Va'eschanan Quiz Revisited

Last year I posted a va'eschanan challenge which my family tries every year - to locate the many pasukim [verses] from this parshah which have been incorporated into the prayerbook or elsewhere in the liturgy. Last year we came up with exactly ten (don't peek if you want to guess!), and I dared think that we might just have found them all. But this past Shabbos, I found an eleventh!

Here's a hint: It's somewhere in the first aliyah. Answer tomorrow, if nobody guesses.

Next year we go for an even dozen!

No takers, huh? OK then, the answer is:

3:24, the second pasuk of the parshah. Specifically, the latter part of that pasuk, "...asher mi Kail bashamayim...". This is found in the Selichos recited during Yomim Noraim and in Maariv of Yom Kippur, in the initial long paragraph of Selichos.

The "bashamayim u'va'aretz" part reminds me of Echad Mi Yodeah.
