67. וַיָּקָם מֶלֶךְ חָדָשׁ. רַבִּי אַבָּא פָּתַח, (ישעיה לב) אַשְׁרֵיכֶם זֹרְעֵי עַל כָּל מָיִם מְשַׁלְּחֵי רֶגֶל הַשּׁוֹר וְהַחֲמוֹר. אַשְׁרֵיהֶם יִשְׂרָאֵל שֶׁהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא הִתְרַצָּה בָהֶם מִכָּל שְׁאָר הָעַמִּים וְקֵרַב אוֹתָם אֵלָיו, שֶׁכָּתוּב (דברים יד) וּבְךָ בָּחַר ה’ לִהְיוֹת לוֹ לְעַם סְגֻלָּה וְגוֹ’, וְכָתוּב כִּי חֵלֶק ה’ עַמּוֹ יַעֲקֹב חֶבֶל נַחֲלָתוֹ. יִשְׂרָאֵל נִדְבָּקִים בַּקָּדוֹשׁ- בָּרוּךְ- הוּא, שֶׁכָּתוּב וְאַתֶּם הַדְּבֵקִים בַּה’ אֱלֹהֵיכֶם חַיִּים כֻּלְּכֶם הַיּוֹם.
68. וְלָכֵן זַכָּאִים הֵם לְפָנָיו, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהֵם זוֹרְעִים עַל כָּל מַיִם. מַה זֶּה עַל כָּל מָיִם? שֶׁזּוֹרְעִים לִצְדָקָה, וּמִי שֶׁזּוֹרֵעַ לִצְדָקָה, כָּתוּב בּוֹ (תהלים נז) [זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב כִּי גָדֹל עַד שָׁמַיִם. עַל כָּל מָיִם, זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב] ((שם קח) כִּי גָדוֹל מֵעַל שָׁמַיִם חַסְדֶּךָ. מֵעַל שָׁמַיִם, עַל כָּל מַיִם הוּא הָיָה, וּמִי הוּא מֵעַל שָׁמַיִם? זֶה עוֹלָם הַבָּא, וְיִשְׂרָאֵל זוֹרְעִים עַל כָּל מַיִם.


Zohar Shemot

Exodus 1:8
“וַיָּקָם מֶלֶךְ חָדָשׁ עַל מִצְרָיִם אֲשֶׁר לֹא יָדַע אֶת יוֹסֵף.”
“Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.”
This verse opens the story about the hardship that the Israelites will go through in Egypt until Moses leads them out to freedom.

Rabbi Aba opens the study and quotes the following verses, saying that the Israelites are blessed because the Holy One Blessed be He chose them from all the nations of the world and brought them closer to him.
Deuteronomy 14:2
“כִּי עַם קָדוֹשׁ אַתָּה לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ וּבְךָ בָּחַר יְהוָה לִהְיוֹת לוֹ לְעַם סְגֻלָּה מִכֹּל הָעַמִּים אֲשֶׁר עַל פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה.”
“”For you are a holy people to YHVH your God, and YHVH has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the people who are on the face of the earth.”

Isaiah 32:20
“אַשְׁרֵיכֶם זֹרְעֵי עַל כָּל מָיִם מְשַׁלְּחֵי רֶגֶל הַשּׁוֹר וְהַחֲמוֹר.”
“How blessed will you be, you who sow beside all waters, Who let out freely the ox and the donkey.”

Deuteronomy 32:9
“כִּי חֵלֶק יְהוָה, עַמּוֹ: יַעֲקֹב, חֶבֶל נַחֲלָתוֹ.”
“For YHVH’s portion is His people; Jacob is the allotment of His inheritance.”

Deuteronomy 4:4
“וְאַתֶּם הַדְּבֵקִים בַּיהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם חַיִּים כֻּלְּכֶם הַיּוֹם.”
“But you who held fast to YHVH your God are alive today, every one of you.”

The Israelites are considered righteous before God because they can create ‘female waters’. It is the aspect of creating vessels and desires in this world to draw the Light from above (‘Male waters’) by studying the Torah. The actions that draw Light to Malchut are called seeds of Tzedaka צדקה. Without the ‘seeds’ Malchut is in the aspect of judgment, ‘Justice’, ‘צדק’, a word that is like Tzedaka but without the ה.
When we plant seeds of Tzedaka that are actions of creating ‘female waters’ (מים נוקבין), we draw the ה from Binah and attach it to Malchut ‘צדק’. Then Malchut can be called ‘צדקה’,’Tzedaka’, ‘Righteousness’.

Psalms 108:5
“כִּי גָדוֹל מֵעַל שָׁמַיִם חַסְדֶּךָ וְעַד שְׁחָקִים אֲמִתֶּךָ.”
“Because your kindness (Chassadim) is above the heavens, and your truth reaches deeper heavens.”

The ‘truth’ is the center column that leads us above Zeir Anpin, the seven layers of ‘Heavens’, ‘שָׁמַיִם’ to Binah, where we receive the Light to sustain Malchut.

‘Heavens’, ‘שָׁמַיִם’ is the aspect of Zeir Anpin and created from Binah by unifying fire ‘אש’ and water ‘מים’, the Right, Light and the Left, Darkness (Zohar Teruma from #701 on).

There are seven levels of ‘heavens’.
1. וִילוֹן – Curtain – (Vilon) – Malchut.
2. רָקִיעַ – Sky – (Rakia) – Yessod
3. שְׁחָקִים – Heaven – (Shechakim). Same root as ‘grind’.- Netzach and Hod.
4. זְבוּל – Dwelling (there is no literal translation but the closest meaning I used here comes from Genesis 30:20 and 1 Kings 8:13 ) – (Zevul)
5. מָעוֹן – Home – (Ma’on) – Gevurah
6. מָכוֹן – Institute – (Machon) – Chessed
7. עֲרָבוֹת – Plains – (Aravot) – Da’at (equal to Keter, Chokmah and Binah together)
(Please do not try to make sense of the translation of the names)

The first level of the seven ‘Vilon’ is the ‘visual’ sky. The rest are spiritual levels that separate us from the lower level of Malchut to the level of Binah and Da’at.
The tool that can break through the layers of heavens is our prayers and the sacred words of the Torah and Zohar. They create female waters that draw the male waters from above and nourish us in this world.
