the tongs both worketh in the coals, fashioneth it with hammers, and worketh it with the strength of his arms: yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth, he drinketh no water, and is faint. The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man: that it may remain in the house. He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it. Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm bimself: yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread: yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it: he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto. He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire: and the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith deliver' me; for thou art my god. They have not known nor understood : for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof: I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination ? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree? he feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, is there not a lie in my right hand ? remember these, O Jacob and Israel, for thou art my servant : I have formed thee, thou art my servant: 0 Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. Í have blotted out as a thick cloud thy transgressions, and as a cloud, thy sins return unto me; for I have redeemed thee. Sing, O ye heavens; for the Lord hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth; break forth into singing, ye mountains, o forest, and every tree therein: for the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.

JEREMIAH, CHAP. VI.

Kow Omar. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, put

your burnt-offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh. For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burntofferings or sacrifices : but this thing commanded I them, saying,

HAPHTARAH VAU-YICKRO;

ISAIAH, CHAP. XLIII.

Om Zu. This people have I formed for myself: they shall shew

forth my praise. But thou hast not called upon me, o Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel. Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt-offerings, neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense. Thou hast brought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou bast, wearied 'me with thine iniquities. I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. : Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified. Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me. Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches. Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant, and Israel, whom I have chosen : thus saith the Lord, that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; fear pat, 0. Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground; I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring and they shall spring up as among the grass, as wilows by the water-courses. One shall say, I am the Lord's; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another "shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel. Thus saith the Lord the king of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts, I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God. And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come? let them shew unto them. Fear ye not, neither be afraid : have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses, Is there a God besides me? yea, there is no God: 1. know not any. They that make a graven image are all of them vanity: and their delectable things, shall not profit: and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know: 'that they may be ashamed. Who hath formed

da sod, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing? behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed ; and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together. The smith with

THE

HAPHTARAHS.

He that says the Hophtarah, before he begins says as follows." Baruch Attah. Blessed art thou, O Lord! our God, King of

the universe, that hath chosen good Prophets, and with pleasure declared to them the trath: blessed art thou, O Lord! who gavest the law to Moses thy servant, to Israel thy people, and to the true and righteous Prophets.

Then he says the Haphtarąh, and afterwards as follows. Baruch Altah, Blessed art thou, O Lord! our God, King and

Creator of the universe, whose righteousness is to all generations; the God that is faithful, saith and doeth, speaketh and performeth, whose words are truth and just. Faithful art thou, O Lord! our God, thy faithful words thou recallest not; for the Almighty, faithful, and merciful thou art. Blessed art thou, O Lord ! who art faithful with all thy words. Rachem Ol Zion. Have compassion on Zion, for that is our

residence, and to the meek mayest thou perform thy salvation speedily in our days. Blessed art thon, O Lord! who will rejoice Zion with her posterity. Somchinu Adonie Rejoice us, O Lord! our God, with Elias Elahinu. the Prophet thy servant, and with the

kingdom of the house of David, that thine anointed speedily shall come op his throne, to rejoice qur hearts. Let no other enjoy that glory to sit thereon, as thou hast declared that the light of David shall not be quenched. Blessed art thou, O Lord! the shield of David. OL Hatora. For the sake of thy law, thy sacrifices, and thy

prophets, and for the sake of this day of rest, which thou hast given unto us, O Lord! our God, to sanctify and to rest, to honour and to glorify. Therefore, O Lord ! our God, with reverence we acknowledge thee, and bless, thee and thy name, in the mouth of all living continually, and to eternity. Blessed art thou, O Lord! who sanctifieth the Sabbath.
