Daily Zohar 4231
172. אָמַר לוֹ רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, וּבְאוֹתוֹ הַבַּיִת הַאִם יָדַעְתָּ מִקֹּדֶם לָכֵן אִם נִזּוֹק בּוֹ אִישׁ אַחֵר? אָמַר לוֹ, יָדַעְתִּי, שֶׁהֲרֵי מִכַּמָּה יָמִים נִזּוֹק בּוֹ אִישׁ אֶחָד, וְהָיוּ אוֹמְרִים שֶׁהָיָה חוֹלֶה, וּמֵהֶם אוֹמְרִים שֶׁרוּחַ שֶׁל הַבַּיִת, וְאַחַר כָּךְ נִכְנְסוּ בוֹ כַּמָּה אֲנָשִׁים וְלֹא נִזּוֹקוּ. אָמְרוּ, זֶהוּ שֶׁאוֹמְרִים הַחֲבֵרִים, אוֹי לְאוֹתָם שֶׁעוֹבְרִים עַל דִּבְרֵיהֶם.
Continued from previous DZ
While they were walking, they met a man, and his sick son was tied to a donkey. They asked him who you are, and he told them, I am a Jew, and this is my son tied to the donkey. They asked why he was tied up. He said, I live in a village, which belongs to Romi, and this son used to study Torah every day and returned to his home and engaged in the studies. For three years, I lived in the same house, and I didn’t see anything to worry about. And one day, my son came home to repeat the things he had learned, and a spirit passed in front of him and harmed him. His mouth, eyes, and hands became crooked, and he could not speak. I come now to the cave of the lepers of Saronia, maybe they will tell me about healing him.
Rabbi Yitzchak said to him, did you know if another person was damaged in that house before? He replied, I know that a few days ago, one person was harmed in it, and they said that it was an illness, and some of them said that the spirit in the house harmed him. And then, several people entered it and were not harmed. Rabbi Yehuda and Rabbi Hezekiah said, that is what the friends said, a house that is not built righteously is haunted by the spirit of impurity, which harms its inhabitants (#150)—woe to those who ignore their advice.
Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, and support the Daily Zohar projects, 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.
** Your donation doesn’t have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
