125. רַבִּי יִצְחָק פָּתַח וְאָמַר, (תהלים צב) צַדִּיק כַּתָּמָר יִפְרָח כְּאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן יִשְׂגֶּה. צַדִּיק כַּתָּמָר יִפְרָח, מִפְּנֵי מָה הִקִּישׁ צַדִּיק לְתָמָר? מַה תָּמָר כֵּיוָן שֶׁגּוֹזְרִים אוֹתוֹ לֹא עוֹלֶה עַד זְמַן רַב – אַף כָּךְ צַדִּיק, כֵּיוָן שֶׁאָבַד מִן הָעוֹלָם, לֹא עוֹלֶה אַחֵר תַּחְתָּיו עַד זְמַן רַב. כְּאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן יִשְׂגֶּה – אַף כָּךְ גַּם.
126. כַּתָּמָר יִפְרָח – מַה תָּמָר לֹא עוֹלֶה אֶלָּא זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה, אַף כָּךְ הַצַּדִּיק לֹא עוֹלֶה אֶלָּא זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה. הַזָּכָר צַדִּיק וְהַנְּקֵבָה צַדֶּקֶת, כְּמוֹ שֶׁאַבְרָהָם וְשָׂרָה.
127. כְּאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן יִשְׂגֶּה – מָה הָאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן עֶלְיוֹן עַל הַכֹּל וְהַכֹּל יוֹשְׁבִים תַּחְתָּיו – אַף כָּךְ הַצַּדִּיק הוּא עֶלְיוֹן עַל הַכֹּל וְהַכֹּל יוֹשְׁבִים תַּחְתָּיו. וְהָעוֹלָם אֵינוֹ עוֹמֵד אֶלָּא עַל צַדִּיק אֶחָד, שֶׁכָּתוּב (משלי י) וְצַדִּיק יְסוֹד עוֹלָם. וְעָלָיו הָעוֹלָם עוֹמֵד, וּבִגְלָלוֹ נִסְמָךְ, וְעָלָיו נִשְׁתָּל.

Continued from previous DZ
Psalm 92:13
“צַדִּיק כַּתָּמָר יִפְרָח כְּאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן יִשְׂגֶּה.”
“The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.”
Rabbi Yitzchak asks why the righteous are compared to a palm tree. He explains that when a palm tree is cut down, it needs a long time to grow back. If a righteous was ‘cut down’, meaning that he is no longer with us in this world, it will take a long time until another takes his place. It could be as long as 70 years. This is in the secret of the seven sefirot Chessed to Malchut that each one of them include 10 private sefirot. We need the seven sefirot to create completion in the seventh Sefira, Malchut, and that is why there is a need for seventy years.

“Flourish like a palm tree” is to tell us that a palm tree grows only as male and female pair. The male is righteous and the female is righteous like Abraham and Sarah. Therefore he could reach perfection in seventy full years.

“He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon” – As the cedar tree is above all other trees, so is righteous that all others are under him, meaning that they exist because of his merits.
The righteous are the Yessod of Zeir Anpin who controls the Right and the Left lines. The root of Yessod is in Binah and is considered to be above all the lower sefirot.
Proverbs 10:25
“כַּעֲבוֹר סוּפָה וְאֵין רָשָׁע וְצַדִּיק יְסוֹד עוֹלָם.”
“When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, But the righteous has an everlasting foundation of the world.”
Yessod brings Light from Binah to all the lower worlds. He stands on the Nukva, Malchut, which is the foundation of the world, He nourishes her from the three lines above.
