And Moses commanded them, saying: "At the end of every seven years, at the appointed time in the s year of release, t at the Feast of Tabernacles,
"when all Israel comes to u appear before the LORD your God in the v place which He chooses, w you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing.
x "Gather the people together, men and women and little ones, and the stranger who is within your gates, that they may hear and that they may learn to fear the LORD your God and carefully observe all the words of this law,
"and that their children, y who have not known it, z may hear and learn to fear the LORD your God as long as you live in the land which you cross the Jordan to possess."

Know today that I do not speak with your children, who have not known and who have not seen the chastening of the LORD your God, His greatness and His mighty hand and His outstretched arm -
That the generation to come might know them, The children who would be born, That they may arise and declare them to their children.
That they may set their hope in God, And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments.
