The seven aliyot readings from the Torah begin at these verses:

Maftir: Exodus 17:14
Once more, God summons the forces of the deep to serve His purposes. The “lake of fire that burns with sulfur” engulfs the beast and false prophet, while the birds gorge on the slain armies that fought the LORD and His Hosts (Revelation 19:20-21). Satan himself along with all the evil is chained and thrown into the Abyss for a thousand years (Revelation 20:2-3).
