Daily Zohar # 3874 – Ki Tisa – Then you will make your way prosperous
Daily Zohar 3874
120. אַשְׁרֵי הַצַּדִּיקִים שֶׁיּוֹדְעִים סוֹדוֹת הַתּוֹרָה וְנִדְבָּקִים בַּתּוֹרָה, וּמְקַיְּמִים הַפָּסוּק שֶׁכָּתוּב, (יהושע א) וְהָגִיתָ בּוֹ יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה וְגוֹ’. וּבִשְׁבִילָהּ יִזְכּוּ לְחַיֵּי הָעוֹלָם הַבָּא, שֶׁכָּתוּב (דברים ל) כִּי הוּא חַיֶּיךָ וְאֹרֶךְ יָמֶיךָ וְגוֹ’.
Zohar Ki Tisa
Continued from previous DZ
Joshua was immortal until the Snake approached and defiled the Tabernacle, Malchut, as explained before. This is a secret that is written;
“… יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בִּן נוּן נַעַר לֹא יָמִישׁ מִתּוֹךְ הָאֹהֶל.”
“…Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.”
“Young man” “נער” is the aspect of the angel Metat- that is also called “נער” and receives Light from Malchut.
“did not depart from the tabernacle,” which means that he is like the tent of the Tabernacle, which is Malchut. As the tent defiled, so was Joshua, even though he had the mark of holiness and immortality from Mount Sinai. Since the moon was blemished from the Left, he couldn’t be saved alone from that blemish.
Praised are the Tzadikim that know the secrets of the Torah, cling to it, and fulfill the precept;
“לֹא יָמוּשׁ סֵפֶר הַתּוֹרָה הַזֶּה מִפִּיךָ וְהָגִיתָ בּוֹ יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה לְמַעַן תִּשְׁמֹר לַעֲשׂוֹת כְּכָל הַכָּתוּב בּוֹ כִּי אָז תַּצְלִיחַ אֶת דְּרָכֶךָ וְאָז תַּשְׂכִּיל.”
“This Book of the Torah shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
Because of their connection to the Torah, they will merit life in the world to come, as it is written “for this is your life and the length of your days” in;
“לְאַהֲבָה אֶת יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לִשְׁמֹעַ בְּקֹלוֹ וּלְדָבְקָה בוֹ כִּי הוּא חַיֶּיךָ וְאֹרֶךְ יָמֶיךָ לָשֶׁבֶת עַל הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּע יְהוָה לַאֲבֹתֶיךָ לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיַעֲקֹב לָתֵת לָהֶם.”
“by loving YHVH your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding close to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, so that you may live in the land which YHVH swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
We concluded the study of Zohar Ki Tisa, Baruch Hashem. בָּרוּךְ יְהֹוָה לְעוֹלָם אָמֵן וְאָמֵן
