Daily Zohar 3928
103. פָּתַח רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר וְאָמַר, (בראשית כט) וַיַּרְא וְהִנֵּה בְאֵר בַּשָּׂדֶה וְגוֹ’, וְנֶאֶסְפוּ שָׁמָּה כָל הָעֲדָרִים וְגוֹ’. יֵשׁ לְהִסְתַּכֵּל בַּפְּסוּקִים הַלָּלוּ, וְהֵם בְּסוֹד הַחָכְמָה שֶׁלָּמַדְתִּי מֵאַבָּא, וְכָךְ לָמַדְתִּי: וַיַּרְא וְהִנֵּה בְאֵר בַּשָּׂדֶה, אֵיזוֹ בְּאֵר? זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (במדבר כא) בְּאֵר חֲפָרוּהָ שָׂרִים כָּרוּהָ נְדִיבֵי הָעָם. וְהִנֵּה שָׁם שְׁלֹשָׁה עֶדְרֵי צֹאן רֹבְצִים עָלֶיהָ, אֵלּוּ הֵם נֵצַח סוֹד יְסוֹד, שֶׁאֵלּוּ הֵם הָרוֹבְצִים עָלֶיהָ וְעוֹמְדִים עָלֶיהָ. וּמֵאֵלֶּה מִתְמַלֵּאת הַבְּאֵר הַזּוֹ בִּבְרָכוֹת.
Zohar Acharei Mot
Continued from previous DZ
We learned that when the supreme king, Zeir Anpin, sits in the delights of kings with his crowns, it is written, “While the king is at his table, My spikenard sends forth its fragrance” (Songs 1:12). The fragrance is Yessod which brings blessings for the unification of the King, Zeir Anpin, and the Queen, Malchut. Then all the worlds above and below are blessed.
The Holy Candle, Rabbi Shimon, is adorned with the crowns of the upper level that is the Mochin of Zeir Anpin that was received from the supernal Father and Mother.
The praises that Rabbi Shimon and his friends elevate from below have the aspect of female water, “מים נוקבין,” and Malchut adorned herself with these praises at the time of the unification with Zeir Anpin that brings blessings to all the friends.
“וַיַּרְא וְהִנֵּה בְאֵר בַּשָּׂדֶה וְהִנֵּה שָׁם שְׁלֹשָׁה עֶדְרֵי צֹאן רֹבְצִים עָלֶיהָ כִּי מִן הַבְּאֵר הַהִוא יַשְׁקוּ הָעֲדָרִים וְהָאֶבֶן גְּדֹלָה עַל פִּי הַבְּאֵר.”
“He looked and saw a well in the field, and behold, three flocks of sheep were lying there beside it because they watered the flocks from that well. Now the stone on the mouth of the well was large.”
Rabbi Elazar explains that he learned secret wisdom from this verse from his father, Rabbi Shimon.
“He looked and saw a well in the field” refers to the well mentioned in Numbers 21:18
“בְּאֵר חֲפָרוּהָ שָׂרִים כָּרוּהָ נְדִיבֵי הָעָם בִּמְחֹקֵק בְּמִשְׁעֲנֹתָם וּמִמִּדְבָּר מַתָּנָה.”
“The well the leaders sank, Dug by the nation’s nobles, By the lawgiver, with their staves.” And from the wilderness, they went to Mattanah,”
This well is Malchut founded by the ‘nobles’, the supernal Father and Mother.
“And behold, three flocks of sheep were lying there beside it” refers to Netzach, Hod, and Yessod that lay above Malchut, that is the well that was filled with blessings.
