Daily Zohar # 2600 – Vayeshev – The servant have the keys
The last study of Vayeshev DZ 2312 from last year connects to this one and copied here for your convenience.
“הִנֵּה יַשְׂכִּיל, עַבְדִּי; יָרוּם וְנִשָּׂא וְגָבַהּ, מְאֹד”
“behold, My servant will prosper, He will be high and lifted up and greatly exalted.”
The Hebrew word for ‘servant’ is ‘עבד’, which means ‘worker’ and a ‘slave’. The aspect of ‘slave’ is by knowing the the Torah is truth to be followed. ‘Worker’ is the aspect of those who do the precepts and reveal the Light of the Creator in the world.
The Zohar reveals that the reward for those righteous people would be higher elevation to see the full revelation of the light in the world.
“וְהָיָה אוֹר הַלְּבָנָה כְּאוֹר הַחַמָּה וְאוֹר הַחַמָּה יִהְיֶה שִׁבְעָתַיִם כְּאוֹר שִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים בְּיוֹם חֲבֹשׁ יְהוָה אֶת שֶׁבֶר עַמּוֹ וּמַחַץ מַכָּתוֹ יִרְפָּא”
“Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when YHVH binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow”
‘My servant’ is Malchut that is able to connect to the upper levels. It’s like it said in Genesis 24:2
“וַיֹּאמֶר אַבְרָהָם, אֶל-עַבְדּוֹ זְקַן בֵּיתוֹ, הַמֹּשֵׁל, בְּכָל-אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ: שִׂים-נָא יָדְךָ, תַּחַת יְרֵכִי”
“Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his household, who had charge of all that he owned, “Please place your hand under my thigh”
The ‘servant’ is trusted with the ‘keys’ to his master’s house.
The archangel Metatron is the servant that has the keys to the upper and lower levels.
‘The oldest of his household’ is Metatron that is called ‘old’.
Psalms 37:25 “נַעַר, הָיִיתִי– גַּם-זָקַנְתִּי:”
“I have been young and now I am old”
His is called both ‘young’ and ‘old’ because he is between the upper three and the lower seven. He controls the three columns represented by the colors .
‘place your hand under my thigh’ is the aspect of Tzadik, which is Yessod. Tzadik is the foundation of the world and its source of sustenance. When holding to Yessod, the ‘servant’ is appointed to bring life to the dead with the Light from above. He connects the souls to their original bodies underground.
