 31:11
 31:12
31:11 when all Israel comes to present themselves before God your Lord, in the place that He will choose, you must read [from] this Torah before all Israel, so that they will be able to hear it.
Bevo chol-Yisra'el lera'ot et-peney Adonay Eloheycha bamakom asher yivchar tikra et-hatorah hazot neged kol-Yisra'el be'ozneyhem.
31:12 'You must gather together the people, the men, women, children and proselytes from your settlements, and let them hear it. They will thus learn to be in awe of God your Lord, carefully keeping all the words of this Torah.
Hakhel et-ha'am ha'anashim vehanashim vehataf vegercha asher bish'areycha lema'an yishme'u ulema'an yilmedu veyar'u et-Adonay Eloheychem veshameru la'asot et-kol-divrey hatorah hazot.

  According to tradition, the reading was Deuteronomy 1:1-6:9, 11:13-21, 14:22-28:69 (Yad, Chagigah 3:3; Lechem Mishneh ad loc.; Tosafoth Yom Tov, Sotah 7:8). Others say that it was Deuteronomy 1:1-6:9, 11:13-21, 14:22-27, 26:12-15, 27:11-28:69, 17:14-20.
