Haftarat Re’eh

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 54:11 — 55:5

11O afflicted, storm tossed, unconsoled one, behold! I shall lay your floor stones upon pearls and make your foundation of sapphires. 12I shall make your sun windows of rubies and your gates of garnets, and your entire boundary of precious stones. 13All your children will be students of HaShem, and abundant will be your children’s peace. 14Establish yourself through righteousness, distance yourself from oppression for you need not fear it, and from panic for it will not come near to you. 15Behold! One need fear indeed if he has nothing from Me; whoever aggressively opposes you will fall because of you. 16Behold! I have created the smith who blows on a charcoal flame and withdraws a tool for his labor, and I have created the destroyer to ruin. 17Any weapon that is sharpened against you shall not succeed, and any tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn it; this is the heritage of the servant of HaShem, and their righteousness is from Me, the words of HaShem.

Chapter 55
1Ho, everyone who is thirsty, go to the water, even one who has no money; go buy and eat, go and buy without money and without barter, wine and milk. 2Why do you weigh out money for that which is not bread and the fruit of your toil for that which does not satisfy? Listen well to Me and eat what is good, and let your soul delight in abundance. 3Incline your ear and come to Me, listen and your soul will rejuvenate; I shall seal an eternal covenant with you, the enduring kindness promised to David. 4Behold! I have appointed him a witness to the regimes, a prince and a commander to the regimes. 5Behold! a nation that you did not know will you call, and a nation that knew you not will run to you, for the sake of HaShem, your G-d, the Holy One of Yisra’el, for He has glorified you!
