Parsha in 60 Seconds Presents Devarim
Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds.
Today's portion is from Deuteronomy 1:1-3:22 it is called Devarim.
We have now concluded the book Numbers and we must venture into Deuteronomy. 40 years have passed since the Exodus and Moses is giving a big speech. Moses appoints a hierarchy leadership system. The Israelites plan on taking the land and send 12 spies, find giant fruit and giant warriors. Israelites hide in their tents out of fear. God throws down with the Israelites and now nobody except Caleb and Joshua will possess the land.
Wandering begins and end when the sinful generation dies. the Israelites met plenty of people along the way. God tells them not to provoke these people or take their land with exception to Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon. While passing through Heshbon peacefully God hardened Sihon's heart and he attacked and FAILED. King Og head the news and came to fight in Bashan and FAILED. Og was so big that is bedstead was nine cubits long and four cubits wide. The land is then given to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh. These tribes were commanded to continue fighting until all the kingdoms west of the Jordan were taken down by God.
And that is Devarim in 60 seconds.
