Reading the Bible Very Slowly : Eikev, עֵקֶב (As a result), Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25

+ Attending

Eikev, Ekev, Ekeb, or Eqeb (עֵקֶב — Hebrew for “if [you follow],” the second word, and the first distinctive word, in the parashah) is the 46th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the third in the book of Deuteronomy. It comprises Deuteronomy 7:12–11:25. The parashah is made up of 6,865 Hebrew letters, 1,747 Hebrew words, and 111 verses, and can occupy about 232 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah).[1]

Jews generally read it in August.

The parashah tells of the blessings of obedience to God, directions for taking the land, the incident of the Golden Calf, Aaron’s death, the Levites’ duties, and exhortations to serve God.
