I have seen a number of Protestant sources claim that because there were no prophets in the roughly 400-year intertestamental period, no literature produced during this period can be considered Divinely-inspired Scripture, thus excluding the so-called apocryphal/deuterocanonical books from the canon.

But isn't there a difference between inspiration and prophecy? It seems to me the office of prophet is a specific charism, but that there are other ways the Holy Spirit can go about inspiring Scripture.

1 Samuel 25:22 (KJV)
So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall.
