Daily Zohar # 3887 – Pekudei – Sooner or later, everything is balanced
Daily Zohar 3887
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Shimon explains that Balak and Balaam took the 42 sacrifices from the other side and offered them to the Holy One Blessed be He.
Their sacrifice was called a ‘curse from Israel,’ awaiting collection from the other side.
The secret is understood when reading 2 Kings 2:24
“וַיִּפֶן אַחֲרָיו וַיִּרְאֵם וַיְקַלְלֵם בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה וַתֵּצֶאנָה שְׁתַּיִם דֻּבִּים מִן הַיַּעַר וַתְּבַקַּעְנָה מֵהֶם אַרְבָּעִים וּשְׁנֵי יְלָדִים.”
“When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of YHVH. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two of the boys.”
The boys that went after Elisha the prophet were from the other side, the side of the curse. The prophet saw that they deserved punishment, and he cursed them in the name of YHVH, and by that curse, he removed the obligation of Hashem related to the sacrifices of Balak and Balaam.
Nothing is lost before Hashem, and sooner or later, everything is balanced for good or bad.
