Under The Rule Of Pharaoh

168Rabash, Article 923, “And He Said, ‘When You Deliver the Hebrew Women'”:  “Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, ‘Every boy who is born, cast him in the Nile, and every girl, keep alive.’”

A son (Ben in Hebrew) means one who aspires to the Creator. A man (Gever in Hebrew) comes from the word “Mitgaber” (to overcome) and means the one who resists egoism and wants to rise above it.

Those people who regardless of the attributes of their gender want to rise to the quality of the Creator, bestowal and love, are called men because they overcome their egoism, work on it, and try to reach the next, altruistic level. Our egoism, called Pharaoh, commands drowning such people, destroying them within ourselves.

Question: Does it mean that there is such a force within us that tries to destroy these aspirations to exit egoism in advance?

Answer: Of course. The egoism that controls us is our main force.

Comment: But the force of egoism is under the control of an even higher force, the Creator.

My Response: That is correct. However, in general, Pharaoh is given the opportunity to rule over a person.

Question: So under whose authority is man: the Creator or the Pharaoh?

Answer: We are under the authority of the Creator who made it so that we are under the authority of the Pharaoh.
