31 Now these are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom before a king reigned over the Children of Israel.
Yaakov confronted his sons and asked them if this was so. They all responded, "Hear O' Israel (Yaakov)," No! We are not unworthy of your trust. "The Lord our G-d, The Lord is one!" The famous Shema that we are commanded twice a day to recite appears in the Torah with two enlarged letters -- the ayin, ע at end of Shema and the daled ד at the end of ehad. The two letters spell עד or testimony to the Oneness of Hashem. But, let us note that the Gematria is 74. Is that a hint to why the Shema was recited when Yaakov was unable to say when the end would be? Is Hashem telling us that 5774 is definitely the year of Geula?
As above, in verse 31, we see that every word, every letter in the Torah is prophecy. We will know soon what Hashem wanted us to find out even though Yaakov was not able to tell us outright.
I thank my friend Yisroel for giving me this information.
