The Zohar praises the Tzadikim that the Holy One Blessed Be He, honor them and never leaves them.
Jacob fought the angel of the negative side and as the light of the day was coming closer, Jacob had stronger control over the angel. The angel asked Jacob to release him because he knew that he would be disabled during daylight.
“וַיֹּאמֶר שַׁלְּחֵנִי, כִּי עָלָה הַשָּׁחַר; וַיֹּאמֶר לֹא אֲשַׁלֵּחֲךָ, כִּי אִם-בֵּרַכְתָּנִי”
“Then he said, “Let me go, for the day has broken.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.””
“וַיִּקָּחֵם וַיַּעֲבִרֵם אֶת הַנָּחַל וַיַּעֲבֵר אֶת אֲשֶׁר לוֹ”
Jacob made camps for the night and after he saw the angel of the negative side as flames of fire flying inside his camps. He immediately moved his family across the river, knowing that the angels of the other side don’t cross rivers. Jacob left all of his properties behind but after his family was safe he went back to retrieve a small can of oil. He didn’t care about all of his riches but this oil was special. The sages revealed that it was the pure can of oil that the Maccabees found after they pushed the Greek empire out of the Holy Land and went to restore the work of the priests in the Holy Temple.
Jacob was on a holy mission but he was alone at night. The angel could hurt him at his heel because God allowed the ‘Snake’ to hurt man in his heel. The Zohar tells us that being alone at night is risky because the other side have control during the night hours. A person is also at risk if he is alone in an isolated house separated from neighbors.
The simple lesson is to be righteous to have God’s protection. Even then we should know that we are vulnerable at night time. We should not walk alone at night or sleep alone in an isolated house.
If we don’t have other options and in general, we should have the Zohar with us at all times.
