House of Slaves

Regarding the Exodus, the Torah states that God redeemed us from the House of Slaves. The Egyptians were initially a House of Slaves – a lowly nation. God transformed them into a superpower only for the sake of the Jewish people. He raised Pharaoh to the greatest height in order to magnify his fall, thereby proving God’s power to the Jews and to the world. G-d did the same with Haman, Sancheriv and others. Regarding the final redemption as well, God will grant great powers to rulers and nations only to magnify their collapse, so that all will recognize God’s mighty acts on our behalf. ~ Eitz HaChaim
