Ha’azinu – Torah In Haiku

Ha'azinu

God reminds Moses …
He’ll view the land from Nebo …
But will not enter —

Deuteronomy 32:48-52
That very day Adonai spoke to Moses: Ascend these heights of Abarim to Mount Nebo … You shall die on the mountain that you are about to ascend, and shall be gathered to your kin, as your brother Aaron died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his kin; for you both broke faith with Me among the Israelite people, at the waters of Meribathkadesh in the wilderness of Zin, by failing to uphold My sanctity among the Israelite people. You may view the land from a distance, but you shall not enter it—the land that I am giving to the Israelite people.
