Covenant & Conversation

Eikev

Listen, Really Listen
When we speak, we tell others who and what we are. But when we listen, we allow others to tell us who they are.
It is through the word – speaking and listening – that we can have an intimate relationship with G‑d as our parent, our partner, our sovereign, the One who loves us and whom we love.
In Eikev Moses sets out a political doctrine of such wisdom that it can never become redundant or obsolete. He does it by way of a pointed contrast between the ideal to which Israel is called, and the danger with which it is faced.
