|Heartening, comforting words It shall be well, Well with the far and the near —said Hashem— And I will heal themIsaiah 57:19 (The Israel Bible™)
בּוֹרֵא נִיב שְׂפָתָיִם שָׁלוֹם שָׁלוֹם לָרָחוֹק וְלַקָּרוֹב אָמַר יְהֹוָה וּרְפָאתִיו

bo-RAY NEEV s’-fa-TA-yim sha-LOM sha-LOM la-ra-KHOK v’-la-ka-ROV a-MAR a-do-NAI ur-fa-TEEV
The prophet Isaiah promised that God will provide the exiles who return to the Land of Israel with healing and comfort. The blessing of peace is proffered both to the far (those still in exile) and to the near (the exiles who already arrived in the Land of Israel). Today, Israel is a leader in the worlds of medicine, surgery, and biotechnology. There is no doubt, that the ancient words of Isaiah are being fulfilled before our very eyes!
