Daily Zohar # 2721 – Emor – The mercy of the seventh
“צִדְקָתְךָ כְּהַרְרֵי אֵל מִשְׁפָּטֶךָ תְּהוֹם רַבָּה אָדָם וּבְהֵמָה תוֹשִׁיעַ יְהוָה.”
“Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your justice is like a great deep. O, YHVH, You salvation for man and beast.”
‘Your righteousness’ is Malchut and ‘the mountains of God’ is Binah. ‘Your justice’ is the aspect of Zeir Anpin that brings down the light from Binah to Malchut with ‘’great deep’ that is mercy.
Binah is on the Left column that represents judgment and when the light of Binah comes down through the Central column, Zeir Anpin, it becomes balanced and bring mercy to the world.
‘You salvation for man and beast.’- The mercy that is drawn down from Binah connects to man and beast on their levels. בהמה ‘beast’ is numerically 52 as the YHVH name for Malchut יוד-הה-וו-הה.
“וּבֶן-שְׁמֹנַת יָמִים, יִמּוֹל לָכֶם כָּל-זָכָר–לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם”
“”And every male among you who is eight days old shall be circumcised throughout your generations”
“שׁוֹר אוֹ-כֶשֶׂב אוֹ-עֵז כִּי יִוָּלֵד, וְהָיָה שִׁבְעַת יָמִים תַּחַת אִמּוֹ; וּמִיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי, וָהָלְאָה, יֵרָצֶה, לְקָרְבַּן אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה”
“When an ox or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall remain seven days with its mother, and from the eighth day on it shall be accepted as a sacrifice of an offering by fire to YHVH.”
Man and beast need to live at least pass one Shabbat, the seventh day, that is a connection to Binah before they can elevate spiritually.
When we are properly connected to Shabbat and Binah we draw the light of Mercy.
