As Long as Moses Exists

385) “And the Lord said to Moses, ‘Behold, you are about to lie down with your fathers.’” As long as Moses was alive in the world, he protested against Israel so they would not be in sin before the Creator. And because Moses was among them, there will not be a generation such as that until the arrival of the generation of the Messiah King, when they see the glory of the Creator as they did. This is so because they had attained what other generations did not attain.

386) A maidservant saw on the sea what the eye of Prophet Ezekiel did not see. If the maidservants attained so much, it is even more so with the women of Israel, and even more so with their sons, even more so with their men, more so with the Sanhedrin, more so with the leaders, and especially so with Moses, the high and faithful prophet, who is above all of them. And now, if the merchants in the desert where speaking such wisdom, it is all the more so with the sages of the generation. And it is even more so with those who are before Rabbi Shimon, who study from him every day, and doubly so with Rabbi Shimon himself, who is superior to all of them.

387) After Moses died, it is written, “And this people will rise up, and go astray.” Woe unto the world when Rabbi Shimon departs it, when the fountains of wisdom are blocked in the world and a man seeks a word of wisdom, but none shall be found to speak. And the whole world will be erring in the Torah and there will be no one to evoke in the wisdom.

It is written about that time, “And if the whole congregation of Israel shall err,” meaning if they err in the Torah and do not know her ways and what they are because “and the matter is hidden from the eyes of the assembly,” meaning that there is none who knows how to reveal the depth of the Torah and her ways, woe unto those generations that will be in the world at that time.

388) At the time of the Messiah, the Creator will reveal profound secrets in the Torah, “For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” It is written, “And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord’; for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them.”
