Deuteronomy 18:21-22

Context
18:21 Now if you say to yourselves, 1  ‘How can we tell that a message is not from the Lord?’ 2 18:22 whenever a prophet speaks in my 3  name and the prediction 4  is not fulfilled, 5  then I have 6  not spoken it; 7  the prophet has presumed to speak it, so you need not fear him.”

1 tn Heb “in your heart.”

2 tn Heb “know the word which the Lord has not spoken.” The issue here is not understanding the meaning of the message, but distinguishing a genuine prophetic word from a false one.

3 tn Heb “the Lord’s.” See note on the word “his” in v. 5.

4 tn Heb “the word,” but a predictive word is in view here. Cf. NAB “his oracle.”

5 tn Heb “does not happen or come to pass.”

6 tn Heb “the Lord has.” See note on the word “his” in v. 5.

7 tn Heb “that is the word which the Lord has not spoken.”
