Yeshayahu 66:1 - 66:25

~This Haftorah is not read on Shabbat Chanukah, on Shabbat Shekalim,
Shabbat Parashat HaChodesh, Parashat Masei and Parashat Reeh.~

{Maftir: BaMidbar 28:9-15}

66:1 Koh amar HASHEM hashamayim kis'i veha'aretz hadom raglai ei-zeh vayit asher tivnu-li ve'ei-zeh makom menuchati.
Thus says HASHEM:
"Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?

2 Ve'et-kol-eleh yadi asatah vayiheyu chol-eleh ne'um-HASHEM ve'el-zeh abit el-ani unechah-ruach vechared al-devari.
For all those things My hand has made, and all those things exist," Says HASHEM. "But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word.

3 Shochet hashor makeh-ish zove'ach haseh oref kelev ma'aleh minchah dam-chazir mazkir levonah mevarech aven gam-hemah bacharu bedarcheihem uveshikutzeihem nafsham chafetzah.
He who kills a bull is as if he slays a man; He who sacrifices a lamb, as if he breaks a dog's neck; He who offers a grain offering, as if he offers swine's blood; He who burns incense, as if he blesses an idol. Just as they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations,

4 Gam-ani evchar beta'aluleihem umegurotam avi lahem ya'an karati ve'ein oneh dibarti velo shame'u vaya'asu hara be'eynai uva'asher lo-chafatzti bacharu.
So will I choose their delusions, and bring their fears on them; because, when I called, no one answered, when I spoke they did not hear; but they did evil before My eyes, and chose that in which I do not delight."

5 Shim'u dvar-HASHEM hacharedim el-dvaro amru acheichem shon'eichem menadeichem lema'an shmi yichbad HASHEM venir'eh vesimchatchem vehem yevshu.
Hear the word of HASHEM, you who tremble at His word: "Your brethren who hated you, who cast you out for My name's sake, said, 'Let HASHEM be glorified, that we may see your joy.' But they shall be ashamed."

6 Kol sha'on me'ir kol meheichal kol HASHEM meshalem gemul leoyevav.
The sound of noise from the city! A voice from the temple! The voice of HASHEM, Who fully repays His enemies!

7 Beterem tachil yaladah beterem yavo chevel lah vehimlitah zachar.
Before she was in labor, she gave birth; before her pain came, she delivered a male child.

8 Mi-shama kazot mi ra'ah ka'eleh hayuchal eretz beyom echad im-yivaled goy pa'am echat ki-chalah gam-yaldah Tziyon et-baneiha.
Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Tziyon was in labor, she gave birth to her children.

9 Ha'ani ashbir velo olid yomar HASHEM im-ani hamolid ve'atzarti amar Elokayich.
Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?" says HASHEM. "Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?" says your G-d.

10 Simchu et-Yerushalayim vegilu vah kol-ohaveiha sisu itah masus kol-hamit'ablim aleiha.
Rejoice with Yerushalayim, and be glad with her, all you who love her; rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her;

11 Lema'an tinku ushovatem mishod tanchumeiha lema'an tamotzu vehit'anagtem miziz kevodah.
That you may feed and be satisfied With the consolation of her bosom, that you may drink deeply and be delighted with the abundance of her glory."

12 Ki-choh amar HASHEM hineni noteh-eleiha kenahar shalom uchenachal shotef kevod goyim vinaktem al-tzad tinase'u ve'al-birkayim tesha'asha'u.
For thus says HASHEM: "Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; on her sides shall you be carried, and be dandled on her knees.

13 Ke'ish asher imo tenachamenu ken anochi anachemchem uviYerushalayim tenuchamu.
As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Yerushalayim."

14 Ure'item vesas libchem ve'atzmoteychem kadeshe tifrachenah venod'ah yad-HASHEM et-avadav veza'am et-oyevav.
When you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like grass; the hand of HASHEM shall be known to His servants, and His indignation to His enemies.

15 Ki-hineh HASHEM ba'esh yavo vechasufah markevotav lehashiv bechemah apo vega'arato belahavei-esh.
For behold, HASHEM will come with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire.

16 Ki va'esh HASHEM nishpat uvecharbo et-kol-basar verabu chalelei HASHEM.
For by fire and by His sword HASHEM will judge all flesh; and the slain of HASHEM shall be many.

