Daily Zohar # 2528 – Ki Tetze – Ox and Donkey in the pit, until…
Zohar Ki Tetze
When the great abyss is perforated anyone that falls through the puncture can not come up. Mashiach ben David fell inside together with Mashiach ben Yosef.
“וְכִי יִפְתַּח אִישׁ בּוֹר אוֹ כִּי יִכְרֶה אִישׁ בֹּר וְלֹא יְכַסֶּנּוּ וְנָפַל שָׁמָּה שּׁוֹר אוֹ חֲמוֹר.”
“If a man opens a pit, or digs a pit and does not cover it over, and an ox or a donkey falls into it,”
The Ox is the aspect of Mashiach ben Yosef (Joseph). We learn that from the blessings of Jacob to Joseph.
“בְּכוֹר שׁוֹרוֹ הָדָר לוֹ וְקַרְנֵי רְאֵם קַרְנָיו בָּהֶם עַמִּים יְנַגַּח יַחְדָּו אַפְסֵי אָרֶץ וְהֵם רִבְבוֹת אֶפְרַיִם וְהֵם אַלְפֵי מְנַשֶּׁה.”
“As the firstborn of his ox, majesty is his, And his horns are the horns of the wild ox; With them, he will push the peoples, All at once, to the ends of the earth. And those are the ten thousands of Ephraim, And those are the thousands of Manasseh.”
Mashiach ben David is described as “Humble and ride on a donkey”
“גִּילִי מְאֹד בַּת צִיּוֹן הָרִיעִי בַּת יְרוּשָׁלִַם הִנֵּה מַלְכֵּךְ יָבוֹא לָךְ צַדִּיק וְנוֹשָׁע הוּא עָנִי וְרֹכֵב עַל חֲמוֹר וְעַל עַיִר בֶּן אֲתֹנוֹת”
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Mashiach is called the son of the fallen because King David was supposed to die three hours after his birth. A state that is called in Hebrew נפל, ‘fallen’. Adam promised 70 years of his life to David, because Adam sin, the gift of 70 years from his life to King David was canceled. Adam reincarnated in the patriarchs to restore the gift of life to King David. Abraham gave 5 years, Isaac gave nothing because he was left column and the aspect of judgments like king David. Jacob gave 28 years and Joseph gave 37 years. The three together add to 70 that went to King David. See Zohar Vayishlach paragraph #52-57.<https://unityzohar.com/zohar-books/vayishlach/51>
‘The Shechina fell with them until the day, YHVH will fulfill his promise as it is written in Amos 9:11
“בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא אָקִים אֶת סֻכַּת דָּוִיד הַנֹּפֶלֶת וְגָדַרְתִּי אֶת פִּרְצֵיהֶן וַהֲרִסֹתָיו אָקִים וּבְנִיתִיהָ כִּימֵי עוֹלָם”
“In that day I will raise up the fallen booth of David, And wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins And rebuild it as in the days of old;”
The Faithful Shepherd, Moses, is the ‘owner of the pit’ (Exodus 21:34) and will compensate for the ‘damage’ meaning he will make good of the fall.
The four exiles of the Israelites are aspects of Klipot from Genesis 1:2. The first three are according to the three layers of the walnut shell.
The first is for the green layer of the shell. ‘וְהָאָרֶץ, הָיְתָה תֹהוּ’ ‘The earth was formless’, is the aspect of the Babylonian exile.
Second Klipa is the aspect of stones that bring out water. ‘וָבֹהוּ’,’ and void’ is the aspect of the Persian exile.
Third Klipah – ‘וְחֹשֶׁךְ’, ‘and darkness’ is the aspect of the Greek exile.
The fourth Klipa is for the space inside the nut. ‘עַל-פְּנֵי תְהוֹם’, ‘over the surface of the deep’ is the aspect of the exile of Edom (Rome)
“וְרוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, מְרַחֶפֶת עַל-פְּנֵי הַמָּיִם”, ‘and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters’ is the aspect of the spirit of Mashiach.
