Torah parsha of the week: Ki Tavo
The Fifth Book of Moses: Devarim (Deuteronomy)


4 The priest shall take the basket from your hand and set it down in front of the altar of the LORD your God.

5 You shall then recite as follows before the LORD your God: “My father was a fugitive Aramean. We went down to Egypt with meager numbers and sojourned there; but there we became a great and very populous nation.

6 The Egyptians dealt harshly with us and oppressed us; they imposed heavy labor upon us.

7 We cried to the LORD, the God of our fathers, and the LORD heard our plea and saw our plight, our misery, and our oppression,

8 The LORD freed us from Egypt by a mighty hand, by an out-stretched arm and awesome power, and by signs and portents.

9 He brought us to this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.

10 Wherefore I now bring the first fruits of the soil which You, Oh LORD, have given me.”


And the Lord has affirmed this day that you are as He promised you, His treasured people who shall observe all his commandments.


King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan came out to engage us in battle but we defeated them. We took their land and gave it the Reubenites, the Gadites and half the tribe of Manesseh as their heritage.