17 Hamitkadshim vehamitaharim el-haganot achar achat batavech ochelei besar hachazir vehasheketz veha'achbar yachdav yasufu neum-HASHEM.
Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens after an idol in the midst, eating swine's flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be consumed together," says HASHEM.

18 Ve'anochi ma'aseihem umachshevoteichem ba'ah lekabetz et-kol-hagoyim vehaleshonot uva'u vera'u et-kvodi.
For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall be that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and see My glory.

19 Vesamti vahem ot veshilachti mehem pleytim el-hagoyim Tarshish Pul veLud moshchey Keshet Tuval veYavan haiyim harechokim asher lo-sham'u et-shim'i velo-ra'u et-kvodi vehigidu et-kvodi bagoyim.
I will set a sign among them; and those among them who escape I will send to the nations: to Tarshish and Pul and Lud, who draw the bow, and Tuval and Yavan, to the coastlands afar off who have not heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.

20 Vehevi'u et-kol-acheichem mikol-hagoyim minchah l'HASHEM basusim uvarechev uvatsabim uvapradim uvakirkarot al har kodshi Yerushalayim amar HASHEM ka'asher yavi'u venei Yisrael et-haminchah bichli tahor beit HASHEM.
Then they shall bring all your brethren for an offering to HASHEM out of all nations, on horses and in chariots and in litters, on mules and on camels, to My holy mountain Yerushalayim," says HASHEM, "as the children of Yisrael bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of HASHEM.

21 Vegam-mehem ekach lakohanim la-Leviim amar HASHEM.
And I will also take some of them for priests and Levites," says HASHEM.

22 Ki cha'asher hashamayim hachadashim veha'aretz hachadashah asher ani oseh omdim lefanai neum-HASHEM ken ya'amod zar'achem veshimchem.
For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before Me," says HASHEM, "So shall your descendants and your name remain.

23 Vehayah midei-chodesh bechodsho umidei shabbat beshabato yavo chol-basar lehishtachavot lefanai amar HASHEM.
And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me," says HASHEM.

24 Veyatz'u vera'u befigrei ha'anashim haposh'im bi ki tolatem lo tamut ve'isham lo tichbeh vehayu dera'on lechol-basar.
And they shall go forth and look upon the corpses of the men who have transgressed against Me. For their worm does not die, and their fire is not quenched. They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh."

Haftarah Shabbat Erev Rosh Chodesh
1 Shmuel 20:18-42

20:18 Vayomer lo Yehonatan machar chodesh venifkadetaki yipaked moshavecha.
Then Yehonatan said to David, "Tomorrow is the New Moon; and you will be missed, because your seat will be empty.

19 Veshilashta tered me'od uvata el-hamakom asher-nistarta sham beyom hama'aseh veyashavta etzel ha'even ha'azel.
And when you have stayed three days, go down quickly and come to the place where you hid on the day of the deed; and remain by the stone Azel.

20 Va'ani shloshet hachitzim tzidah oreh leshalach-li lematarah.
Then I will shoot three arrows to the side, as though I shot at a target;

21 Vehineh eshlach et-hana'ar lech metsa et-hachitzim im-amor omar lana'ar hineh hachitzim mimecha vahenah kachenu vavo'ah ki-shalom lecha ve'ein davar chai-HASHEM.
and there I will send a lad, saying, 'Go, find the arrows.' If I expressly say to him, 'Look, the arrows are on this side of you; get them and come'--then, as HASHEM lives, there is safety for you and no harm.

22 Ve'im-koh omar la'elem hineh hachitzim mimecha vahal'ah lech ki shilachacha HASHEM.
But if I say thus to the young man, 'Look, the arrows are beyond you'--go your way, for HASHEM has sent you away.

23 Vehadavar asher dibarnu ani va'atah hineh HASHEM beyni uveinecha ad-olam.
And as for the matter which you and I have spoken of, indeed HASHEM be between you and me forever."

24 Vayisater David basadeh vayehi hachodesh vayeshev hamelech el-halechem le'echol.
Then David hid in the field. And when the New Moon had come, the king sat down to eat the feast.

