- Hear now  what the Lord says; Rise; contend with the mountains, and may the hills hear My voice.
- Hear ye, O mountains, the controversy of the Lord; and you mighty ones, the foundations of the earth; for the Lord has a controversy with His people, and with Israel He shall contend.
- My people, what have I done, and how have I wearied you? Testify against Me.
- For I brought you up out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
(extract of the psalm 114 associated to this generation, verses 1 and 2 )
- When Israel left Egypt, the house of Jacob [left] a people of a strange tongue,
- Judah became His holy nation, Israel His dominion.
- Therefore , My people shall go into exile […]
- Therefore, the Lord has become wroth with His people, and He has stretched forth His hand upon them and has struck them, and the mountains have quaked, and their corpses were like spittle in the midst of the streets; with all this, His anger has not turned back, and His hand is still outstretched.
- And He shall raise an ensign to the nations from afar, and He shall whistle to him from the end of the earth, and behold, quickly, swiftly he shall come.
- He (God) stood  and meted out to the earth; He saw and caused nations to wander. And the everlasting mountains were shattered; the everlasting hills were humbled. The procedures of the world are His.
- The word of the Lord  that came to Micah the Morashtite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, [and] Hezekiah, the kings of Judah, which he prophesied concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.
- Hear, all you peoples; hearken, O land and the fullness thereof, and let the Lord God be a witness against you; the Lord from His Holy Temple.
- For behold, the Lord comes forth from His place, and He shall descend and tread upon the high places of the earth.
- And the mountains shall melt under Him, and the valleys shall split-as wax before fire, as water poured down a steep place.
- All this is because of the transgression of Jacob, and because of the sins of the house of Israel. Who is [the cause of] the transgression of Jacob? Is it not Samaria? And who [is the cause of] the high places of Judah? Is it not Jerusalem?
- The major phenomenon  of this period (fourteenth to eighteenth century) remains the mass migration of Jews to Poland and, in the sixteenth century to Lithuania, following the expulsions of Germany. This influx of Jewish population to the east promotes the development of a community that will become the largest in the European world.
(extract of the psalm 114 associated to this generation, verses 3 to 6 )
- The sea saw and fled; the Jordan turned backward.
- The mountains danced like rams, hills like young sheep.
- What frightens you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn backward?
- You mountains, that you dance like rams; you hills, like young sheep?
- And now , many nations shall gather upon you who say, « Let her be guilty, and our eyes shall gaze on Zion. »
- But they did not know the thoughts of the Lord; neither did they understand His counsel, for He gathered them as sheaves to a threshing floor.
- And the remnant  of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples-like dew sent by the Lord, like torrents of rain upon vegatation that does not hope for any man and does not wait for the sons of men.
- While  displaying a deep respect for rabbinical Judaism and attaching a mystical meaning to any religious practice, the Zohar, with innocent airs, seeks to diminish the authority of the Talmud. According to him, it is much more important to study Kabbalah than the Talmud, because the first gives rise to thought and allows it to penetrate all the mysteries of creation, while the study of the Talmud removes the intelligence all insight and depth. To study the Talmud, says the Zohar again, is to use his forces painfully against a very hard rock, which, after bitter labors and numerous blows (allusion to the rock which Moses struck), will let out a few rare drops of water; Cabal, on the other hand, is a springing source, to which it suffices to say a word in order to obtain in abundance a limpid and vivifying water. Finally, for the Zohar, the Talmud is a vile slave and the Cabal a marvelous princess.
(extract of the psalm 114 associated to this generation, verses 7 to 6 )
- From before the Master, Who created the earth, from before the God of Jacob,
- Who transforms the rock into a pond of water, the flint into a fountain of water.
