Daily Zohar # 2463 – Korach – Every devoted thing
“כָּל-חֵרֶם בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל, לְךָ יִהְיֶה.”
“Every devoted thing in Israel shall be yours.”
The Hebrew word ‘חרם’ translated above as ‘devoted’ but in Hebrew it can be explained as ‘a ban’, ‘a swear’, ‘a disconnection’. ‘Allocation’ (of something). This is related to everything material a person rejects from his possession or ownership. If he has no longer desire to have/own anything that belongs to him then the Torah commands that it should be given to the priests. It could be a simple or big items animal, piece of land etc.
Anger can brings the negative side to be part of that item and it should be removed from the person’s possession. The priest is of the Right column and spread Chassadim (light of mercy, loving kindness) that can remove the negative energy from the item.
Other forms of the word חרם spell as רחם, which means ‘mercy’ and רמח that has the numerical value of 248 as the number of parts in body and soul.