25 Vayeshev hamelech al-moshavo kefa'am befa'am el-moshav hakir vayakom Yehonatan vayeshev Avner mitsad Shaul vayipaked mekom David.
Now the king sat on his seat, as at other times, on a seat by the wall. And Yehonatan arose, and Avner sat by Shaul's side, but David's place was empty.

26 Velo-diber Shaul me'umah bayom hahu ki amar mikreh hu bilti tahor hu ki-lo tahor.
Nevertheless Shaul did not say anything that day, for he thought, "Something has happened to him; he is unclean, surely he is unclean."

27 Vayehi mimocharat hachodesh hasheni vayipaked mekom David vayomer Shaul el-Yehonatan beno madua lo-va ven-Yishai gam-temol gam-hayom el-halachem.
And it happened the next day, the second day of the month, that David's place was empty. And Shaul said to Yehonatan his son, "Why has the son of Yishai not come to eat, either yesterday or today?"

28 Vaya'an Yehonatan et-Shaul nish'ol nish'al David me'imadi ad-Beit-Lechem.
So Yehonatan answered Shaul, "David earnestly asked permission of me to go to Beit-Lechem.

29 Vayomer shalcheni na ki zevach mishpachah lanu ba'ir vehu tzivah-li achi ve'atah im-matzati chen be'eyneicha imaltah na ve'er'eh et-echai al-ken lo-va el-shulchan hamelech.
And he said, 'Please let me go, for our family has a sacrifice in the city, and my brother has commanded me to be there. And now, if I have found favor in your eyes, please let me get away and see my brothers.' Therefore he has not come to the king's table."

30 Vayichar-af Shaul biYehonatan vayomer lo ben-na'avat hamardut halo yadati ki-vocher atah leven-Yishai levashtecha ulvoshet ervat imecha.
Then Shaul's anger was aroused against Yehonatan, and he said to him, "You son of a perverse, rebellious woman! Do I not know that you have chosen the son of Yishai to your own shame and to the shame of your mother's nakedness?

31 Ki chol-hayamim asher-ben-Yishai chai al-ha'adamah lo tikon atah umalchutecha ve'atah shlach vekach oto elai ki ven-mavet hu.
For as long as the son of Yishai lives on the earth, you shall not be established, nor your kingdom. Now therefore, send and bring him to me, for he shall surely die."

32 Vaya'an Yehonatan et-Shaul aviv vayomer elav lamah yumat meh asah.
And Yehonatan answered Shaul his father, and said to him, "Why should he be killed? What has he done?"

33 Vayatel Shaul et-hachanit alav lehakoto vayeda Yehonatan ki-chalah hi me'im aviv lehamit et-David.
Then Shaul cast a spear at him to kill him, by which Yehonatan knew that it was determined by his father to kill David.

34 Vayakom Yehonatan me'im hashulchan bachari-af velo-achal beyom hachodesh hasheni lechem ki netzav el-David ki hichlimo aviv.
So Yehonatan arose from the table in fierce anger, and ate no food the second day of the month, for he was grieved for David, because his father had treated him shamefully.

35 Vayehi vaboker vayetze Yehonatan hasadeh lemo'ed David vena'ar katon imo.
And so it was, in the morning, that Yehonatan went out into the field at the time appointed with David, and a little lad was with him.

36 Vayomer lena'aro ruts metsa-na et-hachitsim asher anochi moreh hana'ar rats vehu-yarah hachetsi leha'aviro.
Then he said to his lad, "Now run, find the arrows which I shoot." As the lad ran, he shot an arrow beyond him.

37 Vayavo hana'ar ad-mekom hachetzi asher yarah Yehonatan vayikra Yehonatan acharey hana'ar vayomer halo hachetzi mimecha vahal'ah.
When the lad had come to the place where the arrow was which Yehonatan had shot, Yehonatan cried out after the lad and said, "Is not the arrow beyond you?"

38 Vayikra Yehonatan acharei hana'ar meherah chushah al-ta'amod vayelaket na'ar Yehonatan et-hachitzim vayavo el-adonav.
And Yehonatan cried out after the lad, "Make haste, hurry, do not delay!" So Yehonatan's lad gathered up the arrows and came back to his master.

39 Vehana'ar lo-yada me'umah ach Yehonatan veDavid yad'u et-hadavar.
But the lad did not know anything. Only Yehonatan and David knew of the matter.

