About Deuteronomy chapter 1 verse 1:

The Book of Deuteronomy (from Ancient Greek: Deuteronómion, "second law"; Hebrew: Dev?r?m, "[spoken] words") is the fifth book of the Torah (a section of the Hebrew Bible) and the Christian Old Testament. The Hebrew title is taken from the opening phrase Eleh ha-devarim, "These are the words...". The English title "Deuteronomy" comes from the Greek deuteronomion, meaning "second law", taken from the Septuagint's (Greek) phrase to duteronomion touto, "this second law", in Deuteronomy 17:18. This Greek phrase is itself a mistranslation of the Hebrew mishneh haTorah hazoth, "a copy of this law".

Structure

Patrick D. Miller in his commentary on Deuteronomy suggests that different views of the structure of the book will lead to different views on what it is about.[5] The structure is often described as a series of three speeches or sermons (chapters 1:1–4:43, 4:44–29:1, 29:2–30:20) followed by a number of short appendices[6] – Miller refers to this as the "literary" structure; alternatively, it is sometimes seen as a ring-structure with a central core (chapters 12–26, the Deuteronomic Code) and an inner and an outer frame (chapters 4–11/27–30 and 1–3/31–34)[6] – Miller calls this the covenantal substructure;[5] and finally the theological structure revealed in the theme of the exclusive worship of Yahweh established in the first of the Ten Commandments ("Thou shalt have no other god before me") and the Shema.

Prayer of the Day

Prayer for All Saints Day

Lord, my God, help me to be holy.


Holy without reward,

Holy so as not to offend you,

Holy to better serve others.

Lord, today,

that we remember and celebrate the memory of all the Saints,

Help me to get closer to You.

I ask you to ask the Spirit,

Give me the gifts I need to be better.

Not because I deserve something,

But for my praise to come to You, fuller.

Lord, forgive me,

For my faults and sins,

For everything I could have done and did not do,

For everything that could have served and not served,

For all that I have wasted.

Give me your Blessing so that the rest of my life,

Be Faithful and Charitable,

Light of Yours and Server of All,

according to You ask me at every moment.

Thank you Lord for Your Mercy with me.

Amen
