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 a new portion of Deuteronomy Portion of the Bible Study.
In this Bible Study we will be going over: Devarim (Deuteronomy) chapter 24.
*****All links are hyper linked for credit….. please use responsibly as the Divine Name, is used and spoken.*****
I entitled this Bible Study…
Devarim chapter 24: Help the poor, widow, and the orphan; this is a true Boaz
I am glad you asked….
Often times when Boaz, is spoken of he is dramatized as that prince charming who swoops in and rescues a poor widow and her mother-in-law from starvation. Ruth is faithful, Naomi is was and cunning, Orpah is rebellious and unfaithful, and converts make the best Jews… hahaha… I obviously added that last part in there.
But, in all seriousness, I want us to take a look at how a group of individuals lived out Torah not perfectly, but faithfully, and how Merciful HaShem, was with them all the way.
Let’s continue on..
What to expect this Bible Study. We have not 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.

2. Biblical Text Portion of Bible Study.
This Bible Study I have continued to use
Deuteronomy 24 version of chumash : The Schocken Bible, Everett Fox, 1995
The version is hyperlink for those who are interested in reading further or purchasing a hard copy of thier own directly from the website.
If a man finds out the woman (one who was supposed to be his helper and mate), whom he has found out to be involved in unrepented wickedness (witchcraft, sorcery, or a traitor/informer to enemy nations),… he has no high court’s provable facts, but is certain… thus the wife has a high possibility of bringing shame upon the nation and his name… he is to give her warnings. If those warnings of guidance in Torah are not heeded, the husband is to give his wife the final ultimatum… the bill of divorce and the now former wife is to be cut off from the tribe, his benefits, and inheritance of his tribe in Israel. The former husband will send her off with her provisions of life sustained or received during the marriage.
If then the former wife is able to marry another husband, and through her wickedness or neglect, or cause of grave sin… the new husband dies; the former husband is banned from receiving back the former wife.
Soul ties, perversity, and the death of the new husband was most likely due to the sin guilt of the former wife and new husband combined.
Devarim chapter 24 verse 5
Below I have provided the text of what a discussion from the Jewish courts looks like. It might be that many people have a negative assumption regarding Jewish law and its treatment of and towards women. I will go into further detail during the video lesson of the class, but I do believe the text shows that the goal of the courts is to first and foremost be loyal to the Laws of HaShem, The Holy One, and the Torah, and to the covenant of marriage. Only after these required basic fundamentals are met can human laws and emotions be considered.
I love reading these types of texts. I find the information and situations full of wisdom and on a higher level of spiritual insight and foresight. Wisdom I pray one day to achieve with hard work and determination.
An example of what a complicated divorce looks like in Judaism:
Question:A woman was divorced in the civil courts about a year ago. She has recently obtained a “get”. She wants to remarry, and the soldier she is to marry is about to go overseas. However, the prescribed three month interval between the Jewish divorce and intended re-marriage has not yet elapsed. Should we under war-time conditions waive this required period of waiting?
Answer:The purpose of the law requiring the three months interval between a divorce and marriage to another man is to establish the paternity of a child so that there should be no doubt whether a child born seven months after a second marriage is a seven month child of the second husband or a nine month child by the first husband. (See the discussion b. Yevomoth
42a.) If we consider merely the question of fulfilling the purpose of law, then we could decide that inasmuch as she has been civilly divorced and therefore separated from her first husband for a period of much longer than three months, the purpose of the law is fulfilled. If we so decide we would be taking the same stand as Rabbi Judah in the Tosefta Yevamoth VI, 6 where the discussion concerns a woman who was driven out of husband’s home and had gone home to her father’s house, etc. Rabbi Judah decides that she may be married at once to another man i.e., if she has been separated from her husband for a period longer than three months, she may be married at once after her divorce. Somewhat the same reasoning is back of the decision by Joseph Karo in the Shulchan Aruch Even Ha-ezer 13, I, when he decides that the three months must be counted from the day that the divorce is written even though the woman may not get the divorce for a considerable time afterwards, and the reason he gives for this decision is that they had not lived together after the divorce was written.
