Daily Zohar 4079
118. וְיוֹם רְבִיעִי הוּא יוֹם מָאוּס מִבּוֹנִים, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (תהלים קיח) אֶבֶן מָאֲסוּ הַבּוֹנִים. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (שיר א) בְּנֵי אִמִּי נִחֲרוּ בִי. שֶׁהֲרֵי אוֹרָה זוֹ הִקְטִינָה עַצְמָהּ וְהָאוֹר שֶׁלָּהּ, וְהַקְּלִפּוֹת נִתְקְנוּ עַל מְקוֹמָם. כָּל אוֹתָם הַמְּאוֹרוֹת שֶׁמְּאִירִים, כֻּלָּם תְּלוּיִים בִּרְקִיעַ הַשָּׁמַיִם הַזֶּה לְהַתְקִין בָּהֶם כִּסֵּא דָוִד (מַלְכוּת).
Continued from previous DZ
The Kingdom of the House of David was established on the fourth day, which is the fourth leg of the Holy throne. At that time, the letters were set in their proper place.
The four sefirot, Netzach, Hod, Yessod, and Malchut, are the secret of the four Creatures of the Holy Throne. They carry Malchut to unify with Zeir Anpin. For that reason, they are also called the legs of the throne. Netzach is the secret of a Lion’s face, Hod is an Ox’s face, Yessod is for Eagle, and Malchut is the secret of the face of Man.
The fourth day, Wednesday is the day of David’s kingdom. This day was rejected by the builders as it is written;
“אֶבֶן מָאֲסוּ הַבּוֹנִים הָיְתָה לְרֹאשׁ פִּנָּה.”
“The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.”
Also, “בְּנֵי אִמִּי נִחֲרוּ בִי” “ My mother’s sons were angry with me” (Songs 1:6).
The “Stone” is the name of Malchut in the state of smallness, which means diminished Light.
The “Builders” are the Tzadikim that make corrections in Malchut to make it ready for unification with Zeir Anpin.
The scripture says that in the beginning, the builders rejected Malchut because she reduced herself and its light. Because of that, the Klipot settled in their place with the power to control. After Malchut came face to face with Zeir Anpin, it is said, “Has become the chief cornerstone.”
The process of diminishing the Light of Malchut and settling the Klipot was made to create a world of Tikun that requires elevating Malchut to Zeir Anpin to receive the Light of Binah that was part of her before the separation from the world of Atzilut.
Malchut is called the Kingdom of David because Mashiach, which would be from the line of King David, would restore the Light that Malchut lost at the beginning.
Friday would be a good time to make a donation and Support the Daily Zohar , 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.
