181. בִּזְמַן אַחֵר בִּכְלָל, שָׁבוּעוֹת סְתָם. וְלֹא צָרִיךְ לְאָדָם אַחֵר לַעֲשׂוֹת מֵהֶם פְּרָט, חוּץ מִשְּׁלֹמֹה, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהֵם שִׁבְעַת יָמִים שֶׁלְּמַטָּה, לֹא מְאִירִים בִשְׁלֵמוּת, עַד שֶׁבָּא שְׁלֹמֹה, וְאָז עָמְדָה הַלְּבָנָה בְּהַשְׁלָמָתָהּ בְּאוֹתָם שִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים. וְכָאן חַג שָׁבוּעוֹת סְתָם, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁנִּכְלְלוּ תַחְתּוֹנִים בָּעֶלְיוֹנִים, וְלֹא הֵאִירוּ כְּמוֹ הַיּוֹם שֶׁל שְׁלֹמֹה.

He asks, the name Shavuot means ‘Weeks’, but there is no mention of the number of weeks. He answers that when it says ‘Shavuot’ it implies seven weeks as it is written;
“שִׁבְעָה שָׁבֻעֹת תִּסְפָּר לָךְ מֵהָחֵל חֶרְמֵשׁ בַּקָּמָה תָּחֵל לִסְפֹּר שִׁבְעָה שָׁבֻעוֹת.”
“You shall count seven weeks for yourself; begin to count the seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain.”
The name is written to say that it includes the seven levels above from Israel Sava and Tevuna of Binah, and the seven levels below. They are all included in the fiftieth day because when the seven upper levels awaken, so do the lower seven.
When King Solomon reached the level of the fiftieth gate, Malchut received the full Light from Binah, and he revealed the 14 days that were concealed in the fiftieth gate.
1 Kings 8:65
“וַיַּעַשׂ שְׁלֹמֹה בָעֵת הַהִיא אֶת הֶחָג וְכָל יִשְׂרָאֵל עִמּוֹ קָהָל גָּדוֹל מִלְּבוֹא חֲמָת עַד נַחַל מִצְרַיִם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ שִׁבְעַת יָמִים וְשִׁבְעַת יָמִים אַרְבָּעָה עָשָׂר יוֹם.”
“At that time Solomon held a feast, and all Israel with him, a great assembly from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt, before YHVH our God, seven days and seven more days—fourteen days.”
Except in Solomon’s time, the fourteen days were known as ‘weeks’, ‘Shavuot’, because other people could not reveal the elements in the fiftieth gate as King Solomon. During his time, the moon, Malchut, was in full light and illuminated the seven days.
But here, it says ‘holiday of Shavuot’, which does not specify the inner parts, because seven lower days are included in the upper seven days and do not illuminate as in the days of Solomon.
There is a principle of studying spiritual principles. One way is called ‘whole’ where all the details are included in the whole. Another way is to see the details of the spiritual principle.
To view the details, one needs to understand the ‘whole’. When the whole is clear then the details are revealed.
Also, when the Light illuminates the spiritual subject then the details can point to the ‘whole’.
King Solomon had a complete understanding of the whole and the details because his wisdom was on the highest level.
