Portion of the Levites

1 "The R613 Levitical priests, the whole tribe of Levi, shall have no portion or inheritance with Israel; they shall eat the LORD'S offerings by fire and His portion. F263 2 "They R614 shall have no inheritance among their countrymen; F264 the LORD is their inheritance, as He promised F265 them.

3 "Now R615 this shall be the priests' due from the people, from those who offer a sacrifice, either an ox or a sheep, of which they shall give to the priest the shoulder and the two cheeks and the stomach. 4 "You shall give him the first R616 fruits of your grain, your new wine, and your oil, and the first shearing of your sheep. 5 "For R617 the LORD your God has chosen him and his sons from all your tribes, to stand R618 and F266 serve in the name of the LORD forever.

6 "Now if a Levite comes from any of your towns F267 throughout Israel where he resides, R619 and comes whenever F268 he desires to the place which the LORD chooses, 7 then he shall serve in the name of the LORD his God, like all his fellow Levites who stand there before the LORD. 8 "They R620 shall eat equal F269 portions, except what they receive from the sale of their fathers' estates.

Spiritism Forbidden

9 "When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate R621 F270 the detestable things of those nations. 10 "There shall not be found among you anyone who R622 makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who R623 practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or R624 a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 "For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because R625 of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you. 13 "You R626 shall be blameless F271 before the LORD your God. 14 "For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice R627 witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do so.

15 "The R628 LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, F272 you shall listen to him. 16 "This is according R629 to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, `Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die.' 17 "The R630 LORD said to me, `They have spoken F273 well. 18 `I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen F274 like you, and I R631 will put My words in his mouth, and he R632 shall speak to them all that I command him. 19 `It R633 shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him. 20 `But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously R634 in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which R635 he speaks in the name of other gods, that F275 prophet shall die.' 21 "You F276 may say in your heart, `How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?' 22 "When R636 a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; R637 you shall not be afraid of him.
