Daily Zohar # 1272 – Pinchas – When enemies lay under our feet
Continued from previous DZ
The prayer of the night is optional because there is no light of Chassadim to reveal. Malchut is in exile, protected by the King. When the morning comes, the right column is revealed. It is Chessed of Zeir Anpin, the aspect of the Redemption. It is also the aspect of the month of Nissan, (Aries), when the Israelites were first redeemed from the exile of Egypt.
Zeir Anpin is holding the Malchut in its right to bring Chassadim and correct the left column. The Redemption comes only with the correction of the Left, because it is judgment.
נְאֻם יְהוָה, לַאדֹנִי–שֵׁב לִימִינִי; עַד-אָשִׁית אֹיְבֶיךָ, הֲדֹם לְרַגְלֶיךָ”
“A Psalm of David. YHVH said unto my master: ‘Sit at My right side, until I make your enemies your footstool.”
This verse connects us to Jacob and his plan of bringing the Redemption after controlling the ‘enemies’ that are the Left side and judgment in the world.
The Zohar reveals the lesson that Jacob teaches us with his actions. Jacob knew that it will take time for his children to overcome the negative side so he allowed the left to have control over ‘Malchut’ while they were in exile.
