402. "And Moses erected the Tabernacle" (Shemot 40:18). Rabbi Yehuda opened the discussion with the verse: "Rejoice not against me, O my enemy: when I fall, I shall arise..." (Michah 7:8). "My enemy" refers to the evil kingdom, the enemy of the holy kingdom. This verse is said by the Congregation of Yisrael, THE HOLY KINGDOM. "Rejoice not against me, O my enemy: when I fall, I shall arise," not so the other, EVIL kingdom. Once it falls, it will never rise again. But the Congregation of Yisrael, though she fell, she rises, and has risen many times, as it is written, "when I fall, I shall arise."
403. How many times did the Congregation of Yisrael fall into exile, and sat in the midst of all these enemies. And the rest of the nations and idolaters, rose against Yisrael to exterminate them, as it is said, "They hold crafty converse against your people... For they have consulted together with one consent... They have said, 'Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation'" (Tehilim 83:4-6). With all that, and though the rest of the nations rose against them, the Holy One, blessed be He did not leave them in their hands, and if they fell, they arose, as it is written, "when I fall, I shall arise," as the Holy One, blessed be He always raises her.
404. And when the Holy One, blessed be He will raise her from the dust of exile, the Congregation of Yisrael, MALCHUT, will say, "Rejoice not against me, O my enemy: when I fall, I shall arise;" because "I fall" into exile, and my children became slaves, "I shall arise," now. For at the time when Moses brought Yisrael out OF EGYPT, and when the Holy One, blessed be He performed miracles and mighty deeds, then, it is written, "Moses erected the Tabernacle." Because through the hands of Moses, THE SECRET OF ZEIR ANPIN, the Tabernacle was erected, WHICH IS MALCHUT, each time.
