Bible: Deut 31:9-13

The Deposit of the Covenant Text

31:9 Then Moses wrote down this law and gave it to the Levitical priests, who carry the ark of the Lord’s covenant, and to all Israel’s elders. 31:10 He 1  commanded them: “At the end of seven years, at the appointed time of the cancellation of debts, 2  at the Feast of Temporary Shelters, 3  31:11 when all Israel comes to appear before the Lord your God in the place he chooses, you must read this law before them 4  within their hearing. 31:12 Gather the people – men, women, and children, as well as the resident foreigners in your villages – so they may hear and thus learn about and fear the Lord your God and carefully obey all the words of this law. 31:13 Then their children, who have not known this law, 5  will also hear about and learn to fear the Lord your God for as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.”
