Daily Zohar # 1568 – Matot – Souls of Chessed
“כִּי-אָמַרְתִּי–עוֹלָם, חֶסֶד יִבָּנֶה; שָׁמַיִם, תָּכִן אֱמוּנָתְךָ בָהֶם”
“For I have said: ‘World is mercy (Chessed) will be built; in the very heavens Thou you establish your faithfulness.”
God calls the souls of the Israelites, Chessed. The world was created with Chessed and for the existence and correction of the souls of the children of Israel (Jacob).
Chessed is the seventh Sefira when we count from below and it is the one that ‘touches’ the Sefirah of Binah that delivers the life force to the world.
