Zeir Anpin includes six Sefirot of Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod and Yessod. Each of them has one of the permutations of the YHV name. יהו, הוי, ויה, יוה, היו, והי . There are 18 letters to represent the Tzadik (righteous) that connects Yessod and Malchut, channeling life energy through Zeir Anpin to the world.
The name יוד-הא-ואו with numerical value of 39 represents the six Sefirot.
Malchut is the H ה of the name and it represents the Shabbat. Because of the first sin, the flow of life energy became corrupted and to draw it on Shabbat we have 39 actions that we should avoid.
They are against the 39 curses that came on the participants in the sin.
Shabbat is our source of life and the most important connection to heal the impact of the first sin on us.
Shabbat rest is a state of connection to life using the prayers, three meals, Torah reading and Zohar study. We have six days of work to build our vessel. Making money is a tool for the spiritual work. We have one day to draw life that fills up our vessels and sustains the next six days.
