Parashat Devarim

פרשת דברים

ספר דברים


In this fifth and final book of the Torah, Moshe gives a speech a few weeks before he dies, reviewing all the deeds of the children of Israel in the desert. He recalls: the people's need to remain faithful to the commands given by God and the observance of His Torah; the sending of spies into Canaan and the distrust of the people resulting in a whole generation of Israelites who will never know it; the refusal of Moav and Ammon to let the children of Israel pass through their territory; the wars against the Emorites; the settlement of Reuven, Gad, and the half tribe of Menashe; and the leadership of Yehoshu‘a, his successor, in the conquest of the Promised Land.
