Carefully interpret this text, demonstrating what this text tells us about the nature and understanding of the galut and its cause or causes?

Rabbi Jonathan Eibeshütz (who lived in the 17th and 18th centuries) wrote the following: “One must weep ceaselessly over the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the restoration of the glory of King David, for that is the object of human perfection. If we do not have Jerusalem and the kingdom of the House of David, why should we have life?...Since our many transgressions have led to the Destruction and to the desolation of our glorious Temple and the kingdom of the House of David, the degree to which we suffer the absence and lack of good is known to all. Surely have we descended from life unto death. And the converse is also true: ‘When the Lord restores the captivity of Zion,’ we shall ascend from death unto life. Certainly the heart of anyone who possesses the soul of a Jew is broken when he recalls the destruction of Jerusalem” (Hertzberg, p. 217).
