Daily Zohar # 1790 – Shemini – The Right will prevail
The Israelites are from the Right of God and the other nations are from the Left. Even when the Israelites are not following the righteous path, they are still on the Right.
“לְמַעַן, יֵחָלְצוּן יְדִידֶיךָ; הוֹשִׁיעָה יְמִינְךָ (ועננו) וַעֲנֵנִי.”
“That your beloved (the Israelites) may be delivered, save your Right, and answer me (us).”
The Right of God has the ultimate power to break the enemies.
“יְמִינְךָ יְהוָה, נֶאְדָּרִי בַּכֹּחַ; יְמִינְךָ יְהוָה, תִּרְעַץ אוֹיֵב.”
“Your right hand, YHVH, glorious in power, Your right hand, YHVH, shattered the enemy”
“נָטִיתָ, יְמִינְךָ–תִּבְלָעֵמוֹ, אָרֶץ”
“You stretched out your right hand–the earth swallowed it.”
The power of the right includes the removal of death from the world. The verse above is from the Song of the Sea that Moses and the Israelites sang after the miracle of splitting the water and crossing the Sea of Reeds. The song includes a view of the Final Redemption when the Right of God will swallow death forever.
In Isaiah 25:8 we read that again and that is why the Kabbalists see the initials of the first three words of the verse, נית, as a code for removal of death and immortality.
“בִּלַּע הַמָּוֶת לָנֶצַח, וּמָחָה אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה דִּמְעָה מֵעַל כָּל-פָּנִים; וְחֶרְפַּת עַמּוֹ, יָסִיר מֵעַל כָּל-הָאָרֶץ–כִּי יְהוָה, דִּבֵּר”
“He will swallow up death forever, And YHVH GOD will wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; For YHVH has spoken.”
We, the Israelites are the Right of God and there is no power in the world that can destroy us. No matter how powerful is our enemy, God is always with us and we will prevail.
