Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  In that day, seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, “We will eat our own food And wear our own clothes; Only let us be called by your name— Take away our disgrace!”

א  וְהֶחֱזִיקוּ שֶׁבַע נָשִׁים בְּאִישׁ אֶחָד בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא לֵאמֹר לַחְמֵנוּ נֹאכֵל וְשִׂמְלָתֵנוּ נִלְבָּשׁ רַק יִקָּרֵא שִׁמְךָ עָלֵינוּ אֱסֹף חֶרְפָּתֵנוּ׃

2  In that day, The radiance of Hashem Will lend beauty and glory, And the splendor of the land [Will give] dignity and majesty, To the survivors of Yisrael.

ba-YOM ha-HU yih-YEH TZE-makh a-do-NAI litz-VEE ul-kha-VOD uf-REE ha-A-retz l’-ga-ON ul-tif-E-ret lif-lay-TAT yis-ra-AYL

ב  בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא יִהְיֶה צֶמַח יְהֹוָה לִצְבִי וּלְכָבוֹד וּפְרִי הָאָרֶץ לְגָאוֹן וּלְתִפְאֶרֶת לִפְלֵיטַת יִשְׂרָאֵל׃

4:2   Dignity and majesty to the survivors of Yisrael

Ramban writes that nowhere in the world would one find a land which is good and bountiful when settled by its people, but desolate when ruled by foreigners. However, this is exactly what Hashem promises regarding the Land of Israel, as it says in Vayikra (26:32), “I will make the land desolate, so that your enemies who settle in it shall be appalled by it.” This guarantees that throughout the ages, Eretz Yisrael will not accept its enemies; it will prosper only for the children of Israel. Today, one can see this blessing fulfilled, as her children have returned home. The land which lay desolate for centuries under foreign rule again flourishes and blooms, giving dignity and majesty to her people.

3  And those who remain in Tzion And are left in Yerushalayim— All who are inscribed for life in Yerushalayim— Shall be called holy.

ג  וְהָיָה הַנִּשְׁאָר בְּצִיּוֹן וְהַנּוֹתָר בִּירוּשָׁלַ ִם קָדוֹשׁ יֵאָמֶר לוֹ כָּל־הַכָּתוּב לַחַיִּים בִּירוּשָׁלָ ִם׃

4  When my Lord has washed away The filth of the daughters of Tzion, And from Yerushalayim‘s midst Has rinsed out her infamy— In a spirit of judgment And in a spirit of purging—

ד  אִם רָחַץ אֲדֹנָי אֵת צֹאַת בְּנוֹת־צִיּוֹן וְאֶת־דְּמֵי יְרוּשָׁלַ ִם יָדִיחַ מִקִּרְבָּהּ בְּרוּחַ מִשְׁפָּט וּבְרוּחַ בָּעֵר׃

5  Hashem will create over the whole shrine and meeting place of Mount Tzion cloud by day and smoke with a glow of flaming fire by night. Indeed, over all the glory shall hang a canopy,

ה  וּבָרָא יְהֹוָה עַל כָּל־מְכוֹן הַר־צִיּוֹן וְעַל־מִקְרָאֶהָ עָנָן יוֹמָם וְעָשָׁן וְנֹגַהּ אֵשׁ לֶהָבָה לָיְלָה כִּי עַל־כָּל־כָּבוֹד חֻפָּה׃

6  which shall serve as a pavilion for shade from heat by day and as a shelter for protection against drenching rain.

ו  וְסֻכָּה תִּהְיֶה לְצֵל־יוֹמָם מֵחֹרֶב וּלְמַחְסֶה וּלְמִסְתּוֹר מִזֶּרֶם וּמִמָּטָר׃

  • Commentary on verse 2: I’d like to recommend an article I found on the Internet entitled, “The Land of Israel’s Loyalty to the Jewish People”. In it, Rabbi Chaim Jachter lays out more in-depth background regarding the moderator’s comment; worth reading, in my estimation.

  • And HaShem shall fulfill His Word and it wil be and is even now wonderous in our sight .

  • Yes, Lord, that all the evil and corruption would be washed away from this land and people, Let G-d arise and let His enemies be scattered. Wash us Lord.

  • Perhaps it is verse 5 that we are all waiting for. The return of the Shekinah Glory of HaShem to return over the Temple Mount and removal of the abominations that exist there today before the world finally understands who has chosen Jerusalem for His habitation.

  • Again we see the foolishness of Hamas and others threatening to “wipe Israel off the map”. It will never happen. For He who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. Only the holy shall dwell in the Holy City.
