Old Testament

15

“The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen—

16

just as you desired of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God or see this great fire any more, lest I die.’
 

17

And the Lord said to me, ‘They are right in what they have spoken.
 

18

I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.

19

And whoever will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him.

Septuagint

15

The Lord thy God shall raise up to thee a prophet of thy brethren, like me; him shall ye hear:
 

16

according to all things which thou didst desire of the Lord thy God in Choreb in the day of the assembly, saying, We will not again hear the voice of the Lord thy God, and we will not any more see this great fire, and so we shall not die.

17

And the Lord said to me, They have spoken rightly all that they have said to thee.

18

I will raise up to them a prophet of their brethren, like thee; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them as I shall command him.
 

19

And whatever man shall not hearken to whatsoever words that prophet shall speak in my name, I will take vengeance on him.

Tanakh

15

The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet from among your own people, like myself; him you shall heed.

16

This is just what you asked of the LORD your God at Horeb, on the day of the Assembly, saying, “Let me not hear the voice of the LORD my God any longer or see this wondrous fire any more, lest I die.”
 

17

Whereupon the LORD said to me, “They have done well in speaking thus.
 

18

I will raise up a prophet for them from among their own people, like yourself: I will put My words in his mouth and he will speak to them all that I command him;

19

and if anybody fails to heed the words he speaks in My name, I myself will call him to account.
