Deuteronomy 18

18:1 The priests the Levites, [and] all the tribe of Levi, shall
 have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the
 offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance.
18:2 Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their
 brethren: the LORD [is] their inheritance, as he hath said to
18:3 And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from
 them that offer a sacrifice, whether ox or sheep; and they
 shall give to the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and
 the maw.
18:4 The first-fruit [also] of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thy
 oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give
18:5 For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes,
 to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons
 for ever.
18:6 And if a Levite shall come from any of thy gates out of all
 Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his
 mind to the place which the LORD shall choose;
18:7 Then he shall minister in the name of the LORD his God, as
 all his brethren the Levites [do], who stand there before the
18:8 They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which
 cometh of the sale of his patrimony.
18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God
 giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations
 of those nations.
18:10 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh
 his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that
 useth divination, [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter,
 or a witch,
18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a
 wizard, or a necromancer.
18:12 For all that do these things [are] an abomination to the
 LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth
 drive them out from before thee.
18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
18:14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened to
 observers of times, and to diviners: but as for thee, the LORD
 thy God hath not suffered thee so [to do].
18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up to thee a Prophet from the
 midst of thee, of thy brethren, like to me; to him ye shall
18:16 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God
 in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear
 again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this
 great fire any more, that I may not die.
18:17 And the LORD said to me, They have well [spoken of that]
 which they have spoken.
18:18 I will raise up to them a prophet from among their
 brethren, like thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he
 shall speak to them all that I shall command him.
18:19 And it shall come to pass, [that] whoever will not hearken
 to my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require
 [it] of him.
18:20 But the prophet, who shall presume to speak a word in my
 name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall
 speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
18:21 And if thou shalt say in thy heart, How shall we know the
 word which the LORD hath not spoken?
18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the
 thing doth not follow, nor come to pass, that [is] the thing
 which the LORD hath not spoken, [but] the prophet hath spoken
 it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
