121. וְזֹאת תּוֹרַת הָאָשָׁם וְזֹאת תּוֹרַת הַמִּנְחָה וְזֹאת תּוֹרַת זֶבַח הַשְּׁלָמִים זֹאת תּוֹרַת הַחַטָּאת. רַבִּי יִצְחָק אָמַר, הֲרֵי פֵּרְשׁוּהָ, אִם לְמַטָּה – זוֹ בַּכֹּל, וְאִם לְמַעְלָה – זוֹ בַּכֹּל. וּמִי שֶׁמִּשְׁתַּדֵּל בַּתּוֹרָה, נוֹטֵל אוֹתָהּ לְחֶלְקוֹ בַּכֹּל וְנֶאֱחָז בְּכָל הַצְּדָדִים, וְלֹא צָרִיךְ לְהַקְרִיב קָרְבָּן עַל נַפְשׁוֹ, וַהֲרֵי נִתְבָּאֵר.
“וְאֶת עֵשָׂו שָׂנֵאתִי וָאָשִׂים אֶת הָרָיו שְׁמָמָה וְאֶת נַחֲלָתוֹ לְתַנּוֹת מִדְבָּר.”
“But Esau I have hated, And laid waste his mountains and his heritage For the jackals of the wilderness.”
Rabbi Chiya says that the verse says that Esau is hated but we see him live comfortably, in large cities and control the world. He asks where the aspect of ‘laid waste his mountains.
Rabbi Yitzchak explains that anywhere the Holy King makes a decree, the written decree is a testimony that it would happen in the proper time. It is the same with the good that was promised for Israel. It will come true in the intended time as we read in Ezekiel 37:14
“וְנָתַתִּי רוּחִי בָכֶם וִחְיִיתֶם וְהִנַּחְתִּי אֶתְכֶם עַל אַדְמַתְכֶם וִידַעְתֶּם כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה דִּבַּרְתִּי וְעָשִׂיתִי נְאֻם יְהוָה.”
“I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, YHVH, have spoken it and performed it,” says YHVH’ ”
“וְזֹאת תּוֹרַת הָאָשָׁם קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים הוּא”
“This is the law of the guilt offering. It is most holy.”
The laws related to the different offerings start with the word ‘This’ ‘זאת’. This word represents Malchut that receives and includes all the lights from the levels above her and nourishes all lower levels.
One who studies the Torah makes Malchut זאת part of him and united with all her aspects that are burnt offering, grain, peace, sin, and the guilt offering. Because of that, he doesn’t have to bring offerings for himself.
The study of the Torah, especially through the Zohar that is the highest level of the Torah study, reveals great light that as the Zohar teaches us it is comparable to the offerings brought to the holy temple and cleanses the person from his negative deeds.
