Daily Zohar # 2772 – Balak – Feed from a thousand mountains
Prev was DZ 2489 (77.78)
We continue the study of the Zohar article “The Yenuka” (the child).
Chaff and straw cover the pure wheat grain and they are the aspects of the male and female of the Klipah. For that reason, they are not required for tithe. The secret is in the word ‘חטה’ for ‘wheat’. The Zohar reveals that the purity of wheat represents the perfection of the Tree of Life. The sin of Adam was connected to wheat. These revelations were made by the Yenuka and the rabbis wondered about it. Rabbi Elazar accepted the child’s revelation and said; it probably happened as described.
The Yehuka continues to explain that it is certainly so because Barley was first in the world. It’s from the Left side, which is Chokmah without Chassadim that is revealed in Malchut. Malchut is called ‘בהמה’, ‘Animal’, numerically 52 as the numerical value of the YHVH name יוד-הה-וו-הה that represents Malchut. Barley is the secret of a ‘thousand mountains’ that is the nourishment in Malchut.
“כִּי לִי כָל חַיְתוֹ יָעַר בְּהֵמוֹת בְּהַרְרֵי אָלֶף”
“For every beast of the forest is Mine, The animal on a thousand mountains.”
(for Hebrew readers and those who compare translation; there’s a reason for why I translated the word בהמות as singular ‘animal’. The reason would be explained in a different study related to the ‘wild Ox’ שור הבר and the ‘Leviathan’)
Malchut is nourished from the thousand mountains that grow every night. This food is called ‘bread of giving (Terumah)’ and it is holy
This ‘enigmatic’ Zohar would get clearer as we continue with this study in the next few weeks.
