(31:21) “V’Hoyo Ki Simtzaun Oso Raos Rabos V’Tzarus V’ansah Ha’Shira Ha’Zos-It Shall be when you will encounter great evil and distress, then this song shall be the answer.”
How will this song answer the question for all the persecution Israel has endured? The centuries of exiles, torture and displacement, of attempted extermination? The answer is found in the promise given at the end of this verse. “Ki Lo Sishokach Mipi Zaroh-For it will not be forgotten from the mouths of your off spring.”
Despite all of the attempts to eradicate the Torah from the mouths of the Jewish nation, Torah is perhaps more alive and thriving than ever. This promise, made thousands of years ago has been challenged, has been vindicated, has been questioned time and again and yet we find “Lo Sishokach Mipi Zaroh-It will not be forgotten from the mouths of your off spring.”
It is eternal and is something that continues to guide us to this very day.
