Pekudei: Chapter 41

"when I fall, I shall arise"


Rabbi Yehuda begins with the verse: "Rejoice not against me, O my enemy: when I fall, I shall arise..." He says that this means the evil kingdom of the Other Side will not rise again, unlike the Congregation of Yisrael that will always rise again. Even though the other nations of the world have tried to exterminate Yisrael so many times, God always raised them up again. When Moses brought them out of Egypt God did many miracles to help them, and after that Moses erected the Tabernacle.
