Haftarah (Shabbat Evening Portion)

–  Prophecy of Messiah and promise to Yisra’el He will save them

Isa 42:5 Thus saith Elohim YHWH, He that created the heavens, and stretched them out; He
that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it; He that gives breath unto the
people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
Isa 42:6 I YHWH have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you,
and give you for a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations;
Isa 42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in
darkness out of the prison house.
Isa 42:8 I am YHWH: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my
praise to graven images.
Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they
spring forth I tell you of them.
Isa 42:10 Sing unto YHWH a new song, and His praise from the end of the earth, you that go
down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
Isa 42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar
does inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the
mountains.
Isa 42:12 Let them give glory unto YHWH, and declare His praise in the islands.
Isa 42:13 YHWH shall go forth as a mighty man, He shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: He
shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies.
Isa 42:14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I
cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.
Isa 42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the
rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that
they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight.
These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isa 42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images,
that say to the molten images, You are our Elohim.
Isa 42:18 Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.
Isa 42:19 Who is blind, [certainly not my servant? a deaf messenger is cast out? who is blind yet
perfect, blind and] YHWH’s servant?
Isa 42:20 Seeing many things, but you observe not; opening the ears, but he hears not.
Isa 42:21 YHWH is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will magnify the law, and make
it honorable.
Isa 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they
are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none saith,
Restore.
Isa 42:23 Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?
Isa 42:24 Who gave Ya’akov for a spoil, and Yisra’el to the robbers? did not YHWH, He against
whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in His ways, neither were they obedient unto
His law.
