"Chazon Y'sha'yohu..." (Isaiah 1:1). They can be remembered through the

that is usually read with the Torah portion of that week, then on the
following week one should recite both "Divrei Yirmiyahu" and "Shim'u d'var
Hashem," since one directly follows the other [in the Book of
Jeremiah]. When Rosh Chodesh Av falls on Shabbos, we recite [the usual
Rosh Chodesh Haftoroh,] "HaShomayim Kis'i..." (Isaiah 66). However, there
are certain communities that recite "Shim'u D'var Hashem..." in that instance.
