Hebrew translation:

98. וְאָמַר שִׁבְעָה הֲבָלִים. וּמַה שֶּׁהוּא רָאָה לֹא רָאָה אָדָם אַחֵר, וּכְשֶׁכִּנֵּס חָכְמָה וְהִתְעַלָּה לְדַרְגוֹת הַחָכְמָה, נִקְרָא קֹהֶלֶת. וְשִׁבְעָה הֲבָלִים אָמַר, כְּנֶגֶד שִׁבְעָה כְתָרִים שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה, וְכָל הֶבֶל נַעֲשָׂה מִמֶּנּוּ קוֹל, וְהָעוֹלָם אֵינוֹ מִתְקַיֵּם אֶלָּא בְּהֶבֶל.
99. וְלָמַדְנוּ מִשְּׁמוֹ שֶׁל רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, הַהֶבֶל מוֹצִיא קוֹל בְּרוּחַ וּמַיִם שֶׁבּוֹ, וְאֵין קוֹל אֶלָּא עִם הֶבֶל. וְלָמַדְנוּ, בְּשִׁבְעָה הֲבָלִים מִתְקַיְּמִים הָעֶלְיוֹנִים וְהַתַּחְתּוֹנִים. וְלָמַד רַבִּי יִצְחָק, בֹּא תִרְאֶה שֶׁעַל הַהֶבֶל מִתְקַיֵּם הָעוֹלָם, שֶׁאִלְמָלֵא לֹא הָיָה הֶבֶל שֶׁיּוֹצֵא מִן הַפֶּה, לֹא הִתְקַיֵּם אָדָם אֲפִלּוּ שָׁעָה אַחַת.
100. כְּמוֹ כֵן אָמַר שְׁלֹמֹה דְּבָרָיו, שֶׁהָעוֹלָם מִתְקַיֵּם בָּהֶם, שֶׁבַּהֶבֶל הַזֶּה מִתְקַיֵּם הָעוֹלָם. וְהַהֶבֶל הַזֶּה שֶׁמִּתְקַיֵּם בּוֹ הָעוֹלָם, בָּא מִן הַהֲבָלִים שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב הֲבֵל הֲבָלִים, הֶבֶל מֵהַהֲבָלִים שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה, וְכָל דְּבָרָיו הָיוּ כָּךְ. וּבַהֲבָלִים שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה כָּתוּב, (דברים ח) כִּי עַל כָּל מוֹצָא פִּי ה’ יִחְיֶה הָאָדָם. מַה זֶּה מוֹצָא פִּי ה’? זֶה הַהֲבָלִים שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה.


Zohar Tazria

Ecclesiastes 1:2
“הֲבֵל הֲבָלִים אָמַר קֹהֶלֶת הֲבֵל הֲבָלִים הַכֹּל הָבֶל.”
“Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”
The common English translation for the word ‘הבל’ is ‘Vanity’. The literal meaning of ‘הבל’ is ‘Vapor’ like the vapor that comes out of the mouth when we speak. This word is used to refer to things of insignificance. For that reason, Bible translations use synonyms to ‘Vanity’.
The verse refers to seven ‘Vapors’ ‘Vanities’. The verse has three times ‘Vanity’ and two times ‘Vanities’. The plural word is counted as two and together we have seven. When King Solomon gathered the wisdom, he saw things that no other person could see. That elevated him to the level of Wisdom (Chokmah) and he was called Kohelet (Ecclesiastes).
The seven ‘vapors’ correspond to the seven sefirot above and a sound is created from each ‘vapor’. Without it, the world cannot exist.

We learned from Rabbi Shimon that the vapor is from the Left line that brings out the voice with air and water in it. The voice comes out with seven vapors that represent the seven sefirot of Israel Sava and Tevuna. These vapors sustain the unification of Zeir Anpin and Malchut. Without the vapor that comes out of the mouth, a person couldn’t live even for one hour.

Deuteronomy 8:3
“…כִּי עַל כָּל מוֹצָא פִי יְהוָה יִחְיֶה הָאָדָם”
“…man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of YHVH.”
The vapor that keeps the world in existence comes from the vapors above as King Solomon wrote, “Vanity (Vapor) of Vanities (Vapors)”.
‘every word that comes from the mouth of YHVH’ refers to the seven sefirot of Israel Sava and Tevuna that bring down the energy that is called ‘vapor’ to the lower worlds.


The world was created by God (ELHYM) that represents the Left, Gevurah. God used ten sayings of “and God said, Let there be…” to create the worlds. The force of God’s words is eternal and they keep the worlds in existence. We create our world with our words.
