Daily Zohar # 3544 – Vaera – A convert from justice
95. מִשּׁוּם כָּךְ, יְהוּדָה שֶׁהוּא מִצַּד שְׂמֹאל, נִדְבָּק בַּיָּמִין, וּמַסָּעוֹתָיו לְיָמִין, וְאוֹתָם שֶׁעִמּוֹ הִתְחַבְּרוּ כֻּלָּם לְיָמִין. יִשָּׂשכָר שֶׁעוֹסֵק בַּתּוֹרָה שֶׁהוּא יָמִין, שֶׁכָּתוּב מִימִינוֹ אֵשׁ דָּת לָמוֹ. זְבוּלוּן שֶׁהוּא תּוֹמֵךְ הַתּוֹרָה יָמִין, כַּנֶּאֱמַר שׁוֹק הַיָּמִין. וְלָכֵן יְהוּדָה נִקְשָׁר מִצַּד זֶה וָזֶה. צָפוֹן בְּמַיִם, שְׂמֹאל בְּיָמִין.
96. רְאוּבֵן שֶׁחָטָא לְאָבִיו שָׁרָה בַּיָּמִין, וְהִתְקַשֵּׁר בַּשְּׂמֹאל, וְנִדְבַּק בּוֹ. וְלָכֵן אוֹתָם שֶׁנִּמְצְאוּ עִמּוֹ הֵם שְׂמֹאל. שִׁמְעוֹן שֶׁהוּא שְׂמֹאל מִצַּד שֶׁל שׁוֹר, שֶׁכָּתוּב וּפְנֵי שׁוֹר מֵהַשְּׂמֹאל. גָּד שׁוֹק שְׂמֹאל, כָּתוּב (בראשית מט) גָּד גְּדוּד יְגוּדֶנּוּ וְהוּא יָגֻד עָקֵב. כָּאן נִדְבַּק דָּרוֹם בְּאֵשׁ, יָמִין בִּשְׂמֹאל.
Continued from previous DZ
The secret is that the Holy One Blessed be He judges Israel from the Left side, to push them away from the Left and bring them back with the Right.
For the other nations, he rejects them with the Right and brings them closer to the Left.
When a person comes closer to the holiness and convert, he is called ‘גר צדק’,’ convert from justice’. ‘Justice’ is the name of Malchut from its Left side.
“יְמִינְךָ יְהוָה נֶאְדָּרִי בַּכֹּחַ יְמִינְךָ יְהוָה תִּרְעַץ אוֹיֵב.”
“Your right hand, O YHVH, has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O YHVH, has dashed the enemy in pieces.”
Israel comes from the middle line. When they sin, they increase the force of the Left over the Right, and the Left ‘punishes’ them. When they repent, the Holy One Blessed be He, brings them closer with the Right that is Chessed, and they return to the middle line.
The roots of the other nations are from the Left. When they come closer to the holy side and convert, they heal their root on the Left and they are called ‘גר צדק’,’ convert from justice’, where ‘justice’ is the name of the Shechina when the Left side comes to support her.
The tribe of Yehuda that came from the Left connected to the Right to increase their power and ability to overcome the other nations. During the journeys of the children of Israel in the wilderness, the camp of Yehuda was on the Right Side of the Holy Tabernacle together with the tribe of Issachar, who was a Torah scholar. Zevulun was also on the Right. He was a merchant that supported the Torah that is on the Right. The right side of the camps of Israel was on the east, and Yehuda connected the north that is Left with water that is Right
Reuben, as a firstborn, was on the Right. After he sinned to his father, he cleaved to the Left. Those who were with Reuben on the Left, Gevurah, are Shimon and Gad. They represent the face of Ox on the Left of the Holy Chariot.
“גָּד גְּדוּד יְגוּדֶנּוּ וְהוּא יָגֻד עָקֵב.”
“Gad will be attacked by raiders, but he will attack their heels.”
Gad has the aspect of the Left leg, Hod. The word ‘Attacked’ from the verse is the aspect of Left, and the heel is the leg where the south that is Right is tied with fire that is Left.
