Daily Zohar # 4003 – Balak – Thirteen for one
Daily Zohar 4003
364. קָמוּ רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר וְהַחֲבֵרִים, וְלֹא הִשְׁאִירוּ אָדָם לַעֲמֹד בַּבַּיִת. מִיָּד רָאוּ אוֹתוֹ עַמּוּד אֵשׁ שֶׁעוֹלֶה, וְרַבִּי יוֹסֵי פָּתַח עֵינָיו, וְאוֹתוֹ תִּינוֹק דָּבוּק פִּיו בְּפִיו. אָמַר רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר, אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקֵנוּ שֶׁרָאִינוּ תְחִיַּת הַמֵּתִים עַיִן בְּעַיִן. קָרְבוּ אֵלָיו, וְהָיָה אוֹתוֹ תִּינוֹק יָשֵׁן כְּאִלּוּ שֶׁגָּוַע מֵהָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה. אָמְרוּ, אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקְךָ רַבִּי יוֹסֵי, וּבָרוּךְ הָרַחֲמָן שֶׁהִרְחִישׁ לְךָ נֵס עַל הַצְּעָקָה וְהַבְּכִי שֶׁל בִּנְךָ וּבִדְבָרָיו, שֶׁכָּךְ דָּחַק בִּדְבָרִים יָפִים לְשַׁעַר הַשָּׁמַיִם, בִּדְבָרָיו וּבְדִמְעוֹתָיו הוֹסִיפוּ לְךָ חַיִּים.
Why do we continue with the study of Zohar Balak?
We follow every Zohar portion study in sequence from paragraph #1 until the end of the portion. Some Zohar portions are shorter than others. When we finish a study of a specific Zohar portion, we continue with the last one or the following one. We have already finished the study of Zohar Pinchas and Matot. You can also access any previous studies using the link in the top menu, “DAILY ZOHAR,” and select any of the portions. We also provide links to download previous Zohar studies (PDFs) on the home page.
In the following Shabbat, we read the two portions of Matot and Masei, Zohar Matot is very short, and we completed it. There is no Zohar for Masei; we continued with Balak this week; the following week would be Devarim, but no Zohar for Devarim. The Kabbalists say that the study of Devarim is concealed in Balak. So we will continue with Balak for a few more weeks.
I recommend to all to read the Torah portion of the week (Download link available on the home page) and study from other sources. The Daily Zohar provides over 13 years of daily studies of the Zohar and B”H I will have the energy and support of the Tzadikim to continue until we finish the study of the entire Zohar. Would you please pray for the Daily Zohar and me?
Anyone can post any question related to any Torah or Zohar portions in the comments section. I receive immediate notification from the system on any comment posted anywhere on the website. I am happy to answer, B’Li Neder, as soon as I can.
With love to all, Zion
Continued from previous DZ
While they were sitting, they heard one voice say, Blessed, are you, Rabbi Yossi, that the words of that little kid, and his tears, ascended to the throne of the Holy King, and the judgment was made. Thirteen people have been given to the angel of death to redeem you, and here twenty-two years have been added to you until you teach Torah to the perfect kid, who is beloved before the Holy One, Blessed be He.
Rabbi Elazar and the friends got up and did not let anyone stand in the house. Immediately they saw that the pillar of fire had gone away, Rabbi Yossi opened his eyes, and that boy was still mouth over mouth.
Rabbi Elazar said, how praiseworthy is our share that we have seen the Resurrection of the dead in front of our eyes. They came closer to Rabbi Yossi, and the boy was sleeping as if he had passed away from this world. They said, Blessed is your portion, Rabbi Yossi, and blessed is the Merciful One who performed a miracle for you because of your son’s shouts and cries. In his words, he was pushing beautiful words to the gate of heaven, and for that and his tears, your life was extended.
The child was successful with his arguments and cries, and the heavens resurrected his father. The angel of death had to be ‘paid’ for the soul that was taken from him. 13 people died to replace the soul of Rabbi Yossi of Pekiin.
