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 of 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:
In this Bible Study we will be going over: Devarim (Deuteronomy) chapter 20.
I entitled this Bible Study…
Devarim chapter 20:
“….HaShem, your G-d, marches with you to do battle for you with your enemies to save you.’
That’s a great question, I am glad you asked.
I think sometimes we tend to forget that HaShem is our G-D, but not only is HaShem our G-D… HaShem is the Glorious G-D for all those who love Him and know Him by name. G-d is even the G-d of those who look , act, speak, think, and live (to name a few)… nothings like us or near us. Everyone who calls out to Him in disappear, He hears them from Heaven to deliver them.
Merciful wonderful HaShem, Blessed be His Name, has always set up a way for each and everyone of His people to be His people and Him their G-D. Merciful HaShem, has also a way to return if mistakes are made. ALLLLLLLL of us….even the heathens or non-observant.
We are taught this most certainly for us, unfortunately sometimes we can tend to forget that HaShem meant these verses… in fact all verses in the Torah and Tanakh, for all……… yes all HIS children and creations.
Merciful HaShem, also set standards of conditions and code of conduct, in order for His presence, grace, mercy, and protection to be among and with His Children and their children’s children forever.. It is when we fall short willfully and intentionally, issues or consequence before and upon us (G-d forbid). Those consequence not only affect us, but others… Jew and non-Jew, righteous and unrighteous. Others who we may not even know and have never met are negatively or positively affected by our actions or non-actions. We are all connected, and therefore must all do our part according to HIS word…. Torah…..while here on this earth, for the Glory of the Only Living G-d.
Blessed be His Name.. forever and ever Amen.
Let’s continue on..
What to expect this Bible Study?
We have not fully returned to a full schedule, but I would like to ease into Season 6…..therefore we will be calling this part of the Season 5.5… hahahahahaha!
It will not be a full schedule, but at least we have the warm up, because summer isn’t hot enough… right?!?!
But, once we get rockin and rollin……
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.
(Moving on to the Bible Study section)
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.

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 Chapter 20: Verses 1 thru 9
When you go to war against your enemy, and you see horse and chariot, people who outnumber you; do not be afraid of them, for Adonoy, your God, is with you, He Who brought you up from the land of Egypt.
Commentary: G-d Almighty, commands us a couple of things when we are facing battles that He has sent us out to endure or over come.
- Dont’ fear.
- Some soldiers may be excempt from battle, but not from service.
- Offer peace to your enemies, but don’t become friend or family with them.
- Don’t destroy anything useful while in battle or in rage of war.
verses 5 thru 9 :
The officers will address the people as follows, ‘‘Whichever man has built a new house and did not inaugurate it as a dwelling, let him go and return home lest he die in battle and another man will inaugurate it.
And whichever man has planted a vineyard and did not redeem it[s fruit,] let him go and return home, lest he die in battle and another man redeem it.
And whichever man has betrothed a woman and not married her, let him go and return home, lest he die in battle and another man marry her.’’
The officers will further address the people and say. ‘‘Whoever is afraid or faint hearted, let him go and return home, and let him not destroy the resolve of his brothers like his own resolve.’’
When the officers finish addressing the people; they will appoint army commanders at the head of the people.
G-d in His loving kindness, gives us many ways to be of service, not only to Him but others including to the Nation of Israel.
Not every member is made for war or battle.
Even if a soldier is made for war and approved for battle, the soldier will not often times face the same dangers as another soldier.
We all have a purpose in G-d’s Army.
We all have been designed and approved for certain missions, causes, falls, and raises.
The key to the successful outcome is for us to ensure we are doing our bet to remain righteous before G-d and do His will, as He commands.
Devarim ch 20 verses 10-17
When you near a city to do battle against it, you are to offer it peace.
Should it respond, ‘‘Peace!’’ and open for you, then all the people found in it will become your payers of tribute, and your servants.
And if it does not settle for peace with you but engages in war against you, you shall lay siege to it.
Adonoy, your God, will deliver it into your hand, and you will smite all its males by the sword.
However, the women and the children, and the animals, and everything that will be in the city—all its booty—are you to plunder for yourself; you will eat the booty of your enemies that Adonoy, your God, gave you.
So will you do to all the cities, that are very distant from you, that are not among the cities of these nations.
However, from the cities of these peoples that Adonoy, your God, is giving you as inheritance, you are not to leave any person alive.
Rather annihilate are you to annihilate them: the Chittites and the Emorites, the Canaanites and the Perizites, the Chivites and the Yevusites; as Adonoy, your God, commanded you.
We went over the mentioned Canaanite tribes and clans in the video hyper linked below.
I will review during the uploading video for this Bible Study.
For those who would like a recap, please click on the link.
In the name of false peace, many of us have remained silent when evil is done or witnessed. In the name of not wanting to get involved for to be bothered, we have over looked wrongs done to others or even ourself. In trying to avoid an argument or embarrassment, we have gone along with acts, or words, , or lifestyles we know good and well are completely against G-d and Torah…. why?
We have been clearly commanded by almighty G-d, this shall not be done. And, we are further comforted that if we remain faithful and true to G-d in life and mind and actions, not only shall we be Victorious, but G-d Himself will fight for us against our enemies!
Devarim chapter 20 verses 19 thru 20
If you besiege a city many days to wage war against it, to capture it, do not harm [any of] its trees by chopping it with an ax, because you eat from it you are not to cut it down; For, is the tree in the field a man to join the besieged to escape you?
Only a tree that you know that it is not a fruit tree may you harm or cut down; and you will build battlements against the city that is waging war against you until it is conquered.
Even during war or battle, G-d, wants us to remember He is our G-d, and we are His children… we should always maintain control especially knowing we shall all one day answer to the one and only true living G-d.
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!

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:
“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 6 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 Bible Study Blogs portion of the website.
3. After Live Bible Studies have completed: I will upload to Rumble and Youtube, 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 with me … I shall not be afraid!!!!!
Blessings and Prayers.
