Parsha in 60 Seconds Presents Vezot Haberakhah

Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds
Today’s portion is from Deuteronomy 33:1–34:12 it is called Vezot Haberakhah which means “and this is the blessing,.”

Before Moses died he bade the Israelites farewell with a long detailed blessing. Moses prayed that the Tribe of Reuben survive, though its numbers were few. That Judah would be restored and helped against its foes. That the Levites would have substance, favor their undertakings, and smite their enemies. Benjamin would continue to rest securely beside God, between God’s shoulders. Joseph to have good harvest. Zebulun to rejoice on its journeys, and Issachar in its tents. Gad like a lion who executed God’s judgments for Israel. Dan like a lion’s whelp that leap from Bashan. Naphtali to take possession on the west and south. Asher to be the favorite among the tribes, dip its feet in oil, and have door bolts of iron and copper and security all its days. Moses than praised God for being a mighty protector like no other.
At 120 years old, Moses climbed a mountain saw the land and died. The Israelites mourned for 30 days and Joshua filled with God’s spirit became their leader. Never again did a prophet like Moses arise, who spoke face to face with God.
And that is Vezot Haberakhah in 60 seconds.