However, although in the case referred to our Committee the woman has been separated from her husband for a period longer than three months and has thus fulfilled the basic purpose of the law of waiting, she may not be remarried until three months have passed since the get, for the law is not according to Rabbi Judah who would permit her immediate marriage, but according to Rabbi Meir who forbids it. (See the Tosefta passage just quoted and b. Yevamoth
42b.) See also Be’er Hagolah to Shulchan Aruch Even Haezer 13,I.) In order to prevent carelessness with regard to the law in the case of a woman the paternity of whose child might be open to doubt if she married before the three month period, the rabbis have made a gezerah forbidding the second marriage before the three month interval, even for such women who would not have been physically intimate with their husbands during the period involved. In guiding our chaplains with regard to such marriages, we should follow the same principle which we have followed in a number of analogous decisions in the past, and ask the chaplain to consider the family background of the parties involved. If, for example, they are from a family belonging to a Reform synagogue which accepts the validity of civil divorce, they may be married. If they belong to a family of stricter observance which does not accept the validity of civil divorce, then the rabbinical law of divorce must be followed, including the requirement of a three month period of waiting for all women, no matter what their individual circumstances may be. In the specific case brought before the Committee, the fact that the woman received a “get” after having had a civil divorce is indication enough that either she or her former husband or the man that she is about to marry is Orthodox and, therefore, she should not be married until the full three month period has elapsed.
Question: A soldier intends to return home to marry his fiancee in the near future. This man was divorced by the State Government several years back and he gave his wife a “get”. He has no written evidence to show that he delivered a “get” to his wife. He does not even remember the name of the rabbi, nor the names of any of the witnesses. His estranged wife’s family furnished the rabbi and they will not give him any information. The soldier’s attorney was present at the time and he happens to know the date on which the “get” was written. This is the only information that the soldier has. Will an orthodox rabbi perform the wedding ceremony if the soldier cannot produce any written evidence that he gave a “get” to his first wife?(This responsum is not given as a decision by the CANRA but as information to the chaplains. In such a matter it is recommended that the chaplain consult a competent Orthodox authority.)
Answer:The Talmud in b. Baba Bathra 34b and 35a discusses the question of whether a man is believed if he says he divorced his wife and no other evidence is adduced. The conclusion which the Talmud comes to is that he is not believed with regard to her past status (l’mafraya) but is believed with regard to her present and future status (l’haba). That is to day, she cannot, merely on the basis of his statement, be considered to have been divorced from the date that he declared he gave her the divorce, but she can be considered divorced from now on; for if he wishes he could divorce her now. Therefore there is no reason to disbelieve his statement. However, Maimonides (Hil. Gerushin XII, 5) decides that he is not to be believed, and says that we should say to the man, “If you wish to divorce her, divorce her now.” Likewise, the Shulhan Aruch, Even Haezer 152,I, says that he is not believed if he make a statement that he divorced his wife but that the wife, however, is in the status of being dubiously divorced.
Thus the Talmud permits him to be believed about the future status of his wife; and while Maimonides says he is not to be believed, Maimonides evidently visualizes both husband and wife being present since he suggests that he should divorce her now. Joseph Karo acknowledges that the wife is in a state of dubious divorce. It is evident, therefore, that when her husband makes the statement that he has divorced his wife, he is to some extent believed. The particular case which Chaplain Buaman presents before us is not quite the same as the one dealt with in the Talmud and the codes. In the case before us we are not dealing with the status of the woman, which is always strictly construed, but rather with the status of the man, which is less strictly construed. Furthermore, in this case we do not rely entirely upon the mere declaration of the husband. The lawyer testifies that he was present at the divorce and knows the date on which the get was written.
Therefore we are not dealing with a case which is dependent entirely upon the man’s statement, but one in which “there is some report” of the divorce proceedings (Yesh lo kol). See Rashi to b. Baba Bathra 134b; also Ture Sahav to Even Haezer 152,I; and also Beth Shmuel ad loc. Therefore the man should be permitted to marry the woman to whome he is now engaged. It is urged at the suggestion of Dr. Jung that in such cases an attempt be made to discover who gave the “get”. The man involved, therefore, should give us his Hebrew name and the name of his former wife and an advertisement should be inserted in the Jewish Morning Journal (which is read by Orthodox rabbis) asking for information with regard to this particular divorce.
