There is a mitzvah to read the parsha of the week in preparation for every Shabbat - the Hebrew of each verse twice, and a translation or commentary of that verse once. I understand that the translation/commentary is necessary to increase (or simply achieve) understanding of the verse, but why do we need to repeat the verse?

    @MichaelSandler, nothing to be sorry about. Now we have a different expression of the question, so people googling for this question are more likely to find it. – Isaac Moses May 28 '13 at 19:30

My son asked me this question. I told him I don't know but my guess is that VeSheenantam which refers to Torah has a root that would perhaps suggest Shnayim - Two.
