Daily Zohar # 1822 – Bechukotai – I shall grant you peace in the land.
Continued from previous DZ
“וְנָתַתִּי שָׁלוֹם בָּאָרֶץ, וּשְׁכַבְתֶּם וְאֵין מַחֲרִיד; וְהִשְׁבַּתִּי חַיָּה רָעָה, מִן-הָאָרֶץ, וְחֶרֶב, לֹא-תַעֲבֹר בְּאַרְצְכֶם.”
“I shall also grant peace in the land, so that you may lie down with no one making you tremble. I shall also eliminate harmful beasts from the land, and no sword will pass through your land.”
This is the promise that God gave us if we accept his advice and follow the laws of the Torah.
“רִגְזוּ, וְאַל-תֶּחֱטָאוּ: אִמְרוּ בִלְבַבְכֶם, עַל-מִשְׁכַּבְכֶם; וְדֹמּוּ סֶלָה.”
“Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah”
The Zohar tells us that it is a good thing to be angry with the evil inclination. When the night comes and forces of judgments spread in the world we should avoid all aspects of negativity so we won’t be exposed and affected by these forces.
