The days of Israel drew near to die.
He summoned his son Joseph and said to bim,
"If I have found favor in your eyes, place your hand under my
act toward me out of true love: please do not bury me in Egypt.
I will lie down with my fathers;
then take me out of Egypt and bury me in their burial place. "
Rabbi Judah opened and said
" 'Listen, you deaf ones!
You blind ones, look up and see!'
'Listen, you deaf ones!'
you human beings who do not hear Torah speaking,
who do not open your ears to let in the commands of your Master.
'You blind ones'
who do not examine your own foundations,
who do not seek to know why you are alive!
Every single day a herald comes forth and proclaims
but no one hears his message!
It has been taught:
When a human being is created,
on the day he comes into the world,
simultaneously, all the days of his life are arranged above.
One by one, they come flying down into the world
to alert that human being, day by day.
If, when a day comes to alert him,
he sins on that day before his Master,
then that day climbs up in shame,
bears witness, and stands alone outside.
