In Ki Tetze
The Key Person is Moshe (Moses), speaking to all Yisra’el (Israel).
The Scene is the wilderness east of the Promised Land, ready to cross over the Yarden (Jordan).
The Main Events include more of Moshe’s words: marrying women prisoners of war, rights of a firstborn, consequences of a rebellious son, miscellaneous laws, tsitsit, sexual purity, restrictions on joining the assembly, avoiding impurities, more laws about loans, vows, divorce, newlyweds, skin disease, poor people, business practices, and removal of Amalekites.
For Adonai your God walks in the midst of your camp, to rescue you and to give your enemies over to you. Therefore your camp must be holy, so that He does not see anything indecent among you and turn away from you.
(Deuteronomy 23:15 TLV)
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief, One from whom people hide their faces. He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our pains. Yet we esteemed Him stricken, struck by God, and afflicted. But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities. The chastisement for our shalom was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
(Isaiah 53:3-5 TLV)
The Brit Chadasha
It is actually reported that among you there is sexual immorality, and such immorality as is not even among the pagans—that someone has his father’s wife. And you are puffed up! Shouldn’t you have mourned instead, so that the one who did this deed might be removed from among you?
(1 Corinthians 5:1-2 TLV)
