"Go out! Go out! Leave that place! Don't touch anything unclean! Leave her midst! Keep
pure, you that carry Yahveh's vessels." Isaiah 52:11
Although these verses speak of the return of the Babylonian exile, they also convey
the future Messianic climax, which is the theme of the final chapters of the book of Isaiah.
The Book of Isaiah contains inspirational words of encouragement for Israel and the world at large. It stresses that Israelā€™s
exile will be temporary and that Yahveh will eventually redeem His people and settle them permanently in His land. But Israel must be ready for
their Redemption when it comes and remember that they 'carry Yahveh's vessels' - which is a metaphor for the Torah and its values. Like the Israelites,
we too are called to 'keep pure' and not to 'touch anything unclean'.
"Is it too little for you to be My servant? I will make you a light to the nations, so My Salvation
will reach the ends of the earth." Isaiah 49:6
