1. Va’etchanan 1st Aliyah (Deu 3)
23 I also pleaded with יהוה at that time, saying: 24 "O Master
,יהוה you have begun to show your servant your greatness
and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on
earth who can do such works and mighty acts as yours? 25 Let
me, I pray, pass over and see the good land beyond the
Yarden—this good hill country, and L'vanon.”
2. Va’etchanan 1st Aliyah (Deu 3)
26 But יהוה was enraged with me on your account, and would
not listen to me, and יהוה said to me, "Enough! Speak to me
no more regarding this matter. 27 Go up to the top of Pisgah
and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward
and eastward and look with your eyes, for you do not pass over
3. Va’etchanan 1st Aliyah (Deu 3)
28 But charge Y'hoshua, and strengthen him and encourage him,
for he shall pass over before this people and he will make them
inherit the land which you will see.” 29 And we dwelt in the
valley opposite Beit-P'or.
4. Va’etchanan 1st Aliyah (Deu 4)
1 And now, O Isra’el, listen to the laws and the right-rulings which
I am teaching you, for to follow them, so that you may live and
go in and take possession of the land that יהוה Elohim of your
fathers, is giving you. 2 Do not add to the word which I
command you, nor take away from it, to guard the mitzvot of
יהוה your Elohim which I command you.
5. Va’etchanan 1st-2nd Aliyah (Deu 4)
3 Your eyes have seen what יהוה did at Ba'al-P'or, for all the
men who followed Ba'al-P'or, יהוה your Elohim has destroyed
from your midst, 4 but you who held fast to יהוה your Elohim
are alive today, every one of you.
5 See, I have taught you laws and right-rulings, as יהוה my
Elohim commanded me, to do so in the land to which you are
entering to possess.
6. Va’etchanan 2nd Aliyah (Deu 4)
6 And you shall guard them and do them, for that is your wisdom
and your understanding in the eyes of the peoples, who will
hear all these laws and say, "Only this great nation is a wise
and understanding people." 7 For what great nation is there
that has Elohim so near to it, as יהוה our Elohim is at all times
whenever we call on Him?
7. Va’etchanan 2nd Aliyah (Deu 4)
8 And what great nation is there that has righteous laws and
right-rulings as this entire Torah which I set before you this
9 Only give heed to yourself, and guard your life diligently, lest
you forget the Words that your eyes have seen, and lest they
depart from your heart all the days of your life. And you shall
make them known to your sons and your grandsons.
8. Va’etchanan 2nd Aliyah (Deu 4)
10 Remember the day you stood before יהוה your Elohim at
Horev, when יהוה said to me, “Assemble the people to me,
and I will make them hear my Words so that they may learn to
fear me all the days they live on the earth and that they may
teach them to their children.” 11 And you came near and stood
at the foot of the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire
to the very heart of the heavens—darkness, cloud, and thick
9. Va’etchanan 2nd Aliyah (Deu 4)
12 Then יהוה spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard
a voice of words but saw no form, just a voice. 13 And he
declared to you his covenant, which he commanded you to do,
that is, the Ten Words, and he wrote them on two tablets of
10. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
1 Then Moshe called all Isra’el and said to them:
“Hear, O Isra’el, the laws and the rulings which I am speaking
today in your hearing, that you shall learn them and observe
them carefully. 2 יהוה our Elohim made a covenant with us in
Horev. 3 יהוה did not make this covenant with our fathers, but
with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive.
11. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
4 יהוה spoke with you face to face on the mountain from the
midst of the fire. 5 I stood between יהוה and you at that time,
to declare to you the Word of ;יהוה for you were afraid
because of the fire, and you did not go up the mountain. He
6 “I am יהוה your Elohim who brought you out of the land of
Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage.
7 “You shall have no other gods before me.
12. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
8 “You do not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of
anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth
beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 9 You do not
bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim, am
a jealous El, visiting the crookedness of the fathers upon the
children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate
13. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
10 but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love me and
guard my mitzvot.
11 “You shall not take the Name of יהוה your Elohim in vain, for
יהוה does not leave him unpunished who takes his name in
12 “Guard the day of Shabbat to keep it holy, as יהוה your
Elohim commanded you.
14. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
13 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but the
seventh day is a Shabbat of יהוה your Elohim; in it you do not
do any work, you nor your son nor your daughter nor your male
servant nor your female servant nor your ox nor your donkey
nor any of your cattle nor your stranger who stays with you, so
that your male servant and your female servant may rest as
well as you.
15. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
15 And remember that you were a slave in the land of Mitsrayim,
and יהוה your Elohim brought you out from there by a strong
hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore יהוה your Elohim
commanded you to observe the day of Shabbat.
16. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
16 “Respect your father and your mother, as יהוה your Elohim
has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged and
that it may go well with you on the soil which יהוה your Elohim
17. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
17 “You do not murder.
“You do not commit adultery.
“You do not steal.
“You do not bear false witness against your neighbour.
18. Va’etchanan 4th Aliyah (Deu 5)
18 “You do not covet your neighbour’s wife; and you do not
desire your neighbour’s house, his field, his male servant, his
female servant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your
19. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 5)
19 These Words יהוה spoke to all your assembly, in the
mountain from the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick
darkness, with a loud voice, which did not cease. And he wrote
them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.
20 So it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the
darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you
came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders.
20. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 5)
21 And you said, “Surely יהוה our Elohim has shown us his
esteem and his greatness, and we have heard his voice from
the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that Elohim speaks
with man; yet he still lives. 22 Now therefore, why should we
die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of
יהוה our Elohim anymore, then we shall die.
21. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 5)
23 For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the
living Elohim speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have,
and lived? 24 You go near and hear all that יהוה our Elohim
may say, and tell us all that יהוה our Elohim says to you, and
we shall hear and do it.”
22. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 5)
25 Then יהוה heard the voice of your words when you spoke to
me, and יהוה said to me, “I have heard the voice of the words
of this people which they have spoken to you. They are right in
all that they have spoken. 26 Oh, that they had such a heart in
them that they would fear me and always guard all my mitzvot,
that it might be well with them and with their children forever!
27 “Go and say to them to return to their tents.
23. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 5)
28 But as for you, stand here by me, and I will speak to you all
the mitzvot, the laws, and the right-rulings which you shall
teach them, that they shall do them in the land which I am
giving them to possess.”
29 Therefore you shall be careful to do as יהוה your Elohim has
commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to
24. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 5)
30 You shall walk in all the ways which יהוה your Elohim has
commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with
you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you
25. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 6)
1 “Now this is the mitzvah, and these are the laws and right-
rulings which יהוה your Elohim has commanded to teach you,
that you may observe them in the land which you are passing
over to possess, 2 that you may fear יהוה your Elohim, to
guard all his laws and his regulations and his mitzvot which I
command you, you and your son and your grandson, all the
days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged.
26. Va’etchanan 5th Aliyah (Deu 6)
3 Therefore hear, O Isra’el, and be careful to observe it, that it
may be well with you, and that you may increase greatly as
יהוה Elohim of your fathers has promised you—'in a land
flowing with milk and honey.'
27. Va’etchanan 6th Aliyah (Deu 6)
4 Sh'ma, Yisra'el: יהוה Eloheinu, יהוה echad [Hear, O Isra'el:
יהוה our Elohim, יהוה is one]. 5 And you shall love יהוה your
Elohim with all your heart and with all your being and with all
your might. 6 And these Words which I am commanding you
today shall be on your heart.
28. Va’etchanan 6th Aliyah (Deu 6)
7 And you shall impress them to your sons and shall speak of
them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the
way, and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 And you
shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as
frontlets between your eyes. 9 And you shall write them on the
doorposts of your house and on your gates.
29. Va’etchanan 6th Aliyah (Deu 6)
10 And it shall be, when יהוה your Elohim brings you into the
land which he swore to your fathers, to Avraham, to Yitz'chak
and to Ya'akov, to give you—great and good cities which you
did not build, 11 and houses full of all good things which you
did not fill, and hewn cisterns which you did not dig, vineyards
and olive trees which you did not plant—and you shall eat and
30. Va’etchanan 6th Aliyah (Deu 6)
12 beware, lest you forget ,יהוה who brought you out of the land
of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage.
13 You shall fear only יהוה your Elohim; and you shall serve him
and swear by his name. 14 Do not go after other gods, of the
gods of the peoples who are around you;
31. Va’etchanan 6th Aliyah (Deu 6)
15 for יהוה your Elohim in the midst of you is a jealous El, lest
the displeasure of יהוה your Elohim, be kindled against you,
and he shall destroy you off the face of the earth. 16 You shall
not try יהוה your Elohim as you tried him in Massah. 17
Diligently guard the mitzvot of יהוה your Elohim and his
witnesses and his laws which he has commanded you.
32. Va’etchanan 6th Aliyah (Deu 6)
18 And you shall do what is right and good in the eyes of ,יהוה
that it may be well with you and that you shall go in and
possess the good land which יהוה swore to give your fathers,
19 to drive out all your enemies from before you, as יהוה has
33. Va’etchanan 7th Aliyah (Deu 7)
1 When יהוה your Elohim brings you into the land to which you
are entering to possess it, he shall clear away many nations
before you—the Hitti, and the Girgashi, and the Emori, and the
Kena'ani, and the P'rizi, and the Hivi and and the Y'vusi, seven
nations greater and mightier than you—
34. Va’etchanan 7th Aliyah (Deu 7)
2 And when יהוה your Elohim delivers them before you and you
defeat them, then you must completely destroy them. You shall
make no covenant with them and show no favour to them. 3
You do not intermarry with them. You do not give your daughter
to his son, and you do not take his daughter for your son,
35. Va’etchanan 7th Aliyah (Deu 7)
4 for he will turn your sons away from following me to serve other
gods; then the displeasure of יהוה shall be kindled against you
and he will promptly destroy you. 5 But so shall you do to them:
You shall break down their altars, and smash their sacred
pillars, and cut down their Asherim and burn their carved
images with fire.
36. Va’etchanan 7th Aliyah (Deu 7)
6 For you are a set-apart people to יהוה your Elohim. יהוה your
Elohim has chosen you to be his treasured people, out of all
the peoples on the face of the earth.
7 יהוה did not set his love on you nor choose you because you
were more numerous than any people, for you were the least
of all peoples.
37. Va’etchanan 7th Aliyah (Deu 7)
8 But because of 'יהוהs love for you, and because he keeps the
oath he swore to your fathers, יהוה brought you out with a
strong hand and redeemed you from the house of bondage,
from the hand of Pharaoh sovereign of Mitsrayim. 9 Know
therefore that יהוה your Elohim; he is Elohim, the trustworthy
El, who keeps his covenant and loving kindness to a thousand
generations with those who love him and guard his mitzvot.
38. Va’etchanan 7th Aliyah (Deu 7)
10 But repays those who hate him to their face, to them;
he does not delay to do so with him who hates him, he will repay
him to his face.
11 Therefore, you shall guard the mitzvot, and the laws and the
right-rulings which I command you today, to do them.
