308) “Why do You stand far off, O Lord?” When the iniquities in the world cause, the Creator climbs up and people shout and shed tears, and there is no one to look after them, since the Creator has departed up above and they are denied repentance. It is written of that time, “And in Your great excellence, You overthrow those who rise against You.”

309) When the Creator robes in pride over the nations that will gather against Him, as it is written, “And the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His Messiah,” seventy commanders of armies will gather from every side with the armies of the whole world, to wage war against the holy city of Jerusalem and to grip unto the counsels of the Creator. And what do they say? “We will rise against the protector first, and then against His people and His palace.

310) Then the Creator will mock them, as it is written, “He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them.” At that time the Creator will robe in pride over them and will obliterate them from the world, as it is written, “And this shall be the plague.”

311) The Creator is destined to revive all those kings that have afflicted Israel and Jerusalem: Hadrian, Lupinus, Nebuchadnezzar, Sennacherib, and all the other kings in the world who have destroyed His house. He will give them dominion as in the beginning, and the rest of the nations will gather with them and they will wage war on Jerusalem. And the Creator will avenge them openly around Jerusalem, as it is written, “And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem.” It does not say, “Who will go,” but “Who have gone,” in past tense, since it concerns Nebuchadnezzar, etc., who have already gone.

Then, it is written, “And in Your great excellence, You overthrow those who rise against You.” And this is written for the time when the Messiah comes; this song is an eternal song.

312) “At the blast of Your nostrils the waters were piled up,” meaning at the same time. For that, there is this at that time, and at the time of the Messiah King, and at the time of Gog and Magog. “Stood up like a heap of liquids” is for the time of the next world, the joy of all the worlds.