40 Vayiten Yehonatan et-kelav el-hana'ar asher-lo vayomer lo lech havei ha'ir.
Then Yehonatan gave his weapons to his lad, and said to him, "Go, carry them to the city."

41 Hana'ar ba veDavid kam me'etzel hanegev vayipol le'apav artsah vayishtachu shalosh pe'amim vayishku ish et-re'ehu vayivku ish et-re'ehu ad-David higdil.
As soon as the lad had gone, David arose from a place toward the south, fell on his face to the ground, and bowed down three times. And they kissed one another; and they wept together, but David more so.

42 Vayomer Yehonatan le-David lech leshalom asher nishbanu shneynu anachnu beshem HASHEM lemor HASHEM yihyeh beini uveinecha uvein zar'i uvein zar'acha ad-olam.
Then Yehonatan said to David, "Go in peace, since we have both sworn in the name of HASHEM, saying, 'May HASHEM be between you and me, and between your descendants and my descendants, forever.'" So he arose and departed, and Yehonatan went into the city.

Haftarah Rosh HaShanah - First Day
1 Shmuel 1:1 - 1:28 ; 2:1 - 2:10

{Maftir: BaMidbar 29:1 - 29:6}

1:1 Vayehi ish echad min-haRamatayim Tzofim mehar Efrayim ushmo Elkanah ben-Yerocham ben-Elihu ben-Tochu ven-Tzuf Efrati.
Now there was a certain man of Ramatayim Tzofim, of the mountains of Efrayim, and his name was Elkanah the son of Yerocham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tochu, the son of Tzuf, an Efrati.

2 Velo shtei nashim shem achat Channah veshem hashenit Peninnah vayehi li-Peninnah yeladim ule-Channah eyn yeladim.
And he had two wives: the name of one was Channah, and the name of the other Peninnah. Peninnah had children, but Channah had no children.

3 Ve'alah ha'ish hahu me'iro miyamim yamimah lehishtachavot velizvoach l'HASHEM Tzeva'ot beShiloh vesham shnei vnei-Eli Chofni uPinchas kohanim l'HASHEM.
This man went up from his city yearly to worship and sacrifice to HASHEM of hosts in Shiloh. Also the two sons of Eli, Chofni and Pinchas, the priests of HASHEM, were there.

4 Vayehi hayom vayizbakh Elkanah venatan li-Peninnah ishto ulechol-baneiha uvenoteiha manot.
And whenever the time came for Elkanah to make an offering, he would give portions to Peninnah his wife and to all her sons and daughters.

5 Ule-Chanah yiten manah achat apayim ki et-Channah ahev v'HASHEM sagar rachmah.
But to Channah he would give a double portion, for he loved Channah, although HASHEM had closed her womb.

6 Vechi'asatah tzaratah gam-ka'as ba'avur har'imah ki-sagar HASHEM be'ad rachmah.
And her rival also provoked her severely, to make her miserable, because HASHEM had closed her womb.

7 Vechen ya'aseh shanah veshanah midei alotah beveit HASHEM ken tach'isenah vativkeh velo tochal.
So it was, year by year, when she went up to the house of HASHEM, that she provoked her; therefore she wept and did not eat.

8 Vayomer lah Elkanah ishah Channah lamah tivki velamah lo tochli velamah yera levavech halo anochi tov lach me'asarah banim.
Then Elkanah her husband said to her, "Channah, why do you weep? Why do you not eat? And why is your heart grieved? Am I not better to you than ten sons?"

9 Vatakom Channah acharei ochlah veShiloh ve'acharei shatoh ve'Eli hakohen yoshev al-hakise al-mezuzat hechal HASHEM.
So Channah arose after they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh. Now Eli the priest was sitting on the seat by the doorpost of the tabernacle of HASHEM.

10 Vehi marat nafesh vatitpalel al-HASHEM uvachoh tivkeh.
And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to HASHEM and wept in anguish.

11 Vatidor neder vatomar HASHEM Tzeva'ot im-ra'oh tir'eh ba'ani amatecha uzechartani velo-tishkach et-amatecha venatatah la'amatecha zera anashim unetativ l'HASHEM kol-yemei chayav umorah lo-ya'aleh al-rosho.
Then she made a vow and said, "O HASHEM of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to HASHEM all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head."

