Haftorah for V'Zot HaBerachah

Haftorah for V'Zot HaBerachah

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.

Joshua

Chapter 1

1. And it was after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, that the Lord said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying:
2. Moses my servant has died; and now arise cross this Jordan, you and all this nation, to the land which I give the children of Israel.
3. Every place on which the soles of your feet will tread I have given to you, as I have spoken to Moses.
4. From this desert and Lebanon to the great river, the Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the great sea westward shall be your boundary.
5. No man shall stand up before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so shall I be with you. I will not weaken My grasp on you nor will I abandon you.
6. Be strong and have courage; for you will cause this nation to inherit the land that I have sworn to their ancestors to give to them.
7. Just be strong and very courageous to observe and do in accordance with all of the Torah that Moses My servant has commanded you. Do not stray therefrom right or left, in order that you succeed wherever you go.
8. This book of the Torah shall not leave your mouth; you shall meditate therein day and night, in order that you observe to do all that is written in it, for then will you succeed in all your ways and then will you prosper.
9. Did I not command you, be strong and have courage, do not fear and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
10. And Joshua commanded the officers of the nation, saying:
11. Go through the midst of the camp and command the nation saying: Prepare provision for yourselves, for in another three days you will cross this Jordan to come and inherit the land that the Lord your God is giving you to inherit.
12. And to the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, saying:
13. Remember the word that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you saying: The Lord your God is giving you rest and has given you this land.
14. Your wives, your children, and your cattle shall settle in the land that Moses gave you on this side of the Jordan, and you, all the warriors, shall cross over armed before your brothers, and you shall help them.
15. Until the Lord gives your brothers rest as He has given you, and they too shall inherit the land that the Lord your God gives them. You will then return to the land of your inheritance which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you on this side of the Jordan towards the rising of the sun, and you will inherit it.
16. And they answered Joshua saying: All that you have commanded us we shall do and wherever you send us we shall go.
17. Just as we obeyed Moses in everything, so shall we obey you. Only that the Lord your God be with you as He was with Moses.
18. Every man that shall rebel against your words and will not listen to your commands in all that you order him shall be put to death. Only be strong and have courage.
