Continuing Moses’s farewell address to the Children of Israel, this week’s portion deals extensively with the legal system the people must establish when they enter the land. From courts to kings and priests to false witnesses and murderers, the portion details what God expects the people to do in each case.
The portion then goes on by instructing the people in proper procedures for war. It also details what should be done in the event of an unsolved murder.
