27:6 Haba'im yashresh Yaakov yatzitz ufarach Yisrael umal'u fnei-tevel tenuvah.
[Days] are coming when Yaakov will take root; Yisrael will bud and blossom and fill the face of the earth like fruit.

7 Hakemakat makehu hikahu im-kehereg harugav horag.
Did He strike him as He struck those who struck him? Was he slain like the slaying of his [enemies]?

According to its measure [of sin] He contended against her farmland, stripping it with His harsh wind on the day of the east wind.

9 Lachen bezot yechupar avon-Yaakov vezeh kol-peri hasir chatato besumo kol-avnei mizbeach ke'avnei-gir menupatzot lo-yakumu asherim vechamanim.
Therefore, through this shall Yaakov's iniquity be atoned for, and this shall be the fruit of his sins' removal: When he makes all the altar stones like ground chalk stones, and Asherah-trees and sun-idols arise no more.

10 Ki ir betzurah badad naveh meshulach vene'ezav kamidbar sham yir'eh egel vesham yirbatz vekhilah se'ifeyha.
For the fortified city will be lonely, habitations depopulated and forlorn like the wilderness; there a calf will graze, there it will lie and consume its branches.

11 Bivosh ketzirah tishavarnah nashim ba'ot me'irot otah ki lo am-binot hu al-ken lo-yerachamenu osehu veyotzro lo yechunenu.
When its boughs wither they will break; women will come and set it aflame, for it is not a nation of understanding; therefore, its Maker will not show it mercy, and its Creator will not be gracious unto it.

12 Vehayah bayom hahu yachebot Hashem mishibolet hanahar ad-nachal Mitzrayim ve'atem teluktu le'achad echad benei Yisrael.

It shall be on that day that a great shofar will be blown, and those who are lost in the land of Assyria and those cast away in the land of Egypt will come [together], and they will prostrate themselves to Hashem on the holy mountain in Yerushalayim.

28:1 Hoy ateret ge'ut shikorei Efrayim vetzitz novel tzevi tif'arto asher al-rosh gei-shmanim halumei yayin.
Woe to the crown of pride of Efrayim's drunkards; the delight of his glory is a fading blossom; it is [like] a valley of oil upon the head of those battered by wine.

2 Hineh chazak ve'amitz l'Adonai kezerem barad sa'ar katev kezerem mayim kabirim shotfim hiniach la'aretz beyad.
Behold, my Master has a strong and powerful [wind], like a downpour of hail, a destructive tempest; like a downpour of mighty, surging waters He will lay [that crown] to the ground with [His] hand.

3 Beraglayim teramasnah ateret ge'ut shikorei Efrayim.
Trodden underfoot will be the crown of pride of Efrayim's drunkards;

and the withering blossom, the delight of his glory that is like a valley of oil upon [his] head, will be like a fig that ripens before summer: as soon as an observer sees it, while it is yet in his hand, he swallows it.

5 Bayom hahu yihyeh Hashem Tzevaot la'ateret tzvi velitzfirat tif'arah lishe'ar amo.
On that day, Hashem, Master of Legions, will be the crown of delight and a diadem of glory for the remnant of His people,

6 Uleruach mishpat layoshev al-hamishpat veligvurah meshivei milchamah sharah.
and a spirit of judgment for he who sits in judgment, and a source of strength for those who return from war to the gate.

7 Vegam-eleh bayayin shagu uvashechar ta'u kohen venavi shagu vashekhar nivle'u min-hayayin ta'u min-hashechar shagu baro'eh paku peliliyah.
For they, too, have erred because of wine and strayed because of liquor; the Kohen and the [false] prophet have erred because of liquor and were corrupted by wine; they have strayed because of liquor, erred in vision, perverted justice.

