I'm trying to understand G-d's plan for creating wicked and sinful humans, waiting for 1600 years/10 generations for them to sin, wiping them out completely, then waiting for another 400 years for the other 10 generations to sin until Abraham (us, the Jews) appears on the scene and starts occupying himself with what the initial purpose of the creation was - studying Torah and keeping its laws.
Our Midrashim keep insisting on the fact that the Jews were the ultimate goal of the Creation:
- "ישראל עלו במחשבה תחילה"
- "בראשית: בשביל ישראל שנקראו ראשית"
- "הסתכל באורייתא וברא עלמא"
and many similar.
So, 2000 years - 1/3rd of the existence of the world was wasted on sinners, WHY?
