will raise up a prophet like me; you wil listen to him. 16This is exactly what you asked Yahweh your God to do -- at Horeb, on the day of the Assembly,when you said, "Never let me hear the voice of Yahweh my God or see this great fire again, or I shal die." 17Then Yahweh said to me, 18"What they have said is wel said. From their own brothers I shal raise up a prophet like yourself; 19I shal put my words into his mouth and he wil tel them everything I command him. Anyone whorefuses to listen to my words, spoken by him in my name, wil have to render an account to me. 20But the prophet who presumes to say something in my name which I have not commanded him tosay, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die." 21'You may be privately wondering, "How are we to tel that a prophecy does not come from Yahweh?" 22When a prophet speaks in the name of Yahweh and the thing does not happen and the word is notfulfil ed, then it has not been said by Yahweh. The prophet has spoken presumptuously. You have nothing tofear from him.'
