Daily Zohar # 4102 – Chayei Sarah – Wait for him
Daily Zohar 4102
137. מַה זֶּה לִמְחַכֵּה לוֹ? כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (איוב לב) חִכָּה אֶת אִיּוֹב בִּדְבָרִים. וְאֵלּוּ הֵם שֶׁדּוֹחֲקִים לְדָבָר שֶׁל חָכְמָה וּמְדַיְּקִים אוֹתָהּ וּמְחַכִּים לָדַעַת אֶת בֵּרוּר הַדָּבָר, וְהֵם מֻכָּרִים לְרִבּוֹנָם. אֵלּוּ הֵם שֶׁרִבּוֹנָם מִשְׁתַּבֵּחַ בָּהֶם בְּכָל יוֹם. אֵלּוּ הֵם שֶׁנִּכְנָסִים בֵּין עֶלְיוֹנִים קְדוֹשִׁים, וְאֵלּוּ נִכְנָסִים בְּכָל הַשְּׁעָרִים שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה, וְאֵין מִי שֶׁיִּמְחֶה בְיָדָם. אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקָם בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה וּבָעוֹלָם הַבָּא.
Zohar Chayei Sarah
Continued from previous DZ
Blessed are righteous; much good is reserved for them in the next world. There is no greater place for the righteous than for those who know the secret of their master and know how to adhere to him every day. On theme, it is written;
“וּמֵעוֹלָם לֹא שָׁמְעוּ לֹא הֶאֱזִינוּ עַיִן לֹא רָאָתָה אֱלֹהִים זוּלָתְךָ יַעֲשֶׂה לִמְחַכֵּה לוֹ.”
“For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him.” (English translations found @ Isaiah 64:4)
The rewards in the next world are beyond our grasp in this world.
He asks what is “who waits for him” and answers, as it says;
“וֶאֱלִיהוּ חִכָּה אֶת אִיּוֹב בִּדְבָרִים כִּי זְקֵנִים הֵמָּה מִמֶּנּוּ לְיָמִים.”
“Now, because they were years older than he, Elihu had waited to speak to Job.”
These are the ones who try to understand a thing of wisdom, wait for clarity, to know their Master. They are the ones that their Master is praised by them every day, and come among the supreme Holy, and those who enter in all the upper gates, and no one can stop them. Blessed is their lot in this world and in the world to come.
When we study the wisdom and make efforts to understand the ways of Hashem, he bestows us clarity and lets us come closer to him.
Even if we don’t get the understanding we wish to have immediately, we continue with the studies and way for clarity to open for us.
