We study the Torah according to the triennial cycle every Sabbath. (Why?)
We must understand the paragraph divisions in Torah, which are inspired by the Spirit and preserved by Moses and the Jewish scribes (but discarded by the English translators), are key to help us understand what God is trying to tell us. He wants to be understood, and has provided these helps to aid us! We must also understand how the Spirit teaches through Torah by common theme.
Today is the 138th Sabbath of the triennial cycle: parashah (Torah portion) Pesal Lecha /Carve for Yourself, Deu 10:1 – 11:25. Read Deu 10:1 – 11:25 at Bible Gateway, or Deu 10 and 11 from the Hebrew Bible in English.
Deu 7:12-16 ends with a parsha stumah, a weak paragraph division.
