When the Night Grows Dark

5) “As birds trapped in a snare, so the sons of men are ensnared.” People do not know and do not hear and do not observe their Master’s will. And the announcer calls before them daily, and there is no one to listen and no one to awaken one’s spirit to the work of his Master.

6) When the night grows dark and the gates close, the Nukva of the great abyss awakens and several armies of damagers are in the world. At that time, the Creator puts all the people in the world to sleep. He puts to sleep even all those who have awakening of life, meaning the righteous. And the spirits roam the world and announce things to people in their dreams. Some of them are lies and some of them are true. And people become connected in their sleep.

7) And when the north wind awakens and the night divides, a flame bursts out and strikes under the wings of the rooster, and he calls. Then the Creator enters the Garden of Eden to play with the righteous, and an announcer comes out and calls, and all the people in the world awaken in their beds. And those with awakening of life rise up from their beds to the work of their Master, and engage in Torah and in praising the Creator until the morning comes.

8) When the morning comes, all the armies and camps above praise the Creator. Then, several gates open to all sides, and Abraham’s gate, Hesed [mercy], opens in the assembly of Israel, Malchut, to summon all the people in the world to enjoy the Hassadim [mercies]. It is written, “And Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba,” since Malchut is called Beersheba, and Abraham planted the tree of Hesed in it.

9) And one who cannot awaken his spirit to serve his master, with what face will he rise before the King when judgment is evoked upon him, and he is caught and chained, meaning when he is imprisoned so as to be brought to judgment? He will not have the merit to be saved. It is written about that, “As birds trapped in a snare.” As they, “So the sons of men are ensnared.” And before a person leaves this world, the soul with the body are sentenced to several judgments before they part, and there is no one to watch over it.
