𝐏𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐢𝐭𝐥𝐞: Lech-Lecha, Lekh-Lekha, or Lech-L’cha (לֶךְ-לְךָ leḵ-ləḵā — Hebrew for “go!” or “leave!”, literally “go for you” — the fifth and sixth words in the parashah) is the third weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual cycle of Torah reading. It constitutes Genesis 12:1–17:27. The parashah tells the stories of God’s calling of Abram (who would become Abraham), Abram’s passing off his wife Sarai as his sister, Abram’s dividing the land with his nephew Lot, the war between the four kings and the five, the covenant between the pieces, Sarai’s tensions with her maid Hagar and Hagar’s son Ishmael, and the covenant of circumcision (brit milah).

𝐑𝐞𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: Abraham and Sarah were commanded to Go! To leave everything they knew to follow Adonai. Often I have found in a journey especially while traveling that Yahweh will speak to us in and through the journey.
