Psalms 130:2 “Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive To the voice of my pleas for mercy.”
“אִם-עֲוֹנוֹת תִּשְׁמָר-יָהּ– אֲדֹנָי, מִי יַעֲמֹד”
“If YH–(יָהּ) kept a record of our sins, O Lord (ADNY אֲדֹנָי), who (מִי ) could ever stand?”
In Psalms 130 King David prays to God and humbles himself and pleads for mercy before the ‘judge’. The Zohar reveals that King David mentioned three levels of mercy.
‘YH’ יָהּ – The upper sefirot of Chochmah, Father and Binah, Mother. If there are too many sins they reach the level of Father and Mother. The the next level ‘ADNY’ אֲדֹנָי that is also mercy, awakens with judgment. It will block the other levels with judgments. Only the level of ‘MY’ מִי (‘who’), which is Binah, can ‘stand’ for the person and bring remedy and mercy.
“מָה-אֲעִידֵךְ מָה אֲדַמֶּה-לָּךְ, הַבַּת יְרוּשָׁלִַם–מָה אַשְׁוֶה-לָּךְ וַאֲנַחֲמֵךְ, בְּתוּלַת בַּת-צִיּוֹן: כִּי-גָדוֹל כַּיָּם שִׁבְרֵךְ, מִי יִרְפָּא-לָךְ”
“How shall I admonish you? To what shall I compare you, O daughter of Jerusalem (Malchut)? To what shall I liken you as I comfort you, O virgin daughter of Zion (Malchut of Yessod of Zeir Anpin)? For your ruin is as vast as the sea; Who can heal you?”
‘מי’ is numerically 50 and represents Binah. ‘Who’ מי, is a word that begins a question but at the same time reveals the answer because the energy of the entire existence comes to the world from Binah. It’s the life force that comes with Torah on Shabbat and through the study of the Zohar.
The Zohar helps us know ‘Who’ can heal us.
