Hebrew translation:

141. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, וַהֲרֵי שָׁנִינוּ, אָדָם כְּלַל זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה. אָמַר לוֹ, וַדַּאי כָּךְ זֶה בִּכְלָל שֶׁל אָדָם, שֶׁמִּי שֶׁמִּתְחַבֵּר זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה, נִקְרָא אָדָם, וְאָז יְרֵא חֵטְא. וְלֹא עוֹד, אֶלָּא שֶׁשּׁוֹרָה בּוֹ עֲנָוָה. וְלֹא עוֹד, אֶלָּא שֶׁשּׁוֹרֶה בּוֹ חֶסֶד. וּמִי שֶׁלֹּא נִמְצָא זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה, אֵין בּוֹ לֹא יִרְאָה וְלֹא עֲנָוָה וְלֹא חֲסִידוּת. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ נִקְרָא אָדָם כְּלַל הַכֹּל. וְכֵיוָן שֶׁנִּקְרָא אָדָם, שׁוֹרֶה בּוֹ חֶסֶד, שֶׁכָּתוּב (שם פט) אָמַרְתִּי עוֹלָם חֶסֶד יִבָּנֶה וְגוֹ’. וְלֹא יָכוֹל לְהִבָּנוֹת אִם לֹא נִמְצָא זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה.
142. וְכָתוּב (תהלים קג) וְחֶסֶד ה’ מֵעוֹלָם וְעַד עוֹלָם עַל יְרֵאָיו. יְרֵאָיו – כְּלָל שֶׁל אָדָם. דָּבָר אַחֵר וְחֶסֶד ה’ מֵעוֹלָם וְעַד עוֹלָם – אֵלֶּה אוֹתָם כֹּהֲנִים שֶׁבָּאוּ מִצַּד הַחֶסֶד, וְיָרְשׁוּ יְרֻשָּׁה זוֹ שֶׁיָּרְדָה מֵעוֹלָם שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה לָעוֹלָם שֶׁלְּמַטָּה. עַל יְרֵאָיו – כֹּהֲנִים שֶׁלְּמַטָּה, שֶׁכָּתוּב (ויקרא טז) וְכִפֶּר בַּעֲדוֹ וּבְעַד בֵּיתוֹ, לְהִתְכַּלֵּל בִּכְלָל שֶׁל אָדָם. (שם) וְצִדְקָתוֹ לִבְנֵי בָנִים, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁזָּכָה לִבְנֵי בָנִים. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, אִם כָּךְ, מַהוּ וְצִדְקָתוֹ? וְחַסְדּוֹ הָיָה צָרִיךְ לוֹ לִהְיוֹת!


Zohar Naso
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Yehuda said we have learned that man (Adam, אדם) includes male and female. He said to him, surely it is so, for he who connects male and female is called a man (Adam, אדם), and he fears the heavens. He also has humility and Chessed in him. And he that is not found with male and female in him has no fear of the heavens, nor humility, nor piety. And that is why a man (Adam, אדם) is called the inclusion of everything. And since he is called a man (Adam, אדם), there is Chessed in him.
It is written
Psalm 89:3
“כִּי אָמַרְתִּי עוֹלָם חֶסֶד יִבָּנֶה שָׁמַיִם תָּכִן אֱמוּנָתְךָ בָהֶם.”
“For I have said, “Mercy (Chessed) shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.”
The world can not be built if there is no male and female.

To better understand this paragraph, consider a male as Light and a female as a vessel. To build something in this world, we need both, a connection to the Light with desire (vessel) from below.

Psalm 103:17
“וְחֶסֶד יְהוָה מֵעוֹלָם וְעַד עוֹלָם עַל יְרֵאָיו וְצִדְקָתוֹ לִבְנֵי בָנִים.”
“But the mercy of YHVH is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children.”

“Those who fear Him” are in the aspect of (Adam, אדם), meaning include male and female because otherwise, they would not have a fear of Hashem.
Another explanation for “The mercy of YHVH is from everlasting to everlasting” is about the priests who come from the side of Chessed. They inherit inheritance from the upper world, Zeir Anpin, to bring to the lower world, which is Malchut. “On those who fear Him” are the priests below, who include male and female, as it is written;
Leviticus 16:6
“וְהִקְרִיב אַהֲרֹן אֶת פַּר הַחַטָּאת אֲשֶׁר לוֹ וְכִפֶּר בַּעֲדוֹ וּבְעַד בֵּיתוֹ.”
“Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering, which is for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house.”
This verse indicates a female aspect for the priest to be a man (Adam, אדם) that includes male and female.
“And His righteousness to children’s children” is because he merited to have children’s children. Rabbi Yehuda said it should say “His Chessed” instead of “his righteousness” because, by Chessed, he merits children’s children.
