"Deuteronomy" 1-11 is here presented in a groundbreaking new translation, with a comprehensive introduction and thorough commentary by world-renowned Israeli biblical scholar Moshe Weinfeld. The "second law," "Deuteronomy" portrays Moses as the founder and great lawgiver of Israel. In a series of addresses, Moses reviews his life and the life of God's people. He reminds them of the guiding hand of God, which has brought them thus far along the way, and will bring their Exodus and Wanderings to a triumphal conclusion in the Holy Land.Through a beautiful translation and insightful comments in this first of two volumes on "Deuteronomy", Weinfeld reinvigorates the basic laws of society with their life-giving power: the Shema ("Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One") and the Great Commandment ("You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might"). These laws govern Israelite religious and communal life under God's guidance.
