We are the people of the Book and these are its words. Let us review them.
Moses begins to review the happenings of the past forty years, from the exodus, to Sinai, to arriving at the borders of the Promised Land. Moses, the leader that he is, chastises the people for not reaching their full potential and teaches them how to achieve the dream. Moses speaks of the eternal heritage, recalls justice, and how the new generation will enter the Land. Moses speaks of the dark enemies of light and how we may overcome the darkness with our light. And of how Joshua shall succeed to continue leading the people into the Holy Land.
