Haf. Shoftim (Isaiah 51:12-52:12)

Join Beth Tikkun as we continue our study of the Haftarah portions for the 2013-14 Torah cycle. In this study we look deeply into one of the most moving passages of Scripture depicting God’s love for Jerusalem and His restoration of Israel. There are many smaller themes packed into this favorite passage.

    Grant, i got lost in the “armor”. Was it 52:11? My translation read “You who carry the vessels of the LORD.” I think i was trying to make note of reference at the time and i lost what was being said.

    It was good to be back. Couldn’t eat at oneg for talking — which was better than eating. Thank you for your prayers!

    Hi GRant could you please let me know which bible you are using? We are using the complete Jewish bible and also looked at the Jewish bible on the web. It seems to be written quite differently

    Albert, Please accept my apologies for not addressing your question before now. Somehow you comment seems to have slipped between the cracks! Anyway, the answer to your question depends upon which part of the Bible we are studying. If we are in the Torah, then I generally rely on the Stone Chumash published by Artscroll. However, I still need to make some tweaks to the translation since the rabbis do, after all, have their own prejudices that tend to sneak into the translation. If we are in the Brit Chadashah, I generally use the New American Standard Bible. But, again, with a few tweaks to the translation. One of the things I especially like about the NASB is that it provides a literal translation of many words in the margins. You see, most English translations try to be overly helpful and translate a word or phrase with the proper theological ‘spin’. However, the NASB provides the literal words/phrases which I invariably go by. Hope this helps!

    Calvin was not antisemitic. He invented dual covenant theology.