12 Vehayah ki hirbetah lehitpalel lifnei HASHEM ve'Eli shomer et-piha.
And it happened, as she continued praying before HASHEM, that Eli watched her mouth.

13 VeChanah hi medaberet al-libah rak sfateiha na'ot vekolah lo yishamea vayachoshveha Eli leshikorah.
Now Channah spoke in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard. Therefore Eli thought she was drunk.

14 Vayomer eleiha Eli ad-matai tishtakarin hasiri et-yenech me'alayich.
So Eli said to her, "How long will you be drunk? Put your wine away from you!"

15 Vata'an Channah vatomer lo adoni ishah kshat-ruach anochi veyayin veshechar lo shatiti va'eshpoch et-nafshi lifnei HASHEM.
And Channah answered and said, "No, my master, I am a woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor intoxicating drink, but have poured out my soul before HASHEM.

16 Al-titen et-amatecha lifnei bat-Beliya'al ki-merov sichi vechasi dibarti ad-henah.
Do not consider your maidservant a wicked woman, for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I have spoken until now."

17 Vaya'an Eli vayomer lechi leshalom ve'Elokei Yisrael yiten et-shelatech asher sha'alt me'imo.
Then Eli answered and said, "Go in peace, and the G-d of Yisrael grant your petition which you have asked of Him."

18 Vatomer timtza shifchatecha chen be'eyneicha vatelech ha'ishah ledarkah vatochal ufaneiha lo-hayu-lah od.
And she said, "Let your maidservant find favor in your sight." So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad.

19 Vayashkimu vaboker vayishtachavu lifnei HASHEM vayashuvu vayavo'u el-beitam haRamatah vayeda Elkanah et-Channah ishto vayizkereha HASHEM.
Then they rose early in the morning and worshiped before HASHEM, and returned and came to their house at Ramatah. And Elkanah knew Channah his wife, and HASHEM remembered her.

20 Vayehi litkufot hayamim vatahar Channah ben vatikra et-shmo Shmuel ki me'HASHEM she'iltiv.
So it came to pass in the process of time that Channah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Shmuel, saying, "Because I have asked for him from HASHEM.'

21 Vaya'al ha'ish Elkanah vechol-beyto lizboach l'HASHEM et-zevach hayamim ve'et-nidro.
Now the man Elkanah and all his house went up to offer to HASHEM the yearly sacrifice and his vow.

22 VeChannah lo alatah ki-amrah le'ishah ad yigamel hana'ar vahavi'otiv venir'ah et-penei HASHEM veyashav sham ad-olam.
But Channah did not go up, for she said to her husband, "Not until the child is weaned; then I will take him, that he may appear before HASHEM and remain there forever."

23 Vayomer lah Elkanah ishah asi hatov be'einayich shvi ad-gamlech oto ach yakem HASHEM et-devaro vateshev ha'ishah vateinek et-benah ad-gamlah oto.
And Elkanah her husband said to her, "Do what seems best to you; wait until you have weaned him. Only let HASHEM establish His word." So the woman stayed and nursed her son until she had weaned him.

24 Vata'alehu imah ka'asher gemalatu befarim shloshah ve'eyfah achat kemach venevel yayin vatevi'ehu beit-HASHEM Shilo vehana'ar na'ar.
Now when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bulls, one efah of flour, and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of HASHEM in Shiloh. And the child was young.

25 Vayishchatu et-hapar vayavi'u et-hana'ar el-Eli.
Then they slaughtered a bull, and brought the child to Eli.

26 Vatomer bi adoni chei nafshecha adoni ani ha'ishah hanitzevet imchah bazeh lehitpalel el-HASHEM.
And she said, "O my master! As your soul lives, my master, I am the woman who stood by you here, praying to HASHEM.

27 El-hana'ar hazeh hitpalalti vayiten HASHEM li et-she'elati asher sha'alti me'imo.
For this child I prayed, and HASHEM has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.

28 Vegam anochi hish'iltihu l'HASHEM kol-hayamim asher hayah hu sha'ul l'HASHEM vayishtachu sham l'HASHEM.
Therefore I also have lent him to HASHEM; as long as he lives he shall be lent to HSHEM. ' So they worshiped HASHEM there.

