Answer: A person sighs because he cannot exit Egypt because of his egoism. But he suffers not only from egoistic thoughts and desires that are passed on to him from the Egyptians but also from the questions that arise in him: “Who is the Creator?” and “Why do I need this work?” This is what makes his work so hard.
He wants to get out of the egoistic world into the altruistic one so that all his actions are for the sake of bestowal, so that he does not ask for anything for them, but only fulfills them.
Let others receive all the reward and even so that he does not know about it and they would not know about him. This is what the person desires. Yet, he does not succeed. Then he comes to his last cry.
