Deuteronomy 18:15

Context

18:15 The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you – from your fellow Israelites; 1  you must listen to him.

Deuteronomy 34:10

Context
34:10 No prophet ever again arose in Israel like Moses, who knew the Lord face to face. 2 

1 tc The MT expands here on the usual formula by adding “from among you” (cf. Deut 17:15; 18:18; Smr; a number of Greek texts). The expansion seems to be for the purpose of emphasis, i.e., the prophet to come must be not just from Israel but an Israelite by blood.

tn “from your brothers,” but not referring to actual siblings. Cf. NAB “from among your own kinsmen”; NASB “from your countrymen”; NRSV “from among your own people.” A similar phrase occurs in v. 17.

2 sn See Num 12:8; Deut 18:15-18.
