Daily Zohar # 3908 – Tazria – Better than gold and silver
Daily Zohar 3908
111. בֹּא רְאֵה, שָׁם לֹא נִמְצֵאת שְׁלֵמוּת שֶׁל הַכֹּל, וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ נִקְרָא אִישׁ. אֲבָל כָּאן שְׁלֵמוּת הַכֹּל וְהַכְּלָל שֶׁל הַכֹּל, מִשּׁוּם כָּךְ נִקְרָא אָדָם. קָרָא עָלָיו, (תהלים קיט) טוֹב לִי תּוֹרַת פִּיךָ מֵאַלְפֵי זָהָב וָכָסֶף.
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Yitzchak told Rabbi Yehuda to go to Rabbi Aba, from whom he learned the secret, and he could not share it because Rabbi Aba asked him not to share. Rabbi Yehuda went to Rabbi Aba and found him teaching, saying; when can we say that everything is in a state of perfection. He answers when the Holy One Blessed be He sits on his throne, which is Malchut, but there is no completion until the likeness of man אדם appears on the throne.
“וּמִמַּעַל לָרָקִיעַ אֲשֶׁר עַל רֹאשָׁם כְּמַרְאֵה אֶבֶן סַפִּיר דְּמוּת כִּסֵּא וְעַל דְּמוּת הַכִּסֵּא דְּמוּת כְּמַרְאֵה אָדָם עָלָיו מִלְמָעְלָה.”
“And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man (אדם) high above it.”
Rabbi Yehuda said, blessed is the Merciful that guided me to find you with this teaching. Then he said, but it is written: “YHVH man (איש) of war” (Exodus 15:3), and not man (אדם). Rabbi Aba replied, your question is good.
“YHVH man (איש) of war” was said in the Song of the Sea sung after executing the judgment on the Egyptians, drowning their army in the sea. At that time, there was no perfection of the system. But when YHVH sits on his throne, the image of man, אדם, appears on it to represent the complete and perfect system. Because man אדם is the expression of everything in this world.
“טוֹב לִי תוֹרַת פִּיךָ מֵאַלְפֵי זָהָב וָכָסֶף.”
“The law (Torah) of Your mouth is better to me Than thousands of coins of gold and silver.”
