Torah, “Deuteronomy,” 04:05 – 04:06: Behold, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, as the Lord, my God, commanded me, to do so in the midst of the land to which you are coming to possess. And you shall keep [them] and do [them], for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the eyes of the peoples, who will hear all these statutes and say, “Only this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”
This commandment suggests that if the people of Israel really begin performing the commandments correctly and carrying out all their actions not for their own sake, but for the sake of bestowal, for the benefit of others, and through them for the Creator, then all the nations of the world, all the properties of nature will come into harmony with each other and the world will come to universal balance.
And seeing the example of a happy life, humanity will say, “How wise and intelligent are these great people!”
