(20) "`However, the prophet who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded him to speak or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die. (21) And in case you should say in your heart: "How shall we know the word that Jehovah has not spoken?" (22) when the prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah and the word does not occur or come true, that is the word that Jehovah did not speak. With presumptuousness the prophet spoke it. You must not get frightened at him.'"
(1) "In case a prophet or a dreamer of a dream arises in your midst and does give you a sign or a portent, (2) and the sign or the portent does come true of which he spoke to you, saying, `Let us walk after other gods, whom you have not known, and let us serve them,' (3) you must not listen to the words of that prophet or to the dreamer of that dream, because Jehovah YOUR God is testing YOU to know whether YOU are loving Jehovah YOUR God with all YOUR heart and all YOUR soul. (4) After Jehovah YOUr God YOU should walk, and him YOU should fear, and his commandments YOU should keep, and to his voice YOU should listen, and him YOU should serve, and to him YOU should cling."
