The voice that redeems us
comes from within.
Said Rabbi Eleazar HaModai:
Consider the courage of Israel.
When Moses said to the people in Egypt,
“Arise and go forth,”
they did not ask,
“How can we go into the wilderness
with no sustenance for the way?”
They had faith and went forward.
The voice that lifts up the lowly,
upholds the exhausted,
and tells us to put one foot in front of the other—
sometimes it comes from within.
