Hebrew translation:

117. וְעַד שֶׁיַּעֲבֹר הַזֻּהֲמָה מִיָּדוֹ לֹא יְבָרֵךְ, וּבֵאַרְנוּ. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ, בְּטֶרֶם יְקַדֵּשׁ הָאָדָם אֶת יָדָיו בַּבֹּקֶר, נִקְרָא טָמֵא. כֵּיוָן שֶׁהִתְקַדֵּשׁ, נִקְרָא טָהוֹר. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ אַל יִטֹּל אֶלָּא מִיָּד שֶׁנִּטְהֲרָה בָּרִאשׁוֹנָה, שֶׁכָּתוּב (במדבר יט) וְהִזָּה הַטָּהוֹר עַל הַטָּמֵא. זֶה נִקְרָא טָהוֹר, וְזֶה נִקְרָא טָמֵא.
118. מִשּׁוּם כָּךְ כְּלִי אֶחָד לְמַעְלָה וּכְלִי אֶחָד לְמַטָּה, זֶה קָדוֹשׁ וְזֶה טָמֵא. וְאָסוּר לַעֲשׂוֹת דָּבָר עִם אוֹתָם הַמַּיִם, אֶלָּא צָרִיךְ לִשְׁפֹּךְ אוֹתָם בְּמָקוֹם שֶׁאֲנָשִׁים לֹא עוֹבְרִים עֲלֵיהֶם וְלֹא יָלִין אוֹתָם בַּבַּיִת, שֶׁהֲרֵי כֵּיוָן שֶׁנִּשְׁפְּכוּ בָּאָרֶץ, רוּחַ הַטֻּמְאָה נִמְצֵאת שָׁם וִיכוֹלָה לְהַזִּיק. וְאִם חָפַר לָהֶם מִדְרוֹן תַּחַת הָאָרֶץ שֶׁלֹּא יֵרָאוּ – יָפֶה.
119. וְלֹא יִתֵּן אוֹתָם לְנָשִׁים מְכַשְּׁפוֹת שֶׁיּוּכְלוּ לְהָרַע בָּהֶם לִבְנֵי אָדָם, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁאוֹתָם הַמַּיִם שֶׁהִתְקַלְּלוּ, וְהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא רוֹצֶה לְטַהֵר אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל שֶׁיִּהְיוּ קְדוֹשִׁים, שֶׁכָּתוּב (יחזקאל לו) וְזָרַקְתִּי עֲלֵיכֶם מַיִם טְהוֹרִים מִכֹּל טֻמְאוֹתֵיכֶם וּמִכָּל גִּלּוּלֵיכֶם אֲטַהֵר אֶתְכֶם.


Zohar Vayeshev
Continued from previous DZ
Before a person washes his hands, he is considered impure. Therefore we should recite the blessing only after the washing, and then the person is called pure.
Numbers 19:19 “וְהִזָּה הַטָּהֹר עַל הַטָּמֵא” “The clean person shall sprinkle the unclean”
The Torah instructs us to use the clean to cleanse the unclean. The right-hand fills the washing cup, then transfers the clean water to the left hand to wash the right hand. Therefore, the right hand is washed first to become pure, and then the right-hand washes the left.

The upper vessel is pure, and the lower vessel is impure. The water in the lower vessel is forbidden for use. They should not stay at home because the impure spirit can hurt the people if they pour the water on the foor. They should go underground as we do in our time when we flush them into the public drain system.

We should not give the impure waters to witches who can use them to harm human beings because this water is cursed. The Holy One Blessed be He wants to purify Israel to be holy, as it is written;
Ezekiel 36:25 “וְזָרַקְתִּי עֲלֵיכֶם מַיִם טְהוֹרִים וּטְהַרְתֶּם מִכֹּל טֻמְאוֹתֵיכֶם וּמִכָּל גִּלּוּלֵיכֶם אֲטַהֵר אֶתְכֶם.”
“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.”

The common saying “I wash my hands from…” means a desire of a person to disconnect from something they see as negative.
To stay on the pure side, we keep a distance from all kinds of negativity that infect us with impurities. We want to wash our hands from these impurities as soon as possible to protect ourselves from the judgment and harm that they can bring on us.
We do that by ‘washing’ them away with the Light of Chassadim that we draw with positive actions, like asking forgiveness from those we hurt, studying, Tzedakah, Mikveh, and anything that reveals light.
Before we go to sleep, we wash the day’s impurities when we do the bedtime Shema.
