Ekev 5781

This is Torah Talk for the week of July 25th, 2021

Deut. 10:12   And now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God demand of you? Only this: to revere the Lord your God, to walk only in His paths, to love Him, and to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and soul, 13 keeping the Lord’s commandments and laws, which I enjoin upon you today, for your good.

Why does this verse resemble Micah 6:8 — and what does that verse mean by הצנע לכת ‘walking humbly’?  Not everyone agrees that humility is what Micah is calling for.  The NJPS translation of Mic 6:9, plus some poetic parallelism, will give us a clue.
