493) When the dead of the world awaken and come to the holy land, the camps of all will rise over the land of the Galilee. It is so because the Messiah king is destined to be revealed there, as he is the portion of Joseph, and there they broke first, meaning that from there they were first exiled from all their places, to be dispersed among the nations, as it is written, “And they have not grieved over the ruin of Joseph. Therefore, they will now go into exile at the head of the exiles.”

494) Those who are to be revived will rise there because it is the part of the one who was placed in the coffin, as it is written, “And he was embalmed and placed in a coffin in Egypt.” Afterwards he was buried in the holy land, as it is written, “And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, they buried in Shechem,” and Joseph kept the keeping of the covenant more than all the tribes.

495) At that time, when all the camps arise over the land of the Galilee, they will all go, one to the portion of his fathers, and one to the portions of his fathers, as it is written, “And each of you shall return to his own property,” and they will recognize each other. The Creator is destined to clothe each one with embroidered garments, and they will all come and praise their Master in Jerusalem. Then multitudes will bond there, and Jerusalem will spread to all sides, more than it had spread when they bonded there upon their return from the exile.

496) When they bond and praise their Master, the Creator will rejoice with them, as it is written, “And they will come and shout for joy on the height of Zion.” Subsequently, it is written, “And they will flow the bounty of the Lord,” each to his own portion and the portion of his fathers. And the portion of Israel will be up to the high Rome, and there they will learn Torah. It is written, “You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy,” and the portion of Israel will reach up to the great Rome, and there they learn Torah. That is, they will conquer it and bring it back to sanctity.
