View Deuteronomy 18 in the note window.

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 a inheritance.

    (a) That is, the Lord's part of his inheritance.
18:3 And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether [it be] ox or sheep; and they shall give unto the priest the b shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw. 18:6 And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with c all the desire of his mind unto the place which the LORD shall choose;
    (c) Meaning, to serve God whole heartedly, and not to seek ease.
18:8 They shall have like portions to eat, d beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony.
    (d) Not forced to live from himself.
18:10 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to e pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
    (e) Signifying they were purged by this ceremony of passing between two fires.
18:13 Thou shalt be f perfect with the LORD thy God.
    (f) Without hypocrisy or mixture or false religion.

18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a g Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

    (g) Meaning, a continual succession of prophets, till Christ, the end of all prophets, comes.
18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his h mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
    (h) A promise not only made to Christ, but to all that teach in his name, (Isa 59:21).
18:19 And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will i require [it] of him.
    (i) By executing punishment on him.
18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing k follow not, 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.
    (k) Under this sure note he comprises all the other tokens.
