The child opened;
“וַיִּבְרָא אֱלֹהִים אֶת הַתַּנִּינִם הַגְּדֹלִים וְאֵת כָּל נֶפֶשׁ הַחַיָּה הָרֹמֶשֶׂת אֲשֶׁר שָׁרְצוּ הַמַּיִם לְמִינֵהֶם וְאֵת כָּל עוֹף כָּנָף לְמִינֵהוּ וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים כִּי טוֹב.”
“God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good.”
‘And God (ELHYM אֱלֹהִים) Created’. ‘ELHYM אֱלֹהִים’ is the force of Creation comes from Binah. Even though Binah is the aspect of Mercy, it brings out judgments because the name ELHYM represents aspect of Left and judgments.
‘the great sea monsters’ is the aspect of the patriarchs, representing Chessed, Gevurah and Tiferet, the three columns. They are the first to receive from Binah and continue the nourishments they receive to the lower levels
‘and every living creature’ is the soul level of Nefesh of Adam that came from Binah.
‘that moves’ is Binah that bestows its light on Zeir Anpin to provide nourishments for all.
