Haftarah Portion for 08/05/2023


Triennial Haftarah Portion for 08/05/2023



Yahweh is going to make the earth empty and waste, scattering its inhabitants. Everyone, from priests to servants, will be affected. The earth will be completely empty and plundered because the people have transgressed the Torah and broken the covenant. As a result, a curse will consume the earth and its inhabitants will be punished. The earth will mourn and wither, and only a few people will be left. Isaiah, Chapter 24, verses 1-6 See, Yahweh is making the earth empty, and making it waste, and shall overturn its surface, and shall scatter abroad its inhabitants. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest, as with the servant, so with his master, as with the female servant, so with her mistress, as with the buyer, so with the seller, as with the lender, so with the borrower, as with the creditor, so with the debtor. The earth is completely empty and utterly plundered. For Yahweh has spoken this word, The earth shall mourn and wither, the world shall languish and wither, the haughty people of the earth shall languish. For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Torah, changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse shall consume the earth, and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned, and few men shall be left.
