2 HAAZINU Listen TORAH: Deuteronomy 32:1-52 HAFTORAH: 2 Samuel 22:1-51 BRIT CHADASHAH: Romans 10:17-11:12 All references: The Scripture 1998+ unless otherwise noted 3 SONG OF MOSES So Mosheh spoke in the hearing of all the assembly of Yisral the words of this song till their completion: (Deuteronomy 31:30) The Song of Moses is important why? And I saw like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those overcoming the beast and his image and his mark and the number of his name,

standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of Elohim. And they sing the song of Mosheh the servant of Elohim, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are Your works, l Shaddai! Righteous and true are Your ways, O Sovereign of the set-apart ones! Who shall not fear You, O , and esteem Your Name? Because You alone are kind. Because all nations shall come and worship before You, for Your righteousnesses have been made manifest. (Revelation 15:2-4) It is the song that we will be singing when we get to heaven 4 SEA OF GLASS The sea of glass mixed with fire is us. Seas are a scriptural metaphor for peoples. What is glass? It is sand (as in sands of the sea the seed of Avraham, Yitzaq and Yaaqob) heated very hot with the fire of the furnace, s refining furnace. See, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have chosen you in the

furnace of affliction. For My own sake, for My own sake, I do it. For how is it profaned? And My esteem I do not give to another. Listen to Me, O Yaaqob, and Yisral, My called: I am He, I am the First, I am also the Last. (Isaiah 48:10-12) Silver is heated and refined until the refiners reflection can be seen in the molten metal. However, glass is heated much hotter (affliction, persecution) until the sand becomes clear, so that is not just reflected (as a reverse or mirror image); but clearly seen through us, the glass. COMMANDED Moshe was commanded by to write this second song down: And now write down this song for yourselves, and teach it to the children of Yisral. Put it in their mouths, so that this song is to Me for a witness against the children of Yisral. (Deuteronomy 31:19) We are commanded to learn this song. It is to be in our mouths, so as to be a witness against us.

We learnt last weeks parsha that these closing words from Moshe were not only for our forefathers who were there; but, also for those who were to come, specifically, the Last Generation. So, instructed Moshe to write down this song as a witness to Bnei Yisrael in the Last Generation. POETRY The words of the Song of Moshe which make up most of Deuteronomy 32 are written distinctively in the Torah scrolls as two narrow columns, each with half of a verse using parallel language. The above verse 1-3 is a visual of the beginning of the song as the verses appear in the scrolls (Hebrew reads right to left):

This format is unique in the Torah. As poetry, the Song of Moshe contains multiple layers of meaning. At the heart of poetry is a deeper meaning, which surrounded by the harmony of its multiple meanings becomes the main melody. 7 HEAVEN AND EARTH Give ear, O heavens, and let me speak; And hear, O earth, The words of my mouth. Let my instruction fall as rain, My speech drop down as dew, As fine rain on the tender plants, And as showers on the grass. (Deuteronomy 32:12) Why would He call the Heavens and the Earth to hear and be witnesses? For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be (Matthew 5:18) made us to dwell in this realm, under heaven and on the earth. All that we do and experience in this life is between heaven and earth. And, this realm will not pass away and Torah will not pass away until all the Torah is fulfilled.

And I saw a renewed heaven and a renewed earth, for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. And I, Yohanan, saw the set-apart city, renewed Yerushalayim, coming down out of the heaven from Elohim, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21:1-2) BASIS OF THE POEM Rabbi Plauts words: The poem warns; it instructs; it gives hope. Israels past history has amply demonstrated Gods love and care, and these will not be found wanting in the future. Rebellion against His Law may put Israel in dire straits, but in the end God will be shown not to have forgotten the people he has created. At its simplest level, our poem addresses: - good and full of loving deeds for Israel until He must judge them for their unfaithfulness Israel faithless and ungrateful as it gains wealth

