Introduction to Deuteronomy Chapter 18

This chapter gives an account of the provision made for the priests and Levites, with the reason of it, Deuteronomy 18:1, of allowance of a country Levite to minister at Jerusalem, and take his portion with the rest, Deuteronomy 18:6, and of several persons of bad practices not to be suffered among the people of Israel, Deuteronomy 18:9, and of an extraordinary prophet that should be raised up among them, to whom they should hearken, or it would be the worse for them, Deuteronomy 18:15, but a false prophet was to be put to death, of whom a sign is given by which he might be known, Deuteronomy 18:20.
