I entitled this Bible Study: Deuteronomy ch 27: “Cursed be the one who perverts the rights of the convert, the fatherless, and the widow.—And all the people shall say, Amen.”

…Why?

I am glad you asked….

I can’t pretend to understand the bigotry that exists in the world. I especially cannot claim to understand the hatred, bigotry, and segregation that sadly persists even today within one’s own culture, community, race, or religious institutions. Hatred towards one’s fellow human beings seems to prevail and has been passed down from generation to generation as a cancer that destroys communities and sabotages any opportunity for unity.

In this Bible Study, I will aim to identify and provide examples of what, based on Torah Law, brings about curses and blessings. This will be a sort of pre-unveiling of the discussion on blessings and curses before delving into the character of Deuteronomy Chapter 28. We will go into further detail on what living with active curses in one’s life, city, or nation looks like, and how to spiritually remove curses.

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:

Why 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:

  1. A commandment of the Jewish law.
  2. The fulfillment of such a commandment.
  3. 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.
Oleh continues:
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!

This Bible Study I have continued to use 

Deuteronomy 27 version of chumash :  The Schocken Bible, Everett Fox, 1995.

Portion of a Portion: Devarim ch 27:1-10

Now Moshe and the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying:
Keep all this commandment that I command you today! And it shall be:

at the time that you cross the Jordan
into the land that YHWH your God is giving you,
you are to set up for yourself great stones
and are to plaster them with plaster; you are to write on them all the words of this Instruction, when you cross over,
in order that you may enter the land that YHWH your God is giving you,
a land flowing with milk and honey,
as YHWH, the God of your fathers, promised you. Now it shall be, on your crossing the Jordan:
set up these stones
about which I command you today, on Mount Eval,
and plaster them with plaster. You are to build there an altar to YHWH your God,
an altar of stones;
you are not to swing against them [any] iron. Of complete stones you are to build the altar of YHWH your God;
you are to offer-up on it offerings-up to YHWH your God. [When] you sacrifice shalom-offerings, you may eat [them] there,
and you are to rejoice
before the presence of YHWH your God. And you are to write on the stones
all the words of this Instruction,
explained well. Now Moshe and the Levitical priests spoke
to all Israel, saying:
Be silent and hearken, O Israel:
this day you are becoming a people to YHWH your God. You are to hearken to the voice of YHWH your God,
you are to observe his commandments and his laws that I command you today!

Commentary :

By chance, I found the article below by Steve Law | February 4, 2022, which reviews found evidence that the plastered walls are prone to cracks. I have provided the links for others in case they would like to read it.

ANCIENT HEBREW WRITING ON TABLET DISCOVERED AT JOSHUA’S ALTAR

Portion of a Portion: Devarim ch 27:11-26

And Moshe commanded the people at that time, saying: These you are to stand to bless the people, on Mount Gerizim,
when you have crossed the Jordan:
Shim’on, Levi, and Yehuda,
Yissakhar, Yosef, and Binyamin. And these you are to stand for the curse, on Mount Eval:
Re’uven, Gad, and Asher,
Zevulun, Dan, and Naftali. And all the Levites are to speak up and say to every man of Israel,
[with] voice raised:

Damned be the one
who makes a carved-image or molten-thing, an abomination to YHWH,
made by the hands of an engraver,
and sets [it] up in secret!
And all the people are to speak up and say: Amen!

Cursed be
he who insults his father or his mother!
And all the people are to say: Amen! Cursed be
one moving back the territory-marker of his neighbor!
And all the people are to say: Amen!

Cursed be
one leading-astray a blind-person in the way!
And all the people are to say: Amen! Cursed be
one casting aside the case of a sojourner, an orphan, or a widow!
And all the people are to say: Amen!

Cursed be
one lying with the wife of his father,
for he has exposed the skirt of his father!
And all the people are to say: Amen! Cursed be
one lying with any animal!
And all the people are to say: Amen! Cursed be
one lying with his sister,
the daughter of his father or the daughter of his mother!
And all the people are to say: Amen! Cursed be
one lying with his mother-in-law!
And all the people are to say: Amen!

Cursed be
one strikes down his neighbor in secret!
And all the people are to say: Amen! Cursed be
one taking a bribe,
[thus] striking down a life [through] innocent blood!
And all the people are to say: Amen!

Cursed be
he who does not fulfill the words of this Instruction, to observe them!
And all the people are to say: Amen!

Commentary :

I did my best to group the verses into what seems to be sections or categories for curses. There is a section for curses related to sexual perversions, aiming to inflict harm, promote injustice, pray on the underprivileged or vulnerable, to name a few.

As I mentioned earlier in this blog post, I can’t claim to understand the prejudice that exists in the world. I particularly cannot comprehend the hatred, prejudice, and segregation that unfortunately continues to persist even today within one’s own culture, community, race, or religious institutions. Hatred towards fellow human beings appears to prevail and has been passed down from generation to generation like a destructive force that undermines communities and sabotages any chance of unity.

I have also recently experienced being singled out and persecuted by other members of my own religion. It’s painful, it hurts, it’s sad and frustrating. I truly believe racism is a generational curse. Behind racism is hatred and fear, and perhaps the highest degree of insecurity in one’s place in the world.

Why else would one seek to harm, shame, or dismiss, or belittle another… except for insecurity? I have never seen or met a truly happy, joyful, secure, confident person who goes around treating others in a vile, disgusting manner, in any degree, even on their worst day.

