And Now Your Two Sons, Who Were Born

73) “And now your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt.” This is Israel below, in the exile, and they are the sons of the Creator, which are born among the nations. The text relates to Israel, who are in exile in the nations, since the land of Egypt includes all the exiles. Israel, who will be in the holy land of Israel, are sitting in the land. When the Messiah comes, they will be in their place with their brothers, since it is considered exile only for those who dwell in a foreign land, and are called “exiles.” But those who dwell in the land of Israel are not called “exiles” and are not in exile even before the arrival of the Messiah. This is why the text makes the precision, “Who were born to you in the land of Egypt,” who are regarded as exiles, and not those who are born in the land of Israel.

74) “And I will remember My covenant with Jacob.” The Vav of Jacob is in excess, which indicates that the Vav that departed when the house was ruined will come and will assist Jacob at the time of redemption. And the holy son, Jacob, will have a permanent lot in the land and his sons will be in their land, in which they lived before, happy are they.

75) Now, sons that were deported abroad and forgotten are discerned as Menasheh, and who were fruitful and multiplied are considered Ephraim. And the upper Jacob, who is ZA, said to the one below, “Your sons, who are abroad, who were born in exile in each and every land before I came to Egypt and executed judgment upon them for their iniquities, I do not consider all those creatures in exile abroad, in a foreign land, as your sons. And although they are many, meaning Ephraim, and are forgotten, which is Menasheh, they are My sons. And when I saw this exile of theirs, I healed their pains and I heard their prayer.

It is written about it, “Before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; Ephraim and Menasheh are to Me as Reuben and Shimon [Simeon].” Reuben, “For the Lord saw the affliction”; Shimon, “Because the Lord heard [Shama] that I am hated.” Ephraim and Menasheh means that they multiplied in the exile and were forgotten. “[They] are to Me as Reuben and Shimon” means that He will see their affliction, will hear their prayer, and will redeem them, as implied in the names, Reuben and Shimon. Think in your heart as though they are before Me, and when we return from Egypt, which includes all the exiles, after the judgment is executed in them, we will deliver them from the land of their exile.

76) We learn from this that after He executes judgment in Egypt, which includes all the nations, Israel will be redeemed from the exile, as it is written, “And they shall bring all your brothers out of all the nations for an offering unto the Lord.” This means that when the Creator is in Din [judgment] in Egypt, meaning in all the nations, all the peoples will bring an offering when they hear of the Creator, as it is written, “And all the nations shall flow unto Him.”

77) The Creator will make a Huppah [wedding canopy] for every righteous in Jerusalem, as it is written, “The voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride,” when Divinity returns to the King and she is engaged. “On the day of his wedding, and on the day of his gladness of heart.” “On the day of his wedding” is the giving of the Torah. “And on the day of his gladness of heart” is the building of the Temple, may it be built soon in our days.

78) “But your offspring that have been born after them shall be yours.” This is Israel below, which will be born after the redemption, to the patriarchs, which are Merkavot [chariots/assemblies]. Their names—those who were born after the redemption—will be named after their brothers; they will be named in their lot.

79) “But your offspring” is Jerusalem below. “Your offspring” are the people who will be born in this Jerusalem, once the world returns to the Master of heaven, since they will convert after the redemption. They will be named after the sons of Israel and not after their fathers, like the proselyte from Kaputkia, but by the name of Israel.

80) “Shall be yours” means that they will be named after Israel. They will be named after their brothers in their lot. And when they return, they will settle with Israel in the land and each tribe will take its own. And for people of theirs who are strangers, each will inherit from the land according to his number.