Other nations used by to judge Israel. These nations will not realize that their victory is because Israel has been sold out by their Rock. 9 GLORY TO There is a turning point, will, for His Names sake, redeem Israel and overthrow oppressors. He will restore the Land and His people. Protecting the Name of the Almighty is accomplished through the plan of the Almighty, so eloquently stated for us in Haazinu. This is the deeper meaning of the Song of Moshe: For I proclaim the Name of , Ascribe greatness to our Elohim. (Deuteronomy 32:3) We understand from the Song that we have a choice. Israel is s chosen people. If you join with or align yourself with the Fathers plan for Israel, then you will bring glory to His Name. If you choose to go against His plan for Israel, glory will still come to His Name, but it will

not be for your good! It is not by coincidence that the Song of Moshe is read during the 10 Days of Awe, a time when calls for His chosen people to focus on 10 what separates us from Him and thus our need for His mercy. THE PLAN OF So Mosheh spoke in the hearing of all the assembly of Yisral the words of this song till their completion: (Deuteronomy 31:30) The Song of Moshe touches on, in one chapter, the plan of . Deuteronomy 31:30 tells us that these words were spoken in the ears of ALL of Israel until they were ended. Literally this phrase is until completed/perfected. The question isuntil what/who is completed? I would like to suggest that these words should be meditated upon until the assembly of Israel is completed/perfected. When will that be?

We know that the Song of Moshe along with the Song of the Lamb will be sung by the saints during the tribulation. The Song of Moshe continues because the Almightys plan or His will is still a work-in-process. The words of the Song not only are a review of history, but they also speak to the future. The events of judgment and restoration will bring about the revelation of His 11 Name as so often repeated throughout the prophecies. THE HOPE WE WAIT FOR The hope we long for is given to us at the end of the song: O nations, acclaim His people! For He avenges the blood of His servants, And returns vengeance to His adversaries, ... (Deuteronomy 32:43) It is His servants that is avenging for. Lets define servant: But you, Yisral, are My servant, Yaaqob, whom I have chosen, the descendants of Abraham My friend, whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest parts, and said to You, You are My

servant, I have chosen you and have not rejected you. (Isaiah 41:8-9) Obedient or not, Israel remained His servant: Hear, you deaf! And look, you blind, and see. Who is blind but My servant, or deaf as My messenger whom I send? Who is blind as he who is at peace, and blind as servant of ( ?Isaiah 42:18-19) 12 IRREVOCABLE BLESSINGS The irrevocable blessings are promised to His servant Israel and his offspring: But now hear, O Yaaqob My servant, and Yisral whom I have chosen. Thus said who made you and formed you from the womb, who helps you, Do not fear, O Yaaqob My servant, and Yeshurun1, whom I have chosen. For I pour water on the thirsty, and floods on the dry ground. I pour My Spirit on your seed, and My blessing on your offspring, (Isaiah 44:1-3) .. beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling of

Elohim are not to be repented of. (Romans 11:28-29) will not forget His servant, Israel! Remember these matters, O Yaaqob, and Yisral, for you are My servant! I have formed you, you are My servant, O Yisral, do not forget 13 Me! (Isaiah 44:21) ATONEMENT O nations, acclaim His people! For He avenges the blood of His servants, ... And shall pardon His land, His people. (Deuteronomy 32:43) not only promises to avenge His people of their enemies, but the same verse says He promises to provide atonement for them. The last phrase of the Song is very significant (and very Messianic): He will provide atonement for His land and His people. Heading into Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Everyone is

contemplating their lives, looking for sin and repenting. But something is oddly missing in the Song of Moshe as it ends with atonement. Where is repentance? The Rabbis teach that atonement comes as the result of repentance. Yet, at the end of the plan of as so eloquently expressed by the Song of Moshe, we see nothing that precedes atonement. Instead, it appears purely as a gift of grace. 14 HOW PROVIDES ATONEMENT http://www.shalom.org.uk/ The lesson of the Law is plain; He provides a sacrifice for sin. He ordains that a substitute can bear the penalty of sin in our place. This is the teaching of all the laws of sacrifice in Leviticus. This was the heart of the ritual of Yom Kippur in temple times. The focus was not on the repentance of the people, important though that was; it was on the actions of the High Priest in the temple. In fact, the people were not even told to go to Jerusalem at that

time (Deuteronomy 16:16); their presence was totally unnecessary. Only the priest and the sacrifices were needed. Today there is no temple and so no atonement, it would seem. Can Israel even know God to be for them? Yes, there is a way. And because a way had been provided by the LORD the old temple has been removed. The LORD sent His son, Messiah Yeshuah, into this fallen world to pay the price of sin, to give Himself as a sacrifice and to die for sinners. God then raised Him from the dead as a declaration that He is His Son and that the sacrifice was 15 accepted. HOW PROVIDES ATONEMENT cont Sin has not only been atoned for (covered) it has been removed altogether! These are facts of history. Yeshuah came, died on a cross, and was raised from the dead. He is Gods provision for the expiation of our sin. As the sinner came to the temple and placed his hand on the animal to

