The Day of Atonement
Here are the Torah, Haftarah and suggested Brit Chadasha (New Testament) readings for Yom Kippur.
• Leviticus 16:1-34
• Numbers 29:7-11
• Isaiah 57:14-58:14
• Revelation 5:1-14
It is to be a statute to you forever, that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you are to afflict your souls, and do no kind of work—both the native-born and the outsider dwelling among you. For on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. From all your sins you will be clean before Adonai. It is a Shabbat of solemn rest to you, and you are to afflict your souls. It is a statute forever.
(Leviticus 16:29-31 TLV)
On the tenth day of this seventh month, you are to have a sacred assembly. You are to deny yourselves and do no work.
(Numbers 29:7 TLV)
Is not this the fast I choose: to release the bonds of wickedness, to untie the cords of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to tear off every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, to bring the homeless poor into your house? When you see the naked, to cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will spring up speedily. Your righteousness will go before you, the glory of Adonai as your rear guard.” Then you will call, and Adonai will answer.
(Isaiah 58:6-9 TLV)
The Brit Chadasha
Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders—their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands. They were chanting with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea and everything in them, responding, “To the One seated on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and power forever and ever!” And the four living creatures kept saying, “Amen!” And the elders fell down and worshiped.
(Revelation 5:11-14 TLV))
