SHOFTIM – No justice in Germany again

„Shoftim“: Deuteronomy 16:18 till 21:9; Isaiah 51:12 till 52:12
Commentary by Eric Martienssen

Firstly, the Torah portion Shoftim of cause should be read. To make this a little more convenient for you, we found the entire reading summarized in this video about Judges (Shoftim) and the Jew’s call for „Justice, Justice“…

And now, second, a few verses out of this weeks Haftorah (here Isaiah 52) but what a blessing, what a future:
„Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean… For thus saith the Lord GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause… How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion… The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God… For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your reward.“

But now listen to this words of Reuben Ebrahimoff in the video commentary by „Haftorahman“, telling of the coming Messiah:

Shabbat Shalom
