Daily Zohar # 2288 – Chaye Sarah – Six and Seven
43. אָמַר רַבִּי יִצְחָק, מֵאוֹתוֹ עָפָר מַמָּשׁ שֶׁנִּבְרָא אָדָם הָרִאשׁוֹן, לָקַח הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לִבְרֹא אֶת שֵׁשֶׁת אֵלֶּה, וְקָרָא לוֹ שֵׁת שֵׁשׁ. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב וַיּוֹלֶד בִּדְמוּתוֹ כְּצַלְמוֹ, מֵאוֹתָהּ הָעִסָּה שֶׁנִּבְרָא הַגֹּלֶם שֶׁלּוֹ. וְעַל כָּךְ נֶאֱמַר גָּלְמִי רָאוּ עֵינֶיךָ, וְעִיַּנְתָּ בּוֹ לַעֲשׂוֹת [בּוֹ] שֶׁדּוֹמִים לוֹ. וְעַל סִפְרְךָ כֻּלָּם יִכָּתֵבוּ, מִי הֵם? כֻּלָּם שֶׁלֹּא שָׁמְרוּ מַה שֶּׁנָּתַן הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לָהֶם וְנִטְרְדוּ מִן הָעוֹלָם [וְנִדּוֹנוּ בְּאוֹתוֹ הַדִּין].
Zohar Chaye Sarah
Continued from previous DZ
“וַיּוֹלֶד בִּדְמוּתוֹ, כְּצַלְמוֹ; וַיִּקְרָא אֶת-שְׁמוֹ, שֵׁת”
“he delivered in his own form and image, and named him Seth.”
The name Seth also means six. The verse says “delivered in his own image”, not delivered a son in his own image. The Zohar reveals that before God put the soul into Adam, he ordered the angel that is appointed on the forms of people, to form six other people in the same form. They were Samson שמשון, King Saul שאול, Asahel עשהאל – nephew of King David, Josiah יאשיהו – King of Judah, Tzidkiyahu צדקיהו – last king of Judah, Absalom אבשלום – son of Solomon.
The Zohar says that God created these six ‘images’ from the same source Adam was created.
The six didn’t follow their life’s purpose and they died with judgment before their time.
Adam was like the aspect of Shabbat that included in it the six days of the week, which is the process of work, creating the vessel for the Light of Shabbat.
The cycle of seven is very important, critical in the process of Creation. We work six days to receive the Light of Shabbat and we work for 6000 years to earn the Light of Mashiach. The correction of our soul is the correction of Adam. When we purify and complete the soul of Adam, we will have the Final Redemption and the concealed Light will shine again in the world.
