In this final book of Torah, Moses reviews much of the history and the laws given to the Jewish people: hence the Greek name: 'Second Telling' (deutero = two and Nomos = words), taken from phrase 'Mishneh Torah', Deut. 17:18. In Deuteronomy, the belief that following HaSHem's rules will bring blessing; while spurning HaShem will result in calamity is stressed. Idolatry and other false practices are continually denounced. Many scholars identify Deuteronomy with the book of Teaching found by Hilkiah the High Priest (during the reign of King Josiah- II Kings 22:8) during the reforms the king was instituting to strengthen Israel and its religion. There are thirty-four chapters, divided into eleven parashiyot.
The parashiyot of Devarim are: Devarim, Va'Etchanan, Ekev, Re'eh, Shoftim, Ki Tetze, Ki Tavo, Nitzavim, VaYelech, Ha'azinu, and Zot HaBrachah.

32:1 Give ear, ye heavens, and I will speak;
And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain,
My speech shall distil as the dew;
As the small rain upon the tender grass,
And as the showers upon the herb.
3 For I will proclaim the name of the LORD;
Ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
4 The Rock, His work is perfect;
For all His ways are justice;
A God of faithfulness and without iniquity,
Just and right is He.
5 Is corruption His? No; His children’s is the blemish;
A generation crooked and perverse.
6 Do ye thus requite the LORD,
O foolish people and unwise?
Is not He thy father that hath gotten thee?
Hath He not made thee, and established thee?
7 Remember the days of old,
Consider the years of many generations;
Ask thy father, and he will declare unto thee,
Thine elders, and they will tell thee.
8 When the Most High gave to the nations
When He separated the children of men,
He set the borders of the peoples
According to the number of the children of Israel.
9 For the portion of the LORD is His people,
Jacob the lot of His inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land,
And in the waste, a howling wilderness;
He compassed him about, He cared for him,
He kept him as the apple of His eye.
11 As an eagle that stirs up her nest,
Hovers over her young,
Spreads abroad her wings, taketh them,
Bears them on her pinions—
12 The LORD alone did lead him,
And there was no strange god with Him.
13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth,
And he did eat the fruitage of the field;
And He made him to suck honey out of the crag,
And oil out of the flinty rock;
14 Curd of kine, and milk of sheep,
With fat of lambs,
And rams of the breed of Bashan, and he-goats,
With the kidney-fat of wheat;
And of the blood of the grape thou drankest foaming wine.
15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked—
Thou didst wax fat, thou didst grow thick, thou didst become gross—
And he forsook God who made him,
And contemned the Rock of his salvation.
16 They roused Him to jealousy with strange gods,
With abominations did they provoke Him.
17 They sacrificed unto demons, no-gods,
Gods that they knew not,
New gods that came up of late,
Which your fathers dreaded not.
18 Of the Rock that begot thee thou wast unmindful,
And didst forget God that bore thee.
19 And the LORD saw, and spurned,
Because of the provoking of His sons and
20 And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them,
I will see what their end shall be;
For they are a very froward generation,
Children in whom is no faithfulness.
21 They have roused Me to jealousy with a no-god;
They have provoked Me with their vanities;
And I will rouse them to jealousy with a no-people;
I will provoke them with a vile nation. 22 For a fire is kindled in My nostril,
And burneth unto the depths of the nether-world,
And devoureth the earth with her produce,
And setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains.
23 I will heap evils upon them;
I will spend Mine arrows upon them;
24 The wasting of hunger, and the
devouring of the fiery bolt,
And bitter destruction;
And the teeth of beasts will I send upon them,
With the venom of crawling things of the dust.
25 Without shall the sword bereave,
And in the chambers terror;
Slaying both young man and virgin,
The suckling with the man of gray hairs.
26 I thought I would make an end of them,
I would make their memory cease from among men;
27 Were it not that I dreaded the enemy’s provocation,
Lest their adversaries should misdeem,
Lest they should say: Our hand is exalted,
And not the LORD hath wrought all this.’
28 For they are a nation void of counsel,
And there is no understanding in them.
29 If they were wise, they would understand this,
They would discern their latter end.
30 How should one chase a thousand,
And two put ten thousand to flight,
Except their Rock had given them over
And the LORD had delivered them up?
31 For their rock is not as our Rock,
Even our enemies themselves being
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom,
And of the fields of Gomorrah;
Their grapes are grapes of gall,
Their clusters are bitter;
33 Their wine is the venom of serpents,
And the cruel poison of asps.
34 ’Is not this laid up in store with Me,
Sealed up in My treasuries?
35 Vengeance is Mine, and recompense,
Against the time when their foot shall slip;
For the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things that are to come upon them shall make haste.
36 For the LORD will judge His people,
And repent Himself for His servants;
When He seeth that their stay is gone,
And there is none remaining, shut up or left at large.
37 And it is said: Where are their gods,
The rock in whom they trusted;
38 Who did eat the fat of their sacrifices,
And drank the wine of their drink-
Let him rise up and help you,
Let him be your protection.
39 See now that I, even I, am He,
And there is no god with Me;
I kill, and I make alive;
I have wounded, and I heal;
And there is none that can deliver out of My hand.
40 For I lift up My hand to heaven,
And say: As I live for ever,
41 If I whet My glittering sword,
And My hand take hold on judgment;
I will render vengeance to Mine
And will recompense them that hate Me.
42 I will make Mine arrows drunk with blood,
And My sword shall devour flesh;
With the blood of the slain and the captives,
From the long-haired heads of the enemy.’
43 Sing aloud, O ye nations, of His people;
For He doth avenge the blood of His servants,
And doth render vengeance to His
And doth make expiation for the land of His people.
44 And Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun. 45And when Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel, 46 he said unto them: ‘Set your heart unto all the words wherewith I testify against you this day; that ye may charge your children therewith to observe to do all the words of this law. 47 For it is no vain thing for you; because it is your life, and through this thing ye shall prolong your days upon
the land, whither ye go over the Jordan to possess it.’
48 And the LORD spoke unto Moses that selfsame day, saying: 49 ’Get thee up into this mountain of Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession; 50 and die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people. 51 Because ye trespassed against Me in the midst of the children of Israel at the waters of Meribath-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified Me not in the midst of the children of Israel. 52 For thou shalt see the land afar off; but thou shalt not go thither into the land which I give the children of Israel.’

