65. אַל תִּפְנוּ אֶל הָאֱלִילִים וֵאלֹהֵי מַסֵּכָה לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ לָכֶם. רַבִּי חִיָּיא פָּתַח, (דברים ט) אַל תֵּפֶן אֶל קְשִׁי הָעָם הַזֶּה וְגוֹ’. אַל תֵּפֶן, וְכִי מִי שֶׁיֹּאמַר לַמֶּלֶךְ אַל תֵּפֶן? וַהֲרֵי כָּתוּב (איוב לד) כִּי עֵינָיו עַל דַּרְכֵי אִישׁ. וְכָתוּב (ירמיה כד) אִם יִסָּתֵר אִישׁ בְּמִסְתָּרִים וַאֲנִי לֹא אֶרְאֶנּוּ נְאֻם ה’, וַהֲרֵי בַּכֹּל מַשְׁגִּיחַ הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא וּמִסְתַּכֵּל עַל כָּל הַמַּעֲשִׂים, וּמַכְנִיס בְּדִין עַל כֻּלָּם, אִם טוֹב וְאִם רָע, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (קהלת יב) הָאֱלֹהִים יָבִא בְמִשְׁפָּט עַל כָּל נֶעְלָם אִם טוֹב וְאִם רָע, וּמֹשֶׁה אוֹמֵר אַל תֵּפֶן?!
“וַיִּתְהַלֵּךְ חֲנוֹךְ אֶת הָאֱלֹהִים וְאֵינֶנּוּ כִּי לָקַח אֹתוֹ אֱלֹהִים”
“Enoch walked with God; and he was gone, for God took him.”
Enoch was righteous, and for his purity, God took him to be with him before he sins. Enoch knew how to separate himself from the Klipot of this world and concealed the judgment in Malchut. He became the angel Metat- that knows all the secrets of heaven and earth. He connects the ‘border’ between the upper three and lower seven sefirot. Also, the gate that connects Yessod and Malchut. After he made this correction in Malchut, the souls could have levels of Ruach and Neshama in the body in Malchut.
As we learned previously about the three partners needed to create life in this world is the mortal body below, and the soul the comes in with the unification of Zeir Anpin and Malchut, male and female.
“אַל תִּפְנוּ אֶל הָאֱלִילִים וֵאלֹהֵי מַסֵּכָה לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ לָכֶם אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם. ”
“’Do not turn to idols or make for yourselves molten gods; I am YHVH your God.”
“זְכֹר לַעֲבָדֶיךָ לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיַעֲקֹב אַל תֵּפֶן אֶל קְשִׁי הָעָם הַזֶּה וְאֶל רִשְׁעוֹ וְאֶל חַטָּאתוֹ. ”
“’Remember Your servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; do not look at the stubbornness of this people or their wickedness or their sin.”
Moses asked God to ignore the sins and wickedness of the people. The Zohar asks how it is possible to ‘not look’ when God sees everything and everywhere because he fills the entire existence.
“אִם יִסָּתֵר אִישׁ בַּמִּסְתָּרִים וַאֲנִי לֹא אֶרְאֶנּוּ נְאֻם יְהוָה הֲלוֹא אֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת הָאָרֶץ אֲנִי מָלֵא נְאֻם יְהוָה. ”
“Can a man hide himself in hiding places, So I do not see him?” declares YHVH. “Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?” declares YHVH.”
“כִּי עֵינָיו עַל דַּרְכֵי אִישׁ וְכָל צְעָדָיו יִרְאֶה. ”
“For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, And He sees all his steps.”
Enoch was righteous, but his generation was all wicked. He was teaching people the ways of God, but God saw that he would be influenced by their wickedness and lose his light, so he took him up to serve as a bridge between the spiritual and the physical levels.

The Zohar reveals that because of his purity on this world, Enoch merited to see all the supernal secrets and the place of Adam in the Garden of Eden.
We should learn from that to stay away from negative influences that may drain our energy and great light that we revealed/Accumulated merits for a long time.
The lesson for this would be in the next DZ as it connects to the following paragraphs.
