Thanksgiving offerings unto Yehovah - Ki Tavo
Thanksgiving offerings unto Yehovah

Shabbat Shalom, y’all!

We’re in the book of Deuteronomy (Hebrew: בְּמִדְבַּר, Devarim), reading in Ki Tavo

+++++ There was  ++++ evening and morning

test everything, hold tight to what is good – 1 Thessalonians 5:21

֍ ֍ ֍ What is this Torah portion about?

This parashah, Ki Tavo tells of the ceremony of the firstfruits (בִּכּוּרִים‎, bikkurim), tithes, and the blessings from observance and curses (תוֹכֵחָה‎, tocheichah) from violation of the law. (<<—edited from wikipedia)

֍ ֍ ֍ Where are we in our studies?

Ki Tavo

in the Book of Deuteronomy (literally “second law,” from Greek deuteros + nomos“)

Devarim is a plural word. The root is Davar which means, word, speech, or thing. So “devarim” means words, speech, or things. I agree with Yirmiyahu Ben Azriel that “words” is the best translation in this context.

You should know that Devarim is not the Hebrew word for Deuteronomy. Deuteronomy is Greek for “second law.” Meaning the second giving of the law. Mosheh expounds on where they’ve come and admonished how to proceed from there on.

֍ ֍ ֍ What is our study called?

Ki Tavo, Ki Thavo, Ki Tabo, Ki Thabo, or Ki Savo (Hebrew: כִּי-תָבוֹא‎ — Hebrew for “when you enter,”)

Parshat Ki Tavo: Blessings, Curses, and a Holy Marriage

by: BimBam

Aug 31, 2009
How can we think about our relationship with God? Check out this week’s Torah portion!

Thinking about the covenant between the People and God can be hard and sometimes alienating…so Rav Raz Hartman and Leah Hartman – the Jerusalem couple who narrate this week’s parsha – describe it like a joyful marriage. So put on your dancing shoes and celebrate with them in this week’s portion!

This is Episode 50 of the weekly Torah cartoon from BimBam.com. Each week, a different storyteller – some musical, some poetic, some just straight-up, tell the story of the current Torah portion…and then we animate it!

If you desire you can watch this here on YouTube.

NOTE: For Older Testament passages I’ve become rather interested in reading them in the Septuagint. I know some passages are different there comparably, but the Septuagint seems to have more depth in understanding than the Bibles translated using the Masoretic text created in about 600-1000 a.d. This is compared to the origins of the Septuagint.

The Septuagint is the very first translation of the Hebrew Bible from Hebrew to another language into Greek. It’s believed that it was probably translated as early as the third century BC. The Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek is traditionally dated to the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus of Egypt (285-246 BC).
