The Awakening of G-d
ההתעוררות של הקדוד ברוך הוא
Shmot 2. 24-25-שמות
24.’ And G-d heard their wailing and G-d remembered His Covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob-וַיִּשְׁמַע אֱלֹהִים אֶת נַאֲקָתָם וַיִּזְכֹּר אֱלֹהִים אֶת בְּרִיתוֹ אֶת אַבְרָהָם אֶת יִצְחָק וְאֶת יַעֲקֹב (4699=28=20=1 or 6939=27=1+8 counting final Mems as 600).
And G-d heard
512=8 or 1072=10=1
And G-d remembered
329=14=8 or 889+2 words =891=18 (Mem as 600)
The joint gematria of the words:
· And G-d heard- וַיִּשְׁמַע אֱלֹהִים = 512 or 1072
· And G-d remembered- וַיִּזְכֹּר אֱלֹהִים = 329 or 889
841+ 4 words=17=8 or 1961=17=8 (Mems 600)
25.’ And G-d saw the Children of Israel and G-d knew- וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים אֶת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיֵּדַע אֱלֹהִים (2603+7 words=2610=1+8).
The verse can be divided so:
· And G-d saw- וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים (303+2 words=8 or 863 =17=8);
· The Children of Israel-אֶת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל (1004+3 words =8);
· And G-d knew- וַיֵּדַע אֱלֹהִים (176=14=8 or 736+2 words=18 counting final Mem as 600).
Rashi comments here that Hashem “knew”- וַיֵּדַע as He concentrated His heart and did not hide His eyes.
Hashem knew what was occurring as He had descended to Egypt with Jacob. The plastering of the infants in the walls was above and beyond what the Egyptians were “permitted” to do.
Thus “He knew” that the time had come for Israel to be redeemed.
In this and the previous verse Hashem’s “actions” are described in 4 ways:
1. And He heard - וַיִּשְׁמַע =426
2. And He remembered- וַיִּזְכֹּר =243
3. And He saw- וַיַּרְא =217
4. And He knew- וַיֵּדַע =90
These 4 “actions” correspond to the 4 “actions” that Hashem was to do when he redeemed the Children of Israel from Egypt. These are known as the “Four ‘languages’ of Redemption"- ארבע לשונות של גאולה (Shmot 6.6-7):
1. And I shall remove you- אֶתְכֶם וְהוֹצֵאתִי =1539
2. And I shall save you- אֶתְכֶם וְהִצַּלְתִּי =1562
3. And I shall redeem you- אֶתְכֶם וְגָאַלְתִּי =1471
4. And I shall take you - אֶתְכֶם וְלָקַחְתִּי =1004
6147=18 (Mems 600)
Four Languages of Redemption
ארבע לשונות של גאולה
The number 1440 is tenfold the gematria of the word "Kedem"- -קֶדֶםOrigin (144). This is where we will return to, the World to Come that is waiting for us since before the beginning of time. Only then will we know the "Truth"-אֶמֶת (441).
The 4 “actions” of Redemption of Hashem in our verse correspond to the 4 "languages" of Redemption" in Shmot 6.6-7 i:
1. And He heard-And I shall remove you- וַיִּשְׁמַע- וְהוֹצֵאתִי אֶתְכֶם=1441=10=1
2. And He remembered-And I shall save you- וְהִצַּלְתִּי אֶתְכֶם וַיִּזְכֹּר-=1805+3 words=17=8 (Mem 600)
3. And He saw- And I shall redeem you- וְגָאַלְתִּי אֶתְכֶם וַיַּרְא-=1688+3 words=1692=18 (Mem as 600)
4. And He knew- And I shall take you-וְלָקַחְתִּי אֶתְכֶם –וַיֵּדַע =1665=18 (Mem 600)
Now that Hashem "knew"it was time… it was now time to inform Moses of his mission…
