There are 11 parshiyot in Sefer Devarim

Parashat Devarim - פרשת דברים - מאקאם חגאז

105 verses, with Haftara: Hazon Yeshayahou

Parashat Devarim is always read on the Shabbat before Tisha Be'Ab. The Shabbat is called Shabbat Hazon after the beginning phrase of the haftarah Hazon Yeshayahou ben Amos. In this parasha, we find Bnei Yisrael on the verge of entering Israel, receiving words of wisdom and rebuke from Moshe Rabeynou. He reminds the nation of the times they strayed from the path of Hashem, so that they remain steadfast in their religion. To some of these tribulations Moshe only hinted, while for others Moshe spoke about explicitly. The parasha ends with Moshe describing the great victories against Og and Sihon, building the nation's confidence to enter the land of Israel and defeat the nations there with Hashem help.

Parashat Vaethanan - פרשת ואתחנן - מאקאם חוסיני

118 verses, with Haftara: Yeshayah 40:1-26

The parasha opens with Moshe telling of how he had prayed to enter the land of Israel. Nevertheless, Hashem did not allow Moshe to enter the holy land. Instead, Moshe was only allowed to view the land from afar. The majority of the rest of the parasha is words of strength and responsibility that Moshe gives the nation, warning them not seek after other "gods" but rather stay loyal to the boreh. The parasha is also known for the ten commandments that are written in it, the second time in the Torah.

Parashat Eqeb - פרשת עקב - מאקאם שיגא

111 verses, with Haftara: Yeshaya 49:14 - 51:3
Contains 8 Misvot: 6 Misvot Aseh, and 2 Loh Taaseh

Warnings to remember and not forget G-d is the theme of Moshes speech in Perashat Eqev. G-d, the Creator, Sustainer of the living with kindness and the One who redeemed Bene Yisrael from Egypt, seeks a relationship with Bene Yisrael. In the context of this perasha, the word Eqev means result. Moshe tells Bene Yisrael what the results of their investment in a relationship with G-d would yield. Once again, Moshe reminds Bene Yisrael that G-ds commandments are for their benefit and in their performance; they are truly living life. G-d promises many blessings including the land of Israel. However, forgetting G-d would be a detriment for Bene Yisrael, Has Ve Shalom. This portion contains the second paragraph of Qeriat Shema appropriately relating the consequences in following or not following the commandments of G-d.

Parashat Reeh - פרשת ראה - מאקאם ראשט

126 verses, with Haftara: Yishaya 54:11-55:5
Contains 55 Misvot: 17 Misvot Aseh, and 38 Loh Taaseh

Be alert while you read this perasha! Reeh literally means pay attention. Pay attention when you enter the land and conquer it. The place that G-d chooses to dwell will be the place of service. It will not be as in the desert that wherever the people camped was the place of service. You will not serve in any random place you see rather in the place G-d chooses. {This is the same place G-d told Avraham to go with Yisshaq for the Aqeda. Avraham calls the place Hashem Yireh.Genesis 22:2-4, 9, 14}. In this place, you may bring your choice of the commanded offerings and rejoice with G-d. Do not eat the blood from the offering... spill it onto the land like water. Be conscious of the tribe of Levi because they dont have a portion in the land. Share with them. Be sensitive to the convert, orphan and widow and remember G-d took you out of Egypt. This perasha is a wakeup call to be aware. Moshe cautions Bene Yisrael of the false prophet or dreamer that sends messages to follow other gods. Do not believe them. G-d is sending them to test you. Are you following G-d and serving Him with all your heart (both inclinations) and soul? Pay attention with every verse and see what else we should be mindful of... Enjoy!

Parashat Ki Tesse - פרשת כי תצא - מאקאם צבא

110 verses, with Haftara: Yeshayahou 54:1-10
Contains 74 Misvot: 27 Misvot Aseh, and 47 Loh Taaseh

There is no where to even begin summarizing this parasha. Containing 74 Misvot in only 110 verses, Ki Tesse is loaded with details. Details about Ben Sorer OuMoreh are found in this parasha, the wayward son who does not listen to his parents, steals and acts in a way that the Torah commands us to kill him. The parasha continues with the laws of Hashavat Avedah, returning found items to their owners. There is no true way to summarize this parasha justly. One must read each verse and discover the world that awaits him.

Parashat Ki Tavo - פרשת כי תבא - מאקאם שיגא

122 verses, with Haftara: Yeshayahou 60:1-22
Contains 6 Misvot: 3 Misvot Aseh, and 3 Loh Taaseh

Ki Tavo is known for containing some of the Torah's worst curses that will befall upon Bnei Yisrael if they follow a life that does not balance in accordance with the Torah. The parasha also contains wonderful blessing on the opposite side, if Bnei Yisrael does follow a path of Torah, they shall be blessed in their comings and goings and blessings in all of their undertakings. These blessings and curses were to be recited once Bnei Yisrael entered Israel under the leadership of Yehoshoua, in a great ceremony. During this ceremony, half the tribes were to stand on one mountain, while the other half on an opposing mountain. The Leviim were to stand in the valley in between.
