This Shabbat’s weekly Torah portion Lech Lecha, Genesis 12:1 – 17:27, introduces Abraham, promises blessing to non-Jews who support Israel (Gen.. 12:3) and tells the world that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jews (Gen 12:7 etc etc).. The Haftara Prophets reading, Isaiah 40:27 – 41:16, includes Isaiah 40: 31:
Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
