If There Is an Angel as Mediator for Him

1) See how people must follow the path of the Creator and keep the commandments of the Torah so that through it, they will be rewarded with the next world, and be saved from all the accusers above and below. This is so because as there are accusers in the world below, there are accusers above who are ready to slander people.

2) Those who keep the commandments of the Torah and walk on the straight path fearing their Master, how many advocates do they have above, as it is written, “If there is an angel as mediator for him”? It is also written, “Then let him be gracious to him, and say, ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.’” For this reason, happy is he who keeps the commandments of the Torah.

3) And why the need for an angel to advocate a person? After all, it is written, “For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.” It is also written, “The Lord will keep you from all evil,” that the Creator sees all that a man does in the world, both good and bad, and He says, “‘Can a man hide himself in hiding places so I do not see him?’ declares the Lord.” Hence, why do I need an angel to recommend or reprimand?

4) The Creator certainly sees everything. Yet, it is written, “However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh.” It is also written, “You incited Me against him to ruin him without cause,” to show that he was given to the hands of the other side, to slander the things in the world and to have them given to him. And those things are hidden from the Creator and you are not fit to follow them and study them, since they are the laws of the Creator and people are not permitted to scrutinize them, except those true righteous who know the secrets of the Torah and walk by the path of wisdom, to know those things that are hidden in the Torah.

It is written, “Happy is the people that know the joyful shout,” who know the ways of the Creator—that He shouts for joy and benefits through messengers although He can do it Himself. And here in the words, “Come unto Pharaoh,” the Creator wanted Pharaoh to send the children of Israel even though He could have delivered them against his will.
