(35) ...However, this is not the end of the matter. For all the Torah and commandments are given only "to refine Israel," which is the purification of the body as aforementioned (see letter Yud Bet). Then afterward, they will merit their true reward, which is adherence to God, which is the purpose of creation, as aforementioned (in letter Vav, Aleph Shin Aleph). And behold, this reward is expressed in the words "a holy nation." For by adhering to God, we become holy, as it says, "You shall be holy to the Lord your God." "For I am the Lord who sanctifies you."
(36) ...And you see that in the words "a kingdom of priests," all forms of work are expressed with the principle of "love your neighbor as yourself," which is a kingdom entirely made up of priests, and God is their inheritance, and they have no personal property from any material possessions. And perforce, we must acknowledge that this is the only definition that can be understood regarding this "kingdom of priests." For we cannot interpret it as referring to the offering of sacrifices on the altar because this cannot be said of the entire nation - who will offer them? The same applies to the taking of priestly gifts - who will give them? And similarly, to explain the holiness of the priests, has it not already been said, "and you shall be a holy nation?" Rather, the only meaning in the matter is that they have no personal property, and God is their inheritance. This is the lesson of "love your neighbor as yourself," which includes all of the Torah, as aforementioned. And in the words "a holy nation," all forms of reward are expressed, which is adherence to God, as aforementioned.
