34:1 Seventh Reading
Moses climbed up from the western plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of the cliff facing Jericho. God showed him all the land of the Gilead as far as Dan,
Vaya'al Moshe me'arvot Moav el-har Nevo rosh hapisgah asher al-peney Yerecho vayar'ehu Adonay et-kol-ha'arets et-haGil'ad ad-Dan.
34:2 all of Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea,
Ve'et kol-Naftali ve'et-erets Efrayim uMenasheh ve'et kol-erets Yehudah ad hayam ha'acharon.
