Daily Zohar 3972
123. שְׁלֹשָׁה רָאשִׁים נִמְצָאִים (מִתְחַבְּרִים) בְּמֶרְכָּבוֹת אֵלּוּ. חֶשְׁבּוֹנָם – רֹאשׁ אֶחָד, שִׁשִּׁים וּשְׁנַיִם אֶלֶף וּשְׁבַע מֵאוֹת. רֹאשׁ שֵׁנִי, אַרְבָּעִים וְאֶחָד אֶלֶף וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת. רֹאשׁ שְׁלִישִׁי, חֲמִשִּׁים וּשְׁלֹשָׁה אֶלֶף וְאַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת. פְּרָט לְכָל אֵלּוּ הַדְּרָגוֹת הָאֲחֵרוֹת שֶׁנִּפְרָדוֹת בְּצִדֵּיהֶן, וְאֵין לָהֶן חֶשְׁבּוֹן. כֻּלָּן דְּרָגוֹת עַל דְּרָגוֹת, פְּרָט לְכַמָּה חֲיָלוֹת שֶׁל שׁוֹמְרֵי חֹק שֶׁהֵם לְמַטָּה, חֲצוּפִים כַּכֶּלֶב, נוֹשְׁכִים כַּחֲמוֹר. אוֹי לְמִי שֶׁנִּמְצָא לִפְנֵיהֶם, וְדִין שֶׁלָּהֶם בְּצַד רְבִיעִי.
124. דֶּגֶל רְבִיעִי, אָדָ”ם, רְפָאֵ”ל, מַעֲרָב. יַחַד אִתּוֹ רְפוּאָה. בַּצַּד שֶׁאָדָם נִכְלָל, דִּין עֶלְיוֹן עָלָיו מִתְרַפֵּא. זֶה (אֶחָד) אוֹחֵז בְּקַרְנֵי הַשּׁוֹר, כְּשֶׁרוֹצֶה לְהַכְנִיסָם לִתְהוֹם רַבָּה, וְכוֹפֵת אוֹתָם שֶׁלֹּא יִשָּׂרֵף הָעוֹלָם. לְאַחַר זֶה שׁוֹרֶה קוֹל דְּמָמָה דַּקָּה, דִּין. (כָּאן) דָּבָר בַּחֲשַׁאי, לֹא נִשְׁמָע דְּבַר הֲבָרָה כְּלָל.

We have studied that the supernal Torah is white fire and is written in black fire on white fire. One fire is the Left line which is called fire. This fire is divided into four fires, to be included from four sides as explained above (#121). One line has the aspect of water, which is the Right line, called water.
It is divided into four because it includes four sides. Also, Ruach (spirit), which is the Middle line, is divided into four, that is, included from all four sides. They are the three lines that were received in Malchut.
Three heads are in these camps corresponding to three tribes, in the camp of Dan. Their count is; one head sixty-two thousand and seven hundred, and is the number of the tribe of Dan. The second head, forty-one thousand and five hundred. And is a number of the tribe of Asher. The third head, fifty-three thousand and four hundred. And is a number of the tribe of Naphtali. Besides those, there are other levels, which spread on their side but are not counted. These are the women and children of these three tribes who were previously mentioned. And they are all on different levels, except for a few forces of judgment drawn from the left line of the Klipot, who are as brazen as a dog and bite like a donkey. They are not part of those camps of the left and receive their nourishments from Malchut. Wow, to those who are with them on the fourth side and under their judgment, Malchut.
Brazen as a dog that doesn’t have fear, bite like a donkey because the donkey’s bite is stronger than a dog’s bite.
The fourth flag is the flag of the camp of Ephraim. It is in terms of holy animals of the Holy throne, is a face of man, and of the four angels is the angel, Raphael. The camp of Ephraim travels on the west side. These are all aspects of Malchut. The side of Ephraim brings healing by representing the side of man, and the supreme decree that is included heals him.
This side grips the horns of the Ox when it wants to pull them into the great abyss. He binds the Ox with his horns to prevent the judgments from burning the world. After the fire is pushed away, a state of the thin sound of silence (קוֹל דְּמָמָה דַּקָּה) takes over. It is done in secret, and no syllable is heard at all.
The camps of Israel and their movements in the desert were arranged according to the spiritual relations between the tribes. They were arranged in four groups of three tribes each, and the Holy Tabernacle in the middle.
Each ‘flag’ represented a connection to the upper levels according to the Holy Chariot and its living creatures that traveled with them. The fourth flag of Ephraim was related to the face of man, and it could control the Ox, Left, and its ability to burn the whole world.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, especially if you didn’t donate in the past week. Giving on Friday, which is an aspect of Yessod, expands the vessel for the Light and honor of Shabbat.
** Your donation doesn’t have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