be killed in his place, thus transferring the guilt of his sins to the animal, so you must do that in faith toward Yeshuah. You must trust that He suffered in your place, as the LORD God of Israel to forgive your sins, not just on one day, but now and forever. His promise is this, Whoever believes in Him (Yeshuah) shall not perish but have everlasting life. (Gospel of John 3:16) 16 PARALLELED WITH PROPHECIES Concerning the judgments against His people: I gather evils upon them, I use up My arrows upon them Wasted by scarcity of food, And consumed by heat and bitter destruction, And the teeth of beasts I send upon them, With the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword bereaves from the outside, And fear from within, Both young man and maiden, Nursing child with the man of grey hairs. (Deuteronomy 32:23-25)

And they shall know that I am , when I scatter them among the gentiles. And I shall disperse them throughout the lands. But I shall let a few of their men escape from the sword, from scarcity of food, and from pestilence, so that they recount all their abominations among the gentiles wherever they go. And they shall know that I am . (Ezekiel 12:15-16) 17 PARALLELED WITH PROPHECIES Concerning the enemy taking the credit for victories against Israel: If I did not fear the enemys taunt, Lest their adversaries misunderstand, Lest they say, Our hand is high, And has not done all this. (Deuteronomy 32:27) As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Yisral was laid waste, so I do to you: be a ruin, O Mount Sir, as well as all of Edom, all of it! And they shall know that I am . (Ezekiel 35:15) Concerning His compassion for His wayward servants:

For rightly rules His people And has compassion on His servants, When He sees that their power is gone, And there is no one remaining, Shut up or at large. (Deuteronomy 32:36) And you shall know that I am , when I have dealt with you for My Names sake, not according to your evil ways nor according to your corrupt deeds, O house of Yisral, declares the Master . (Ezekiel 18 20:44) PARALLELED WITH PROPHECIES Concerning vengeance against the nations: If I have sharpened My flashing sword, And My hand takes hold on judgment, I shall return vengeance to My enemies, And repay those who hate Me. I make My arrows drunk with blood, And My sword devours flesh, With the blood of the slain and the captives, From the long-haired enemy chiefs. (Deuteronomy 32:41-42) and execute great vengeance on them with raging reproofs. And they shall

know that I am , when I lay My vengeance upon them. (Ezekiel 25:17) Concerning His mercy on His Land and His people: .. For He ...shall pardon His land, His people. (Deuteronomy 32:43) And I shall make the house of Yehudah mighty, and save the house of Yosph. And I shall bring them back, because I have compassion on them. And they shall be as though I had not pushed them aside. For I am their Elohim, and I answer them. (Zechariah 10:6) 19 HIS NAME The Song of Moshe reveals to us s perfect plan/will with the last phrase of the Song focused on the work of His Son. Knowing His plan, becomes a revelation of His Name of what His Name represents. This is how we will know that He is . His Name embodies all of His characteristics, and it also embodies His plan/will. With that definition of knowing His Name, we can derive more meaning from verses that

refer to His Name: s name means salvation and that was the plan! And she shall give birth to a Son, and you shall call His Name for He shall save His people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21) If salvation was the ultimate plan, then s Name was above all other Names/plans! Elohim, therefore, has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name, (Philippians 2:9) 20 HIS NAME Two or three people together for His purposes: For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst. (Matthew 18:20) People who knew what His Name was, but did not know His plan: Many shall say to Me in that day, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and

done many mighty works in Your Name? And then I shall declare to them, I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness! (Matthew 7:22-23) Recognizing the plan: took the branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and were crying out, Hoshia-na! Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of , the Sovereign of Yisral! (John 12:13) The Almighty ALWAYS follows His plan: You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He might give you. (John 21 15:16) HIS NAME What happened when He revealed the Name (plan) to His disciples? They kept His Word! I have revealed Your Name to the men whom You gave Me out of the

world. They were Yours, and You gave them to Me, and they have guarded Your Word. (John 17:6) The only way we can be saved is through the ultimate Name/plan: And there is no deliverance in anyone else, for there is no other Name under the heaven given among men by which we need to be saved. (Acts 4:12) Parasha Haazinu is only one chapter in the Scriptures, but it holds the keys to the plan of . Lets together proclaim His Name! For I proclaim the Name of , Ascribe greatness to our Elohim. The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are right-ruling, An l of truth and without unrighteousness, Righteous and straight is He. 22 (Deuteronomy 32:3-4)
