Parsha in 60 Seconds Presents Mishpatim

Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds

Today’s portion is from Exodus 21:1–24:18 it is called Mishpatim which means “laws”
God tells Moses to give the people the terms of the covenantal agreement. Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and 70 elders were invited by God to bow to God from afar.
Moses presented the word of the LORD to the people, who answered: “All the things that the Lord has commanded we will do!”

Moses then wrote the commandments down. He built an altar and young Israelites offered sacrifices. Moses read the covenant aloud to the people, who affirmed that they would follow it. Moses took blood from the sacrifices and dashed it on the people.
Moses and his crew then ascended the mountain, saw God, ate, and drank.
God told Moses to come up the mountain to receive the tablets of stone which contained the commandments.

Moses and Joshua arose, and Moses ascended Mount Sinai, leaving Aaron and Hur in charge. A cloud covered the mountain, hiding the Presence of the Lord for six days, appearing to the Israelites as a fire on the top of the mountain. Moses went inside the cloud and remained on the mountain 40 days and nights.

And that is Mishpatim in 60 seconds.
