Shalom Children of G-d!
Welcome back to Marie Speaks G-d’s Grace Bible Study.
This lesson we continue in second sermon of Moses’ of Blessed memory speech to the Nation of Israel before His death and the Nation of Israel carrying on into the Promise Land. This lesson we will review the portion the final Deuteronomy Portion of the Bible Study will be Torah Reading: Shoftim: Deuteronomy 16:18 – 21:9 with a reading of the Haftarah: Isaiah 51:12 – 52:12.
The next Portion of the Bible Study will be: Torah Reading: Ki Teitzei: Deuteronomy 21:10 – 25:19 with a Haftarah: Isaiah 54:1-10
In this Bible Study we will be going over: Devarim (Deuteronomy) chapter 16 verses 19 thru 22.
I entitled this Bible Study…Devarim chapter 16: Tell me something very good
Well.. this wonderful verse came to my heart #thankyouHaShem
Bereshit Genesis chapter 1 verse 31 Elohim saw all that He had made, and behold it was very good. It became evening and it became morning, the sixth day.
If only we could go back to the beginning of so many places in history.
If only we could take all the knowledge and wisdom we now have and do better.
Or would we give in to greedy and power with our new found advantage of possessing the knowledge of the future?
Would we commit unthinkable acts claiming to be wanting to do righteous ones?
Perhaps… perhaps we would sadly make things as if not more wicked then they are currently?
I know everything happens for a reason. And I believe I know everything has it’s time and cycle, but still….. I can’t help shake this feeling we have all lived these times before. And if so true… why .. why have we been doomed to relive these times again? Did we not pass whatever test or trial? Did we not successfully complete every mitzvah necessary to move forward or up or elevate to the next level of ascension?
We will this time?
It would be nice… in fact I am sure it would be … very good.
I believe this Bible Studies main concepts are:
- Laziness and compromise is wicked.
- Bribes turn the eyes blind and the heart to coal.
- When there seems to far more going for or with evil…one can and will stand up to do G-D’s Will (May the Master of Peace bring us healing and peace for us all and all of Israel. )
M’kor hab’racha l’imoteinu
May the source of strength
Who blessed the ones before us
Help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing
And let us say Amen
Mi shebeirach imoteinu
M’kor habrachah l’avoteinu
Bless those in need of healing with r’fuah sh’leimah
The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit
And let us say Amen
We will continue to increase in our intro Hebrew vocabulary, intro Hebrew terminology, Tanakh (the actual ….Jewish Bible.. that means no “new testament”) introduction, and Torah Spiritual Teaching.
I have added to the Blog news letter the Blessings Before and after reading the Torah.
Let’s get into…..
This week’s Jewish terminology word is: sefer
The JPS Dictionary of Jewish Words by Joyce Eisenberg, and Ellen Scolnic, 2001 copyright 1st edition; defines our Jewish terminology word of the week: a Hebrew word sefer as a noun pronounced as (SAY-fair) meaning book.

Blessings of the Torah:
Before we begin the Study of the Torah a Blessing is done. In saying the Blessing we are for filling a mitzvah and Blessing HaShem, of Glory and Truth’s beautiful Torah. A Mitzvah is defined basically as:
- A commandment of the Jewish law.
- The fulfillment of such a commandment.
- A worthy deed.
I, say these Blessings every morning during my morning prayers. And, to ensure I am not leading others into to improper practices, I want to ensure I repeat the Blessings of HaShem, Our Merciful Father’s Torah just incase others may not have yet had a chance today.
Blessings of the Torah:
Blessed are You, HaShem our God, King of the Universe, Who sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to be engrossed in the words of Torah.
HaShem our God, please make the words of Your Torah pleasant in our mouths and in the mouths of Your people Israel. And may we and our descendants [and the descendants of our descendants] and the descendants of Your people the House of Israel, all know Your Name and be students of Your Torah for its own sake. Blessed are You, HaShem Who teaches Torah to His people, Israel.
Blessed are You, HaShem our God, King of the Universe Who chose us from among all the peoples and gave us His Torah. Blessed are You, HaShem, Giver of the Torah!
Blessing before the reading of the Torah:
Bor’chu es ado-noy ha-m’voroch.
Bless the L-rd who is blessed.
Congregation and Oleh say:
Boruch ado-noy ha-m’voroch l’olom vo-ed.
Blessed be the L-rd who is blessed for all eternity.
Boruch atoh ado-noy elo-haynu melech ho-olom, asher bochar bonu mikol ha-amim, v’nosan lonu es toroso. Boruch atoh ado-noy, nosayn ha-toroh.
Blessed are You, L-rd our G‑d, King of the universe, who has chosen us from among all the nations and given us His Torah. Blessed are You L-rd, who gives the Torah.
Let us begin with today’s lesson!

