5:1 Fourth Reading
Moses summoned all Israel, and said to them:

Listen, Israel, to the rules and laws that I am publicly declaring to you today. Learn them and safeguard them, so that you will be able to keep them.
Vayikra Moshe el-kol-Yisra'el vayomer alehem shma Yisra'el et-hachukim ve'et-hamishpatim asher anochi dover be'ozneychem hayom ulemadetem otam ushmartem la'asotam.

5:2 God your Lord made a covenant with you at Horeb.
Adonay Eloheynu karat imanu brit beChorev.
5:3 It was not with your ancestors that God made this covenant, but with us - those of us who are still alive here today.
Lo et-avoteynu karat Adonay et-habrit hazot ki itanu anachnu eleh poh hayom kulanu chayim.
