Daily Zohar # 1482 – Acharei Mot – Songs
Zohar Acharei Mot
“שִׁיר מִזְמוֹר, לִבְנֵי-קֹרַח”
“גָּדוֹל יְהוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד– בְּעִיר אֱלֹהֵינוּ, הַר-קָדְשׁוֹ”
“A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. Great is YHVH and greatly to be praised in the city of our God! His holy mountain,”
Rabbi Shimon teaches that when a Psalms begins with two words describing a ‘song’ and psalms like the example above, it has greater value than others. Like Psalms 92:1 “ מִזְמוֹר שִׁיר, לְיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת.” “A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day”
Song of Songs is a song that is above all other songs.
King David who represents our state in Malchut wrote 150 Psalms. He used 10 types of songs that is the aspect of the Ten Sefirot. The upper three Sefirot of Keter, Chokma and Binah are represented by יה YH, numerically 15. (15×10= 150).
Psalms help with the correction of our vessels and they are mostly recited during the day time. When the Zohar quotes and studies Psalms verses, it reveals the light concealed in the deeper secrets from the words of the Psalms.
The next DZ project is the study of Psalms from the writings of the Zohar. That will be the ultimate connection between the upper and lower levels. There’s a lot of preparation and B”H I will have the merit to start and complete this study.
It’s a good place for you to share your favorite Psalms as well as songs made from Psalms.
