106. אָמַר אוֹתוֹ תִּינוֹק, שְׁמֹר עַצְמְךָ וְהַצְלַח בְּכֵלֶיךָ. וְכִי שֶׁבַח זֶה בִּלְבַד לָקְחוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְלֹא אַחֵר? אָמַר, שֶׁבַח זֶה מָצָאנוּ, וְלֹא אַחֵר. אָמַר אוֹתוֹ תִּינוֹק, כֵּיוָן שֶׁחַרְבְּךָ לֹא הִצְלִיחָה, אוֹ שֶׁאֵינְךָ מְנַעְנְעָהּ כָּרָאוּי, הַשְׁאֵר הַחֶרֶב לְמִי שֶׁעוֹרֵךְ קְרָב.
Continued from previous DZ
‘Bless YHVH, you His angels….who perform His word’. The angels were acting upon the commands of God. After the children of Israel received the Torah saying “we will do and obey”, the ‘action’ part was taken from the angels. Now the angels listen to the words of God and the Israelites perform the actions.
Malchut is the most important world because it’s the purpose of Creation. To experience and have the desire for the Light, Malchut was elevated to Binah during the Creation process. For that reason, Binah and Malchut represented by the same letter ה H in the YHVH name. It indicates that Malchut have vessels for the light of Binah.
Malchut is the world of Action, ‘Asiah’, and represents the words of God (דבר השם). Binah is called ‘hearing’ and on a human face it is the aspect of the ears. Binah ‘listens’ to the words of God and deliver it to Malchut for actions. Malchut ‘listens’ to Binah and act upon it.
‘Mighty in strength’ is the angels and now ‘who perform His word’ is the children of Israel that follow the correction process of the world by drawing the Light of Binah to Malchut.
The Yenuka challenges Rabbi Elazar for his answer, telling him that his ‘sword’ wasn’t properly raised to win. He was hinting that there is more to explain beyond listening and acting, Malchut and Binah.
