52. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, כָּתוּב בְּדָוִד (שמואל-א טז) וְהוּא אַדְמוֹנִי עִם יְפֵה עֵינַיִם וְטוֹב רֹאִי. מָה הַטַּעַם אַדְמוֹנִי? מִשּׁוּם שֶׁחֵלֶק גּוֹרָלוֹ גָּרַם לוֹ. אַדְמוֹנִי, דִּין וַדַּאי. עִם יְפֵה עֵינַיִם, דִּין בְּרַחֲמִים, כְּמוֹ שֶׁכָּתוּב (ישעיה נה) חַסְדֵי דָוִד הַנֶּאֱמָנִים.
53. אָמַר רַבִּי יִצְחָק, חַסְדֵי דָוִד, בִּמְקוֹמוֹ בֵּאַרְנוּ. אֶלָּא וְהוּא אַדְמוֹנִי, כְּמוֹ שֶׁאָמַרְנוּ. עִם יְפֵה עֵינַיִם – אֵלּוּ הָאָבוֹת. בֹּא וּרְאֵה, יְרוּשָׁלַיִם וְצִיּוֹן – דִּין וְרַחֲמִים, וְאַף עַל פִּי כֵן כָּתוּב (מלכים-א ח) [מֵ]עִיר דָּוִד הִיא צִיּוֹן, וּכְתִיב (הושע יא) בְּקִרְבְּךָ קָדוֹשׁ וְלֹא אָבוֹא בְּעִיר. נִשְׁבַּע הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא שֶׁלֹּא יִכָּנֵס בִּירוּשָׁלַיִם שֶׁל מַעְלָה וְכוּ’. אֵימָתַי? אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, כְּשֶׁתַּחֲזֹר מַלְכוּת בֵּית דָּוִד לִמְקוֹמָהּ לְמַטָּה.

1 Samuel 16:12
“וַיִּשְׁלַח וַיְבִיאֵהוּ וְהוּא אַדְמוֹנִי, עִם-יְפֵה עֵינַיִם וְטוֹב רֹאִי”

The Zohar explains that King David had red hair because he was a chariot for Malchut that is judgment and is represented by the red color. His beautiful eyes represented the aspect of having mercy included in Judgment. The connection of King David to Chassadim (Mercy) is mentioned in Isaiah 55:3.
“הַטּוּ אָזְנְכֶם וּלְכוּ אֵלַי שִׁמְעוּ וּתְחִי נַפְשְׁכֶם וְאֶכְרְתָה לָכֶם בְּרִית עוֹלָם חַסְדֵי דָוִד הַנֶּאֱמָנִים.”

King David’s eyes also reflected the three patriarchs that bring the Light to Malchut.
Abraham – White –Chessed – Right
Isaac – Red (blood vessels) –Gevurah – Left
Jacob – Green –Tiferet – Center
The upper and lower eyelids are for Netzach (Upper) and Hod (Lower).
The eye ball itself is Yessod.
Pupil, the black in the middle of the eye, is Malchut.

Jerusalem and Zion are judgment and mercy. Jerusalem is in the Malchut level, which is judgment. Zion is Yessod of Malchut and connects the upper Jerusalem, that is on the spiritual level, to the lower Jerusalem in the material level. The Zohar reveals that YHVH promised to come to Zion, the upper Jerusalem, when the Israelites enter the lower Jerusalem. This will happen when the kingdom of David is restored with the coming of Mashiach. He will prepare the lower Jerusalem for the coming of YHVH to the upper Jerusalem, flooding the world with eternal Light of peace.

This is the aspect of the ‘Return to Zion’ or in another word ‘Zionism’. You are a ‘Zionist’ if you have in your heart the desire to see God revealing himself in Jerusalem, releasing the great Light to the world.
