Parshah Re’eh (HaAdamah)

dust of the ground – a little word study –

Deuteronomy Chapter 12.1

“These are the statutes and ordinances that you shall keep to perform in the land which the Lord God of your fathers gives you to possess all the days that you live on ha’adamah.”

“An altar of Adamah shall you make for Me….” Shmoth (Exodus) 20.20 This passuk connects “the place of Adam’s creation, (B’rashith – Genesis 2.7, 3.19) with the Place which HaShem chose….” (Devarim – Deuteronomy 12.5, 1 Chronicles 21.22-22.1, Note 26: “He answered him from heaven by fire” and 22.1: Then David said: ‘This is the house of the L-RD G-D, and this is the altar of burnt-offering for Israel.’)

  1. Devarim 7.6, “For thou art a holy people unto the L-RD thy G-D: the L-RD thy G-D hath chosen thee to be His own treasure, out of all peoples that are upon the face of haAdamah”. 7.13, “and He will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee; He will also bless the fruit of thy body and the fruit of admahtheecha, thy corn and thy wine and thine oil, the increase of thy kine and the young of thy flock, in haAdamah which He swore unto thy fathers to give thee.” 21.23 “his body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt surely bury him the same day; for he that is hanged is a reproach unto G-D; that thou defile not admathcha which the L-RD thy G-D giveth thee for an inheritance.”; Shmoth 23.19, “The choicest first-fruits of admathcha thou shalt bring into the house of the L-RD thy G-D. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in its mother’s milk.”