Devarim chapter 24 verse: 6
Taking away someone’s ability or tool to work and earn a respectable living is equal to sentencing someone to death. This is also linked with removing someone’s livelihood falsely, bearing false witnesses, stealing, and taking advantage of a person in need.
Some might think bullying or creating a hostile work environment isn’t equal to removing a millstone, although there are emotional millstones too. Millstones are not just physical, but spiritual. Removing or taking away positivity in someone’s life and creating an oppressive, hateful, cruel, or abusive environment of any kind can directly cause or indirectly contribute to removing someone’s will to live. Torah sees those evil actions as murder, whether they are committed firsthand, secondhand, or thirdhand.
Devarim chapter 24 verse 7:
If there are slave traders or kidnappers of non-Jews and/or only Jews within the territory of Israel, they are to be warned that those abominable attacks on a person are not allowed. If the person continues in their evil, they are to be stoned.
Devarim chapter 24 verses 8-9
Below are previous classes that we conducted here regarding tzaraat or leprosy.
Since the verse quote to remember the pain of even the Prophet Miriam when she chose to speak in slander against Moses, our Blessed Teacher, it is appropriate to review the Torah verses here.
Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman he had taken [into his household as his wife]: “He took a Cushite woman!” They said, “Has יהוה spoken only through Moses? Has [God] not spoken through us as well?” יהוה heard it.
Now Moses himself was very humble, more so than any other human being on earth. Suddenly יהוה called to Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the Tent of Meeting.”
So the three of them went out. יהוה came down in a pillar of cloud, stopped at the entrance of the Tent, and called out, “Aaron and Miriam!”
The two of them came forward; and [God] said, “Hear these My words: When prophets of יהוה arise among you, I make Myself known to them in a vision, I speak with them in a dream. Not so with My servant Moses; he is trusted throughout My household. With him I speak mouth to mouth, plainly and not in riddles, and he beholds the likeness of יהוה. How then did you not shrink from speaking against My servant Moses!” Still incensed with them, יהוה departed.
As the cloud withdrew from the Tent, there was Miriam stricken with snow-white scales!
When Aaron turned toward Miriam, he saw that she was stricken with scales. And Aaron said to Moses, “O my lord, account not to us the sin which we committed in our folly. Let her not be like a stillbirth which emerges from its mother’s womb with half its flesh eaten away!”
So Moses cried out to יהוה, saying, “O God, pray heal her!” But יהוה said to Moses, “If her father spat in her face, would she not bear her shame for seven days? Let her be shut out of camp for seven days, and then let her be readmitted.”
So Miriam was shut out of camp seven days; and the people did not march on until Miriam was readmitted. After that the people set out from Hazeroth and encamped in the wilderness of Paran.
Numbers ch 12: Sedation of Miriam and Aaron. When Loved ones betrayal is a sharp sword.
Devarim ch 24 verses 10-13
I love what the Midrash says about this verse. I want to introduce others to more and more of the Oral Laws in Orthodox Judaism. I am no expert, but I enjoy learning and growing…so let’s share and care!
Let’s go over a couple of definitions before we dive into the explanation of the text.
Oral Law, which every culture, household, workplace, establishment, functioning society, and every, and I do mean every, religion has.
A basic grade school explanation of Oral could be: “Interpretations”. The interpretation of the Oral Torah is thus considered as the authoritative reading of the Written Torah. Further, Halakha (lit. “The Path”, frequently translated as “Jewish Law”) is based on a written instruction together with an oral instruction.
What is Judaism: The Oral Law -Talmud & Mishna?
The Oral Law is a legal commentary on the Torah, explaining how its commandments are to be carried out. Common sense suggests that some sort of oral tradition was always needed to accompany the Written Law, because the Torah alone, even with its 613 commandments, is an insufficient guide to Jewish life. For example, the fourth of the Ten Commandments, ordains, “Remember the Sabbath day to make it holy” (Exodus 20:8). From the Sabbath’s inclusion in the Ten Commandments, it is clear that the Torah regards it as an important holiday. Yet when one looks for the specific biblical laws regulating how to observe the day, one finds only injunctions against lighting a fire, going away from one’s dwelling, cutting down a tree, plowing and harvesting. Would merely refraining from these few activities fulfill the biblical command to make the Sabbath holy? Indeed, the Sabbath rituals that are most commonly associated with holiness-lighting of candles, reciting the kiddush, and the reading of the weekly Torah portion are found not in the Torah, but in the Oral Law.