14:2 Return, O Israel, unto the LORD thy God;
For thou hast stumbled in thine iniquity.
3 Take with you words,
And return unto the LORD;
Say unto Him: ‘Forgive all iniquity,
And accept that which is good;
So will we render for bullocks the offering of our lips.
4 Asshur shall not save us;
We will not ride upon horses;
Neither will we call any more the work of our hands our gods;
For in Thee the fatherless findeth mercy.’
5 I will heal their backsliding,
I will love them freely;
For Mine anger is turned away from him.
6 I will be as the dew unto Israel;
He shall blossom as the lily,
And cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
7 His branches shall spread,
And his beauty shall be as the olive-tree,
And his fragrance as Lebanon.
8 They that dwell under his shadow shall again
Make corn to grow,
And shall blossom as the vine;
The scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
9 Ephraim [shall say]:
‘What have I to do any more with idols?’
As for Me, I respond and look on him;
I am like a leafy cypress-tree;
From Me is thy fruit found.
10 Whoso is wise, let him understand these things,
Whoso is prudent, let him know them.
For the ways of the LORD are right,
And the just do walk in them;
But transgressors do stumble therein.

15 Blow the horn in Zion,
Sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly;
16 Gather the people,
Sanctify the congregation,
Assemble the elders,
Gather the children,
And those that suck the breasts;
Let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber,
And the bride out of her pavilion.
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD,
Weep between the porch and the altar,
And let them say: ‘Spare thy people, O LORD,
And give not Thy heritage to reproach,
That the nations should make them a byword:
Wherefore should they say among the peoples:
Where is their God?’
18 Then was the LORD jealous for His land,
And had pity on His people.
19 And the LORD answered and said unto His people:
‘Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil,
And ye shall be satisfied therewith;
And I will no more make you a reproach among the nations;
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern one,
And will drive him into a land barren and desolate,
With his face toward the eastern sea,
And his hinder part toward the western sea;
That his foulness may come up, and his ill savour may come up,
Because he hath done great things.’
21 Fear not, O land, be glad and rejoice;
For the LORD hath done great things.
22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field;
For the pastures of the wilderness do spring,
For the tree bears its fruit,
The fig-tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice
In the LORD your God;
For He gives you the former rain in just measure,
And He causes to come down for you the rain,
The former rain and the latter rain, at the first.
24 And the floors shall be full of corn,
And the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten,
The canker-worm, and the caterpiller, and the palmer-worm,
My great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
And shall praise the name of the LORD your God,
That hath dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am the LORD your God, and there is none else;
And My people shall never be ashamed.

Who is a God like unto Thee, that pardons the iniquity,
And passes by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?
He retains not His anger for ever,
Because He delights in mercy.
He will again have compassion upon us;
He will subdue our iniquities;
And Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Thou wilt show faithfulness to Jacob, mercy to Abraham,
As Thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.
