Nitzavim (also spelled Nitsavim or Nitzabim) is a Hebrew word for "ones standing," and it is the second word, and the first distinctive word, in the parsha. Vayelech (also spelled as Vayeilech, VaYelech or Va-yelech) is a Hebrew word for "then he went out.” The quick overview of the parsha are as follows: Moses tells the Israelites that the L-RD’s covenant speaks to them and to all of the succeeding generations who will follow. The L-RD warns the children of Israel that they will be punished if they act idolatrously, the way the inhabitants of the other nations do. Moses reassures the assembled people that the L-RD will never forsake them and that they will receive blessings by following the commandments of the L-RD. Moses prepares the Israelites for his death and declares that Joshua will succeed him according to the L-RD’s command. Moses instructs the priests and the elders regarding the importance of reading the Torah and the cycle of its reading. The L-RD informs Moses that upon his death, the people will commit idolatry and "many evils and troubles shall befall them." G-D tells Moses to teach the people a poem that will "be My witness."
If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the L-RD thy G-d, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the L-RD thy G-d with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
