To continue from the last post:
There are exactly 3 times in the Torah where Yehoshua bin-Nun is referred to as Hoshea. The 1st 2 instances are all in the beginning of Parshat Shlach Lecha (Bamidbar 13:8, 13:16). The last instance is the 1st verse after Parshat Ha'azinu (Devarim 32:44).
In my humble opinion, this hints at the fact that the associated sins here will reach their tikkun by the year hinted at in that verse, at the latest 5796.
At that time:
- Moshe and Yehoshua will be together.
- Am Yisrael will be free of the sins against Yosef/Tzion (Mechirat Yosef, Chet HaMeraglim, and Chet Galut Bavel)
- They will bring to Am Yisrael a new song.
