Holy Zohar text. Daily Zohar -1901


Hebrew translation:

16. וְעוֹד, הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא וּשְׁכִינָתוֹ עֵדִים עַל הָאָדָם, זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (דברים ל) הַעִידֹתִי בָכֶם הַיּוֹם אֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת הָאָרֶץ. אֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם – אוֹתוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר בּוֹ (מלכים-א ח) וְאַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע הַשָּׁמַיִם. וְאֶת הָאָרֶץ – אוֹתוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר בּוֹ (ישעיה סו) וְהָאָרֶץ הֲדֹם רַגְלָי. וְעוֹד, שְׁנֵי עֵדִים – הָעַמּוּד הָאֶמְצָעִי וְצַדִּיק. וְהֵם אוֹתִיּוֹת ע”ד מִשְּׁמַע אֶחָד. עֵ”ד – מִבָּרוּךְ שֵׁם כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

Continued from DZ 1604

The Holy One Blessed be He and the Shechina are our witnesses on Rosh Hashanah and throughout the year.

Deuteronomy 30:19
“הַעִדֹתִי בָכֶם הַיּוֹם, אֶת-הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת-הָאָרֶץ”
“”I call heaven and earth to as your witnesses, today”

The two witnesses are:
The heaven, which is the aspect of the Central column, Zeir Anpin and Yessod that is righteous.
1 Kings 8:32
“וְאַתָּה תִּשְׁמַע הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְעָשִׂיתָ וְשָׁפַטְתָּ אֶת-עֲבָדֶיךָ”
“Then hear in heaven and act and judge your servants”

The earth is Malchut
Isaiah 66:1
“כֹּה, אָמַר יְהוָה, הַשָּׁמַיִם כִּסְאִי, וְהָאָרֶץ הֲדֹם רַגְלָי”
“Thus says YHVH, “Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool”

The Zohar reveals that the first witness of Zeir Anpin is represented by the two large letters ע and ד from the verse of “Shema Israel”. These two letters עד means ‘witness’.

The ‘witness’ of Malchut is represented by the last two letters, עד, of the verse “Baruch Shem…” that follows. See image below.


The ‘witness’ of Malchut reveals all of our actions.

The witness of Zeir Anpin reveals the Light we revealed through our actions and spiritual connections.

In DZ 1604 we studied about the tools that can help us prepare for Rosh Hashana and have the witnesses on our side..
