This essay analyzes the narrative of Deuteronomy 31–32 as the alternation between two narrative strands: (1) the death of Moses and commission of Joshua, and (2) the writing and reciting of the Torah and song. This alternating structure culminates in a passage that harmonizes the two strands: 32:44-47. In light of this structure, with its emphasis on the and song, I suggest the concept of memorial, based on the text's use of the term (witness), as a heuristic description of the text.