2. Biblical Text Portion of Bible Study.
This Bible Study I have continued to use Metsudah Publications, 2009. The version is hyperlink for those who are interested in reading further.
Portion of a Portion:
Devarim (Deuteronomy) chapter 16 verses 19 thru 22.
Judges and police officers you shall appoint for yourself in all of your cities that Adonoy, your God, is giving you for your tribes; who will judge the people righteous justice.
Do not pervert justice; do not display favoritism; and do not accept bribery, for bribery blinds the eyes of the wise and distorts words that are just.
Pursue absolute justice so that you may live and inherit the land that Adonoy, your God, is giving you.
Do not plant an Asherah for yourself [or] any tree near the altar of Adonoy, your God, that you will make for yourself.
And do not erect for yourself a monument that Adonoy, your God, detests.
I don’t know what all pagan or idols worshiping places or temples look like, therefore I have to look up these places in order to know what to avoid. I am sure many of us might be in the same boat. For those who are like me and would like to look… this is a hyper link to pagan temples world wide. I am sure those are the only pagan temples ever existed, but I think the search photos may give us an item of what all to avoid.
Amen and Amen … #thankyouHaShem
Congratulations! you have made through another Bible Study! Sounds some Praise and Joy to Our Father who is in Heaven!
Glory to the One and Only Living G-D… HaShem!
I pray that everyone, everywhere, repents and returns to the only one who can save HaShem!
The True and Only Living G-d!
Receive Torah ….be back in the covenant of G-d.
Be at the Har Sinai say yes and be saved…….. the choice is yours.
Amen and Amen
Say it again for the people in the back!
OAmein and OAmein

Until next time, let us close with…..
The Priestly Blessing
And HaShem our G-D spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:
Yivarechecha Adonai viyishmirecha
Ya’er Adonai panav elecha veechuneka
Yeesa Adonai panav elecha viyasem lecha shalom
“The L-d bless you and keep you;
The L-d make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The L-d lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’
“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
In HaShem and HaShem’s alone Mighty Glorious Name.
Forever and Ever
O’Amein and O’Amein.

For those that are new to this Bible Study.
Welcome, the following is a brief review of this Bible Study.
1. This BLOG post will have the resources and sources links for the Season 5 Bible Studies .
2. All Books used and Readings from during Live Bible Study can be found on Our
Website: Marie Speaks GOD’s Grace. Live in the Season 5 portion of the website.
3. After Live Bible Studies have completed: I will upload to Rumble, and post link in this BLOG.
How we conduct Bible Studies here:
We believe in One and Only One G-D. HaShem; The G-D of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
We do not and will not Pray in any others name or Praise any other, but HaShem.
Exodus chapter 20: 2-14.
God spoke all these words, saying:
I the LORD am your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, the house of bondage:
You shall have no other gods besides Me.
You shall not make for yourself a sculptured image, or any likeness of what is in the heavens above, or on the earth below, or in the waters under the earth.
You shall not bow down to them or serve them. For I the LORD your God am an impassioned God, visiting the guilt of the parents upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generations of those who reject Me,
but showing kindness to the thousandth generation of those who love Me and keep My commandments.
We believe G-D has called each of us to search matters out.
(It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
And the glory of a king to plumb a matter.
Like the heavens in their height, like the earth in its depth, Is the mind of kings—unfathomable.. Proverbs 25:2 -3)
This is one reason why here at Marie Speaks G-D’s Grace Bible Study, we review several historical references and resources, of which we provide links and or screen shots for others to study at their leisure.
We have been directed by G-D Wonderful and Almighty, to go Book by Book, Verse by Verse; sharing HIS Torah and Tanakh.
We believe as directed by G-D Our Heavenly Father, learning and growing in Torah and Tanakh leads to understanding and wisdom; this shall only be achieved in reading, studying, and sharing HIS Word for ourselves; not relying on man.
Learning, growing, and studying with OUR L-D is to be done with others that are like minded, but more so during our personal time.
The BLOGs are written to assist those just beginning to study the BIBLE as a starting point. The Live or recorded Bible Studies are to cover and release opportunities and guidance, but ultimately is ones own personal responsibility to rule, govern, and be purposeful in their relationship with G-D.
The effect of humility is fear of the LORD,
Wealth, honor, and life.
Thorns and snares are in the path of the crooked;
He who values his life will keep far from them.
Train a lad in the way he ought to go;
He will not swerve from it even in old age.
The person who sins, he alone shall die. A child shall not share the burden of a parent’s guilt, nor shall a parent share the burden of a child’s guilt; the righteousness of the righteous shall be accounted to him alone, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be accounted to him alone.
Moreover, if the wicked one repents of all the sins that he committed and keeps all My laws and does what is just and right, he shall live; he shall not die.
None of the transgressions he committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness he has practiced, he shall live.
Is it my desire that a wicked person shall die?—says the L-d G-D. It is rather that he shall turn back from his ways and live.
May HaShem, Blessed be He continue to Bless us all and may we all be forever written in the Book of Life.
O’Amein and O’Amein
A little about me: I love HaShem, TORAH, and Tanakh!!!!! I am not perfect!!!!
If we meet: We talking about Torah, drinking tea or coffee, and what books are out about HaShem! And maybe over some kosher pizza… maybe over some kosher steak…make over super sweet kosher cake ……. have a fun laugh about you guess it… Torah! Or on a bike, or during a hike, or while riding on a train in the rain as the rain falls nicely on the plain in Spain….., but either way…..We’ll be talking about TORAH!!!!
What is import to me:……..A relationship with Our Father HaShem Our Merciful Creator, Savior, and Wise King. Live in Torah, live with Family and community of Tribe.
My thoughts: We may not be perfect, but we study, we learn, we laugh, & we grow; we try try and have the courage to try again.
My goals: To learn and grow and share Love of Torah in HaShem with others who are willing or open to hearing.
I have been using the minds.com account and
Rumble (Live Bible Study video Post: Rumble )
as main accounts.
Lastly, NEVER LOSE FAITH!!!!
Let’s continue to Fear and Love HaShem like a משיח and Pray.
PRAY FOR OUR NATION, enemies, fellows, and many lost Sons and Daughters of Torah to return to HaShem Blessed be He for ever and ever Amen.
HaShem IS ON THE MOVE!!!!!
Blessings and Prayers.
Let US Begin!!!!
