89. Who caused all this? The raven, since at that time you will be like a dove. THIS ALLUDES TO THE RAVEN AND THE DOVE THAT NOAH SENT FROM THE ARK AFTER COMPARING THE ZOHAR TO NOAH'S ARK. There was another messenger named after you, like the raven that was originally sent FROM THE ARK but did not return from his mission and made his effort with forbidden abominations, about which it is said that the ignorant are abominable. AND HE SPENT HIS EFFORTS ON THEM, because of their money, and did not strive in his mission to cause the righteous to repent. It is as if he has not fulfilled the mission of his Master. RABBI MOSES KORDOVERO OF BLESSED MEMORY WROTE THAT IT REFERS TO JEROBOAM, THE SON OF NEBAT, WHO WAS WORTHY TO BE THE REDEEMER OF YISRAEL. HE FALTERED WITH THE GOLDEN CALVES, SINNED, AND CAUSED MANY OTHERS TO SIN. HE IS COMPARED TO THE RAVEN THAT BETRAYED HIS MISSION.
89. וּמַאן גָּרִים דָּא. עוֹרֵב דְּאַנְתְּ תְּהֵא בְּהַהוּא זִמְנָא, כַּיּוֹנָה. דְּשָׁלִיחַ אַחֲרָא דְּאִקְרֵי בִּשְׁמָךְ, כָּעוֹרֵב דְּאִשְׁתְּלַח בְּקַדְמֵיתָא, וְלָא אִתְהַדָר בִּשְׁלִיחוּתָא, דְּאִשְׁתְּדַּל בַּשְּׁקָצִים, דְּאִתְּמַר בְּהוֹן, עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ שֶׁקֶץ. בְּגִין מָמוֹנָא דִּלְהוֹן, וְלָא אִשְׁתָּדַּל בִּשְׁלִיחוּתֵיהּ לְאָהַדְרָא לְצַדִיקַיָּיא בְּתִיוּבְתָא. כְּאִילּוּ לָא עָבֵיד שְׁלִיחוּתָא דְּמָארֵיהּ.
