Re'eh: “See”
Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17

The L-rd proclaims this day a curse or a blessing

Blessings shall shower down like rain
if the children of Israel follow the commandments

Like a path through the wood

And a curse if they stray in other directions

This path is holy

As the Creator G-d guides the sojourner
into the land of Mount Gerizim whose peaks
are blessed with G-d’s joy and wonder

Avoiding those of Mount Ebal
where rocky cliffs trip the wanderer

G-d guides His children toward the westward sun

Where there
in the land of Canaan
and crossing the banks of the Jordan

All dwell along welcome shores of a land
given this day by the L-rd our G-d
