Haftorah for Behaalotecha

Haftorah for Behaalotecha

E-mail
The following is the standard Haftorah for this week's Torah reading. However, various calendar-based considerations occasionally cause different Haftorahs to be substituted for the standard ones.

Zechariah

Chapter 2

14. Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for, behold! I will come and dwell in your midst, says the Lord.
15. And many nations shall join the Lord on that day, and they shall be My people; and I will dwell in your midst and you shall know that the Lord of Hosts sent me to you.
16. And the Lord shall inherit Judah as His share on the Holy Land, and He shall again choose Jerusalem.
17. Silence all flesh from before the Lord, for He is aroused out of His holy habitation.

Chapter 3

1. And He showed me Joshua, the High Priest, standing before the angel of the Lord. And Satan was standing on his right, to accuse him.
2. And the Lord said to Satan: The Lord shall rebuke you, O Satan; and the Lord shall rebuke you, He who chose Jerusalem. Is this one not a brand plucked from fire?
3. Now Joshua was wearing filthy garments and standing before the angel.
4. And he [the angel] raised his voice and said to those standing before him, saying, "Take the filthy garments off him." And he said to him, "See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I have clad you with clean garments."
5. And I said, "Let them put a pure miter on his head," and they put the pure miter on his head. And they had clothed him with garments while the angel of the Lord was standing.
6. And the angel of the Lord warned Joshua, saying,
7. So said the Lord of Hosts: If you walk in My ways, and if you keep My charge, you, too, shall judge My house, and you, too, shall guard My courtyards, and I will give you free access among these who stand by.
8. Hearken, now, O Joshua the High Priest-you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men worthy of a miracle-for, behold! I bring My servant, the Shoot.
9. For, behold the stone that I have placed before Joshua. Seven eyes are directed to one stone. Behold! I untie its knots, says the Lord of Hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
10. On that day, says the Lord of Hosts, you shall call-each man to his neighbor-to come under his vine and under his fig tree.

Chapter 4

1. And the angel who spoke with me returned, and he awakened me as a man who wakes up from his sleep.
2. And he said to me, "What do you see?" And I said, "I saw, and behold [there was] a candelabrum all of gold, with its oil-bowl on top of it, and its seven lamps thereon; seven tubes each to the lamps that were on top of it.
3. And [there were] two olive trees near it; one on the right of the bowl, and one on its left.
4. So I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, "What are these, my lord?"
5. And the angel who spoke with me answered, and he said to me, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my lord."
6. And he answered and spoke to me, saying, "This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying: 'Not by military force and not by physical strength, but by My spirit,' says the Lord of Hosts.
7. Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you sink to a plain! He will bring out the stone of the main architect, with shouts of grace, grace to it."
