|The Lord your God will raise up for you a PROPHET from your nation and from your brothers, similar to me. You shall listen to him,
|just as you petitioned of the Lord your God at Horeb, when the assembly was gathered together, and you said: ‘Let me no longer hear the voice of the Lord my God, and let me no longer see this very great fire, lest I die.’
|And the Lord said to me: ‘They have spoken all these things well.
|I will raise up a prophet for them, from the midst of their brothers, similar to you. And I will place my words in his mouth, and he will speak to them all the things that I will instruct him.
|But against anyone who is not willing to listen to his words, which he will speak in my name, I will stand forth as the avenger.
|But if a prophet, having been corrupted by arrogance, chooses to speak, in my name, things which I did not instruct him to say, or to speak in the name of foreign gods, he shall be put to death.
