The true prophet is someone we recognize, someone similar to us. …they heed soothsayers and spellers of charms but you, the LORD your God has not given such. A prophet…from your midst, from your brothers, the LORD will raise up…God won’t send a prophet from some other place but He will raise him “from your midst, from your brothers.” We will know the prophet’s “parents, their brothers and sisters.” God is promising us, explains R. Hirsch, our own leadership. The Jewish people find inspiration from within without needing to go to “soothsayers and spellers of charm” that come from elsewhere.
