Daily Zohar # 2762 – Korach – The formation of tenths
“וּמִנְחָתָם–סֹלֶת, בְּלוּלָה בַשָּׁמֶן: שְׁלֹשָׁה עֶשְׂרֹנִים לַפָּר, וּשְׁנֵי עֶשְׂרֹנִים לָאַיִל–תַּעֲשׂוּ”
“For their grain offering, you shall offer fine flour mixed with oil: three-tenths of an ephah for a bull and two-tenths for the ram.”
‘two-tenths for the ram’ (Numbers 28:20). These two tenth are for the two letter י, Yods. They are represented in the offerings that the heads of the tribes brought to the Tabernacle (Numbers 7:86) “ten tenth in the Shekel of the sanctuary”. The Shekel determined the weight and represented the central column that balances the Yod of the Right and the Yod of the Left.
God created man with two Yods as it says in Genesis 2:7 “וַיִּיצֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים אֶת הָאָדָם עָפָר מִן הָאֲדָמָה” “Then YHVH God formed (וַיִּיצֶר) man of the dust of the ground”. The word for ‘formed’, ‘וַיִּיצֶר’ spelled with two יי Yods rather than the regular and correct form of one י Yod. The two yods implies that presence of lower and upper in Gods’ creation. We see the two names of God that represent the Right, YHVH and the Left, ELHYM, come together to ‘form’ man.
The letter Alef א that is the root of all letters, formed from two Yods and Vav in between.
Also the two Yods are the first and the last letters of the combined name of upper and lower names of God יאהדונהי.
Between the two Yods we have 6 letters for the central column that connects the upper and lower levels.
“אִם עַל-תּוֹדָה, יַקְרִיבֶנּוּ–וְהִקְרִיב עַל-זֶבַח הַתּוֹדָה חַלּוֹת מַצּוֹת בְּלוּלֹת בַּשֶּׁמֶן, וּרְקִיקֵי מַצּוֹת מְשֻׁחִים בַּשָּׁמֶן; וְסֹלֶת מֻרְבֶּכֶת, חַלֹּת בְּלוּלֹת בַּשָּׁמֶן.”
“If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers spread with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour soaked.”
‘Three-tenths’ as explained previously, are the three Yods in the name of Binah יוד-הי-ואו-הי. It relates to the precept of Thanksgiving offerings that is twenty tenths, divided to ten of Chametz and ten of Matzah. From the ten of Matzah they make 30 Matzahs and from the ten of Chametz they make ten challahs
From the ten tenths that is the ten letters of the name of Binah, we take the three Yods, numerically 30 for the 30 Matzahs.
The name of 63 comes from the supernal mother and can be present in the Right for Chessed, on the Left for Gevurah and in the central column for complete mercy because it joins left and right together.
