The parshah contains several thematic sections: regulations regarding the judicial system and public officials (judges, kings, Levitical priests, prophets true and false); special aspects of the judicial system (cities of refuge, property boundary markers, witnesses); rules for war; and dealing with unsolved murders.

Kavvanah /intention is an effort to “guide and regulate the individual in his performance of interior mental practice, a mode of action hidden from the public’s observation.” The pursuit of kavvanah , the effort to do one thing and be thinking about that one thing, is our own private work.
