15 “Yahweh your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your midst, from your countrymen,x and to him you shall listen. 16 This is ⌊according to all that you asked⌋y from Yahweh your God at Horeb, on the day of the assembly, ⌊saying⌋,z ‘⌊I do not want again to hear⌋a the voice of Yahweh my God, and I do not want to see again this great fire, so that I may not die!’ 17 And Yahweh said to me, ‘They are right in what they have said. 18 I will raise up a prophet for them ⌊from among their countrymen⌋b like you, and I will placec my words into his mouth, and he shall speak to them ⌊everything that I command him⌋.d 19 ⌊And then⌋e the man that will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I will hold accountable. 20 However, the prophet that behaves presumptuously by speaking a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, and who speaks in the name of other gods, then that prophet shall die.’ 21 And if you say ⌊to yourself⌋,f ‘How can we know the word that Yahweh has not spoken it?’ 22 Whenever what the prophet spoke in the name of Yahweh, the thing does not take place and does not come about, that is the thing that Yahweh has not spoken it. Presumptuously the prophet spoke it; you shall not fear him.”
