And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it under the doorpost which is in the sanctuary of the Lord.
And Joshua said to all the people, “Behold, this stone shall be a witness against us, for it has heard all the words of the Lord which He spoke to us; it shall be a witness against you, lest you deny your God.” (Prophets, Joshua, 24:25-27)
“Stone” (In Hebrew “Even“) from the word “Havana,” understanding. This is about a person’s heart, which he feels either as a stone or as something alive that has the ability to hear. No wonder the heart is called either an alive one or a stony one.
We need to make the stones feel, cry, and live and we would build a Temple to the Creator from such stones, that is, from our hearts. This is the basis for the people, for the country, and for all of humanity, and in principle, for the Creator.
Question: Until when is it necessary to warn the people and threaten them not to deny their God?
Answer: Until the end. Until complete correction (Gmar Tikkun). And each time a person will still receive punishments, rewards, and advance in such a way between this and that.
Question: Why do we not learn?
Answer: We learn. We cannot say that we do not learn from the past, but there are always new desires, new obstacles. We cannot take the old things and move on. Practically, when we reach the goal, we will see that, in principle, everything was good.
