Chapter Summary

This sermon announces that man, in this world, is a warrior fighting for the Lord against evil inclination in order to bring him to the tradition of the Covenant through Divine Torah. Job alludes to this war saying,all the days of my appointed time of service would I wait, till my relief should come. In each one of the three worlds different kinds of service are discerned. The first "service" consists completely of peace; the second "service" is entirely made of quarrel and strife; the third is intermediate it begins with the censure of warfare and concludes with the praise of agreement and peace. The rabbinic statement agrees with Isaiah's statement:trust ye in the Lord for ever, for the Lord is God, an everlasting Rock. From the details of the precept one will understand and know how suitable is for man to strengthen his trust in his God.
