We solemnly and prayerfully remember the sobering tragedy of 9/11.
[This Firestarter is from the original version.]
Here is one of those verses that gather the entire Bible into one, as though seeing all the heavens reflected in the tiny piece of a mirror.
The tradition of the Scribes begins with verse 9, after God commanded Moses to write down the law. The Hebrew word for write is chatab, which means to “inscribe” or “engrave” on some material such as sheepskin. Thus, the scriptures have been preserved for 3,000 years. Remember how Jesus stopped Satan in his tracks when he responded to the temptations in the desert with quotations from Deuteronomy saying: “It is written …” (Cf. Matthew 4:1–11.)
The chapter closes with the “passing of the torch” to Joshua, and the importance of the song of Moses that comes in the next chapter.

that are read each year beginning with autumn.
