Daily Zohar 4111
118. בֹּא רְאֵה, אַשְׁרֵי שֹׁמְרֵי מִשְׁפָּט – שֶׁשּׁוֹמְרִים הָאֱמוּנָה שֶׁל הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא הוּא מִשְׁפָּט, וְצָרִיךְ לָאָדָם לִשְׁמֹר שֶׁלֹּא יִסְטֶה לְדֶרֶךְ אַחֶרֶת, אֶלָּא שֶׁיִּהְיֶה שׁוֹמֵר מִשְׁפָּט, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא הוּא מִשְׁפָּט, שֶׁכָּל דְּרָכָיו מִשְׁפָּט.
119. עֹשֵׂה צְדָקָה בְכָל עֵת – וְכִי בְכָל עֵת יָכוֹל אָדָם לַעֲשׂוֹת צְדָקָה? אֶלָּא מִי שֶׁמִּשְׁתַּדֵּל בְּדַרְכֵי הַתּוֹרָה וְעוֹשֶׂה צְדָקָה עִם אוֹתָם שֶׁצְּרִיכִים אוֹתָהּ. שֶׁכָּל מִי שֶׁעוֹשֶׂה צְדָקָה עִם הֶעָנִי, מַרְבֶּה אוֹתָהּ צְדָקָה לְמַעְלָה וּלְמַטָּה.
Continued from previous DZ
And from here, the levels are divided, and some spread out into the world and rule over it. They are all impure, including the force of the ministers in charge of the world.
When Esau came out into the world, he was all red, like a rose whose red color alludes to the left. His hair was like a goat, which is impure, as it is written, “and wild goats will go there to dance” (Isaiah 13:21), and from there, champions who rule the world are appointed.
“אַשְׁרֵי שֹׁמְרֵי מִשְׁפָּט עֹשֵׂה צְדָקָה בְכָל עֵת.”
“Blessed are those who keep justice, And he who does righteousness (Tzedaka) at all times!”
Blessed are the keepers of the faith in the Holy One, Blessed be He, because the Holy One, blessed be He, is justice. A person needs to guard himself against going astray into another path but rather keep the law because the Holy One, blessed be He, is the law, and all of his ways are just.
“הַצּוּר תָּמִים פָּעֳלוֹ כִּי כָל דְּרָכָיו מִשְׁפָּט אֵל אֱמוּנָה וְאֵין עָוֶל צַדִּיק וְיָשָׁר הוּא.”
“He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.”
The center line of the Tree of Life is called ‘justice’ because it holds the right and the left to connect to holiness.
The Holy One, Blessed be He, is the aspect of the Right, and the Shechina is the aspect of the Left. Their unification of males and females is on the center line that is called justice.
That is why the scripture says, “Blessed are those who keep justice,” meaning connected to the Right and the Left with unification and balance.
He asks, can a person “does righteousness (Tzedaka) at all times” and answers, rather, he who walks in the ways of the Torah and does Tzedakah to those who need support is considered as doing Tzedakah at all times because everyone who does Tzedakah to the needy, he causes a unification of Zeir Anpin and Nukva, and draw an abundance of blessings from above to below.
