King David dedicated his life to bring together Malchut and ‘Justice’, Zeir Anpin that is the center column. King Solomon unified them and the moon, that is an aspect of Malchut became full of light and peace for an extended period until King Tzidkiyahu fell under the control of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon and broke the unification of Malchut and Zeir Anpin, causing the destruction of the first Holy Temple.
Tzidkiyahu had the aspect of “But a man who takes bribes destroy it” as described in Proverbs 29:4 (#88 above).
OIL AND WINE
Oil is an aspect of Right, for priests. Wine is an aspect of Left, for the Levites. Not because they need to drink wine, but as Left, the Levites are attracted to the side of the wine.
The abundance of Chokmah from the left of Binah, connect everything and nourish all the worlds when the Right and Left are unified. It creates the aspect of love and joy for all the worlds because all levels become complete with the unification of the Right and the Left and the flow of light from Chokmah.
“כַּשֶּׁמֶן הַטּוֹב עַל הָרֹאשׁ יֹרֵד עַל הַזָּקָן זְקַן אַהֲרֹן שֶׁיֹּרֵד עַל פִּי מִדּוֹתָיו”
“It is like the precious oil upon the head, Coming down upon the beard, Even Aaron’s beard, Coming down upon the edge of his robes.”
Oil is from the Right of Chokmah and for that reason, priests and kings are anointed with oil poured on their heads.
Oil, ‘שמן’ has the numerical value of 390 that is ten times יוד-הא-ואו (equal 39) that represents the ‘dew’ ‘טל’ of the Tree of Life that will resurrect the dead in the Final Redemption process.
Oil in this world improves brain and memory functions. Those who suffer from such issues I would recommend connecting to the wisdom/Chokmah of the Torah/Zohar and have a diet based on oil/fat Pure olive oil and MCT oils are great food items in the morning. (Please research and consult with professional about your diet.)