8 Ki kol-shulchanot male'u ki tzo'ah beli makom.
For all tables are full of vomit, filth, with no [clean] place.

9 Et-mi yoreh de'ah ve'et-mi yavin shemu'ah gemulei mechalav atikei mishadayim.
To whom shall one teach knowledge? To whom shall one explain a message? [To] those weaned from [mother's] milk, removed from the breasts?

10 Ki tzav latzav tzav latzav kav lakav kav lakav ze'eir sham ze'eir sham.
For it is commandment by commandment, commandment by commandment; line by line, line by line; a bit here and a bit there; so that they will go and stumble backward and be broken, and be tripped up and caught.

11 Ki bela'agei safah uvelashon acheret yedaber el-ha'am hazeh.
For as if with unintelligible speech and in another tongue does one speak to this nation.

12 Asher amar aleihem zot hamenuchah hanichu le'ayef vezot hamarge'ah velo avu shmoa.
Though he tells them, 'This is the [true] rest, "Give rest to the weary"; and this is the [true] satisfaction!' yet they would not consent to listen.

The word of Hashem shall befall them commandment by commandment, commandment by commandment; line by line, line by line; a bit here and a bit there; so that they will go and stumble backward and be broken, and be tripped up and caught.

Therefore, thus said Hashem, Who redeemed Avraham, to the House of Yaakov: Yaakov will not be ashamed now, and his face will not pale now,

23 Ki vir'oto yeladav ma'aseh yadai bekirbo yakdishu shemi vehikdishu et-kedosh Yaakov ve'et-Elokei Yisrael ya'aritzu.
when he sees his children, My handiwork in their midst, who will sanctify My Name, they will sanctify the Holy One of Yaakov and revere the G-d of Yisrael!

"Son of man, set your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt.

4 Venatati chachim bilchayeicha vehidbakti degat-yeoreicha bekaskesoteicha veha'aliticha mitoch yeoreicha ve'et kol-dgat yeoreicha bekaskesoteicha tidbak.
But I will put hooks in your jaws, and cause the fish of your rivers to stick to your scales; I will bring you up out of the midst of your rivers, and all the fish in your rivers will stick to your scales.

5 Untashticha hamidbarah otcha ve'et kol-degat yeoreicha al-penei hasadeh tipol lo te'asef velo tikavetz lechayat ha'aretz ule'of hashamayim netaticha le'ochlah.
I will leave you in the wilderness, You and all the fish of your rivers; You shall fall on the open field; You shall not be picked up or gathered. I have given you as food To the beasts of the field And to the birds of the heavens.

6 Veyad'u kol-yoshvey Mitzrayim ki ani HASHEM ya'an heyotam mish'enet kaneh leveit Yisrael.
Then all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am HASHEM, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Yisrael.

Son of man, Nevuchadretzar king of Babylon caused his army to labor strenuously against Tzor; every head was made bald, and every shoulder rubbed raw; yet neither he nor his army received wages from Tzor, for the labor which they expended on it.

Haftarah BeShalach
Shemot 4:4 - 5:31

4:4 UDvorah ishah nevi'ah eshet Lapidot hi shoftah et-Yisrael ba'et hahi.
Now Devorah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidot, was judging Yisrael at that time.

5 Vehi yoshevet tachat-tomer Dvorah bein haRamah uvein Beit-El behar Efrayim vaya'alu eleiha benei Yisrael lamishpat.
And she would sit under the palm tree of Devorah between Ramah and Beit-El in the mountains of Efrayim. And the children of Yisrael came up to her for judgment.

6 Vatishlach vatikra le-Varak ben-Avino'am mikedesh Naftali vatomer elav halo-tzivah HASHEM Elokei-Yisrael lech umashachta behar Tavor velakachta imcha aseret alafim ish mibenei Naftali umibenei Zevulun.
Then she sent and called for Barak the son of Avino'am from Kedesh in Naptali, and said to him, "Has not HASHEM G-d of Yisrael commanded, 'Go and deploy troops at Mount Tavor; take with you ten thousand men of the sons of Naftali and of the sons of Zevulun;

7 Umashachti eleicha el-nachal Kishon et-Sisra sar-tzva Yavin ve'et-richbo ve'et-hamono unetatihu beyadecha.
'and against you I will deploy Sisra, the commander of Yavin's army, with his chariots and his multitude at the River Kishon; and I will deliver him into your hand'?"

