900.12a Hester Panim (pps.124-126)
hard cover page 125
And I will hide within hiddenness My face in that day.
And when ye spread forth your hands,
I will hide Mine eyes from you;
Yea, when ye make many prayers,
I will not hear.
And I will wait for the Lord, that hideth His face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for Him.
Verily Thou art a God that hidest Thyself.
In a little wrath I hid My face from thee for a moment.
I hid Me and was wroth.
And your sins have hid His face from you.
For Thou hast hid Thy face from us.
When He hides His face, who can behold Him?
Oh that I knew where I might find Him!
Where is there an allusion to Esther in the Torah?
“And I will hide My face” [Deuteronomy 31:181.

502 See Glatzer, The Dimensions of Job, p. 62. “Job believes now, as later Deutero-Isaiah (Isa. 45: 15) did under the influence of Isaiah (8:17),in ‘a God that hides Himself.’ This hiding, the eclipse of the divine light, is the source of his abysmal despair. . . . Deutero-Isaiah expressed (40:27) the despairing complaint of the faithful remnant which thinks that because God hides Himself, Israel’s ‘way’ also ‘is hid’ from Him, and He pays no more attention to it.
