DEUTERONOMY 16-19
DAY 324: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Continuing our journey through the final book of law, Deuteronomy, Moses continues to remind the Israelites of how they are to behave in the Promised Land.

Before reading Deuteronomy 16-19, pray for understanding of today’s reading. Read Deuteronomy 16-19. Let’s journey!

Deuteronomy is the fifth and final book of the Jewish Torah and concludes the Books of Moses in the Christian Old Testament. As with the previous four, Moses wrote this book, which retells many of the events recorded in the previous books. Its purpose is the help guide the new generation that was preparing to enter the Promised Land. It is a reminder to the new generation to remain faithful to the covenant made between the Israelites and God.

Deuteronomy 16-19: Moses reminds the Israelites of the celebrations they are hold and their importances. Moses reviews the importance of judges, courts of laws, and kings. Moses also stresses, again, the importance of remaining focused on the Lord. The Levitical priests have been set aside. Moses warns against occult practices and false prophets. Moses restates the importance of cities of refuge and witnesses. (Deuteronomy 16:1-19:21)

After you finish today’s reading, take some time and consider the following: Why would Moses recount this part of the Israelite’s journey? What can be learned from it? Stop and reflect upon your personal journey. What lessons have you learned? What lessons do you need to remember?