8 Vayomer eleiha Barak im-telchi imi vehalachti ve'im-lo telchi imi lo elech.
And Barak said to her, "If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go!"

9 Vatomer haloch elech imach efes ki lo tiheyeh tif'artecha al-haderech asher atah holech ki beyad-ishah yimkor HASHEM et-Sisra vatakom Dvorah vatelech im-Barak Kedshah.
So she said, "I will surely go with you; nevertheless there will be no glory for you in the journey you are taking, for HASHEM will sell Sisra into the hand of a woman." Then Devorah arose and went with Barak to Kedshah.

10 Vayaz'ek Barak et-Zvulun ve'et-Naftali Kedshah vaya'al beraglav aseret alfei ish vata'al imo Dvorah.
And Barak called Zevulun and Naftali to Kedshah; he went up with ten thousand men under his command, and Devorah went up with him.

11 VeChever haKeyni nifrad miKayin mibenei Chovav choten Moshe vayet aholo ad-elon beTza'ananim asher et-Kedesh.
Now Heber the Keyni, of the children of Chovav the father-in-law of Moshe, had separated himself from the Keyni and pitched his tent near the terebinth tree at Tza'ananim, which is beside Kedesh.

12 Vayagidu le-Sisra ki alah Barak ben-Avino'am har-Tavor.
And they reported to Sisra that Barak the son of Avino'am had gone up to Mount Tavor.

13 Vayaz'ek Sisra et-kol-richbo tesha me'ot rechev barzel ve'et-kol-ha'am asher ito meCharoshet hagoyim el-nachal Kishon.
So Sisera gathered together all his chariots, nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people who were with him, from Charoshet Hagoyim to the River Kishon.

14 Vatomer Dvorah el-Barak kum ki zeh hayom asher natan HASHEM et-Sisra beyadecha halo HASHEM yatza lefaneicha vayered Barak mehar Tavor va'aseret alafim ish acharav.
Then Devorah said to Barak, "Up! For this is the day in which HASHEM has delivered Sisra into your hand. Has not HASHEM gone out before you?" So Barak went down from Mount Tavor with ten thousand men following him.

15 Vayahom HASHEM et-Sisra ve'et-kol-harechev ve'et-kol-hamachaneh lefi- cherev lifnei Varak vayered Sisera me'al hamerkavah vayanos beraglav.
And HASHEM routed Sisra and all his chariots and all his army with the edge of the sword before Barak; and Sisra alighted from his chariot and fled away on foot.

16 UVarak radaf acharei harechev ve'acharei hamachaneh ad Charoshet hagoyim vayipol kol-machaneh Sisra lefi-cherev lo nish'ar ad-echad.
But Barak pursued the chariots and the army as far as Charoshet Hagoyim, and all the army of Sisra fell by the edge of the sword; not a man was left.

17 VeSisra nas beraglav el-ohel Ya'el eshet Khever haKeni ki shalom bein Yavin melech-Chatzor uveyn beit Chever haKeni.
However, Sisra had fled away on foot to the tent of Ya'el, the wife of Chever the Keni; for there was peace between Yavin king of Chatzor and the house of Chever the Keni.

18 Vatetze Ya'el likrat Sisra vatomer elav surah adoni surah elai al-tira vayasar eleiha ha'ohelah vatechasehu basmichah.
And Ya'el went out to meet Sisra, and said to him, "Turn aside, my master, turn aside to me; do not fear." And when he had turned aside with her into the tent, she covered him with a blanket.

19 Vayomer eleiha hashkini-na me'at-mayim ki tzameti vatiftach et-nod hechalav vatashkehu vatechasehu.
Then he said to her, "Please give me a little water to drink, for I am thirsty." So she opened a jug of milk, gave him a drink, and covered him.