Summarizer The Tosefta is a collection of oral traditions related to Jewish oral law. It is a separate compilation of baraitot passages, organized in accordance with the order of the Mishnah, and contains interpretations of Judaic laws. The Tosefta is characterized as a text that provides explanation for murky sections of the Mishnah, its more dominant and well-studied counterpart. The Tosefta is much larger than the Mishnah and contains interpretations of Judaic laws that sometimes support the Mishnah but may also contradict its teachings. The explanatory notes are introduced with the word “Hosif” (“He has added” or “He has extended”). A sentence thus elucidated and completed was called a tosefta, this term being used not only for the additional notes only, but for the entire aphorism in its completed form
Now, that we have an understanding of Oral Law in Judaism… let’s read some text concerning the above verse, We can read in Tosefta Peah 3:13 the following:
Devarim chapter 24 verses 14-15:
Withholding righteous pay that a needy or not needed worker has earned is considered abusive, belittling, and shaming a worker. The Holy Blessed One, wants everyone to maintain a level of dignity. We are directed by Merciful HaShem, to always consider someone else’s feelings who might seem to be at a disadvantage. Not to say we look down on others, G-d forbid, but we are to ensure we never become an instrument of destruction to others’ day or emotional, financial, or religious well-being in Torah for Torah.
Devarim chapter 24 verse 16:
- Superior quality or worth; excellence.
- A quality deserving praise or approval; virtue.
- Demonstrated ability or achievement.
- There are positive or feel-good merits. There are also prickly merits or negative merits. We all earn, in each life, positive or negative merits on a daily, seasonal, annual basis, and so on, according to the justice of consequences under the Torah of HaShem. Some merits will earn us rewards of encouragement, meant to encourage and lift us up or show pleasure with HaShem. These merits are not always feel-good merits, as some might think. Negative or prickly merits, might actually be more motivational than positive pleasure merits. Obviously, our Father in Heaven knows what the best teachings and rewards are for each student of His children.
Devarim chapter 24 verses 17-18
To be or not to be a Boaz, that is the question.
I love older movie of the Bible, so here I am sharing this one. I haven’t watch this version. I actually might now that I have found it. For those who enjoy Biblical movies, I pray you enjoy.
Boaz fulfilled the commandments of this Bible study. I think it is a great lesson. Many focus on the love story of Boaz and Ruth, or the loyalty of Ruth, or the Naomi’s matchmaking wisdom, which are all great points. I, however, want to focus on the laws that were followed throughout the story of Ruth. So here we shall review the basic story of The Book of Ruth.
Devarim chapter 24 verse 19
Boaz was indeed blessed for his goodness and kindness, and obedience to HaShem. Throughout the story of the Book of Ruth, he not only was kind to Ruth and her mother-in-law, but also to others in the field. Those who were not wealthy most likely had no social influence and might have been orphans, widows, or escaped slaves.
Boaz, didn’t go around with his workers demanding to see everyone’s expulsion letter, or yellow star, or tattoos, or even their family tree; to verify if they were or were not Jewish.
Boaz, didn’t demand and question them being in town or his field, or even what synagogue they attended.
Boaz, simply provided the opportunity for God, in His glory, to work miracles – life-saving miracles through him each and every day, week, month, and season.
Wow! May we all be so blessed to truly be a Boaz in our lifetime.
Devarim chapter 24 verses 20-22
Meerciful, Wonderful, Glorious… HaShem… is the G-d of everyone!
I pray as we go out today and always… we remember this…
Let’s go and be a Boaz! For the glory of the one and only Living G-d!

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.
Proverbs 22: 4 thru 6The 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.
Ezekiel 18: 20 thru 22The 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. HaShem is my refuge, my strength, my confidant, and my true resting place.
Lastly, NEVER LOSE FAITH, Hope, and have Courage!!!! 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.
with Love truly,
Let US Begin!!!!
