Daily Zohar 3855
126. אֶלָּא, (דניאל ב) יִהְיֶה שֵׁם הָאֱלוֹהַּ מְבֹרָךְ מִן הָעוֹלָם וְעַד הָעוֹלָם, שֶׁהַחָכְמָה וְהַגְּבוּרָה שֶׁלּוֹ הִיא, וְהוּא מְשַׁנֶּה עִדָּנִים וּזְמַנִּים וְגוֹ’. יוֹדֵעַ מַה בַּחֲשֵׁכָה, וְהָאוֹר עִמּוֹ שָׁרוּי. בֹּא וּרְאֵה, מִי שֶׁשָּׁרוּי בְּאוֹר לֹא יוּכַל לְהִסְתַּכֵּל וְלִרְאוֹת מַה שֶּׁבַּחֲשֵׁכָה. אֲבָל הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לֹא כָּךְ, יוֹדֵעַ מַה בַּחֲשֵׁכָה אַף עַל גַּב שֶׁהָאוֹר שָׁרוּי עִמּוֹ. מִתּוֹךְ הָאוֹר מִסְתַּכֵּל בַּחֹשֶׁךְ וְיוֹדֵעַ כָּל מַה שֶּׁשָּׁם.

The elder debates himself about what to do next. He should not reveal this secret, and If he doesn’t tell it, the righteous scholars, Rabbi Chiyah and Rabbi Yossi, that are with him, would be as orphans to this secret.
The elder bowed his face down and said;
“בְּיָדְךָ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי פָּדִיתָה אוֹתִי יְהוָה אֵל אֱמֶת.”
“Into Your hand, I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O YHVH God of truth.”
The widow of the deceased without children is the aspect of the vessel. She was below her husband, and after the Yibum, she became higher than him because the soul of her deceased husband came into her new child.
How can his spouse become his mother, and his brother become his father? It is a wonder over wonder, and it looks like an upside-down world. What was above is now below, and what was below is now above.
“עָנֵה דָנִיֵּאל, וְאָמַר–לֶהֱוֵא שְׁמֵהּ דִּי-אֱלָהָא מְבָרַךְ, מִן-עָלְמָא וְעַד עָלְמָא: דִּי חָכְמְתָא וּגְבוּרְתָא, דִּי לֵהּ-הִיא”
“Daniel spoke and said: Blessed be the name of God from everlasting even unto everlasting for wisdom and might are His”
The wisdom and the might are from the Holy name. He knows what is in the darkness and what is in the light. A person in this world who is in a place of light cannot see in the darkness. But the Holy One Blessed be He, knows what is concealed in darkness even though he is the Light.
