202) “And the daughter of Pharaoh came down.” When Israel parted from the Torah, promptly, “And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe in the Nile.” The quality of Din, called “the daughter of Pharaoh,” went down to bathe from the blood of Israel, from their flaw, the affront of Torah. Nile means Torah, and “Her maidens walked along by the Nile” are the nations that are walking and chasing Israel by the Nile because of the affront of Torah, that those who study it have abandoned it.

203) All things in the world depend on repentance and on the prayer that a man prays to the Creator. It is all the more so with one who sheds tears during his prayer, for there is no gate through which these tears do not come. It is written, “She opened it and saw the child.” “Opened” is Divinity, who stands over Israel like a mother over her children, opening, always in favor of Israel.

204) When she opened and saw the child, a delightful child, Israel, who always sin before their King and promptly plea before the Creator, repent and cry before Him as a son who cries before his father. It is written, “And behold a boy that wept.” Since he wept, all the harsh decrees in the world were removed from him. It is written, “She had pity on him,” meaning she was awakened toward him with compassion and she pitied him.

205) “And said, ‘This is one of the Hebrews’ children,’” who were soft at heart, and not from among the children of idolaters, who were stiff-necked and stiff-hearted. “The Hebrews’ children” are soft-hearted by the merit of the fathers and mothers to repent before their Master. “And called the child’s mother,” meaning Rachel Our Mother, who was weeping, as it is written, “A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping. Rachel is weeping for her children.” He cries, meaning Israel, and the child’s mother that cries is Rachel.

206) In the future, “With weeping they will come, and by supplication.” By merit of the child’s mother weeping, the mother of Israel, Rachel, they will come and gather from the exile. The redemption of Israel depends only on weeping. When they are completed, and when the tears that Esau cried before his father are through, then they will be redeemed. It is written, “Esau lifted his voice and wept.” These are the tears that brought Israel down to exile. Therefore, when these tears are through, by the weeping of Israel they will come out of exile, as it is written, “With weeping they will come, and by supplication I will lead them.”
