Chapter 122:6
Between the 17th of Tammuz and Tisha B'av

6. On the three Sabbaths that precede Tish'ah B'av, [it is customary] to recite three Haftoros that mention Divine retribution: "Divrei Yirmiyahu..." (Jeremiah 1:1), "Shim'u D'var Hashem..." (Jeremiah 2:4), and "Chazon Y'sha'yohu..." (Isaiah 1:1). They can be remembered through the acronym "D'shach".

If one errs on the first Shabbos [of the three] and recites the Haftoroh 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.
