֍ ֍ ֍ What is this Torah portion about?

In the parashah, Nitzavim, Moses told the Israelites that all the people stood before God to enter into the covenant, violation of which would bring on curses, but if they returned to God and heeded God’s commandments, then God would take them back in love and bring them together again from the ends of the world. Moses taught that this Instruction was not beyond reach, and Moses put before the Israelites life and death, blessing and curse, and exhorted them to choose life by loving God and heeding the commandments.

In the parashah, Vayelech, Moses told the Israelites to be strong and courageous, as God and Joshua would soon lead them into the Promised Land. Moses commanded the Israelites to read the law to all the people every seven years. God told Moses that his death was approaching, that the people would break the covenant, and that God would thus hide God’s face from them, so Moses should therefore write a song to serve as a witness for God against them.  (<<— edited from wikipedia)

 

֍ ֍ ֍ Where are we in our studies?

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.

We’re in the book of Deuteronomy (Greek: Δευτερονόμιον Deuteronómion, lit. ’second law’) is the fifth and last book of the Torah, where it is called Devarim (Hebrew: דְּבָרִים Dəḇārīm, lit. '[the] words [of Moses]’) and the fifth book of the Christian Old Testament.

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).
