SynopsisIn this passage, Moses writes down all of the laws that the LORD has handed down, and gives this written copy to the priests.
He commands them to read this law to the people every seven years, during the Feast of Tabernacles.
Assemble the people—men, women and children, and the aliens living in your towns—so they can listen and learn to fear the LORD your God and follow carefully all the words of this law. Their children, who do not know this law, must hear it and learn to fear the LORD your God as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess. (verses 12–13)
