Daily Zohar # 3097 – Balak – ‘You’ are Right
158. אֲרוֹמִמְךָ, הַכֹּל כְּאֶחָד. אוֹדֶה שִׁמְךָ כָּרָאוּי, וְשֵׁם זֶה יָדוּעַ. כִּי עָשִׂיתָ פֶּלֶא, כִּסּוּי וּלְבוּשׁ לְהִתְלַבֵּשׁ אוֹר נִסְתָּר עַתִּיק, רֵאשִׁית הַדַּרְגָּה הָעֶלְיוֹנָה, אָדָם הָרִאשׁוֹן, טָמִיר בְּכִסּוּי שֶׁל אוֹר אַחֵר.
We continue the study of this verse started at paragraph #156 (DZ 3096)
“יְהוָה אֱלֹהַי אַתָּה אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אוֹדֶה שִׁמְךָ כִּי עָשִׂיתָ פֶּלֶא עֵצוֹת מֵרָחוֹק אֱמוּנָה אֹמֶן.”
“O YHVH, You are my God! I will exalt You; I will praise Your name. For You have worked wonders—plans formed long ago—in perfect faithfulness.”
We explained that the name ‘YHVH’ is Father and Mother from the concealed root. ‘My God’ is Israel Saba and Tevunah, that are the lower aspects of Chokmah and Binah. ‘You’, ‘אַתָּה’ is the Right, which is Chessed of Zeir Anpin. It is the beginning of the answer to the question but not yet revealed until its light arrives at Malchut.
Psalms 110: 4
“נִשְׁבַּע יְהוָה וְלֹא יִנָּחֵם אַתָּה כֹהֵן לְעוֹלָם עַל דִּבְרָתִי מַלְכִּי צֶדֶק.”
“YHVH has sworn and will not change His mind: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.””
‘You (אַתָּה) are a priest’ is the aspect of the priest that is on the Right and Chessed.
Chokmah that is on the Right above Chessed and included in the word ‘You’, ‘אַתָּה’ as well as Malchut that reveals all the upper lights.
‘I will exalt You’ with the three names ‘YHVH’ ‘יְהוָה’, ‘My God’ ‘אֱלֹהַי’ and ‘You’, ‘אַתָּה’. ‘I will praise Your name’ in Malchut where the Light is revealed. ‘For You have worked wonders’ from the concealed point of Keter to the light of Chokmah in Binah that is the beginning of the upper level that we can connect to.
The word ‘אַתָּה’ ‘You’ has the first letter א that is constructed from the letters י Yod, Vav ו and י Yod. The first Yod of it represents the beginning, Chokmah and the Vav of it represents Zeir Anpin with Chessed at its top. The letter ת of אתה is the last letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet and makes the connection from the beginning, which is concealed Keter and Chokmah to Malchut. The letter ה of אתה represent the ה of Malchut in the YHVH name.
