Chapter Summary

The Heb. צבאךת is regularly rendered by Septuagint as ϰύριοϛ σαβαωϑρι = Lord of Hosts. Three Philonic passages quote verses from the Haftarot belonging to the Haftarot of Admonition, of the Haftarah series attested in the Pesikta d'Rav Kahana, while two cite from the Haftarah for the second week of Consolation, and eight quote from those recited on Rosh Hashanah, Shabbat Shuva, and Yom Kippur. However, there are no verses cited from any of the intervening Haftarot those from the fourth to the seventh weeks of Consolation. Rabbinic midrash has regularly assigned God's beneficial attributes of creativity and goodness to the Tetragrammaton and His regal and punitive aspects to the epithet Elohim. Finally, VII Spec. 1:299 contains a taxonomy of the commandments, dividing them into commands respecting behaviour, and those dealing with the proper attitude of mind. Clearly, the commands and prohibitions indicate Torah commandments.

Keywords: Haftarah; Pesikta d'Rav Kahana; Rabbinic midrash; Torah commandments