2:1 Vatitpalel Channah vatomar alatz libi ba'HASHEM ramah karni ba'HASHEM rachav pi al-oyevay ki samachti bishu'atecha.
And Channah prayed and said: "My heart rejoices in HASHEM; my horn is exalted in HASHEM. I smile at my enemies, because I rejoice in Your salvation.

2 Ein-kadosh ka'HASHEM ki ein biltecha ve'ein tzur ke'Elokeinu.
No one is holy like HASHEM, for there is none besides You, nor is there any rock like our G-d.

3 Al-tarbu tedabru gvohah gvohah yetze atak mipichem ki Kel de'ot HASHEM velo nitkenu alilot.
Talk no more so very proudly; let no arrogance come from your mouth, for HASHEM is the G-d of knowledge; and by Him actions are weighed.

4 Keshet giborim chatim venichshalim azru chayil.
The bows of the mighty men are broken, and those who stumbled are girded with strength.

5 Shove'im balechem niskaru ure'evim chadelu ad-akarah yaldah shiv'ah verabat banim umlalah.
Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, and the hungry have ceased to hunger. Even the barren has borne seven, and she who has many children has become feeble.

6 HASHEM memit umechayeh morid she'ol vaya'al.
HASHEM kills and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and brings up.

7 HASHEM morish uma'ashir mashpil af-meromem.
HASHEM makes poor and makes rich; He brings low and lifts up.

8 Mekim me'afar dal me'ashpot yarim evyon lehoshiv im-nedivim vechise chavod yanchilem ki l'HASHEM metsukei eretz vayashet aleihem tevel.
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among princes and make them inherit the throne of glory. "For the pillars of the earth are HASHEM's, and He has set the world upon them.

9 Ragley chasidav yishmor uresha'im bachoshech yidamu ki-lo bechoach yigbar-ish.
He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness. "For by strength no man shall prevail.

10 HASHEM yechatu merivav alav bashamayim yar'em HASHEM yadin afsei-aretz veyiten-oz lemalko keren meshicho.
The adversaries of HASHEM shall be broken in pieces; from heaven He will thunder against them. HASHEM will judge the ends of the earth. "He will give strength to His king, and exalt the horn of His anointed."

{Maftir: BaMidbar 29:1 - 29:6}

31:1 Koh amar HASHEM matza chen bamidbar am seridei charev haloch lehargi'o Yisrael.
Thus says HASHEM: "The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness--Yisrael, when I went to give him rest."

2 Merachok HASHEM nir'ah li ve'ahavat olam ahavtich al-ken meshachtich chased.
HASHEM has appeared of old to me, saying: "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

3 Od evnech venivneit betulat Yisrael od tadi tupayich veyatzat bimchol mesachakim.
Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Yisrael! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.

4 Od tit'i cheramim beharei Shomron nat'u not'im vechilelu.
You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Shomron; the planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food.

5 Ki yesh-yom kar'u notzrim behar Efrayim kumu vena'aleh Tziyon el-HASHEM Elokeinu.
For there shall be a day when the watchmen will cry on Mount Efrayim, 'Arise, and let us go up to Tziyon, to HASHEM our G-d.'"

6 Ki-choh amar HASHEM ronu le-Yaakov simchah vetsahalu berosh hagoyim hashmi'u halelu ve'imru hosha HASHEM et-amecha et she'erit Yisrael.
For thus says HASHEM: "Sing with gladness for Yaakov, and shout among the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, 'O HASHEM, save Your people, the remnant of Yisrael!'

7 Hineni mevi otam me'eretz tzafon vekibatztim miyarketei-aretz bam iver ufise'ach harah veyoledet yachdav kahal gadol yashuvu henah.
Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and the one who labors with child, together; a great throng shall return there.

8 Bivchi yavo'u uvetachanunim ovilem olichem el-nachalei mayim bederech yashar lo yikashlu bah ki-hayit le-Yisrael le'av ve'Efrayim bechori hu.
They shall come with weeping, and with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; for I am a Father to Yisrael, and Efrayim is My firstborn.

9 Shim'u dvar-HASHEM goyim vehagidu va'iyim mimerchak ve'imru mezareh Yisrael yekabtzenu ushmaro kero'eh edro.
Hear the word of HASHEM, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, 'He who scattered Yisrael will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.'
