87. וְשָׁנִינוּ לִפְנֵי מוֹרֵנוּ, מַה זֶּה קֹדֶשׁ? שְׁלֵמוּת הַכֹּל שֶׁנִּקְרֵאת הַחָכְמָה הָעֶלְיוֹנָה. וּמֵהַמָּקוֹם הַזֶּה (שׁוֹפֵעַ שֶׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת קֹדֶשׁ בִּשְׁבִילִים יְדוּעִים לְמָקוֹם שֶׁנִּקְרָא בִּינָה עֶלְיוֹנָה), וּמִשָּׁם יוֹצְאִים מַעְיָנוֹת וּנְחָלִים לְכָל עֵבֶר, עַד שֶׁמַּגִּיעִים לְזֹאת הַזּוֹ. [וּמִמָּקוֹם זֶה מִתְעוֹרֶרֶת רוּחַ קְדוֹשָׁה] וּכְשֶׁמִּתְבָּרֶכֶת הַזֹּאת הַזּוֹ, נִקְרֵאת קֹדֶשׁ, וְנִקְרֵאת חָכְמָה, וְקוֹרְאִים לָהּ (וְהַזֹּאת הַזּוֹ כְּשֶׁמִּתְבָּרֶכֶת מִמָּקוֹם עֶלְיוֹן, זֶה שֶׁנִּקְרָא קֹדֶשׁ וְנִקְרָא חָכְמָה, קוֹרְאִים לוֹ) רוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ. כְּלוֹמַר, רוּחַ מֵאוֹתוֹ קֹדֶשׁ שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה. וּכְשֶׁיּוֹצְאִים וּמִתְעוֹרְרִים מִמֶּנָּה סוֹדוֹת הַתּוֹרָה, אָז נִקְרֵאת לְשׁוֹן הַקֹּדֶשׁ.
Zohar Achare Mot
“אֲדֹנָי יְהֹוִה נָתַן לִי לְשׁוֹן לִמּוּדִים לָדַעַת לָעוּת אֶת יָעֵף דָּבָר יָעִיר בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר יָעִיר לִי אֹזֶן לִשְׁמֹעַ כַּלִּמּוּדִים.”
“YHVH GOD has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear To hear what is taught.”
Rabbi Chyzkiah quotes this verse and says that Israel is blessed because the Holy One Blessed be He, chose them from among all nations and called them a Holy Nation. “Israel is holy to YHVH, the first fruits of his harvest.” (Jeremiah 2:3). They have the right to connect to the Holy Name because they hold the Torah and anyone that connects to the Torah, has merit to connect to the Holy One Blessed be He.
Rabbi Yitzchak continues to say that they learned from Rabbi Shimon that ‘Holiness’ is a state of perfection that is called ‘The supreme Chokmah’. It is the secret of the supernal Father and Mother from which flows holy anointing oil in known paths to the place that is called supernal Binah, which is Israel Sava and Tevuna. From there come springs and streams. They flow to every direction, to Chokmah and Chassadim until they reach Malchut (זֹאת). When Malchut is blessed from these lights she is called ‘Holiness’, ‘Chokmah’, and ‘the Holy Spirit. Meaning that the ‘spirit’ (Ruach, רוח) is the six sefirot of Zeir Anpin of the holy place that is Chokmah (Atzilut).
When the secrets of the Torah come out from Chokmah (Wisdom) it is called ‘לְשׁוֹן הַקֹּדֶשׁ’ ‘The Holy Tongue’.
The study of the Torah opens streams of wisdom and chassadim from the highest levels. It is important to learn to read the ‘Holy Tongue’ and connect better to the secrets.
