Daily Zohar # 3789 – Vayetze – Between two females, one concealed and one revealed
105. שְׁנֵי עוֹלָמוֹת יָרַשׁ יַעֲקֹב – אֶחָד הָעוֹלָם שֶׁנִּגְלָה, וְאֶחָד הָעוֹלָם שֶׁהִתְכַּסָּה, כְּמוֹ שֶׁהֵם מַמָּשׁ. מֵאֶחָד יָצְאוּ שִׁשָּׁה שְׁבָטִים, וּמֵאֶחָד יָצְאוּ שְׁנֵי שְׁבָטִים. הָעוֹלָם הַמְכֻסֶּה הוֹצִיא שִׁשָּׁה צְדָדִים, וְהָעוֹלָם הַמְגֻלֶּה הוֹצִיא שְׁנַיִם, וְאוֹתָם שְׁנֵי הַכְּרוּבִים שֶׁתַּחְתֶּיהָ. וְיַעֲקֹב נִמְצָא בֵּין שְׁנֵי עוֹלָמוֹת, בִּדְמוּתָם מַמָּשׁ, וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ כָּל דִּבְרֵי לֵאָה הָיוּ בְּנִכְסֶה, וְשֶׁל רָחֵל בְּהִתְגַּלּוּת.
106. וַיַּרְא וְהִנֵּה בְאֵר בַּשָּׂדֶה. רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר אָמַר, כָּתוּב (ישעיה נא) שִׁמְעוּ אֵלַי רֹדְפֵי צֶדֶק. אוֹתָם הַמְבַקְשִׁים סוֹד הָאֱמוּנָה, אוֹתָם שֶׁנִּדְבְּקוּ בְּקֶשֶׁר הָאֱמוּנָה, אוֹתָם שֶׁיּוֹדְעִים דַּרְכֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ הָעֶלְיוֹן [קִרְבוּ שִׁמְעוּ].
Continued from previous DZ
And Jacob alone rolled the stone and did not need help from others. For Jacob was the chosen of the patriarchs, that is, the middle line, and so by continuing Chassadim to Malchut, he rolled the stone from the well’s mouth.
Since Jacob started doing actions in the world below to win over Esau, he could also beat him in the upper world. This is the secret of rolling the stone from the well’s mouth. It represents the cancellation of Esau’s force above that was going against Israel.
Jacob inherited two worlds, one world of the revealed and one world of the hidden, which are the two females of Zeir Anpin, the one above the chest is Leah, and the one below the chest is Rachel. He was married to both of them, and because he represents the middle line, he unified the upper and lower levels.
From Leah that represents the concealed world, came six tribes. They draw from Chokmah, Binah, Da’at, Chessed, Gevurah, and Tiferet of the vessels. And Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, and Yessod of the Lights that come from above the chest level of Zeir Anpin.
From Rachel that represents the revealed world, from below the chest of Zeir Anpin, came two that are Yessod that included Netzach, Hod, and Malchut. They are the two cherubs, Metat-ron and Sandal-fon. Metat- is drawn from Yessod and Zeir Anpin and Sandal- from Malchut of Zeir Anpin. They correspond to Rachel’s children, Joseph and Benjamin. As a unifier of the middle line, Jacob is between the revealed and the concealed worlds and the secret of Shema Israel and Baruch Shem. For that reason, Leah’s words were covered and hidden, and Rachel’s words were in the reveal.
“And he looked and saw a well in the field” (Genesis 29:2)
“שִׁמְעוּ אֵלַי רֹדְפֵי צֶדֶק מְבַקְשֵׁי יְהוָה הַבִּיטוּ אֶל צוּר חֻצַּבְתֶּם וְאֶל מַקֶּבֶת בּוֹר נֻקַּרְתֶּם.”
“Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness (‘Tzedek,’ צֶדֶק), You who seek YHVH: Look to the rock from which you were hewn, And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.”
Rabbi Elazar quotes this verse and explains that it is directed to the seekers that go for the correction of the Nukva that is called Tzedek צֶדֶק. They demand justice to correct the Nukva that is also called faith and the secret of the Left line. They have a bond of faith that is the secret of the Right line and know the ways of the supernal King that is the secret of the middle line. They have earned the connection to the three lines, and they can pursue the correction of the Nukva.
