The seven aliyot readings from the Torah begin at these verses:

- Deuteronomy 8:11
- Deuteronomy 9:4
- Deuteronomy 10:1
- Deuteronomy 10:12
- Deuteronomy 11:10

(In this reading the maftir repeats the seventh aliyah.)
The sages say that Messiah himself, Avraham’s greatest seed, will establish and enlarge borders promised to Avraham and his seed (Genesis 15:18; Stone, p. 997, n24). Torah promises that the nation that cleaves to God will inherit the Land. But it will be Messiah who brings the kind of obedience required to appropriate these grand promises.