20 Vayomer eleiha amod petach ha'ohel vehayah im-ish yavo ushe'elech ve'amar hayesh-po ish ve'amarta ayin.
And he said to her, "Stand at the door of the tent, and if any man comes and inquires of you, and says, 'Is there any man here?' you shall say, 'No.'"

21 Vatikach Ya'el eshet-Chever et-yetad ha'ohel vatasem et-hamakevet beyadah vatavo elav balat vatitka et-hayated berakato vatitznach ba'aretz vehu-nirdam vaya'af vayamot.
Then Ya'el, Chever's wife, took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went down into the ground; for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.

22 Vehineh Varak rodef et-Sisra vatetze Ya'el likrato vatomer lo lech ve'ar'eka et-ha'ish asher-atah mevakesh vayavo eleiha vehineh Sisra nofel met vehayated berakato.
And then, as Barak pursued Sisra, Ya'el came out to meet him, and said to him, "Come, I will show you the man whom you seek." And when he went into her tent, there lay Sisra, dead with the peg in his temple.

23 Vayakhna Elokim bayom hahu et Yavin melech-Kena'an lifnei benei Yisrael.
So on that day G-d subdued Yavin king of Kana'an in the presence of the children of Yisrael.

24 Vatelech yad benei-Yisrael haloch vekashah al Yavin melech-Kena'an ad asher hikhritu et Yavin melech-Kena'an.
And the hand of the children of Yisrael grew stronger and stronger against Yavin king of Kanaan, until they had destroyed Yavin king of Kanaan.

5:1 Vatashar Dvorah uVarak ben-Avino'am bayom hahu lemor.
Then Devorah and Barak the son of Avino'am sang on that day, saying:

2 Bifroa pra'ot beYisrael behitnadev am barechu HASHEM.
"When leaders lead in Yisrael, when the people willingly offer themselves, Bless HASHEM!

3 Shim'u melachim ha'azinu roznim anochi la-HASHEM anochi ashirah azamer la-HASHEM Elokei Yisrael.
"Hear, O kings! Give ear, O princes! I, even I, will sing to HASHEM; I will sing praise to HASHEM G-d of Yisrael.

4 HASHEM vetzetcha miSe'ir betzadcha misdeh Edom eretz ra'ashah gam-shamayim natafu gam-avim natfu mayim.
"HASHEM, when You went out from Seir, when You marched from the field of Edom, the earth trembled and the heavens poured, the clouds also poured water;

5 Harim nazlu mipnei HASHEM zeh Sinai mipnei HASHEM Elokei Yisrael.
The mountains gushed before HASHEM, this Sinai, before HASHEM Elokei of Yisrael.

6 Bimei Shamgar ben-Anat bimei Ya'el chadlu orachot veholchei netivot yelechu orakhot akalkalot.
"In the days of Shamgar, son of Anat, in the days of Ya'el, the highways were deserted, and the travelers walked along the byways.

7 Chadlu ferazon beYisrael khadelu ad shakamti Devorah shakamti em beYisrael.
Village life ceased, it ceased in Yisrael, until I, Devorah, arose, arose a mother in Yisrael.

8 Yivkhar elohim chadashim az lachem she'arim magen im-yera'eh varomach be'arba'im elef beYisrael.
They chose new gods; then there was war in the gates; not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Yisrael.

9 Libi lechokekei Yisrael hamitnadvim ba'am barechu HASHEM.
My heart is with the rulers of Yisrael who offered themselves willingly with the people. Bless HASHEM!

Far from the noise of the archers, among the watering places, there they shall recount the righteous acts of HASHEM, the righteous acts for His villagers in Yisrael; then the people of HASHEM shall go down to the gates.

12 Uri uri Dvorah uri uri dabri-shir kum Barak ushaveh shevyecha ben-Avino'am.
