“לְדָוִד מִזְמוֹר לַיהוָה הָאָרֶץ וּמְלוֹאָהּ תֵּבֵל וְיֹשְׁבֵי בָהּ.”
“A Psalm of David. The earth (‘Eretz,’ אָרֶץ) is for YHVH, and all it contains the world (תֵּבֵל, ‘Tevel’), and those who dwell in it.”
The gives another explanation to this verse. ‘earth’ is Malchut and ‘all it contains’ is the souls of the Tzadikim in Malchut. ‘those who dwell in it’ are the humans living in it.
“כִּי הוּא עַל יַמִּים יְסָדָהּ וְעַל נְהָרוֹת יְכוֹנְנֶהָ”
“For He has founded it upon the seas And established it upon the rivers.”
The ‘earth’ of Life, Malchut established from the supernal river that comes out of the Garden of Eden, Binah. This river nourishes Malchut and all the worlds and supports the connection with the Holy King.
“מִי יַעֲלֶה בְהַר יְהוָה וּמִי יָקוּם בִּמְקוֹם קָדְשׁוֹ”
“נְקִי כַפַּיִם וּבַר לֵבָב אֲשֶׁר לֹא נָשָׂא לַשָּׁוְא נַפְשִׁי וְלֹא נִשְׁבַּע לְמִרְמָה”
“Who may ascend into the hill of YHVH? And who may stand in His holy place?”
“He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood And has not sworn deceitfully.”
These verses refer to King David in Malchut. He had the pure heart and soul to stand in the Holy Place.
This study takes us from ‘earth’ to the ‘river’ and to the Holy Place that is the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
We live in the highest level of the seven ‘earth.’ It is called “Tevel.” After the sin, Adam was sent out of the Garden of Eden into the level of ‘Eretz.’ This level was dark, and the ‘Flaming sword’ (Genesis 3:24) was there to guard the place. Adam was afraid, and after Shabbat that brought him to repentance, God elevated him to the level of ‘Adama’ (‘ground’) (Genesis 3:23). This level has light, stars, and constellations. Also, people that came out from the seed of Adam when he was with female entities of the other-side, during the 130 years he was away from Eve. It’s a sad place, and the people/entities from that level can come up to higher levels but turn into negative and hurt people.
The lower level of the seven, ‘Eretz’ has the aspects of Yessod and Malchut but under the control of judgments. Our level is the highest and has the aspect of Binah because we can connect to the Light of Binah. The other levels are under judgments. Our level is special because it’s the only one that has seven types of cereal grains. People on different levels have different looks. Some have short legs, small eyes and on one level they have beautiful people. Some can move between levels.
In the Tikun process, some souls may incarnate in one of these levels. Our level of Tevel can connect to the Holy and that is the aspect of “Who may ascend into the hill of YHVH? And who may stand in His holy place?” Psalms 24:3
