Daily Zohar 4054
472. בֹּא וּרְאֵה, כֵּיוָן שֶׁרָאָה בִלְעָם שֶׁבְּכָל כְּשָׁפָיו וּבְכָל אוֹתוֹ דּוֹרוֹן לֹא יָכֹל לַעֲקֹר אֶת אוֹתָהּ כֹּה, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר וְאָנֹכִי אִקָּרֶה כֹּה, אֶעֱקֹר אֶת הַכֹּה הַזֹּאת – אָמַר לוֹ הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא: רָשָׁע! אַתָּה סָבוּר לַעֲקֹר אוֹתָהּ?! אֲנִי אֶעֱקֹר אוֹתְךָ מִשַּׁלְשְׁלוֹתֶיךָ. מַה כָּתוּב? וַיִּקָּר אֱלֹהִים אֶל בִּלְעָם, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר. אַחַר כָּךְ, כֵּיוָן שֶׁרָאָה שֶׁלֹּא יָכֹל, חָזַר וְאָמַר, וּבֵרֵךְ וְלֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנָּה. וְלֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנּוּ הָיָה צָרִיךְ לוֹ לוֹמַר! אֶלָּא וַדַּאי וְלֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנָּה לְאוֹתָהּ שֶׁכָּתוּב עָלֶיהָ כֹּ”ה, וְכֹה תְדַבֵּר. אֵינִי יָכוֹל לְהַחֲזִירָהּ.

He asks, what does it mean “And he took up his oracle and said:” (Numbers 23:7). It means that he, Balaam, spoke and no others. If so, what is “he took up”? -Rabbi Chiya said he was raising his voice to the desert, which is the Malchut, called “כֹּה.”
Balaam wanted to separate Israel from “כה,” which is the protection of the Shechina, but he realized that his witchcraft and the offerings he brought on the seven altars could not do it for him.
The Holy One, Blessed be Him, told him, wicked, you wish to uproot “כה” from Israel, but I will uproot you from your roots and level.
When Balaam saw that he could not do anything against Israel, he said; Numbers 23:20
“הִנֵּה בָרֵךְ לָקָחְתִּי וּבֵרֵךְ וְלֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנָּה”
“Behold, I took on myself to curse, and I cannot take it (כה) from them.”
As we come closer to Rosh Hashanah, we should pay our debts and stand free of judgments in front of the supreme judge. If you benefit from the Daily Zohar studies and don’t make donations from time to time, now would be a good time to make a ** Donation - Rosh Hashanah and support the Daily Zohar that makes Zohar studies available, free for all.
** Before Rosh Hashanah, we make efforts to pay our ‘debts’ to ALL channels of Lights that benefit you regularly.