So what can be done about the hatred, bigotry, and segregation that sadly persists even today within one’s own culture, community, race, or religious institutions?

I intend to stand my ground, blessings are reserved for those who don’t harm others, engage in sexual perversion, or inflict harm and injustice, praying on the underprivileged or helpless. I will make every deliberate effort not to be a savage person committing such cursed acts. I seek blessings. I aspire to love others purely and wholly in accordance with the Torah. I want to succeed and witness the success of others while helping them along their journey. I desire to stand before the One and Only Living G-d and say, “My Lord, I am aware of my imperfections, but I promised to strive and live according to Your 613 commandments. I hope I have made You proud with my love for You.”

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 AmenSay it again for the people in the back!

OAmein and OAmein

Blessings after reading the Torah.
Boruch atoh ado-noy elo-haynu melech ho-olom, asher nosan lonu toras emes, v’cha-yay olom nota b’sochaynu. Boruch atoh ado-noy , nosayn ha-toroh.

Blessed are You, L-rd our G-D, King of the universe, who has given us the Torah of truth and planted eternal life within us. Blessed are You L-rd, who gives the Torah.

friendly reminder: 

Haftara this portion isYeshayahu (Isaiah) Chapter 60

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has shone upon you.
2For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and a gross darkness the kingdoms, and the Lord shall shine upon you, and His glory shall appear over you.
3And nations shall go by your light and kings by the brilliance of your shine.
4Lift up your eyes all around and see, they all have gathered, they have come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be raised on [their] side.
5Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall be startled and become enlarged, for the abundance of the west shall be turned over to you, the wealth of the nations that will come to you.
6A multitude of camels shall cover you, the young camels of Midian and Ephah, all of them shall come from Sheba; gold and frankincense they shall carry, and the praises of the Lord they shall report.
7All the sheep of Kedar shall be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth shall serve you; they shall be offered up with acceptance upon My altar, and I will glorify My glorious house.
8Who are these that fly like a cloud and like doves to their cotes?
9For the isles will hope for Me, and the ships of Tarshish [as] in the beginning, to bring your sons from afar, their silver and their gold with them, in the name of the Lord your God and for the Holy One of Israel, for He has glorified you.
10And foreigners shall build your walls, and their kings shall serve you, for in My wrath I struck you, and in My grace have I had mercy on you.
11And they shall open your gates always; day and night they shall not be closed, to bring to you the wealth of the nations and their kings in procession.
12For the nation and the kingdom that shall not serve you shall perish, and the nations shall be destroyed.
13The glory of the Lebanon shall come to you, box trees, firs, and cypresses together, to glorify the place of My sanctuary, and the place of My feet I will honor.
14And the children of your oppressors shall go to you bent over, and those who despised you shall prostrate themselves at the soles of your feet, and they shall call you ‘the city of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel.’
15Instead of your being forsaken and hated without a passerby, I will make you an everlasting pride, the joy of every generation.
16And you shall suck the milk of nations and the breast of kings you shall suck, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17Instead of the copper I will bring gold, and instead of the iron I will bring silver, and instead of the wood, copper, and instead of the stones, iron, and I will make your officers peace and your rulers righteousness.
18Violence shall no longer be heard in your land, neither robbery nor destruction within your borders, and you shall call salvation your walls and your gates praise.
19You shall no longer have the sun for light by day, and for brightness, the moon shall not give you light, but the Lord shall be to you for an everlasting light, and your God for your glory.
20Your sun shall no longer set, neither shall your moon be gathered in, for the Lord shall be to you for an everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be completed.
21And your people, all of them righteous, shall inherit the land forever, a scion of My planting, the work of My hands in which I will glory.
22The smallest shall become a thousand and the least a mighty nation; I am the Lord, in its time I will hasten it.Shout, O infertile one,
You who bore no child!
Shout aloud for joy,
You who did not travail!
For the children of the wife forlorn
Shall outnumber those of the espoused
—said GOD.
Enlarge the site of your tent,
Extend the size of your dwelling,
Do not stint!
Lengthen the ropes, and drive the pegs firm.
For you shall spread out to the right and the left;
Your offspring shall dispossess nations
And shall people the desolate towns.
Fear not, you shall not be shamed;
Do not cringe, you shall not be disgraced.
For you shall forget
The reproach of your youth,
And remember no more
The shame of your widowhood.
For the One who made you—whose name is “ GOD of Hosts”—
Will espouse you.
The Holy One of Israel—who is called “God of all the Earth”—
Will redeem you.
GOD has called you back
As a wife forlorn and forsaken.
Can one cast off the wife of his youth?
—said your God.
For a little while I forsook you,
But with vast love I will bring you back.
In slight anger, for a moment,
I hid My face from you;
But with kindness everlasting
I will take you back in love
—said GOD your Redeemer.
For this to Me is like the waters of Noah:
As I swore that the waters of Noah
Nevermore would flood the earth,
So I swear that I will not
Be angry with you or rebuke you.
For the mountains may move
And the hills be shaken,
But my loyalty shall never move from you,
Nor My covenant of friendship be shaken
—said GOD, who takes you back in love.

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 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’AmeinA 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.I have been using the minds.com account and Rumble (Live Bible Study video Post: Rumble  )as main accounts.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,Marie
