Haftorah Beam - Masei

The Haftorah for this Parshah (last year it was a double parsha, but this year Matot and Masei are separate) culminates the cycle of readings from the 17th of Tammuz to Tisha B'Av (the anniversary of the destruction of both Temples).  These readings follow the course of Israel's fall from grace which caused destruction and exile.

5 Thus said the Lord:What wrong did your fathers find in MeThat they abandoned MeAnd went after delusion and were deluded?6 They never asked themselves, "Where is the Lord,Who brought us up from the land of Egypt,Who led us through the wilderness,A land of deserts and pits,A land of drought and darkness,A land no man had traversed,Where no human being had dwelt?"

And yet, the final verse promises hope:
Chapter 3
Just now you called to Me, "Father!
You are the Companion of my youth."
