Daily Zohar # 2315 – Miketz – Released by the King, set free by the angel
“שָׁלַח מֶלֶךְ, וַיַתִּירֵהוּ; מֹשֵׁל עַמִּים, וַיְפַתְּחֵהוּ”
“A king was sent and released him, The ruler of peoples, was set him free.”
Rabbi Shimon asks to why there is duplication of the aspect of Joseph’s release from, prison. He explains that the first ‘king’ is Zeir Anpin that gives the command to release Joseph, and the second, ‘ruler of people’ is the angel in the world of Malchut that makes things happen and actually sets him free.
“וַיִּשְׁלַח פַּרְעֹה וַיִּקְרָא אֶת-יוֹסֵף, וַיְרִיצֻהוּ מִן-הַבּוֹר”
“Then Pharaoh sent and called for Joseph, and they hurriedly brought him out of the dungeon;”
The word for “they hurriedly” “וַיְרִיצֻהוּ ” is written in the Torah without ו Vav after the צ and that makes the word a singular form as ‘He hurriedly’. Like the explanation above, this form indicates that YHVH controlled the process of releasing Joseph and bringing him to Pharaoh with honor.
