We study the Torah according to the triennial cycle every Sabbath (Why?), being aware of the teaching tools employed by Torah, and looking for them, so that we can get the message God is trying to convey.
Today is the 5th Sabbath of the triennial cycle: parashah (Torah portion) Noach / Noah, Gen 6:9-7:24 (read at Bible Gateway or the Hebrew Bible in English).
Additional readings for this week:
Prophet: Isa 54 / Psalm: Ps 5 / History: Job 9-10 / Gospel: Mat 24:29-51 / Apostolic: 1 Pet 3
Parsha (paragraph) divisions in this week’s Torah portion:
Gen 6:9-12 ends with a parsha stumah, a weak paragraph division.
Gen 6:13-8:14 ends with a stumah.
This means we will not get to the end of our second paragraph in this week’s reading.
